My Visions of Reality (Author Interview)

My Visions of Reality looks like a great personal poetry book.  Any plans to make it into a series?  
Yes, because of it how we live our lives daily and how our perspective is in life. It will either make you or break you in life however, it can be a treaty because we can be deceiving on the things we can't seem to control. 

What will readers get out of your poems?   
Readers will get out of this poem, is by seeing something bigger within themselves. That their not alone and that, they can make their dreams into a reality. The traumas, the trails, the pain, and the struggles, they can come to a realization with my poems and making the right decisions in their life.  I believe that the readers will find themselves as a masterpiece because God made them as a masterpiece and be for who they are. Not feeling afraid, and not feeling like an outcast, because I want the readers to figure out for who they are, or find out their talent they can use by not going to the wrong pathway or something that makes them happy. Having love for themselves can help them love other people and will see the positive side of their life. Knowing that, the readers are not alone, because God love them for who they are, because I want them to think there's always a blessing and miracles in their life, because they haven't seen it yet, but by God grace it will be shown and praying, because a church once said, our life is not a duty, but devotion, not legalism, but love. 

 What inspired you when writing My Visions of Reality?   
What inspired me to write my visions of reality, the of 15 years old, I was in a trauma situation. I was suicidal, felt alone, felt like an outcast, fear, depression, and anger every emotion I felt that could of kill me and just give up. I started writing my feelings and pain in a journal because that's the only way that I can cope through because I didn’t have anybody to vent to. I thought it wasn't something I was serious about to publish and share to people because I had fear within me, not only that I was young didn't know what to do. I'm now 28 years old, As I gain more trials in life, and faith, I told myself, I want to make a difference though, the youth's, and young adults because I feel like they felt the same way I did. I want to connect and relate my trials, my faith, and trauma through the readers who's been the same situations as me. I can be someone who can be an influencer by taking action to save souls and making a difference. Or somebody that can be influenced on what I write about and they can learn from it. As a believer, I believe there hope in every life and God brought me to do my book because I can make a big impact through someone life and changing their perspective with their lifestyle. 

When did you decide to become a writer?  
When I was 27 years old I’ve been wanting to be a writer, but never pursued it because I wasn’t in a stable place and didn't believe I could do it. As I pray to God, go to church, and do bible study, God enlighten me to pursue my book the year of 2019. Knowing that I can make a impact on people lives and making a difference, and knowing that I’ve been through a lot with my health, my faith, and family had given me to write about my life. Especially the trauma I’ve overcome and I want to put it into a book, because as I surround myself with youth’s and young adults, giving them the best advice I can give, I’ve realized I want to put my pain, feelings, my faith, happiness, and people in my book.

When writing My Visions of Reality did anything stands out as particularly challenging?   
Yes, by sharing my trials, my faith, and my beliefs with God. Especially my beliefs with God, because I know people have a different perspective in their life on what they believe. I believe we go through the same situations and can relate, and share what we have learned and discover. I’m not a writer who will judge, but I’m a writer who wants to make a difference and making a big impact through people. 

How did you come up with the ideas in My Visions of Reality?   
I came up with the with my visions of reality, throughout my struggles, my faith, God, and my trials. it helps me foresee the beauty of God, and help me spill my deep feelings and though with my pain. With the struggles, it’s natural because its what I’m going through daily in my life. 

What do you like to do when not writing?  
What I like to do when I’m not writing is, I like to sing, going to church every Sunday, being with friends and family, bible study, shopping, outdoors, going to the gym, vacation, full-time student, Part-time nanny, and anything that will keep me going to make my day active.
