SCBookGal and Friends Meets Ms. LaToya Martin
Writing in a quiet environment is not for me, I can only write in a noisy space, The television has to be on but no music. The end of my poems is always written first, followed by the beginning of the poem, then the title. You have beautiful artwork in your novel. Where did the inspiration for those images come from? The images in my poetry book were created by my publisher. Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones? I do read my reviews. I love hearing the reader's positive and uplifting words about my poetry. With negative reviews, I would look for constructive criticism, I would look for areas where I may need to improve. If you could co-write with any author, who would it be? And what would be the genre? I would love to co-write with authors in the poetry and paranormal genre. Are you currently working on anything? Tell us a little about it. I am currently working on my second poetry book and a children's book. What would you like to say to your readers? I want to share my poems with readers' who are struggling or feeling down because I believe in the healing power of words. It's always my desire to convey positive messages to my readers. My voice is a non-judgmental light for anyone experiencing the darkness of loss, depression, and pain. I want people to be able to view my work and say, "She understands how I feel!"
