Now the interview with the Author of the Book, 

When did you begin to write?

I first started writing stories when I was about nine years old. I began writing to publish last April and published my first novel, Deception in November. (Deception is available for free on Kindle this week, you can grab it here: 

http://www.amazon.com/Deception-The-Transformed-ebook/dp/B00ADWBNDS/)


When did you first discover that you were a writer?

When I wrote my first story in school. I loved it and started writing stories for fun on a regular basis.


How much did you write before you were published?

I filled many journals with stories between the time that I was nine and about twenty. Then I stopped writing for a long time until last April I rediscovered my dream to publish novels.


What is your favorite part of writing?

I love creating the stories and watching them come to life. Once I get the basic details figured out and start writing, the story just takes off. What's the most fun is when I'm writing and something happens that surprises even me. Sometimes I have to alter my plans for the story, but it's almost always for the better!


Tell us about your latest release.



Betrayal is the second book in The Transformed series. Deception is the first book, the one that I mentioned above which is free on Amazon this week. 


The series is the story of Alexis Ferguson, who begins to notice that there is something different about her. At first she thinks it's as simple as being adopted, but what she discovers turns her world completely upside down. 

She must face a new reality that she thought only existed in horror stories and nightmares. She has to face a destiny that was planned long before her birth, in a place that she didn't even know existed, which could cost her her life.
Wow! This book sounds really good. Are you planning on writing more in the years to come?


Yes, there will be a total of five books in this series. In May, I'm also releasing a shorter novel that has nothing to do with the series. I plan to write a lot of books!

So far what is your worst criticism/attacks, and how have you overcome it?

I haven't run into any of that yet, but most authors do, so I'm sure that it's only a matter of time.


What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?

I'm excited about publishing three books in six months, when I publish my third book in May. So far I've published two books in three months. It's very exciting!


What does your writing process look like?

1. Think up the main idea of the story.
2. Create the characters, world, and plot around the idea.
3. Write the first draft and fill in all the details.
4. Edit: fill in the gaps, fix errors, rewrite where needed.
5. Read on my kindle to get a different reading experience.
6. Beta readers give opinions and edits.
7. Two to three edits with re-writes.
8. Run through grammar check.
9. Read through.
10. Publish.

How did you get published?

I chose to self publish through Amazon and Barnes and Noble because the process is so much more quick than with the big publishing companies.


How do you come up with title of your books?

I usually write most of the book and the look at the themes and choose one and pick a name based on that. 


Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?

They are fun, mysterious and also deal with issues from real life. In my first book, the issue of bullying was addressed. The issue of adoption runs through the series because the main character was adopted. I hope to inspire people as well as entertain.

Tell us your guiding principle that governs your life?

I believe in helping and inspiring others.


How have you cultivated these values?

One way is by using my personal development blog.

Do you have any advice for writers looking to get published?

Learn from others who have been through the process. That's the BEST way to learn how to be successful. That's what I've done, and I've been able to achieve far more than I had originally hoped!
