“As a single father, I made a huge decision to leave a good job during a terrible economy. I made my mind up that I would become obsessed with the pursuit of success with my writing career. So far, it has paid off. In these few months, I’ve made a name for myself and people KNOW who I am and how I do what I do, which is a blessing. One of the things I’m most proud of is how my children look at me now. I’m not depressed, or frustrated, because I’m doing what I’m passionate about.
I write constantly and I already have the titles and plots lined up for my next 26 novels. This is what I do, and I’m just trying to let the rest of the world know this. I’m just trying to become legendary in the game. I believe that a GOOD writer pulls you into their story. A GREAT writer makes the world around you fall away as you read. The LEGENDARY writers tell stories that become a part of you, and linger long after you’ve read the last line of the last chapter.
It was once said that, "the pen is mightier than the sword". I say to my fellow AUTHORS: Let's advance our craft until it's mightier than guns, grenades, bullets, and nuclear bombs. If not, then put your pen down and fall back. Those of us who are serious about this will run you over as if we were riding in tanks.”
