I am so thrilled to share my interview with the Award Winning Author of This is How We Grow. The following questions were asked:
Annmarie: Question 1. What do you fun?
Christina: Answer: I love to write, read, love outdoors activities and travel a lot with my family. I also loves music and currently working on a new song. I play the guitar and piano.
Annmarie: Question 2. Do you experience writers block?
Christina: Answer: Yes, I do experience writers block. For instance, while writing “This is How We Grow” this was a long process. I had to rewrite it and I was stuck for months. In addition, life got the best of me due to loss of a dear friend and son heading to college for the first time. I wrote the 3rd book within two months though I don’t recommend doing this.
Annmarie: Question 3. Where do you get your ideas?
Christina: Answer: Most of my ideas comes from personal experiences and I am always reading and sharing with others through my books. For instance, “Who Am I Without You?” was written to exam yourself and how to get through hard time.
Annmarie: Question 4. What’s the favorite part of this book?
Christina: Answer: My favorite part is the 2nd part of the book that talks about “Building Unwavering Self-Esteem, Moving On and Uncovering The Real You.
Annmarie: Question 5. Any advice to give aspiring writers?
Christina: Answer: I attend writing conferences which has helped me a lot. It’s hard to write a book when it is a personal story, but one advice I would like to tell you is that writing is a long process. For example, I started in 2008 and some of my writings comes from my journals. I also set a timer for 10 min after the kids are asleep and write. I also increase this to 20 minutes a night and I develop a writing process.
Annmarie: Question 6. Anything you would like to say to readers and fans?
Christina: Answer: I am truly grateful for everyone that reads and does the work in the books. I like to share what I learn and I am a real person who goes through stuff too. I am grateful to you can flourish and its a gradual process. Finally, know that “you are not alone.”
