Author Interview

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a Husband of ten years, Father, Mentor and Owner of Never Again Ministries which promote Marriage Enhancement and Holistic Relationships. My Wife and I host the Doctor of Love Show on Three different stations.


Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

In my latest book WISDOM:  Preventing Problems before They Happen the overall message is to help people cut back on making bad decisions. Don’t get me wrong, we all make mistakes but if there is someone who can mentor us from making bad decisions, apply the wisdom that others give to you.


What is the most challenging part of being an indie author?

What is the most rewarding part of being an indie author? The most challenging part of being an indie author is getting others to see the vision that is birthed within you. When you don’t have others backing you or you don’t have the big name to match, it takes more time for others to buy into what you are writing.
What made you decide to become an author?

I like to talk a lot! I figured if I can put all my thoughts and ideas on paper it will become more valuable to those who read my books.
When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published?

I started writing my first book If You Apply These Principles in 2008. Then I went on to get published by the company Lulu.

Please tell us the titles of your current book (s): And give a brief synopsis 

-If You Apply These Principles: God Is More Practical Than We Think (2008) I used a lot of Bible Scripture from the book of Proverbs on the practicality of God and how God require work to be done on our behalf to be successful.

-It’s The Woman You Gave Me (2009) how we can get past blaming others for past hurts and disappointments from parents, friends, spouses, and situations. Notice how the blame game started with Adam and Eve in the garden. Since the beginning of time it’s been an issue even until today.

-3 Are Even Better (2010) eight week workbook for married couples and benefits of God being the head of your marriage. The title came from the book of Ecclesiates 4:12 we discuss topics from money, sex, how to affair proof your marriage to blended families

-WISDOM: Preventing Problems before they happen (2012) Refer back to question number one for synopsis

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors?

Don’t quit when things get tough and get connected to others who have the same goals as you. Networking with other authors is a powerful tool. Also support other authors and understand it’s not always about you and your work.


Tell us about your journey to publication.

For me it was tough because I didn’t know any other published authors when I wrote my first book. I just did the best I could and let the cards fall. But as time went on publishing became easier.

 What next for you?

We are hosting our first “3 are even better” Marriage Retreat in Payson, Arizona this fall and the release of my new book WISDOM: Preventing problems before they happen

 For Empowered to Propser

Why does the fire die down in our marriages?

I think we get used to our Spouse after so many years of Marriage. That’s why date nights (or mornings) is healthy for a Marriage. Always take time to reinvent yourself to keep the Marriage fresh.

• When did you begin to realize you liked to write?

I NEVER had a desire to write. However, on February 14, 2001, I was called to write. Since my passion is in helping people, I am driven to write.
• Tell us about your book, Marriage 101.

I share a story many know all too well. Whether in their own lives or in those of close family and friends. It’s a story about a marriage in trouble. I take you on my spiritual journey—of how my husband and I went from being engaged and enthusiastic to being frustrated and separated. I share the real issues that plague most marriages and the many challenges we faced. I share the disappointment I felt, looking at what was supposed to be “happily ever after.” But I also share how Lewis and I were able to rebuild our relationship and the lessons learned along the way as I implemented eight biblical truths from searching the Scriptures.

• Is this book for singles too?

Absolutely, this book is very personal. It allows the reader, whether married or single, to examine themselves so they can change and be all that God has called them to be.

• What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading Marriage 101?

I hope they will learn God’s purpose for marriage and that they discover the hidden truth.
• Where can readers order your book online?

Amazon.com, mosaicbooks.com, or my website at www.marriage101.us

• Do you offer your services as a speaker for workshops, conferences, or retreats? If so, what are the titles of some of your popular topics?

• Marriage 101 (teaching the eight biblical principles and discussing topics that plague most relationships: Finance, Communication, Parenting, Sex & Intimacy)

• Doing the Right Thang

Tell us about some activities you enjoy doing during your free time.

Reading , shopping, and spending time with my family.

Do you like to cook? If so, what are your favorite dishes to cook (or eat)?

No, this was one of the biggest challenges we had to overcome in our marriage. However, I love Indian food.

Do you have a favorite bible verse and or quote you wish to share?

Isaiah 55:8-11 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts…”

I have realized, as a Christian, that God expects me (us) to do things that really don’t make sense. I must say that it is not my favorite scripture but it helps me to stay focus – to do the right thing.

What one piece of advice did someone give that still sticks with you to this day?

Tyler Perry, “It doesn’t matter if a million people tell you what you can’t do, or if ten million tell you no. If you get one yes from God that’s all you need.” And he has stated numerous times to own, own, own.

What brings you the most joy? Spending time with Lewis and the girls
