Question1- Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it?
 I attended a seminar at the Chicago State University and learned about human trafficking and how this epidemic is corrupting our society.  The lack of knowledge and danger to victims inspire me to write something about this abusive behavior and to skillfully place my thoughts in writing in an entertaining and exciting read.
Question2- What were some of the most significant challenges you faced writing it?
Time to be honest. Time is a luxury I seldom have. I have to sacrifice many things I like doing to find the time to dedicate to my books.  So time is one of the leading challenges. Other is knowledge in many cases I don’t know squat about what I going to write, and yet research helps me prepare to attain the right information that will help me with writing my book.
Question3- Do you plan subsequent books?
Yes, indeed. In every book, I write I leave clues that could tie into a sequel or additional books.  I call it job security.
Question4- When and why did you begin writing?
After completing my master’s degree. After passing the English literature class, I was able to feel confident enough to start seating down and writing a story. Although I have been writing since I was twelve years old is not until now that I have decided to publish my work.
Question5- What is your greatest strength as an author?
A good memory. I can see what is going on in my mind, I know the plot the characters and the scene as it was right in front of me and this helps just grab it and put it in words. So my imagination and memory are my best allies.
Question6- Did writing this book teach you anything?
Yes, that I am not perfect and like the wine, I got better with time.
