I like writing music and that all carries over to writing books. I feel at times my songs are really audio short stories. I was influenced by one writer the most in my earlier days of writing and that was Donald Goins. I was inspired by his action to tell the oppressed stories of my black ghetto. I am also a fan of people like Langston Hugues, however I feel that my work is most infused with filmmakers also. People like Stephen King, Steven Spielberg, John Singleton and M. Knight Shalyman influence seems to over shadow my earlier influences. As I mature in my work, I find myself desiring to tell stories that becomes myths. I want to tell stories that generations would come to love. That's why I tell people don't be fooled by any of my covers because it's difficult to show all the details of a story with one photograph.
