“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.
