Interview With Winn Publications
Winn Publications: How did your journey as an author begin?
My journey began at 8 years old. I realized that writing was a passion of mine. I also realized that it was quite therapeutic. I write stories, music, poetry, and plays But it was not until 2015, that I begin publishing my writing. I started with blogs. Then I published my first book in 2018.
Winn Publications: Was it something you always wanted to pursue? Absolutely. As a child, I always said I wanted to be a writer and a singer. To my amazement, that desire has not gone away. 3.
Winn Publications:Who or what motivated you to write?
Often times, my life experiences alone motivated me to write. Hard times, trials, and tribulations. It was always an outlet for me. It was my authentic way of expressing myself.
Winn Publications: Have you published your writings into a book? If so, where can we find them?
Yes, my first published book was “I’ve Got Jewels! A Holistic Approach to Self-confidence“. You can get that on Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com.
I also have a book, called “Feel Good Poetry” being released soon, available on Amazon.com as well.
Winn Publications: How was the publishing process?
The process was a lot of work. But it was rewarding to work. When you are self-published, it’s a much more hands-on process. There are so much time and effort that goes into completing a book, let alone publishing one.
Winn Publications: Are you self-published? Yes.

Winn Publications: Have you written anything outside of fiction/nonfiction?
I have only published nonfiction. But I have some nonfiction writing coming in the future. I love the idea of the characters. And that’s a project I’ve always wanted to do.
