My interest in writing started way back in my student days. At the time I enjoyed writing small articles on various spiritual topics.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The motivation was driven by the desire to share my life in order to make a difference in the lives of others. Also as an indie author you have 100 percent rights to your book and that's very important to me. I like that as an indie author, one has final say on any decision relating to ones own books (e.g. book price, distribution, etc.)
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is complete but not yet published. In my latest book, I share personal stories through daily devotionals on how God has helped me to overcome "fear" in my life. My first book focuses on equipping Christian dating couples with advice on how to have a God-honoring relationships. The book also has great advice for ChristIan singles on how to live God-honoring lives as they wait on God during their single season.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I believe I have a purpose to fulfill here on earth. I believe that God has called me and has also given me the talents as well as the wisdom to make a difference in the lives of other people.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like reading and growing my knowledge on various areas I'm passionate about (e.g. Dating, Marriage and Counselling). I love doing equipping and empowering workshops for single, dating and married christians. I'm very involved in my local church through the worship ministry (I play piano and drums) and through being one of family (cell) group leaders. I also love listening to music and spending time at home with my family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover most ebooks I read from the Internet (mainly online retail outlets), as well as from various social media platforms.
