Jacqueline P. Walker interview
A little introduction:
When did your love of books begin?
I have always enjoyed reading. I remember as a child being excited to go to the "bookmobile" (before we had access to libraries) to pick out books.
When did you start to have the wish to become an author?
I can't say that I had a wish to become an author. But as I wrote poems and stories, friends and family encouraged me to share them. When I recognized that they encouraged or uplifted others, I decided to publish.
How have you found the process for becoming an author?
It is exciting but challenging. As I write, I wonder if the readers will enjoy it or get the message/theme that I desperately want to get across. Then there is the business of marketing my work which is intense but worth it to share my work.
What would you say to those wanting to become an author?
My advice is to stick to your truth and write the story within your heart and spirit. Every writer should acknowledge beforehand that not everyone will like your piece. Please keep open to accepting constructive criticism, but in the end, please write what is in your heart and spirit.
Tell us about your book/books:
What do you love about the writing/reading community?
If you could say anything to your readers what would it be?
I appreciate readers for investing their resources in my work and taking the time to read my books and share my message with others. Our readers are our support system, and I am thankful for everyone who chose to read my titles.
