Queenie’s Writer’s Week with Author Neal Owens

Can you please tell us a little about Mirrors of Life?

Mirrors of Life vividly explores contemporary experiences of black people in America through the emotional tale of a mother and her children. It’s a tale of faith and perseverance that leads to intrigue when her spiritually inclined and ambitious son, Derrick, attempts to build a civic-minded conglomerate that undercuts the retail and gas prices in America.

Please share your favorite lines or quotes from the book.

I have many favorite lines and quotes in this novel, so it’s very hard to choose one or two. “The heart knows that we are made to be righteous. It’s the mind that must accept the truth, or the heart will become wicked.”

What inspired this book?

Barack Obama and 33 years of serving at-risk youth and families. 

How did you get to know your main character? Did they ever surprise you?

The novel has two protagonists. Both are figments of my imagination with the knowledge of knowing oneself leads to knowing one’s purpose, which leads to fulfilling one’s life.

What was your favorite scene to write?

I have many favorite scenes in this book. Every chapter has favorite scenes.

What was the most difficult scene to write?

I didn’t have a difficult scene to write because the story is written in my mind before I started writing. But if I had to choose one, it was the scene with Mister in the alley.

What do you want people to take away from reading this book?

I want people to be inspired, enlightened spiritually and philosophically, and to find solutions to solving problems in their lives.

What are you currently working on?

I am currently promoting Mirrors of Life Part 2: The Fight for Political Power.

What other releases do you have planned?

My future release is a collection of Short Stories that apocalyptic, dystopian, romantic, dramatic, horror, and satire.
