I am originally from New York but I have lived in the Metro Detroit since I was a toddler.
I recently published my first novel. Right My Life: A Quest to Find My True Self.
When I was laid-off from my job in 2009 I decided to return to school to obtain a second masters degree it was then when I realized I not only enjoyed writing but I was also pretty good at it.
With the motivation to heal my life and the hope to inspire others to heal their lives was the inspiration to write my first book.
No I don’t but for this particular novel I would say my writing style was more descriptive writing. I wanted to extend to the reader the same or similar emotions as I felt as the writer.
I have always liked the play on words, so I decided to use the Right as in correct than to use the word Write, so while I was writing about my life I was in essence correcting it.
Yes absolutely, despite one’s challenges there are always opportunities to move beyond those challenges to manifest happiness and self-love.
Some of the experiences in the book are my own.
Such books like “Value in the Valley: A Black Woman’s Guide Through Life’s Dilemmas” and “Yesterday I Cried” by Iyanla Vanzant and most certainly “Know Thy Self “ By Dr. Venice Bloodworth.
Yes, a close friend of mine wrote a book called “Somewhere Over the Rainbow: A Quest to Find Love.
I haven’t started any new projects yet but I look forward to writing a spin-off novel based on a couple character from Right My Life: A Quest to Find My True Self.
Besides my two good friends Demetria Hoskins and Starr Burton, I would say the Motown Writer’s Network has been a good support group.
Yes, I want to be a career writer with many writing facets from writing children books to screenplays.
I would choose a different printing company, the firm wasn’t able to provide me with the interior layout that I wanted nor did the front cover look the same as the digital image.
According to my mother I was praised by my elementary school teachers for my creative readings but I never really considered writing until a few years ago.
The story is based on the character Noel, she’s a world renowned author/publisher living her dream life, she reflects on her childhood pain, the impact it had on her life and how she managed to heal her life to become whole again.
I have few favorite authors one of them is Beverly Jenkins I like how she incorporates historical Detroit facts in her writings.
No not yet.

Finding the time to write was one of my major challenges.
I learned the true concept of perseverance, I was able to muster up enough of it to go beyond my comfort zone to write about a subject matter that is not easy to have with others.
I would like to advise other writers to stay encouraged and not be swayed by others to abandon their passion for writing.
