When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I first considered myself a writer back in the 4th grade going on to the 5th grade. The teacher gave us this assignment where we could write any story we wanted and would actually publish it into a book format. It was my first official Street Racing Club story. That’s when I decided from there I wanted to make a continuation to the story, and here I am today. 

How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?

I think I’ve evolved creatively by incorporating some of my real life in my book, and putting a little spin on it of course. It brings more depth to the story and then hopefully some of your audience can relate to it as well. On top of that, instead of using actual brands, I’d make up my own. I prefer to create my own world than ride the wave of using real life brands.

How did you decide to publish your books?

I published my books independently on Amazon.

Can you share with readers a little bit of your book?

Street Racing Club: Volume 2 is a follow up to the first installment I published back in 2019. It picks up with my main character, Jaylyn, finding out that his long-term enemy is returning from a major setback and surely stronger than ever. He would then have to put his differences aside with another rival and they would have to work together to stop this guy. It’s a lot of revenge, betrayal, and deceit going on in this story. 

Who is your favorite character in your book and why?

One of my favorite characters is Shawn. He’s misunderstood by his peers but as you read along, I guess you could say he’s a little more ‘human’ than everyone thought.

What was the hardest thing about writing your book?

The hardest thing about writing this book was coming up with the concept and how the story was going to flow but that was very early in its development stages. 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

Everything. Once I had the concept and theme of the book down, there was no stopping me.  

What is your next project?

I’m actually working on projects as of now. My next official book will be a graphic novel and spin off to my latest book. An audiobook for my novel is also in the works. Be on the lookout for both of those!

What is one great lesson you have learned as a writer?

These is some words of wisdom my grandfather: If you go to sleep and wake up thinking about writing, you’re officially a writer. 

Tell us something unique about you.

Not only am I an author, but am also an artist. I did the cover art on both of my books as well. Another fun fact is that I am also a part-time college student.
