Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?

A1 When my wife initially became pregnant I fell in love with the idea of having a little girl. I was more than familiar with boys throughout my life and began thinking about all of the wonderful possibilities having a little girl could bring. As her pregnancy progressed and we found out that we were going to have a girl, I began to look for fun and upbeat books about the father and Daughter relationship. Unfortunately, I kept coming up short, that is when I began writing Daddy's Wish.


Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 

A2. Daddy's Wish seemed like it was a perfect title. I wanted to convey the fact that Dads hope, wait and wish for daughters too.

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?

A.A3 & 8 I have 3 more books written as of now (yet to be published) After writing a book for my daughter I thought my son deserved one as well. "I'm Already BIG" is about being a younger sibling. The book explains how younger children are already big because of their big characteristics.

"Under The Same Sky" is a book written for children of divorce. This book explores some of the feelings and concerns that young children have while experiencing divorce. Divorce is a multi-dimensional topic and I did my best to address some situations/experiences that young readers can relate to. The book focuses more on the strong and overwhelming feelings that they may be experiencing. Its goal is to let the child know that they are loved, no matter the situation and that it is not their fault.

Lastly, I have written a book (Untitled) addressing children with disabilities. The main goal of the book was to show the reader that children with disabilities are children first and that their disabilities don't define who they are.



Q 4. how long have you been writing?

A.A4 & A7 I have always written. Whether poetry, songs or just short stories for my children. I have always found writing very therapeutic. When I discovered there was a lacking of children's books addressing marginalized youth I became invigorated to write with a real and important purpose.




Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A.A5 I would advise other Authors not to wait or second guess themselves. I doubted giving my book to a publisher for 6 years. I doubted the Kickstarter campaign would be successful. I doubted I would ever receive an I review or any recognition. I was wrong on All Counts. If you believe in what you are writing then push, push with all your might! Your thoughts, passion, and creativity could change someone's life for the better




Q 6.  where can people find you online?

A. People can find me on Facebook mostly right now @DaddysWish8. I will be setting up an official authors site soon and will link it to my Facebook.



Q 8 how many books have you written 

A. I have 3 more books written

.

Q 9 did you go to college to be a writer

A. I actually went to school for Sociology and have earned my Elementary teaching certification. I currently work with acquired brain injury clients.

Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
_Kisses from Sardinia _has all the makings of a novel, but it’s a true story—a story of chance, romance, and happenstance that every woman, young or old, should read and thus be inspired. Laurie’s tale of adventure will awaken youn…

Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 
A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A.  A lot of brainstorming and researching to make sure the title isn’t a…
