What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Crossroad: The Long Way Home?

This is a book about choices. It is our choices more than anything else that determines our destiny. Talent plays a part and so does luck & opportunity but I believe the primary factor is our choices.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Crossroad: The Long Way Home, what would they be?

My main character is good natured but flawed in many aspects; “Aint No Stoppin Us Now” by McFadden and Whitehead. or “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Historical fiction is probably my favorite but reading is like music to me… I like a variety of genres but my taste in that moment depends on my mood.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

What a great question – I enjoyed writing each chapter for different reasons. I think my LEAST favorite scene was the chapter detailing the character’s military journey. Since I was in the military so long, it had a “been there, done that” feel to it so it was not as much of a stretch to write

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

I have a number actually, many are reflected or symbolized by my tattoos. One is “Simba si baada sungura kidogo” which is Swahili for “Lions don’t chase bunny rabbits”; it is a reminder to focus on what’s important. My most recent tattoo was Psalm 118:24 – a reminder to rejoice and hunt for the goodness in every day.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

That we’re always one decision away from a totally different life!
