Q&A:

 

 What do you do and Why do you do it?
I am a creative writer, author, host.
 Tell us about your most recent work.
The critically acclaimed Lyrical Soul: Lyrical Quotes for the Mind, Body and Spirit is the author’s second creative gift to the world. Lyrical Soul is a positive book of quotes and positive affirmations for women of all ages and backgrounds. Its set to spark the inner warrior in any woman who picks up the book and reads it, to touch her inner glow so inspire her to be greatest person she can be.
 Who inspires you?
Those who just go for it meaning people who no matter what just put their, gifts and talents out there and have no apologies about doing so and just going for what they love in this world. Individuals who never give up and don’t worry about the naysayers and doubters have to say. Individuals who are just normal every day people who do extraordinary things. People who use their talents to for positive things and show that hey if i can do this so can you. Iron sharpens Iron
 What do you consider your “Masterpiece” at this time?soul of a man
My master piece at this time would have to be all of my works. I am an artist and i am always coming up and, doing creative things. This journey takes you down so many different avenues. I love them all uniquely they are an extension of my self and of my creativity. It’s almost like asking a parent which child is your favorite. It is just one of those things where your works are a part of you and you are part of them. If i was to pick one out of all of them so far it is probably Lyrical Soul.
 What is your motto in life?
No one can showcase your talents like you can. Dream Big so you can Achieve Bigger.
 Name your wildest dream. The one you can not imagine achieving, but would love for it to come true.
My wildest dream would be to sit across Barack Obama and just talk to him about his time in the white house and staying cool under pressure. Ask him what does it take to be break in a world where people have such harsh judgments about you. What was it to inspire so many people you would never get to meet in your lifetime, but to always be remembered throughout all time as someone who achieved the impossible.
 What is your favorite quote?
Heart Of a Lion Soul Of a Man we need to have the pride of the lion, but still remember that we are human, but we can be the kings and queens of our own jungles.
When it is all said and done, what would you like to be remembered for?
