At Thanksgiving dinner this question was asked.
What and who inspires you to write?
Besides writing children books, I also write drama stories. My inspiration comes from everyday life events. When I was young I never had a library of books, but what I did have is the world around me. I grew up seeing the struggles of people around that had financial hardships, homeless people having nowhere to sleep because of a fire that destroyed their home. Walking down the street and seeing kids clothed in old torn garments because their family can’t afford new clothes, mothers crying because they can’t afford to feed their kids. I saw my own mother struggle through life just to give me the world.
The world is my muse. I put myself in the perspective of those who have day to day struggles. I write for them, I want them to know that life is filled with hopes and achievements. This is my inspiration to write.
You may not be a writer, but what inspires you to do what you do?
