Interview with PR Huckans

What's the story behind your latest book?
We take words for granted. We speak without thinking and disregard the consequences. My latest book focuses on the overused word "Love." We say it without meaning or depth and then are amazed when people don't live up to our expectations of the concept. My aim is to change that practice...to recognize the word and it's original intent.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have years of experience listening to and comforting others. I hear so many comments about how empathetic and consoling I can be, how useful and timely my advice is, so I wanted to attempt to help a larger audience.
What are you working on next?
My last book isn't available yet for Smashwords due to contract conflicts, but it deals with being content with what we have, where we are and where we want to be. It's about focus and priorities. My next book will deal with the way in which we interact with others. The words we use, the attitudes we take and the difficulties we face in dealing with flawed humans with baggage (in other words...everybody!).
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The peace of mind and clarity it takes to focus on my thoughts and how I want to convey them to others. The thought that what I write may help others find solutions, peace, joy, happiness and contentment with their lives.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Traveling, learning, bird watching, and any outdoor activities.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The beauty and magnificence of this wonderful world we live in! We are so blessed and yet take so much for granted.

Love, such an easy word to say, such a difficult and complex thing to understand. Often misused, misunderstood, misconstrued, and watered down, it is a magnificent word and concept that needs our full attention. We need to love intentionally. Love is not a hollow declaration from the lips, it's a resolution of the mind, a determination of the heart..it's a choice. Choose to love..Like You Mean It
