Hi there! It is great to have you here on my blog! I am SO looking forward to getting to know you more over the next week. I know that readers of my blog will be inspired by your beginnings and your writing life.
1. Tell us a few things about yourself
Well I am a mother of 8 and grandmother 21. I always wanted a big family. Maybe it was due to me coming from a large family, a family of 4 by my mother. She is one of 25. So family is very important for us. Holidays, birthdays, weddings, family reunion and even funerals are looked upon as opportunities to get together.
2. What’s your favorite book?
Great Expectations, The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew.
3. Who is your favorite author?
4. What inspired you to want to write your book?
When I look around and see how much of my generation are doing things unthinkable. Then the next generations are following suit. You have to ask yourself. What has gone wrong? Then I realized how blessed I was as a child to have had this network of family structure in my life.
I did not have an easy life. My mother raised me and my other three siblings by herself but not alone. There was her parents, brothers, sisters, good neighbors, church and Jesus our foundation. This structure was lacking for many of my peers and even more so in this present generation.
Where we see the mentality of having a baby is a decision based on flipping a coin, he’s so cute. He will make a cute baby for me and maybe even have a reality show. I would like to do my part of bringing back family values by first injecting self-awareness, self-value, self-worth, self-standards and goals, then self-achievements.
I hope to inspire these treasures through books, imagination, and arts and gifts. See I too have made many mistakes along my journey and even now. But the way I look at it is: Each one of us are responsible for what we can do and don’t do. I might not be able to do what others can, but what I can I should. We All Can Do Our Part.
5. Tell us a bit about your current writing projects.
Pillar and His Discoveries In The Rainforest is a story for adventurous and exploring minds. It’s full of dangers and mystery for a little 7 year old who just can’t be without his best friend. Not thinking about the what-if’s only focused on saving his friend, a 30 year old sloth.
6. Tell us a bit about your writing projects.
There is the Granny Gray series which goes on and on. I don’t know if she will ever end. For there is always a lesson to learn and teach. Then there are the L R Gray stories which are for the much more mature group. There are still lessons to learn but from a much more serious view.
Like for instance The Purple Tu-lips is about bullying, The Hike is about a faith that is stronger than life itself, Conspiracy Town is about what it says, So They Think They Got Us is about a government system lead by the dark society. Then there is my story: From The Mind of Damage Goods. This is basically my beginnings.
7. What can readers expect to get from this book?
There is much to get from each of these books for every stage in life.
8. Any tips for aspiring writers?
You have to be true to your most deepest self (your soul) and never let anyone talk you down. Your voice count.
9. Any last words? Or add your contact information.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste, but your soul is an even bigger loss.
Greatness is in all of us. Make it for the good of everyone.
