• What inspired you to write this book?
I loved writing. People told me I was a good storytelling and knows how to put it together. My professor in college told me I have a gift of storytelling. During my free time, I sat on my kitchen at night, while my family were sleeping, I need some quiet time. The inspiration writing this book was when my ex-boyfriend sending me hurtful email letters over the years with poor grammar and discrimination about myself. His letters made me creating the story and naming it Sandbox.
• How long did it take to write it?
It took me two years to write Sandbox. I had to create and put ideas for the story. I usually write at night to keep my mind in focus to complete 5-8 pages a night.
• How did you come up with the title?
Sandbox was a main name for the character. Baru Masort and the woman he was involved in the past were in the box full of sand and looking all at one another. I was a little off on the title and I didn't want to have it change. Baru has his ups and downs and was very confused of moving forward and trapped in the sandbox.
• Why did you choose this cover?
I was working with one of CreateSpace members with my cover. He saw the title and read the bio of the book. The gentleman created the cover, send me a photo, and I fell in love with it. He did a great job with my cover book.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
My hardest part writing this book was putting it together to make it a story for each chapter. I wanted to make at least 10 pages for each chapter and make the characters communicate more in the story. I could not focus during the day in my writing because I work in freelance production and spending time with my family.
• Did you do research for your book?
I did research on paramedic facilities in training schools, knowing how to create a digital video games online (Grand Theft Auto), viewing parts/streets of France, New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Jamaica Island. I took photos to view the images to bring in the story in the book.
• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I learned a lot creating a book. I worked all night trying to complete this book and feel challenging and made my goal. I did so much traveling from one place to another for research, conversations, interviewing, and street attractions. I attended writing workshops and group events to asked advice to write a book. I'm hoping to do more traveling and working on my second book.
• What do you want to say to your readers?
If you love hot drama, sex, and romance, Sandbox is the book for you to read.
