When did you discover you were a writer?
I discovered I was a writer when I realized how easily and expressively the words seem to flow when I wrote school essays as a teenager. An essay I submitted evoked such a surprising and encouraging reaction from my classmates, it was then I knew it would be a profession I would someday pursue.
What influenced your writing?
My father encouraged me to use various reading materials as I learned to read. Those words from my father planted seeds and, later in life, produced a harvest that flourished into my love of the written word. The New York Times and Webster's Dictionary became my companions.
Invisible Warrior is a memoir, a valuable historical account of my growing up in a New York housing project. It is also an inspiring narrative that demonstrates success is possible even under harsh conditions. Escaping with two small children, an early pregnancy and thirty-five cents. We proved life’s possibilities and its glimmer of an indistinguishable light at the end of a dark tunnel.
