I am one of the most positive and congenial personalities you would ever meet!
I dwell on inspiring self-confidence in everyone I come in contact with believing that, if you look closely enough beyond each man's flaws, there is a plethora of potential waiting to be discovered, unearthed and channeled in the right direction.
Celebrating others successes is like applauding my own. I believe that God created us equal and part of a universal chain where we are only as strong as the weakest link.
I have a fascinating imagination, always stretching for limits beyond the scope of doubt and fear and believing that one day, just when I least expect, those possibilities will come within comfortable reach.
Marie Curie, the famous French/Polish chemist and physicist said it best: "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood..."
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small district called Buena Vista in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Growing up was not easy for me as I didn't know my father because he left Jamaica when I was a baby. My mom did the best she could under the circumstances but living with an abusive partner (my step-dad) made it very difficult to always be there. I made the decision from a very early age that should I have a family, I would ALWAYS be there for them, no matter how difficult things become, because the last thing I want is to leave my wife and children behind to suffer. And then it happened! My subsequent marriage in 1993 to my beautiful wife Pauline was one the most beautiful things that ever happened in my life! Our wedding was big but very humble given our financial limitations. This experience plays into the writing of my book because Jamaica is such a breathtaking island for weddings and honeymoons!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always felt the unease of a writer in me. I feel that if I commit to writing, I would surprise myself with what might come out of my head :) This ebook is kind of like a tester (or teaser) to see if others like you feel the same way I do.It also gives me a great sense of hope that I can write a book from the corner of my bedroom or around my kitchen table as a complete "Who, Michael Roache, never heard that name before" to a "Michael Roache, you mean the NY Times Best Selling Author?"
