What inspired you on this book?

Take Me With You Volume 2 was actually inspired by my relationships with others. Over the past 10 years, I’ve really embraced the fact that we are dealing with character types more so than people. Have you ever met someone who reminds you of someone you knew your whole life, just by there actions? That’s what inspired me to write this book.

Why did you want to become a writer? 

I’ve always wanted to be a writer. In middle school, I would enter all the writing and drawing contest to display my interest. I won a few of them and received awards of participation for others, but the passion was always there.

What was the hardest part of creating this book? 

The hardest part of writing this book was actually finding the time that I could sit down and just write. Currently, my day revolves around finishing up my Ph.D and running multiple businesses. I did find the time to finish up the book but it usually came at the price of sleep.

What do you hope people gain from reading it?

After reading Take Me With You Volume 2, I want the readers to leave with a sense of discernment. This book is packed with biblical scriptures, wisdom and lessons. I want people to gain a better understanding of who’s in their life. The wrong friendships could really hurt your future.

When you were a kid, what were your favorite books? 

Great question. When I was growing up my favorite books were the The Trumpet of the Swan, James and the Giant Peach and The Scarlet Letter. These 3 books will always be on my favorites list.

What is your advice to people who are not excited about reading? 

Usually those that don’t like to read a whole lot are more visual people, which is fine. What I would tell them is, just imagine a movie that only you could see and you make up the faces of the characters and you determine the imagery of the story. Reading is the only pastime that gives you that experience.

Why should we buy your book?

Everyone reading this interview should buy my books because I put real life aspects in my books. I guarantee with all my books you will learn and adjust from my writings. I only deal with facts and personal experiences of others and myself. When you buy any one of my books you are buying information and not opinion.
