When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
Initially, becoming a writer was not my cup of tea. I hated to write by hand, and I was often told I wasn’t descriptive enough.

Sparkling ideas are the outcome of my reading habits.
What is your writing process like?
Shedding lights on reality.
Have you ever considered writing under a pseudonym, and why or why not?
No, I don’t favor writing under a pseudonym because Pen identities can make social events more difficult, particularly if you miss to announce yourself to anyone.
What do you think makes a good story?
I am an indie author of a nonfiction book; placing reality among the crowd matters significantly.

A “writer” writes for others while an “author” is self-oriented, and I believe that is the major difference highlighted so far.

What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?
I have perused a portion of different posts on social media talking about this subject, and I’m thankful that I was never a target of unethical marketing practices. There are many fake promoters everywhere who take a bunch of posts from authors who wish to sell their debut story and give them next to nothing in exchange.
