What inspires you to write?
Nature’s colors and sounds, the smell and taste of your food, the history of the countries and places you’ve visited, the stories of your friends and people you’ve met, the buildings you see while strolling, and the pets you caress is my daily source of inspiration!
What is your next project?
I’m working on a project that will incorporate both art and poetry.
Who are some of your favorite authors that you feel were influential in your work?
Every author has something unique to offer and will magnificently inspire you.
What do you like to read in your free time?
I prefer poetry and short-stories books. At the moment, I’m reading Poesie by Cesare Pavese.
Are you a full-time or part-time writer and how does that affect your writing?
I’m a part-time writer. I usually write when I have spare time and daydream about travel, people I’ve met, and memories of odors or vivid pictures that occur to me at the moment.
What are some day jobs you have held?
I have a background in the digital marketing field. I’m a firm believer in digitization, experienced with digital marketing strategies and campaigns for various industries, including content marketing, advertising, web analytics, market research, Google ads, and e-commerce for B2B and B2C.
What made you decide to sit down and actually start writing this book?
It took me two years since I was preparing it in addition to my regular work. I wasn’t completely focused on the book. I decided to sit down and write it because I wanted my book to serve people as a reminder to use poetry to uplift our souls and heal our minds. I want them to discover everyday inspiration and let their light shine bright to inspire and empower others to do the same.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
My advice is to trust in themselves and their skill, and if they want to publish a book, they should do it anyway!
