T Wynn, an avid reader, currently lives in Georgia with her husband and children. As an author who currently has two published books under her belt, I'm pleased to have her stop by and chat her work and being an author.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I have always wanted to write a book, but in the beginning I was not sure of what I should write about. So, I finally decided to write about something that I knew about, which was marriage because in this day and time the divorce statics are so high, and I felt that I had great advice to give.
How did you come up with the title?
I had a different title for my book in the beginning, but when I was writing the chapter on finance, and I was discussing wedding expenses, I came up with the quote "make sure your love is bigger than your wedding!". Then I thought about it and decided that I should make that the title because it sounded really catchy, and it focused on the main foundation of what a relationship should have which is love.
Writing about love can be tough, what experiences did you draw from to write about it?
I drew from my own personal experience of being married for over 17 years, and from the love and respect that my husband and I have had for each other throughout all of those years. I know that no relationship is perfect and you will have ups and downs, but love can help you conquer most issues if it is true love. Which in my book I discuss what true love really is.
Is there a message in your book that you want people to take away?
I want people to know the difference between a temporary relationship and a lifetime relationship, especially if they are thinking about marriage, because all romances are not meant to be lifetime commitments.
What was the hardest part writing your book?
The hardest part was making sure that I expressed my views and advice without making my readers feel like I was preaching or making it seem as though my life and relationship is perfect. I just wanted to make sure that they knew the difference between a good relationship and a bad relationship.
You had recently released a second book, which was fiction, do you find yourself in the future wanting to explore other genres? If so, what genres do you see yourself writing?
I have thought about writing a horror story because I love reading those types of books, and you can just go in so many different directions with them.
Since you are an avid reader, what book are you currently reading?
"Every Sistah Wants It" is the book that I just finished reading. I am still trying to decided what I want to read next.
What authors have you be inspired by?
Kimberla Lawson Roby, Zane, Stephen King, E. Lynn Harris, Eric Jerome Dickey, Mary Higgins Clark, and there are a few more. As you can see I have a very diverse palate when it comes to what I read and who I am inspired by.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Write from your heart and don't worry about what people may say, because you will never make everyone happy, so just make sure that you are happy about what you write.
