Interview on Massive Black Hole with Andrya Bailey!
This was another interview for an exciting blog. In this interview, I explained more about my background, why self-publishing is the new frontier of the publishing industry, and my favorite quote by Terence (185 BC - 159 BC) - a man who was brought as a slave to ancient Rome from Africa. However, despite his time in bondage, Terence became one of the most celebrated playwrights of that era. He said, "I am human, therefore I consider nothing human alien to me."

Guest Post on IndieWritersReview Blog!
This was my second guest blog post on IndieWritersReview, a website spotlighting indie writers by my good friend Michell-Cornwell Jordan (no relation). My first post was back in 2014. In this post, I talk about how authors can make the choice to pursue any dream that they want when it comes to their work.
My favorite line in this post is: "As writers, we must be determined to accept the fact that we are the gatekeepers of our own happiness when it comes to our work and what we put out into the world."
