Q: What’s the story behind your work with ASJ? A: That’s a unique question. Chris had a newsletter that I submitted some poetry for long before there was an ASJ Publishing. Shortly after that, another friend was doing a fund raising poetry book for the Hatian earthquake victims called “Hearts For Haiti”. I submitted and was accepted. Shortly afterwards, ASJ was born and they turned my collection into a book. When I saw the contract I asked what it was for and Chris said we’ve decided to publish your book. My response was “What book?”. To which, he replied the poetry collection I had sent over. I had no idea it would ever get published as a stand alone collection, so technically, I’m an author by accident, so to speak.
