Why did you decide to write Someone Needs to Read This?
I found myself waking up almost every night or early morning, and God kept dropping words of wisdom into my spirit. I would then post these on my Facebook pages with the title: Someone Needs to Read This! I had been thinking of doing a 4th book and I was led to those posts and the title I had been using on Facebook. I realized that was my book.
What’s the best part of being an author?
Having a voice and a platform to use it on. The writing process is wonderfully creative and fulfilling, but even if no one ever reads your book, that won’t change the fact that you were able to put all of these magnificent thoughts on paper.
What’s the worst part of being an author?
So many story ideas, and so little time; especially if you don’t have the luxury to focus only on writing.
Who is your favorite character in the book, and why?
This book doesn’t have characters – at least not any with names. It’s a book about finding a better way to get through, move through and live through life. I think I like the forward better than anything.
What was the hardest part of writing the story?
Again, it’s not the traditional book with characters that have names. This book is a book of many stories – yours, mine, and many other people. It’s a book about how we feel about our lives, our careers, our relationships, our world around us.
If you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
God’s Ms Anyhow – a lot of times we intentionally pick and choose how obedient we will be toward God. While I am not perfect, I made up my mind about 20 years a go to strive for obedience to God. Gods Ms Anyhow means that whatever you say God, I might not want to do it, my friends may not want me to do it, I may not know how to do it, I may be scared to do it…… but I am going to do it anyhow.
What is something readers would be surprised to know about you?
That I am a silly person that loves to laugh. I spend so much time “doing and achieving” that most people don’t know I’m just a big kid that loves walking and playing in the rain, and just being silly.
What are you currently working on right now?
I am employed full-time in Public Information, I have a young adult ministry, and I do workshops for young adults. I am currently working on my next book – A Little Something to Ease the Pain.
Do you have anything else you would like to add?
The greatest blessing of books are the lessons that we learn from them, the lives we shared with others, and they wisdom within the fountain of words that we drink from. Reading opens a whole new world to us and also increases our IQ.
