INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR - ALEJA BENNETT
It is a great pleasure to have ALEJA BENNETT today. A very warm welcome, ALEJA and thanks ALEJA for giving us the chance to get to know you more and also for allowing us a glimpse of the world that you have created inside your writing. Thank you very much. Let her walk through her profile and book, as appended below, before we kick off the Q + A session.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR - ALEJA BENNETT
Aleja Bennett was adopted in the early seventies after being abandoned and left in an apartment alone with her older siblings. The Author was only six months old and suffered with pnuemonia shortly after that.
Aleja Bennett was adopted at the age of two years by a woman who was barren. The couple abused, starved, tortured, rejected and neglected Aleja until they threw her to the cold streets at the age of nineteen.
Aleja would not have an abortion as her adopted parent's suggested so she was tossed out to the lonely cold dark streets with no money, clothes, coat or food.
She gave birth to Jessica June 30th 1992 and married in 1994 to a drug addict who stole and robbed her soul just as her adopted parents did. She looked for love in all the wrong places while alcohol absorbed all of the pain she kept a secret.
Aleja did seek help from the grandmother Of Jessica and she then manipulated and kept Jessica away from her mother after all Aleja had was her children.
The other two children are with a drug addict Aunt which is the ex husbands sister. Aleja has one in her life and Jessica has two books while her mother Aleja Bennett has eight in total.
They both write to share their pain, strength, struggle and hope to the nation.
ALEJA BENNETT the author of the books below.

Q & A portion:
James: Perhaps you may share with us your feeling when you first meet up your daughter at your first reunion.
Aleja : I was very excited, happy and over joyed and had already cried on the long bus ride to her college in Wisconsin.
James: When did you begin to write?
Aleja : At the age of 25 while walking into my first A.A. meeting they gave me a key chain and it printed the words being alive which was my very first poem written
James : What make you to think of publishing a book to share with others ? So far what is your worst criticism/ attacks and how you overcome it.
Aleja: Over coming and surviving being an unwanted adopted child. Having the courage to remain standing through all the turmoil living with this strange family. No criticism attacks yet so I guess that is a plus for me.
James: Where do you get the courage to do so?
Aleja: Only God because the flesh is so weak and wanted to give up so many times but he kept whispering Aleja I love you and you will rise above this abuse and help others with your writing and singing.
James: Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?
Aleja: I have eight books in total and they are a variety of poetry, love, strength, self help, spirituality, romance, passion, struggle, triumph, courage, bravery, empowerment, recovery and all that life may throw our way. I have written books that go in to my abuse and how I have survived it. It took a strong will to live, forgive, love and be loved.
James: Is there anything else you would like your readers to pay special attention in regards to your book, which you have not mentioned above?
Aleja: My books are suitable for all ages except some of the love poems that would be more appropriate for older adults, couples and married partners. I write to heal a hurting nation from all the chaos that goes on from childhood. A child is suppose to be taken care of but often they are abused and take off living a life that can be harmful to them. My books can put a stop to the hopeless, powerless, addict, alcoholic and the depressed.
James: When do you plan to publish your book 2.
Aleja: All 8 books are published
James : How many volume of books for the above series, if applicable ?
Aleja: 2 series for All I Can Do Is Stand and the other six are inspirational poems
James: Tell us your guided principle that governs your life? How you cultivate these values?
Aleja: God governs my life because without him there would be no Aleja, love, forgiveness and healing also governs my life. I cultivate them in my books, groups, singing and also to my daughter
James: Any other advice which you like to share with our readers ?
Aleja: June 24th 5:30-6pm I will be on blog talk radio show and I love to interact with people even though I'm busy at times. I have groups on Face Book and a fan page soon a toll free number to reach out and talk to me live. God bless you all, I love you and God does too.
Thank again Aleja Bennett for joining us today. Let us wish her a Success.
