INTERVIEW | Michelle Robinson, author of Right Before My Eyes II

138Michelle, tell us about yourself.

I’ve been doing hair for almost 2 decades and have served as a therapist to my clients for years. The advice I give is pretty straight forward and Godly. I love when my clients tell me their lives have changed for the good when they take my advice.

I started writing poetry when I was in junior high school and have been writing ever since.

How do you find time to connect with God?

I connect with God when I first wake up. I pretty much pray all day long so I’m never disconnected from God.

Who are your favorite authors? Favorite books?

Eric jerome Dickey, Mary Morrison, and Terry McMillan.

rightbeforemyeyesiifrontcover_finalTell us about your journey to publication.

I had a good friend who assisted me with picking a publisher, editor & graphic designer. Then I used a photographer friend for my book covers & he picked some models for me. One model is actually a client. The journey to publication was kinda rough both times. My first editor couldn’t spell & my second editor casued me stress due to the critiquing process. I didn’t experience that on the first go around, so I had to learn & grow from it. I now have an appreication for criticism.

Tell us about your current book?

There’s more drama and celebrations as her other best friends Najah & Chelsea’s lives have changed too. Maybe for the better, maybe not.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I was in a short whirlwind relationship that had so much drama, 2 friends told me on the same day that I had to write a book about it. Even though that story plays a small part in the book, it served as my inspiration. With all the stories that I have stored in my memory, it all fell into place. I added drama to the stories from my clients, myself, friends and family. And that’s what makes my book a page turner!

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

Pray and let God lead you to what you want.
We all want love, but we have to know the difference between being love & being used or being a side piece.
Learn to love people who are different than you.
You can still smile while in a storm.

What’s next for you?
