Interview with the Inspirational Christina Lockett

Interview with
Minister and Educator

Christina Lockett

author of:

Love Lost, My Story
A Message of Hope

 

 

INTERVIEW:

You wear so many important hats as a mother of teenage sons, an ordained minister, choir director and Science teacher. When did you realize that being an author was also within you?

A few years back before I experienced the second divorce I wanted to share my experiences. Looking back I am glad I waited because I did not expect my life to turn upside down. It is still difficult to embrace author as a title because I really just want others who are going through what I went through not to feel hopeless and give up. The best way to share my story and message of hope was to put it in a book and now I am a author.

 

Your book “Love Lost, My Story” is a message of hope. Who is it this message of hope for?

The message of hope is for women and men. People who have experienced failed relationships, disappointments, and unexpected life challenges. The message of hope is for anyone who had to start all over again after a trial or heartbreaking situation.

Chritina-Lockett-book

Was it a difficult decision to share such personal experiences, despite the comfort and inspiration this would bring to others?

Yes it was difficult because I had to be totally transparent if I really wanted someone to be helped. It was also difficult because I knew some of my family and friends did not know all of the details surrounding my divorces. Many have read the book and shared that they were shocked mostly because I always tried to stay positive and they had no idea how much I was going through.

 

Your Christian faith appears to be at the core of strength and positivity. What advice do you have for those who are struggling spiritually?

I advise those who are struggling spiritually not to be mad at God for their current challenges. Take comfort in your spirituality. Look beyond yourself and know that when the storm is over you will be able to help another person with similar challenges.

 

As you prepared this book as an inspirational resource for others, did you experience any additional catharsis or personal healing?

Yes, I shed a few tears while writing and thinking back but I was proud of myself. I was glad about how far I have come spiritually and mentally. I realized how powerful forgiveness was as well.

 

When people experience repeat disappointments in their life it is difficult to maintain a positive outlook. What advice do you have for those who find having a hopeful outlook to be very difficult?

The main thing is not to beat yourself up and blame yourself. Take a self-evaluation and make necessary changes. Surround yourself with people who will be honest with you and most all positive and encouraging. It is difficult some times to remain positive but if you have positive people around you it will make a difference.

 

Many people who have experienced life challenges like you may also aspire to writing and sharing their ordeals and revelations to help others. What advice would you have for those who have a message but are apprehensive about the publishing business?

If you are truly truthful about the situation it will be a little easier to share. You have to ask yourself the hard questions. Will sharing my personal business keep a person from committing suicide because they feel hopeless? Do I expect others to have a life changing moment because I shared my personal business? If your answer is yes to the hard questions it is worth sharing and you cannot hold back. Go for it!

 

Now that you have experienced the power of written words to minister to those in need, do you have any additional plans to continue your inspirational writing?

Yes, I want to continue writing so I guess I have to embrace my new title..Author.

In the Blink of an Eye: September 11th Stories

In the Blink of an Eye:
September 11th Stories

By Brittany Tenpenny

Four planes. Three thousand victims. Two towers. One morning. September 11th 2001: the day that changed America forever.

Imagine waking up and getting ready for yet another day of work. You put on your best outfit, grab a cup of coffee and swing by the local bakery for a last minute breakfast. When you finally arrive at work, you settle into your desk and prepare for the day ahead. Then, barely an hour into your shift, the unthinkable happens: your office goes up in flames.

This was reality for the people who died on that fateful Tuesday morning. Some were in the towers, others in the Pentagon and the rest thirty thousand feet in the sky and digging through the smoldering rubble below. America watched in horror as the world was engulfed in flames. Our country crumbled to the ground. But from the ashes rose a new nation, one united in grief, despair and a longing for justice.

“In the Blink of an Eye: September 11th Stories” immortalizes that day in vivid detail. The short story “And Then He Smiled,” tell the heart wrenching tale of a mother’s grief over losing her child with a supernatural twist and the poem “One Dark September Morning,” champions hope even in the darkest of times. Filled with moments of joy and despair, of faith and disbelief, of life and death, Brittany Tenpenny’s “In the Blink of an Eye: September 11th Stories,” is a literary anthology destined to touch the heart and inspire the soul.

For the first month of the book’s release (Sept 1-Sept 30), all proceeds will be donated to the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York City.

Interview with Inspirational Author: Glory S. Davis

Interview with Glory S. Davis

Author of:

Sometimes I Look at Sinners:
A Collection of Short Stories

 

 

Available on Amazon

 

 

Glory you have had an amazing career of over 43 years as an educator. During any of that time did you consider any writing projects?

 

Yes, off course. I was an English and speech teacher in secondary school. I wrote many skits, plays, and speeches for students. But, I was too busy to do anything professional.

 

When did you realize that there was a writer in you yearning to express herself?

