Did you face any challenges when writing your book? How did you overcome them?

Feb 17, 9:58PM EST0

from the start i didn't know where to begin. and after i found out a little bit i learn by searching through the web and i found out not all publisher are the same and they don't take your work and you spend money to do your own editing something i found out after 6 years looking for a publisher it was hard but in the end. i went a different route. i self-published my book. when the light changed me. thank you for asking AMA

Feb 18, 5:04AM EST0

Have you always believed in spirits?

Feb 16, 5:26PM EST0

i always believed in angels and in jesus christ if that what you mean so yes i did but i always heart of ghost stories but i never thought i be the one seen them. thank you for your question AMA

Feb 17, 2:13AM EST0

Do you have any religious beliefs, how does it affect your work as a medium?

Feb 14, 1:14AM EST0

great question i am catholic my mom raise us very religious now fast forward to 2000 few my family members began changing religion my aunts change to Baptist then my other aunt turn mormon so some of us stayed catholic so when i went through the process of my mediumship i had to keep it to my self a secret because they didn't believe anything and i understood that my mom didn't believe me when i began telling her  what was happening to me until one day she sat me down and told me she believe me i cried so much because i was by my self going through something that i didn't know what was happening to me. but my religion was more stronger then is ever been.  that never changed. thank you for asking if you have more question AMA 

Feb 14, 3:28AM EST0

Are you self-published or did you go with a publication company?

Feb 13, 3:56PM EST0

yes i am self- published the reason i went that way i could not find any publisher that i could tell that like my book it was hard looking for a publisher and it was costing me a arm and leg. sending out every other day so this was was more easy step. so if you thinking about writing do your homework and good luck god bless on your journey if you want to ask me more question AMA

Feb 13, 4:36PM EST0

i am self-published i looked for a publisher but in the end of the day it took to much money sending it making sure it would get there buying ink and so forth and it took me ten years. so in the end i decided to do self  published i even paid for editor thank you for asking. AMA

Feb 17, 11:21PM EST0

Did you proofread and edit your book yourself or did you hire someone to do it?

Feb 13, 1:41PM EST0

Feb 13, 2:41PM EST0

What was your life like before that incident happened? How has it changed since then?

Feb 12, 3:59PM EST0

i had a normal life i guess i work for 10 years in a flea market. i help family and friend when they needed a ride to go somewhere. otherwise my life was normal that i thought but i learn later that some of my dreams was not normal but for me at the time it was just crazy dreams but now that i know the truth it was not crazy dreams after all. it now that i have this gift how i call it. it change me for the better because before i love helping people now i know i can heal them when i know for a fact they are hurting inside. and they person that lost a parent of a niece or nephew how bad it hurt it take a long time to go on with out them. i never understood it until my mom dead 3 years ago it leave you with a big hole in your heart so i realize how happy people feel when i give them message of they relative that pass away. it did change me alot for the better. thank you for the question if you want me to answer any more question AMA

Feb 13, 2:54PM EST0

How long did it take you to write the book?

Feb 12, 11:36AM EST0

let me tell you this if you don't know where to begin and you don't know a publisher or editor then it will take alot longer let me tell you that it didn't know anything when i began and i thought looking for a publisher they would get me a editor i was wrong very wrong because not all publisher want what you write every publisher is different so you start from scratch when i found out i was the one that had to look for an editor I was surprised that it cost alot more than i thought alot cost over one thousand dollars i surely didn't know what was i was heading too. to make the story short i finish writing around a year in a half but to publish it. it took me 10 years so do your homework and look around if that what you want. now that i know a little better i am working on 2 more books right now. thank you for your question. AMA

Feb 13, 3:45PM EST0

Do you find that spirits are asking you for help?

Feb 12, 10:35AM EST0

no that a good question. I was once had a lady that was coming over one day to get read but the night before i heard a men say she throw me out 3 time i was shock why is he telling me this i was new so i was scared to ask. so when the next day came and the lady came over a few second before i open the door i heard it again. so when she sat down i ask her who you did you throw out of your house she laugh and said my husband. spirit come anytime but one time they came to  let me know everything will be alright. and my grandmother came to me to let me know my mom will be ok. because my mom was sick i thought they was just letting me know she be fine but little did i know and didn't understand was they came to get me ready for something i didn't know what about to happy and i didn't get by them telling she be ok was she will die 3 month later. that really took me off course. i was mad with everything. because what i understood she be ok i didn't understand that she be ok in the other side heaven. i am still learning having this gift became hard and because you are a medium you see things you don't want to know but you still know it. so yes spirit come to you but to help you not them. thank you for your question AMA

Feb 13, 3:54PM EST0

Are you able to read the future as well?

