“Getting recognized as a writer is hard enough but getting recognized as a children’s writer is even harder.” – Sharon C. Willams

You are a chemist and a writer; citizen of the two different worlds – fantasy and the real. How do you manage?


What a great question. So far I have not been using my background into my writings yet when it comes to chemistry. But the two do blend and has worked for me. Where I have used it is in how I approach any book. I am a firm believer in research and facts when it comes to any book let alone a children’s book. This is our chance to share and teach young minds. As a chemist I learned how to be methodical in how I did the experiments, how the labs were run and how I made the solutions for the various classes. That takes time, focus and a head to the details so you don’t get it wrong and end up hurting yourself.


That is how I do my research for any book. I make sure or do my best to fact check at least two times, if not three, each fact I have placed in my books even my children series. I look at it like an experiment what is my objective, what is my theory and how do I go about doing it to get the final conclusion. It is not chemistry that people might think but my frame of mind and how I was taught and have worked helps me I believe a better writer.


You are better known as the author of JASPER THE AMAZON BIRD. 3. What do you think easier? Writing for the adult readers or child readers?

Yes, that is a good point. Even though I have a comedy and an anthology of short stories that are 18+ people refer to me as Jasper’s mom and the series I have written for children. I think I could write a trilogy drama and people would still think of me as the writer of the Jasper series. I do like that. It shows people are paying attention and connect me in one portion of my writing career. I like that. It is nice to be known for something that has definitely been positive for me.

Ron Lewis’ education and career are firmly rooted in science. But a curse that dates back to the days of slavery has plagued him since childhood.
Born in a black ghetto in Chicago in the 1960s, Ron’s pragmatism is at odds with his experiences; whether it’s the trials of an interracial relationship or the supernatural forces that he can’t seem to avoid.

Just when he thinks he’s finally found peace of mind, Ron’s life is upended by tragedy. He gets the opportunity to use science to try to communicate with the dead, and to finally confront the evil that has plagued him and his family for generations.

That’s when all hell breaks loose.

I finally reached Belfast on the 4th of August and I have been walking around, visiting places and meeting friends.
On this video, I'm going toThe Giant's Ring which is a 4000 years old Celtic structure including a Giant circle and a tomb entrance. Then I decided to go to Sir Thomas and lady Dixon's park which was about an hour walk away. So you'll also see pictures along the Lagan river.

This time, we took the train back to Normandie to a little village called Giverny. This is the place where Monet created his nympheas pond and did a lot of his paintings.
To get there, you have to take the train to Vernon and then take a bus or in our case the Giverny town train to go to the village. It's also not too far if you want to walk.
The place was really beautiful. The garden doesn't look like it did on Monet's time since now they have planted flowers to have a bloom all year long but the pond style looks the same. There are a lot of Nympheas mixed with the reflection of the clouds on the water.
I recently read a book called "Nympheas Noirs" by Michel Bussi which contains a description of the village and Monet's house and garden since it is located in Giverny. It was a really good read and I highly recommend it. In English, it is called "Black Water Lilies".

Today I have for you a video of Honfleur in 2 parts.

First there is a little part from when I went there with my friends so it comes after the Trouville video.
And second is the second half of the conférence weekend day trip. So it come after yesterday's video at Étretat.

It shouldn't be too confusing and anyway, it's the same place.
