Interview with D.Darrell Turner

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The joy of writing comes from knowing and understanding that my writings provide ideas and solutions for people that may be looking for simple answers to difficult questions in life. My first writings were born out of my personal journal of my frustrating and confusing life. The more I continued to write was the more I realized the solution to major issues were hidden within my words. My greatest joy is the exciting response from readers who tells me how much of a blessing my books are to them.
What are you working on next?
The Power of YOU, an inspirational book designed to help you come in contact with... YOU!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Bible - taught me very important and valuable life principles.
The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell - taught me valuable leadership principles.
The ABCs of Success by Bob Proctor - He is the greatest inspiration of my life.
The Secret by Rynda Bynes - taught me how to live life in the spirit.
Uncommon Wisdom for Winners by D. Darrell Turner - an expression of how important every unique being is to society.
Who are your favorite authors?
John C. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You
Bob Proctor, The ABCs of Success: The Essential Principles from America's Greatest Prosperity Teacher
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My business partner Nikki. I gave her some of my writings to use for scripts in motivational videos that she was producing. The next day she called me and asked me if I really wrote the material, as if she thought that I was giving her something that someone else wrote. But I said no, I wrote this and she said, "you're kidding me." Very next words were, "You have to do something with this. You have to let people read this. God did not give you these ideas for you to just sit here and hold them in a folder." So I followed your advice and I started posting some of my writings on Facebook and Twitter and I got great responses. Then I encourage myself to write a book. I did write a book but the problem I faced having a very hard time finding a publisher who wouldn't hold me accountable for $2,000 to $5,000 upfront as a deposit for the for the book publishing. But then I learned through research that I could do an eBook and it would cost almost nothing to publish it. Then I released my first book as an e-book on called "Married a Lemon" (no longer available). But it really motivated me to keep going and write another, then I wrote another, and another, and another. Now today I've written six books and my 7th book is now available at So that's the story behind how I became an indie author. Thanks to my business partner Nikki!
