Do you have any tattoos?
One on my right calf of a multi-colored rose. Two on my right wrist/forearm (multi-colored infinity sign and above it is a vibrant feather. On my Left wrist/forearm, I have an Egyptian Shen and above that is a cool-toned feather. When did you get it/them? The Rose I got about 11 years ago and the ones on my wrists and forearms are within the last 3 years.
Is your life anything like it was two years ago?
(laughs out loud) Absolutely not. It’s similar in lots of ways, but so different in others.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve written poems/songs/a children’s story since I was young in middle school. It’s always been in me, but I’d say within the last 6 years I’ve been crafting and honing.
What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?
Write without judgement of self and believe in yourself.
Tell us something about your newest release that is NOT in the blurb.
Love and loving someone can touch the heart, mind and soul in ways that can be unimaginable.
When skeptic Marvin meets artistic Natalie in a coffee shop on a cold October morning, the two fall fast in love, but nothing is ever as easy as it feels.
Natalie believes that a divine something is guiding her life for her greater good, and it seems to be true. She lands her dream job and she and Marvin marry at a beachside castle. However, the ease and flow of their lives start to change. At the same time that Natalie becomes pregnant, Marvin experiences strange symptoms and visits his doctor.
When faced with a diagnosis that changes everything and odd dreams of the child that hasn’t yet been born, will Marvin let go of his skepticism or will he miss out on a lifetime with his loving family?
Read an excerpt:
Marvin heads into his oversized master bath to start the shower. He is sensitive when it comes to nature, so he has a top of the line water purification system that allows him to use the ocean water in his home. It siphons water from the ocean, removes the salt and impurities, and leaves him with the smoothest, cleanest water in town. He is hopeful that the city will one day take advantage of such a resourceful product, but he isn’t surprised that they haven’t. The water is silky and hot as it rains down on his body. His showerhead is automated with voice command, so he can tell it if he wants jet stream, raindrops, massage or pulsating. Marvin’s home may be more modest than most in the area, but he never held back on the luxuries of things he liked. He turns the steam feature on as he shuts the water off and grabs his towel. He loves standing in the steam, with it smelling the way only steam in a clean shower can smell. He has always been very in touch with his senses and felt them all deeply: touch, taste, smell, hearing, vision, and the unspoken sixth sense. He is unconsciously aware of his intuition because his analytical mind has yet to bring it forth; however, it will happen when the timing is right. He steps out of his steamy fortress, his hair awry, and drapes his towel over the shower door. As he steps in front of the mirror, admiring his sculpted body, he wonders if Talie might be up, if she was even awake.