Feb 12, 12:16AM EST0

hell yea it hard i have a book coming out in a few months about predictions. i had to do it to many things keep coming out what i said so it was best for me to do it. sometimes been a medium is not easy you know things about family members that you wish you can stop it but again they don't saw how or when. thank you for the question AMA

Feb 13, 3:57PM EST0

Have you always wanted to be an author or is it something new after coming in contact with the other world?

Feb 11, 4:59PM EST0

great question no what i wanted real bad was becoming a business owner all my life i loved business but 2000 my life change big time after the spirit world contacted me. so when 2007 came and again my life took a different direction that when i began to hear my spirit guides and when i started to write everything they told me is was for my self in a few pages i wrote.  I remember writing a book i still didn't understand the predictions until i wanted some answers my self when the medium i went to told me.  there is a story to be told that when the Aha moment hit me i wrote a book that what they were telling me so that when i began to write my first book. and now i am working on my 2 and 3 book so now i like been an author it is fun telling people my story if it help someone in the world with their own spritiual struggle i be very happy. thank you for your question AMA

Feb 13, 4:03PM EST0

Do you ever have moments when you wish that you don't have the ability to contact spirits? Or do you wholeheartedly embrace it at all times?

Feb 11, 4:39PM EST0

yes the moment i thought that the spirit world lied to me telling me my mom will be ok even my grandmother came to me to say your mom be fine. to find out that she be ok in the spirit world i thought they betrayed me. so i wanted to stop reading and i hated the gift but i guess i was hurting inside i have not gotten over the hurt see my mom dead 3 years ago. to i still hurting but still working with the spirit world because i know alot of people hurt too for their family members.  i guess i fill good helping them out. i love what i do really i do thank you for your question. AMA

Feb 13, 4:07PM EST0

Do you ever get writer's block? How do you deal with it?

Feb 11, 12:33PM EST0

oh yes in the beginning when i started to write i didn't know what i was doing but a friend told me stop writing for a little while it will come back to you so that what i did. i hope i answer your question AMA 

Feb 13, 4:09PM EST0

What is your background, what were you doing before getting into this line of work?

Feb 11, 8:23AM EST0

i was a regular person helping my family with picking up their kids or taking a friend to the store and working at a flea market for 10 years before that i was in school taking business courses. before that i was in high school. and it was not by choice that i got in this line of work if that what you mean. it took me by surprise i didn't know i had this gift trust me had to learn alot since this happen to me.

Feb 13, 4:12PM EST0

Why do you think spirits choose you in particular?

Feb 11, 8:16AM EST0

ha ha ha that a good question i did ask my self that question a few time but i didn't ask spirit world why they choose me i was afraid of the answer so i have not ask.. ha ha beside i learn through research that i don't my family members like  my great great grand mother great great great great grandmother from my mom side and i just found out from one of my mom half brother from my mom father side grandparent had the gift also so it jump generations to me that. what i think happen no one will understand it if happen to them so they choose me because i guess they saw i could handle it. that what i think happen. so i hope i answer your question you can AMA

Feb 13, 4:17PM EST0

Do you have other hobbies involving the spiritual and the occult, like tarot card reading or palmistry for example?

Feb 11, 6:10AM EST0

my hobby was working at the flea market when the spiritual world came knocking at my door. i don't play with any occult i don't have any tarot card and i don't know how to read your palm i treat this like a job i respect the dead i don't knock on their door they knock on mine door when i need to help someone that need some answers or healing message from a dead relative. i don't play with fire that is not me thank you for your question god bless you any more question AMA 

Feb 13, 4:21PM EST0

What advice would you have for anyone who has just met with a spirit for the first time?

Feb 11, 6:07AM EST0

it is hard work once you find out you got a gift is a scary sometimes because you not the one looking for them they look for you to help them with family members that still here that need healing. to treat the spirituality like a regular job you had before you became a medium or a psychic don't play with anything you don't know because you can get burn. or get into alot of trouble. if you don't know how to go about it meet up with groups call metaphysical that help each other when you don't know how things work. they are very nice group support each other when you don't have family member that don't have the gift and they can't help you or  don't want to back your up or understand. this is the reason i wrote my first book to help those like me that didn't have anyone to turn to until i found the metaphysical group. thank you for your question god bless if you have more question AMA

Feb 13, 4:29PM EST0
Is there any particular situation or time of the day when you are more open to spirits
Feb 11, 4:37AM EST0

no not really when the spirit world is busy so i know that something is coming up but other wise they make sure you know that they are with you 24/7. they help me when they see i am heading for trouble but still get into the trouble because i still have to learn from it. beside that their favorite word is god want you to have a normal life... mmmm is this normal could it fool me ha ha any way i hope i answer your question. if you have any more question AMA
