I am a professional who now knows what my purpose in life is. It is not to sit down, muzzle my mouth, and continually let people get over on me.

I know my worth and its time to speak up, activate my faith, and walk into my destiny that God has in my life.

I encourage you to take a leap of faith and get out of your comfort zone.

If you are wondering what you should do next well take a step back and write down all the things you are good at.

Out of those things which bring you joy, fulfillment, and you can ultimately see yourself making a change not just in your life but in your community and beyond.

Then formulate a plan on how you can do those things and still bring in revenue because times are changing and one thing is for sure these jobs can come and go, but your empire and the legacy you build will ALWAYS be in existence as long as you have the right foundation and continue to cultivate it.

You too can be all the things you ever imagined so stop limiting yourself by the things people say you cannot do or the limitations that have been placed on you
Q. Tell us something about the books that you have written and the story behind them.
Chocolate Drop in Corporate America: From The Pit To The Palace was birthed out of frustration, but it was needed.

I needed to share and combat the systemic issues and racism in the workforce. I wrote my book to encourage, inspire, motivate, and teach others to do the same.
Q. What place does writing hold in your life, how has been your writing journey so far?
A very special place in my heart. It is therapeutic and writing has been an outlet for me.
Q. What is your writing process, a typical writing day routine?
Some of my best thoughts come late at night or throughout the day.

I use either my phone or notebook whichever is closest.
Q. What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Social Media and word of mouth. Still learning and growing
Q. What do you think makes a book sell, or makes a reader buy it?
Catchy Title and the ability to relate to it.
Q. What's the most moving or affecting thing a reader has said to you?
A reader said my book was right on the money and he is now writing his book.
Q. What are your favourite three books, and why?
Bible - it helps me when I feel like giving up.

Boundaries- it helped me set up healthy boundaries and not allow others to steal my time, etc.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven - I learned so many wisdom nuggets from this book.
Q. Who are your favourite three authors and what do you like the most about them?
N/A. Too many to choose from
Q. Tell us about the books that you are currently writing and their progress.
Currently not writing another one. Just brainstorming on what my next project is going to be.
Q. What challenges do you think are faced by writers, what's the worst thing about the book industry according to you?
Writer's block and self-critique. The book industry is competitive but you just have to find your niche.
Q. Apart from writing, what goals do you want to achieve in life?
Travel worldwide, learn new cultures and be able to touch many lives.
Q. At QwertyThoughts.com, we are trying to bring authors and readers under the same roof, to connect, discuss and socialize over books. What's your take on this?
Great idea and I think we can learn a lot from one another. Authors want to create and readers want to escape and submerged themselves in a good read.

We can pick apart the reader's wants and needs.
Q. What message do you want to share with budding writers?
Never Let The Fear of Striking Out Keep You From Playing The Game - Babe Ruth

Don't talk yourself out of the dreams and goals you have for yourself.
