Interview with the Author:
What initially got you interested in writing?
Initially, I loved reading favorite authors and realized I wanted to add my stories to those out there. I began by reading thrillers and mysteries and realized, due to my own profession of forensic psychologist, that I had a lot of stories to tell that people might find fascinating. The human mind is a bottomless pit of ingenuity and trickery—
How did you decide to make the move into being a published author?
I’ve been writing off and on most of my life and wanted a publisher to help me extend my readership and my love of intrigue to those who would love reading and looking forward to reading my stories.
What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?
I want readers to enjoy reading my stories and take away a knowledge of human behavior that perhaps they hadn’t considered before.
What do you find most rewarding about writing?
Journaling in itself is very therapeutic. Putting something down on paper that was never there before is in a sense inventing, creating, and giving back a part of yourself.
What do you find most challenging about writing?
The finished product that I can say came from me, like a child or an addition to this world that had not existed before and was given by the Almighty.
What advice would you give to people want to enter the field?
To keep at it and never give up. Every sentence, every word you write is a part of you that you are giving back. It means something to you and nothing is better than sharing your thoughts on life, love, etc.
What ways can readers connect with you?
