Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into writing?
I travel and teach. I don’t consider myself a writer, I just put into words what interests me.
What inspired you to write your book?
Just everything going on. I’m thankful for the kind reviews.
What theme or message do you hope readers will take away from your book?
That it will promote civic action and that they know a peaceful revolution is possible.
What drew you into this particular genre?
I always was interested in social philosophy.
What social media site has been the most helpful in developing your readership?
Probably Facebook. Reviewers will usually include your book in a post if they like it, or write something nice about it.
What advice would you give to aspiring or just starting authors out there?
If I were an artist I would challenge myself to write the hardest style or the most difficult book. I would see what I can do with my art.
What does the future hold in store for you? Any new books/projects on the horizon?
No, I’m just promoting this book for now. I don’t see a new book in the near future. Maybe there will be another one on the horizon, but I have other interests. I like to travel, and I like teaching.
