Alva Williams


My name is Alva Williams and I live in Hampton, Virginia. I am married to LeShay Williams and together we have five children, four boys and one girl. I began writing at about age 14 and never stopped. I love reading and writing, going for long scenic walks and I am a fan of the arts themselves! I tend to be long winded when I write most of my poems, so when you read them it is in a story form that is poetic. I also enjoy going on the biggest roller coaster that I can find, I guess that is my daring side. At the end of the day I love a good book or a good movie, I'm a junkie for a good fiction or nonfiction book or movie. I hope you enjoy my book I've read it a number of times and I have not gotten bored yet, so I hope the same holds true for you. Hugs and kisses. -Alva

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
First I find out my topic, then I pray and ask God to give me the words and then I will wait a day or two, while thinking about the direction I'm going in. Then I will sit down at my computer and start, praying once again. I tend to pace a lot, look out the window as I roll words around in my head. When I come to a dead end, I'll lay down, cook, watch T.V. all the time my mind is still working on the writing project at hand. It may sound weird but that is my process.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Oh the first story that I read and loved was "Pippi Long Stockings" I remember my mother taking me out to get shoes and the whole time I was in the backseat reading that book, I was young when I fell in love with reading.
