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.


4. How long did it take you to write your first novel?
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.


10. What are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading a text book about qualitative design.


11. How do readers find out more about you?
Readers can find out more about me by visiting my website at
