INTERVIEW:

Do you listen to music while writing? If so, what do you listen to? 

I find instrumental music very helpful to keep me flowing. Anything with lyrics would distract me. Music also makes the sometimes tedious act of writing less so, 
TV 

Do you have any suggestions for upcoming writers? 

Write about what you love, or what you have learned to help others. Write using your gifts or talent to encourage others or to make life better for them. 

What is it you like to do when you are not reading/writing? 

I enjoy painting, gardening. I find I get totally "lost in doing something artistic or simple. When writing, there are so many things to think about: sentence structure, spelling word usage, and getting your idea across so others can understand 

 As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

Lalways wanted to be a teacher and make learning more fun and interesting. I had a -little blackboard and made my younger siblings sit there and listen to me teach. 


Meet the Author:
A former educator and owner/operator of learning centers, Pam Johnson was diagnosed ADHD and had most of the same problems in school that her students were having. She had learned over the years how to compensate for her different learning style and lack of organization, and knew what would work for her students .These compensation techniques were incorporated into her Centers. Her students went from D’s and F’s to A’s and B’s within 4-6 weeks. These compensation techniques were incorporated successfully into her Centers using her “Study Quick" System. Mrs. Johnson also started the first ADHD Support Group for Parents in Hixson, Tennessee to help parents learn to help their children quickly learn routines and structure at home without having to constantly remind them. Every parent who used these techniques and was consistent had immediate success!iveaway

THE INTERVIEW:

  1. How did your father being an alcoholic affect your life?

I always told my mother it didn’t affect me.  But that wasn’t true.  Denying it wasn’t dealing with the issue.

  1. Some people say that alcoholism is a sickness. If you believe that to be true, please explain why you feel it is a sickness?

It’s a habit that was formed and it’s a disease and a stronghold.

  1. Statistics say that children of alcoholics often become alcoholics. How did you avoid becoming an alcoholic since you saw it displayed openly?

Because I lived it and I saw the destruction it can do and I didn’t want that to happen to my life.

  1. You suffered physical, emotional and sexual abuse. How long did it take you to get to where you could talk about it, and what would you say to others in the same situation to help them move forward?

It took a very long time. I had blocked it out my memory until I gave my life to the Lord, and he healed me. The trauma gave me low self-esteem, and God had to deal with that too.

The Interview:

Can you please tell us about the book?
This book was written to educate people on the importance of participating in the voting process. We can no longer sit on the sidelines criticizing when we chose not to participate in the process. Having the wrong person sitting in the White House has long reaching effects on the direction of the country and how we are viewed by the outside world. For the first time in our lifetime we are not looked on favorably as the leader of the world. 

Who or what is the inspiration of the book?
The current failure of this Trump administration and the lack of participation in the downstream election at the state and local level.

What cause are you most passionate about?
Police reform. Primarily because of the number of unarmed black and brown people who are killed needlessly. 

Do you have a ritual when finishing a project?
No, not particularly.

Who has influenced you in your writing career?
Dr. Roosevelt Thomas, Daniel Coyle, Alex Haley and Vicky Stringer. 

What are your long term goals?
Total retirement and travelling once COVID-19 is over




Meet the Author:
The author is writing his fourth novel ,The Demolition of Democracy, to give substance to what he sees as a threat to the stability of our country by the current Trump administration.
