How many do you have in the works?
I’m working on combining two pieces of my work, “Old Testament Bible Trivia Multiple Choice Genesis-II Kings”, and “New Testament Bible Trivia Fill In The Blanks From Matthew-Revelation.” My second piece of work is a novella that I’m currently working on entitled, “Nettie.” This novella is about a mother who escaped from slavery and was terrified to learn that her nine year old daughter was kidnapped and sold into slavery and possibly living in the very house she had escaped from.
Are the characters in your book important?
Yes, they are very important since they make the story. I want them to take on a life and to have such a presence that the reader feels as if they are there witnessing the story and the outcome.
Tell us about your book, characters
Well, I have written various books with several characters. I guess if I had to choose one of my favorites it would be the character(s) from the book entitled, “I Can Be Anything I Want To Be.” I love this eBook because it challenges the imagination of a child. It allows them to see pictures that will awake their imagination and encourage them to reach for the stars. From this book my quote was created, “When you encourage a child you elevate a child.” This eBook is available in Afrikaans, English, French, Japanese, and Spanish and will impact many children lives.
Do you research for your books?
Some of them yes, but not all it depends on what subject I’m taking on. If it is biblical yes I do.
Can you tell us more about the coming up events in your life?
I’m looking forward to finishing and releasing my novella “Nettie.” I’m a candidate for a position on the City Board and I’m elated about that.
Thank you in advance for supporting this author.
