Q - Who/what was your inspiration to write this book?
A - My son was my inspiration for writing Jamie’s Pet.
Q - What motivated you to eventually begin work on this book?
A - When Jamie was younger, he liked it when I would tell him stories with his name inserted in them. It made him feel special. Jamie heard a song on the radio, ‘Jamie’s Cryin,’ and he thought the song was written for him. No matter how many times I told him it wasn’t. Jamie did not want to hear it. He wouldn’t take ‘NO’ for an answer. So, I just let him be. I decided to write a story for him about him. Then, he told me I was the best mom. That’s all I needed to hear.
Q - Was this book influenced by your own personal life experiences?
A - I guess it was. I took Jamie to visit a pet store when he was little and this is how our visit went.
Q - How do you overcome writers block? How long did it take for you to complete the manuscript?
A - I found the best way for me to overcome writers block was to step away from my manuscript. I would watch TV or a movie, listen to music, or clean the house. Sometimes it would take a few hours to a few weeks before I went back to the manuscript. Once I stepped away, I didn't think about the manuscript at all. I just cleared my mind. Then, out of nowhere, ideas would come flowing and I could go back to writing again.
It took me about 6 months to complete the manuscript. I kept revising it. I would leave it for awhile, then go back, and read it again. The process would repeat itself until I was happy with the manuscript and nothing else needed to be changed.
Q - Is this your first officially published work? Are you working on another book or sequel/prequel?
A - Yes, Jamie’s Pet is my first officially published work. I am in the process of writing a second book.
Q - What types of books do you read for leisure? Do the books you read for leisure influence what you write?
A - I read autobiographies like Michelle Obama, Shania Twain, Tina Turner, Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt for example.
I also read cookbooks, and cake decorating books. I read them like novels.
Q - Discuss the pride of being a published author.
A - The pride of being a published author is like nothing I felt before I was so proud of myself, so happy, so gitty, and so relieved it was over and finally published. My baby is now my reality. No matter who I came across I pulled 'Jamie's Pet' out of my purse to show them my book.
Q - How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
A – My process of writing never changed when I published my first book. I still follow the same process because it works for me.
Q – Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
A – I am more of an original writer than trying to deliver what my readers want. Less pressure as a writer.
Q – If you could tell your younger self anything, what would it be?
A – The thing I would tell my younger self would be to be more disciplined with my writing. Write about everything. This would help polish my writing skills and make me more confident as a writer.
Q – What does literary success look like to you?
A – Literary success looks like J. K. Rowling. I would love to be successful like her.
Q – What’s the best way you think to market your book?
A – The best way to market my book is Press Releases, Book Fairs, Advertising, and Book Signings. Basically, as much exposure as possible to get the word out there.
Q – What kind of research do you do? How long do you spend researching before beginning a book?
A – The research I did was taking my son to the pet store to see what kind of animals they had there, what products they sold, and what a pet store looked like.
Q – How many hours a day do you write?
A – I write about 4 hours a day. If I have ideas, I write. I don’t force the process.
Q – What are the ethics of writing about your book?
A – The ethics of writing about my book was to make my book perfect, promote and market the book everywhere and treat my book as a small business venture that must succeed. Do everything I can to make the book well known and for every child to have a copy and love the book.
