Picking up the Pieces (Author Interview)

Picking up the Pieces looks like a great self-help guide.  Any plans to write additional books?
Yes, I’m glad that you mentioned that. God gave me this book title as a self-help guide to minister to people in 2017. I was sitting down putting a puzzle together and God spoke to me that he wanted to use this book as puzzle piece to help people to find healing, deliverance and renewal in their lives. I like to think of it as both a self-help book and as a religion book because its God bringing healing through the words on paper to others. There are so many people that have gone through pain in their relationships and have not fully understood the purpose of the people that they have connected with in the past. As I was writing the book, I also went through a healing process because I had experienced a lot of loss in my life and in my relationships. I do plan to write additional books as a sequel to Picking Up the Pieces in the future. The next book that I am currently working on is called, Accelerate. I have written three other books prior to Picking up the Pieces called, Hello My Name is Millennial, A More Simple Life, and The Majestical Land of Twinville.

What will readers get out of your book?    

My goal for this book is for readers to experience the true power of healing and deliverance in their walk with Jesus and to experience healing and deliverance in their relationships with others. I hope that when people read this book that they have a better understanding and meaning of why they have the relationships in their lives that they have and how to properly reach the connectors in their lives. I also pray that when people finish reading this book that they are changed. Its an interactive book so I hope that people do not see it as being just a book to read and add to their shelf but as one that you have to really sit down and write out what happened in your relationships and use the puzzle pieces to properly connect with the results.
What inspired you when writing Picking up the Pieces?    

God inspired me when I was writing Picking up the Pieces, he told me that it would touch a lot of lives and bring change to many people. He told me that even though this is a popular title it will not be as other self-help books, but it will be one that ministers to the hearts of people and evokes true change and deliverance in their lives.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I was called to be a writer at the age of seven years old. I was born with the gift of writing in my hands. I used to write books on paper and then staple them together when I was in elementary school and in middle school and I would sell them to my friends. I also used to write poetry and comic books. I have always had a love and passion for writing. I found that writing was indeed one of my gifts and that God had truly used my hands to be a pen of a ready writer. I noticed that I could write a book in a day, week, and in two weeks with very little effort.

When writing Picking up the Pieces did anything stand out as particularly challenging?   

When I was writing the book, I noticed a lot of warfare and challenges that started to happen in my relationships that were very challenging.

How did you come up with the concepts and ideas in Picking up the Pieces?   

God gave me the concept and idea of Picking up the Pieces from a puzzle piece.

What do you like to do when not writing? 

When I am not writing, I enjoy reading, doing puzzles, crossword puzzles, going to church, praying, traveling, and inspiring others.
