Interview with April Pipkins

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in high school.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book entitled, Destined to Be Loved, was inspired by my journey of healing from past hurts and disappointments. Having the strength to move forward and not allow my past to have control over my future, by forgiving those who hurt or disappointed me. The challenge behind navigating from one area of your life to the next can be scary, however, it can also be rewarding!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is encouraging and relating to others while allowing my imagination to run wild!
What are you working on next?
I plan on writing a small book of poems that can be used at any occasion.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The fact that I have been allowed to see another day to encourage somebody and bring a smile to their face. Sometimes, a person just need to see a smiling face and kindness.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking and watching people!
