1) What do you want a reader to gain from reading your works?
I write books to show that no matter how dark the circumstances, there is always hope.
2) What are your three top suggestions on becoming an author, or being a pleasure writer?
My top suggestion is to study the craft of writing. My favorite book on the craft of writing is John Truby's Anatomy of Story and my favorite online class on writing is by Margie Lawson.
3) To the youth of today, if you could tell them one thing, what would it be?
To not give up on your dreams. I'm living proof that dreams do come true.
