interviewing Author Lady Tracey Williams
Q1. Tell me about yourself what are your favorite books to read?
A. My favorite book is really the Holy Bible. It has every story and the character's in it. And it broadens your mind in ways beyond the natural.
I once loved Animal Farm.
Q2.When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I decided I was going to write my first children book in 2014. I was told by a church sister of mine that I should do Children books. Upon hearing at first I laughed because it sounded exciting.
Until I dug up my old bookshelf. There I found a notebook filled with small stories I have written at about 16 years old. I somehow forgot all about them. Then I thought, 'I must rekindle this gift'.
Q3.How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. Sometimes in my dream, I sleep and an entire story is played out. Then upon waking, I just give it a name. On the less spiritual side, I just sit and think of something really hilarious or catchy.
Q4. What are you working on for 2019?
A. For 2019, I plan on doing a reading workshop, where I challenge the abilities of children in my country. I intend to share my books and give them the opportunity to better their English, their grammar and their understanding.
Q5. How long have you been writing?
A. I have been writing for the past 5 years.
Q6. What advice would you give other authors?
A. My advice to other authors is that you do not have to get a Ph.D. or a Master to soldier through as an influential writer. Nor do you need to spend tuns of money to see your books published. You just need your creativity, your confidence and that little thing call your “writing pad”. Most successful authors were never birthed in college or university, but in their grade 6 class during Comprehension Skills. So whatever you choose to do, keep the vision alive and aim for the sky. And most importantly, keep it simple.
Q7. Where can people find you online?
Smashwords.com and Amazon.
Q8.Do you plan on making more books in the future?
A. . Definitely. Write now my children books are only for 3-7 years old. My next aim is to target 8-16 years.
Q9.How many books have you written?
A. I have written 7 children books and 5 Inspirationals. So in total 12.
Q10.did you go to college to be a writer?
A. No. But I did attain other education at the university level.
