CD: What made you decide to write this book?
Christina: Overcoming the troubles of my childhood and adolescents made me write this book. I wanted to show the greatness in a child and how it should be nurtured not demolished by an adult!
CD: How long did it take you to write it, from idea to completed project?
Christina: It took me about 3 years to put the idea together. The reason being is because I just came into being informed about the history of the people I used in it.
CD: So it took a lot of research?
Christina: Yes, I read the books about them (people in the book), talked to the authors, visited museums and other historical land marks. I prayed and felt I talked to them spiritually.
CD: What was the most challenging thing about writing it?
Christina: Making sure it focused on shaming the attacker (bully) instead of shaming the victim of bullying! I wanted to show how you can overcome with words and knowledge, but also be able to physically protect yourself from injustice.
CD: How about the most rewarding part?
Christina: The most rewarding part was bringing it to life and completing it. I sent it out to people before I published it and got great reviews. I hope to one day do some readings and signings at various Barnes and Noble stores and maybe even make it into a picture book, cartoon, TV series, etc!!!
CD: If there was one thing you would hope your readers take away for reading it, what would that be?
Christina: Never be ashamed about who you are! GOD doesn’t make mistakes. We all contribute to the beauty of the world. We are all super heroes. Everyone – please keep inspiring inspiration.
