What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy of writing is to be able to put my ideas into a story format that people will relate to. It is basically putting a part of me on paper. Writing, to me, is an art form of expression and release and also a way to hash out issues. I enjoy weaving story lines and adding pertinent issues within the story fabric.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the world to me. They are the ones who share in the intricate details of my expression. They relate along with me to the written words on the page and join me in the journey of the story. I have my fans in mind when I write and I hope to touch their hearts with my words.
