Welcome, Natashia. Please share a little bit about your current release.
Biblical Proportions is a story about twin brothers who are music executives in their family business, the dynamics of this book was inspired by the story of Esau and Jacob from the Bible. James and Edward are polar opposites, but they find themselves in the battle of a lifetime. These two gentlemen where fighting the consequences of some bad choices and the only way out was to strengthen their faith and surrender to the will of the Lord. They found their strength, peace, and their purpose along the way.

What inspired you to write this book?
This idea of writing the book Biblical Proportions was dropped in my spirit as I was reading the Bible and recognized that the situations we are dealing with today are already written. At that moment I recognized that stories needed to be told to: one to bring awareness to how relatable the Bible is; two show the readers how important developing a relationship with the Lord is; and three share an overall message. 


Excerpt from Biblical Proportions:
Cynthia could not resist that man of hers. So, she grabbed his hands and stood in front of him. He pulled her close, embraced her, and placed his forehead upon hers. He began to pray over him and his wife. 
“Dear Lord, hear my pleas. I lift my heart to you today. I ask that you give Cynthia and me strength to make the right decisions. I ask that you show me how to love her through the pain that I have inflicted upon her. I ask that you open her heart to receive and forgive. I ask that you heal the deep wounds that have been created because of poor choices. I decree and declare that our marriage will be made whole again. I ask these things in Jesus name. Amen!” Edward prayed.
Cynthia was full of emotions as Edward gently lifted her face and kissed her quivering lips. The peck quickly turned into something that neither of them thought it would be. 

Life Lesson Two: Ignoring an issue will not make it disappear. You must become grounded in the word so that you will have the strength to endure the storm.

What exciting story are you working on next?
My next book is titled – There Was Power in the Pain, From the Pit to the Palace which is the story about my life.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I first considered myself a writer when I held a copy on my first book in my hands. It was a very humbling and surreal moment.

Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I do not write full-time. I am a songwriter, music producer, and a speaker. I also have a background in IT Project Management and I work temporary assignments from time to time.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
My interesting writing quirk would be that I must be in my bed and listening to music. I don’t want anyone around me. Just me, my laptop, and my music – in the zone

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
As a child, I wanted to be a lawyer (well what others wanted me to be). I spent a lot of time alone growing up which increased my creativity. I loved to draw and build things. I also found a love for writing and music.

Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
One final thought/statement, I believe that if you change your mind, you can change your life. If you are ready to do something different and change your life, join the Renew Your Mind Challenge Facebook group. Thank you. Peace and blessings.
