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

A. I decided after a couple of nights of telling these stories to my sons before bed. My wife overheard me talking to them and suggested I record myself so after talking for 15 minutes past their bedtime one night. It turned into the first 3 or 4 pages of my first book. 

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

A. The Adventures of Melvin Walker came about funny actually. He started out as a monkey in the zoo. However, I felt it wasn’t right to try and compete with Curious George. So I based Melvin off of me growing up in NYC and my sons growing up here in VA. 

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

A.: I’ve been writing professionally now going on 4 years. 

Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A. Don’t take No for an answer. It just means not right now. You can do anything for yourself you don’t have to wait on someone else to help you make your dreams come true. Don’t ever give up on your passion. 

Q 6.  where can people find you online?

A.people can go to my website. there you can keep up with all things Melvin and see where I’m going to be next. 

Q7 do you plan on making more books in the future all of 2019 I’ll be working on the animated series and one other film project. So in 2020 hopefully I’ll be working on my first chapter book. 

Q 8 how many books have you written 

A.books total. Melvin Goes to the Ballpark, Melvin Learns How To Swim, and Melvin Learns How To Code. 

Q 9 did you go to college to be a writer

A.No I didn’t go to school to be a writer. I never saw myself as an author. I was in the music business as an executive for some years. I just recently went back to school and got my Bachelors in Business. So it’s never too late I’m 44.

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.
