When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
My situation is a little unique. I never really planned to be an author. I primarily focus on music production. My experiences as a music producer led to people always asking me about my journey. Certain questions didn’t have quick answers and that’s what inspired me to write a book. I wanted to answer those questions thoroughly.
Tell me a little about your writing journey, thus far.
So far, I just completed my first book! I started writing it in November of 2019 and the release date is May 15th. I am so excited because I know this book will touch so many people!
Do you write under a pseudonym? If so explain why.
What genre do you write and why?
I only write about my experiences. I do that because a lot of people are in the same place where I once was. There are a lot of misconceptions about being an entrepreneur and I wanted to provide a fresh perspective on the topic.
What are you currently working on?
Right now I am staying focused on my book “PTO: Prayed Time Off” because this is my first book and I want to make sure I see it through. I’m excited to learn through the marketing/promotion process !
What inspired you to write your book?
God placed it on my heart to write a book about my experience of leaving my nine-to-five to do music full time. This was a decision that changed my life and mentality in a lot of ways. I wanted to share this with the world because I believe there are more people who want to leave their jobs and do something more fulfilling.
What are your top 5 favorite books?
Dave Ramsey – The Total Money Makeover
Chris Guillebeau – The $100 Startup
Donald Passman – All You Need To Know About The Music Business
Robert Greene – The 48 Laws of Power
What does literary success look like to you?
I’ve already achieved what literary success is to me. I wrote this book as a spiritual assignment. Completing it and making it available to those who need to hear this information is all the success I need. I just hope everyone who reads it is able to apply things from my life to their own situations.
How many hours a day do you write? What is your writing routine?
When I was writing the book I would spend probably about 2 hours a day on days when I would write.
If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it be and why?
Probably A Series of Unfortunate Events. I loved those books growing up!
What advice would you like to give to aspiring authors?
Just do it!!!
