2. Who or what inspires your writing?
Life inspires me to write. I was inspired to write Teen Girls Need
L.O.V.E. after hearing about so many teens committing suicide after
being bullied. My heart went out to the teens. I felt it was important
to write a book that shows teens that they can overcome any problem
life throws their way.


3. When did you know you would be a writer?
I knew I wanted to be a writer my senior year of high school. I took a
competitive speaking class and enjoyed seeing my writing come to life.

It took me six months to write my first book. I was juggling school,
work, and writing.


5. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
The hardest part of writing is staying focused. I have so many
different things going on at once that I get easily distracted so I
try to put myself on a writing schedule.


6. Do you have any writing rituals?
My writing rituals consist of writing the beginning and ending then
filling in the middle of the story.


7. Have you written any thing else?
This is my first non-fiction book. I've written fiction books, poems,
and short stories.


8. Any advice to aspiring writers?
My advice is to have thick skin because everyone is not going to like
your work. Sometimes you may get writer's block or feel like the end
is not in sight. Take a break if you have to, but finish the
product.It is nothing more rewarding then seeing your work come to
life.


9. Who is your favorite Author? What is your favorite book?
I have too many to choose just one favorite. I like books from many
different genres.

I'm currently reading a text book about qualitative design.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
