Smashwords Interview

What inspired you to write “The Day My Soul Cried”?
Prior to writing “The Day My Soul Cried”, I struggled with following through with projects. I had all these great ideas and would start and as soon as it seemed like it was going to be a success, I’d run. But at the time, I didn't realize I was running from success. I was actually writing another book, but struggling to complete it.

“Why am I standing in my own way?” I asked myself. It was fear. Fear of success. I began to try to do some soul searching and from trying to figure it out for myself, “The Day My Soul Cried,” was born.
As an author, what is your writing process?
The most important part of the process for me is to visualize. I cannot write if I can’t see it. No matter what I’m writing – book or film – I have to see it from beginning to end in my mind first. To help me visualize, I typically write an outline, title and cover. What also works for me is to create a playlist of music that helps put me in the scene.