 

Near the end of my career, I attended the South Mississippi Writing Project Summer Institute at the University of Southern Mississippi. Because I was complimented and encouraged, I caught the bug there and decided that whenever I got the chance, I would try my hand at it. After retiring, I was so bored that I started writing meditations. From there, I wrote eight stories which I published.

Glory Davis - Book
Today we will be discussing your book:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.
Is this your first published book?

Yes, it is.

What was your inspiration to write this book?

Many people look at America and worry about the economy; I, however, looked at America and worried about man’s separation for God and his propensity to sin. I thought that I would try to do something to put America back on the course toward being the religious country that it was in the beginning… for which it was founded.

 

Tell us what readers can expect to find in:
Sometimes I Look at Sinners: A Collection of Short Stories.

 

My readers can expect to fine eight delightful stories with religious themes. They can also expect to learn or be reminded of religious truths about honesty, dying, lost hope, deception, fornication, and many other forms of sin.

 

What do you hope will be the impact on readers after they read your short stories?

I hope that they will find the lessons presented in a funny and entertaining way. However, I want the readers to take the stories seriously, to recognize and to internalize each of the themes. It is my wish that my stories win souls for Christ.

 

Do you have your next writing project in the works?
If so, can you give us any hints of what comes next?

 

I have completed a book of meditations, Outside the Gates of Heaven, which I plan to publish by the end of this year. I have also completed a self-help book, Escape for Mothers of Prisoners. I plan to publish it soon after my second book. After those books are published, I am going to write sequels to several of my stories.

 

What advice would you give to other writers who are in a sense “waiting to retire” to pursue their writing passions?

 

I would advise them to read, read, read and read some more. It is also helpful to keep a journal, not only a reflective one, but one in which they record descriptions of people, places, and interesting conversations. The journal will be very helpful, especially when writing fiction. Lastly, I would advise them to learn the business of publishing and of promoting books.

Interview with

Actor, Producer & Author of:

Go For It

Matthew Martino

 

You are the author of the inspirational book: Go For It. But before we discuss your book, I want to ask about the trail that led you to where you are today. You were born in Zimbabwe and now live in the UK. Can you share with us how and why you migrated?

Yes I was born in Harare, Zimbabwe and in November 2005 moved to UK with my parents and sisters. I was initially not to optimistic about leaving my primary school friends and moving far away but I got over it.

Another fascinating thing about you is that you are not only an author but you are also an actor and film producer. How did you get involved in acting and movie production?

Yes I’ve had my moments in front and behind the camera. I first got involved in acting doing some extra and walk on work back in 2011. I then did a bit of acting before moving onto the producing side of things. I thought I could make more of an impact in producing and I could essentially be able to help others a lot more.

What movies have you appeared in or worked on?

I’ve appeared in Green Street 3: Never Back Down and various short films. Ive produced Lets Fly Documentary, Ortega and His Enemies, Tales of the Supernatural & Oliver Rocket.

What motivated you to write this book?

I was motivated to write Go For It due to the mistakes and errors I made when I was starting out with my very first business venture. I learnt a lot from the experience and I wanted to help others in my shoe’s to not make the same mistake. I thought my book would be quite realistic in terms of actually helping aspiring entrepreneurs.

Who do you draw YOUR inspiration from?

I draw my inspiration from Alan Sugar, I like how ruthless he is as a businessman and he has a good set of hobbies which include flying and cycling. I also hold interests in flying so this is something that impresses me.

Tell us about your book and its message?
How are you applying these ideas into your own life?

Go For It’s main message is for business people to do as much research as possible before entering into business to ensure that they don’t make any mistakes and they have more chance of success. I have actually learned more about business through writing the book and I’ve bettered my communication with my staff for instance.

Who do you think will benefit most from this book? Who are you speaking to?

I think anyone interested in starting their own business will benefit, I was particularly talking to young people who wouldn’t know some of the basics and just so they can know what to be aware of.

How do you think your message will influence change in readers?
What do you expect readers to take away from your book?

I think my message will enable the readers to make more informed choices about their businesses, In particular planning and system implementing. I cover budgeting and business management briefly in the book which talks about how to manage staff effectively.

What’s next for you? What are you working on?
Do you have any movie projects in progress right now?

What’s next for me is retirement I think ha-ha, I mean I’m hoping to produce a few more films, I’ve now moved into the more sales, distribution side of films and also executive producing so it’s all new. I’m currently planning a few feature films to be shot later this year and next year. I’m also looking at expanding my aviation business Lets Fly Academy to have a retail arm.

 

About the Book:

GO FOR IT will guide you through some tough decisions you have to make as an entrepreneur and take you on a journey through the highs and lows of a being your own boss. “So, keep walking. Enjoy. Experience the joy of doing something meaningful. Oh, and by the way, it’s now time to GO FOR IT and do what you love the most!
