The Secret of The Seed (Author Interview)

The Secret of the Seed looks like a great children’s book with a powerful message. Any plans to write additional books or turn it into a series? 
Yes, actually I do plan to turn into a series based on a cartoon series that I am writing called Nahla’s Universe. 

What age group are you aiming for? 
I truly believe that my messages are universal. They are cosmically therapeutic messages for the child in all of us. Every person is child like in some stage of their life whether or not you are learning something new or encountering a situation you have never faced etc. It is important to connect with that part of ourselves and encourage and empathize and forgive and love it the way we would any other child.

What inspired you when writing The Secret of the Seed? 

My biggest inspiration is my daughter and my hopes for the world that she will be living in. It is important to see yourself reflected in the world that you live in. It boosts confidence, self efficacy and promotes overall positive mental health. Currently, there is a huge lack of representations of same sex families in children’s developmental material. I am doing my part to bridge that gap.

When did you decide to become a writer? 
I believe becoming a writer chose me. Various events and decisions after following my instincts and facing my fears lead me here. I have be given an assignment to express these messages in my own unique way. Like the wind that is giving to an instrument. My creative expressions are the music that is being made to include writing.

When writing The Secret of the Seed did anything stand out as particularly challenging? 
The main challenge is always getting out of my own way. I got to a point where I was nitpicking at little things and I had to finally release it as it was. So that I can take the next step and just get better with time.

How did you come up with the story in The Secret of the Seed? 
Something I tell my daughter every night is that she is perfect, whole, and complete. I wanted a way to communicate this message to everyone in a very relatable way. To hopefully inspire other to have more self love and transparency. That will inevitably help us love others which can change the world.
What do you like to do when not writing? 
When I am not working I am spending time with my family/close friends doing just about anything. We have cookouts and sometime take the children to amusement park or my wife and I play hide and seek and tons of imaginary games with our daughter. Family time is the best time.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?
I have a website as well as social media sites where they can stay current on all the excited upcoming books and shows from Transparency TV.
