When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
At a young age I had a vivid imagination, which turned into simple stories and poetry creates by my the canvas of my mind. Throughout the years I became drawn to movies that involved some type or mystery or suspense. The movie itself wasn’t the "eye-catcher" but the concept behind its creation is what captivated my attention, to some degree. After going through college, I became drawn to my creative side. When I wrote my first book, "Caveat of Penitent" I became pulled into the story by my imagination. From the point to now, all of my books enter my mental imagery, and then I simply write the things I see from my imagination. Its like I’m writing the details from a movie.

Even thought this particular book is written from a seventeen’s point of view, peer pressure and bullying is not subject to age, but rather an acceptance. You have to stand against adversity is its many forms or become subject to its destruction.
How do you find time to write?
Being an inspirational writer, I don’t have a set time to write. As I go throughout my day-to-day activities when inspiration strikes, I write at that given moment and continue with time itself permits. But if I had to choice a particular time it would be in the early morning when everything is quiet except for wondering thoughts.
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
There is no singular person that I would chose. Since every author is endowed with a gift, filtered through their experiences, I would simply love to sit with those who were considered the fathers of literature and sup from the wisdom of the gift.
