Tell me more about your latest book

My latest book KOOSHMA REBORN is the sequel to my first book KOOSHMA the ORIGIN. KOOSHMA REBORN takes you from the 1800’s where it all began into present day. Still haunted by KOOSHMA controlled by a soul thirsty witch the Wilcox bloodline is no longer safe.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing?

I would say the most challenging part of writing is thinking about what would keep the readers interested throughout the entire book. Also it’s very difficult keeping up with character development.

What motivated you to become an author?

My middle school teacher motivated me to become a writer more so it’s because my head was always filled with stories to tell.

What brought you to write your books?

Very interesting question my first book wasn’t supposed to be a book at all. It was actually a movie pitch I introduced to my brothers chad wells and tweedy francis.  Needless to say they loved the idea, but after sitting down and calculating a budget we realized it was to much money to do it justice. So next best thing was to make it into a book in hope to gaining the interest of someone whom could actually afford to fund the film. So many people liked the book to my surprise hence the sequel KOOSHMA REBORN

How many books have you written so far?

So far I have written 6 books but published three to date. The first was KOOSHMA the ORIGIN the second was a children’s book called The MISSING NAUGHTY LIST LESSON 1 sharing. The third and most recent KOOSHMA REBORN.

What book or books have had a strong influence on you or your writing?

There were many books that influenced me but the two that comes to mind and I love is The TELL-TALE HEART by Edgar Allen Poe and FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC BY V.C.ANDREWS

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

Stay CONSISTENT and write any idea you have down on anything you can find so you don’t forget. That piece of paper could be the next number one best seller
