    What made you become a writer? Where did you find the inspiration?

    I wanted to become a writer in school for a long time. It wasn't until 5th grade that I decided that, that was what I wanted to be some day. My inspiration was the challenge of creating a whole new world completely created from my Imagination and aweing my readers. So, Now I ask Where did find your inspiration.

    My desire to write came from being an avid reader. I have loved to read since I was a child. When I became a teenager I fantasized about my own stories and that's where my inspiration began.

    I've always been a storyteller, even before I could read or even put together any story that would make sense. My dad would let me tell him stories until I fell asleep, rather than read to me like a normal parent would. Eventually, I was introduced to the world of reading and became so hooked I decided to study literature in college, just because it's my passion. I've always wanted to be a writer. I guess my dad could be my inspiration because of all those nighttime storytelling sessions. Plus, he bought my my first book that I still carry around today.

    I wanted to be a writer when I completed a course in a College Level English Class called Introduction to Rhetoric. I had written a paper on childhood neglect and it just started from there. Writing became my therapy, thus my inspiration came from that class.

    I've always written, but decided to become a DJ when I was in my 20's because I love music and, at the time, talked a lot.  The broadcasting school I went to was alerted of a copywriting position with a local production house in South Florida.  They recommended me because they liked the spots I wrote.  I landed the job and started a career as a TV commercial copywriter.  I left the industry because I made a lot of money and put it up my nose.  I fell back on my accounting knowledge for a good twenty years and have been drug-free since 1987.  A year ago I started writing again.  In September I quit my job to write full time and have published a poetry book since.  Now I write for a living!

      Isaac, right now it's only on lulu.com.  It's called Hearts and Rainbows - A Poetic Look at Life.  It'll be on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in about a month or so.  I'd be honored by your purchase.
