I've been writing since 2002. "WTF is J.E. Vader!?" is the first book that I've published in the self-improvement market. In addition to it being a self-improvement book, it is an introduction of me to my readers. Later this spring, "Abstract Imaginings of J.E. Vader!" will be released and is a collection of poetry and short stories. The genre of my novels is urban thrillers and the first of four novels in the Queen of Hearts Series - "DUCHESS, Part One, Chance Encounter," will debut in 2015.
When did you first start writing?
I first began writing in November of 2002. At the time, me and my wife & kids were living with my gracious, patient mother-in-law, while we waited for our house to be built. I remember the day I began writing. I was thumbing through a few paperbacks of my MIL's that were on a bookshelf, when I became aware of the fact that I could write just as good, if not better, than some of the authors' work I was looking at.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love it when then characters that I've made up in my head begin to take on a life of their own and begin to do the most remarkable, unexpected things! Storytelling is so fulfilling for me. This is what I love about writing...sitting snug in front of the keyboard, creating or releasing pent up thoughts and emotions that have been trapped and milling around in my head for days, weeks, or even years. I have dreamt of this moment all of my life--the moment when I can truly say, "Hey, I have created something that is a success." I am intrigued by how effortlessly all of this has been. I am where I want to be because of my thoughts. It never feels as if I'm working when I write. I've learned that Purpose + Passion = Destiny. Everyday, I feel as if I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing.
The ebook "WTF is JE Vader!?" is an introduction to me, author J.E. Vader! It is my debut publication and in it I’m transparent as I share my backstory, i.e., how I got from there to here and everything in between. I also share with you my affirmations, mantras, and other awesome helpful tips that will kick start you towards your own paths of attainment.
