I was able to ask Dominique a few questions. Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to chat with me Dominique. It is a pleasure to have you here at my blog today.
BK: What inspired you to pen your first title?
DW: I wanted to inspire others. I felt a calling that my writings should inspire others. With that, I wrote and published my first book “Inspire Me Young” and dedicated it to someone I lost a few years before.
BK: How long have you been writing?
DW: Wow, I’ve been writing since I was a young girl but seriously writing for about seven years now.
BK: What was the hardest part about writing this particular novel?
DW: Writing The Tension Reliever Volume was difficult because I was revealing a side of me I never allowed others to truly see. I felt for so many years that I had to censor ME and when I decided to put out a second volume to the Tension Reliever, I felt this was the time to bring the other me out. I’d been through a lot in 2010 and it came pouring out into my writings.
BK: Have any dreams been realized as a result of your writing?
DW: Yes, that somehow some way, I inspire others. It could be my drive to be the best, my inspiration for helping others or simply my love for writing. I find that in everything I do, I’m inspiring someone in some area of their life and it’s a dream for me to be able to inspire people that way.
BK: Where do you hope to take your writing in the future?
DW: -I’d love to be a best seller, travel around the world to meet various people and continue to inspire people through my writings.
BK: What advice do you have for writer's just starting out?
DW: Trust yourself, believe in you and your work, be your number one cheerleader and never ever give up!!!
BK: Anything else you would like to share with us today?......
DW: Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about me and thanks for hosting me on this tour!
