What group did you hang out with in high school?
I took a GED out of high school. When I decided to take my GED, I had only accumulated 9th grade credit hours due to truancy. I used to skip classes with my best friend Lisa. Each morning we would make an alcoholic drink of Southern Comfort with Canada Dry ginger ale in a large olive green Tupperware cup. So the first thing, I would do when my parents left for work, I would get up and make our favorite alcoholic drink and place it in the freezer so that it could be cold and slushy. We would drink this while walking to high school.
Once we arrived we would go to our locker, talk to a few friends, before heading out the back door to return either one of our homes, catch the city busy down town Detroit, or walk to the mall. Lisa moved away to Georgia and I never found a friend that could replace her.
I started skipping classes by myself and catching the Joy Rd bus to downtown Detroit alone to go the Main Detroit Library on Woodward Avenue. Oh my god! I loved this library so much because of the medieval paintings on the ceiling on the top floor and the old musty smell of the library books. I still love this scent today. I skipped school to go to the library to read and read and read. It was my home. I still have an affinity for libraries. When I travel, I try to find old libraries so I can find some obscure book and read and sniff the pages.
What are you passionate about these days?
I collect Crystal Skulls and Alien Star Being Gemstones. I love them so much. Each one has a different energy. Right now, as I am typing --I am wearing my Peitersite Alien Gemstone with labradorite eyes in between my breasts in the center of my bra. They are approximately 4 inches tall, 4 inches long, and 3 inches wide. Peitersite is a very powerful gemstone for harnessing your energy to complete tasks. It will will help you discipline yourself to tackle large and small projects. The first time I wore this gemstone, I almost fainted because the vibration was so strong.
I had a past life regression reading where I was placed under hypnosis. It was an amazing experience. I was a white male name Peabo, I had a wife her name was Estelle, and 4 boys. I was a sergeant in the army. My current boyfriend was my wife in that lifetime. I was a horrible husband and father because I was always worried about money.
I plan to do this once a year or so. I was loopy for a couple of days. I learned a lot about myself. I
I bought past life regression oracle cards and I plan to do some past life readings on my YouTube channel.
If you had to do your journey to getting published all over again, what would you do differently?
I would never submit my book to a beta reader or an online book review service who say they are “brutally honest.” I can’t believe there are people who take so much pride in tarnishing other people’s hard work. I can think of so many writers who are extremely wealthy and successful—but I don’t personally like their writing style or body of work. If you are a writer there is an audience waiting to appreciate your work. Your job is not to change your voice—your job is to find your audience.
I completely understand that all people are not going to like my book. I am perfectly okay with this. But check this—I am not going to pay you to trash my book. You can buy my book and write whatever you want. This is an even exchange of energy.
Ebook or print? And why?
Print. I am a dinosaur, I love the way a book feels in my hand. I like underlining my favorite quotes. My Harry Potter and Fifty shades of Gray Series are sacred to me. I like seeing them on the wooden book shelve in my room. I probably won’t read them completely again—but they are not only energetically a part of my consciousness, they are physically apart of my feng shui that expresses to the exterior world who I am.
When I visit someone’s home the first thing I do is take note of any books or magazines lying around or the lack there of—what people consume into their consciousness tells you more about them than anything they could ever tell you.
I read ebooks as well but most for information—never pleasure reading. Ebooks are good non-fiction books because once I learn the information I have no further interest in the book. I don’t have to worry about finding a place to get rid of it.
