Can you tell us a little abut you?

I'm a 27 year old disabled Israelite from Cleveland Ohio. From birth to present I've dealt with a lot of trials and tribulations starting wit a brain tumor at 8months.The removal of the tumor, along with a piece of my brain, damaged some nerves. I then was diagnosed with semi-paralysis on my right side of my body. Despite my physical disability I was wrongly raised by an abusive, neglectful mother which suffers from mental illness that runs on here mom side off the family. On top of being beat I was sexually molested, dealt with death at the age of 8 forcing me to say goodbye to my granny and starved daily growing up in my mom house. Living at my mom house pushed me into depression, suicide 2x, being hospitalized three different times and being wrongly convicted of a crime I never committed.  It's not about what I went through it how I went through it and what I gotten out of it. I'm proud to say I've survived staying at my mother house and by the time I was 18 I moved out my mom house to a trap house without looking back. Through it all I maintain Honor and Merit roll and graduated June 6, 2010 ready for college.


What inspired you to write this book?

The life I was given encouraged me to tell my story if I want o be understood by those around me. However my mom actions alone inspired me to write my book. 


Are you planning on writing more? And if so when do you expect the next one to come out.

Yes, I plan on writing more books. My second book will be released Oct. 11, 2019. So far I've written four books and have three more to go.


 What do you do for fun?

I love to travel, hiking, dancing, music, swimming, movies, outings with friends and love ones. I cherish my alone time and enjoy nature and animals. 


What is one thing that you do while writing that people may find weird?

I mainly listen to J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, 2pac, Gucci Mane, Young Scooter and other west coast or trap music as I write my books. 


What is your favorite book to read?

I love all Triple Crown Books (urban legend) books.


You say that you are disabled, but what does that mean to you?


Being disabled is when you're limited to certain things or having a disadvantage in any area. That alone qualified me as a disabled person although my personal friend don't treat me like a disabled person. 


Some of us live with invisible disabilities. Do you think those with invisible disabilities are treated different then those with visible? Why or why not?

I believe if everyone disability was known to the public weather seen r unseen ill be treated differently due to lack of understanding. For we judge people by what the appear to e and not by their hearts. If we as people take the time out to understand people with disabilities they'll understand how we as disabled people would like to be treated as humans with emotions.


What would like people to learn from your story?

The purpose of my book is to first brag about God as we discover each blessing in every storm. I realized we must go through the storm in order  to grow. It's not about what we walk away from but what we walk away with for everything in life is either a blessing or lesson; you just have to b wise enough to know the difference between thee two. Our past my hurt but we can dwell and be stuck in the past or learn from it. By me using my inspirational story it shall motivate people off all ages  to never give up on their personal dreams and life goals regardless of what we went through and shall face, with God on our side we can conquer any and everything. We might bend but never break. After all when life gives you lemons you can only make a lemon detox water, get rid of the toxic in your body and move forward
