Where did you get the idea for your first book?

I was surfing the internet for writing prompts one day and came across a few that looked promising. One of them was, the pizza guy, a hug that goes too far, and something unexpected under the bed, or something to that effect. At some point looking through them all Gertie popped into my head. I thought to myself "hmm I've never read anything like that, this could be interesting." Bits and pieces of the story started coming to me little by little and eventually the whole thing just took off from there with Augie and Gertie leading the way.

How many books are there in the August Barton Series?

So far I have four planned out in total. The Tribulations of August Barton is book one and The Revelations of August Barton is book two. As for the other two books I do not have release dates set at this time and plan for those to come out later on. Be sure to follow me on social media and subscribe to my newsletter for updates!

How do you come up with such relatable characters?

I get a lot of inspiration from other books, people in real life, music, People in movies and TV Shows ect. Sometimes the characters are just there in my head like he/she/they are already a living breathing person. I use what I know from real life to make them as real/relatable to readers as possible in my stories.

Do you have any advice for newbie/aspiring writers?

Decide what your long-term and short-term goals are.Do your own research and connect with other writers. The more information you have the better whether it’s useful right now or will be later on in the future. Figure out what sources of information are credible and what sources are not. Read books, articles, blog posts, and never give up.

How do you get inspired to write?

I listen to music, go for walks, watch movies/TV shows, and read a lot. Finding ways to let your mind relax can help you start to absorb ideas and let inspiration come to you.
