Today I am interviewing Rodney D. Robertson: Author, Life Coach, Pastor, and Motivational Speaker. He has released his fifth book Speak To It and is here to tell us about it, as well as his writing journey.
Please give him a "Kickin' It With KeKe" welcome!!!! *Applause*
First, I would like to thank you for joining us today Rodney. It is always a pleasure featuring you on my blog. I want to say how extremely proud I am of you. We have known each other for a long time, growing up and attending school together. You are still the same kindhearted, straight forward and perfect gentleman you were then, today. I admired you then and admire you still. It’s refreshing to see people we know, follow their dreams and watch them manifest. You will always have my love and support, Bro. *I call him Bro because he was and still is the older brother I never had growing up. He was all up in my business y'all. LOL*
Let’s get started, shall we.
Tell us about Rodney Robertson the Author.
How long have you been writing?
I have been writing for 11 years.
Who are your target audience?
My target audience starts 17 and up. I'm writing to those who want to live life on purpose and inspire others.
What inspired your latest book?
My latest book Speak to It was inspired by a family medical crisis in 2013 where I and my family had to depend on God for a turnaround in my sister's health.
What do you want readers to take from your book?
The take home message I want the reader to get is that their words have power and presence. They can change the outcome of their lives and circumstances with a faith confession.
Do you apply the lessons you are writing about in your book to your daily life? How so?
Yes, I apply the lessons of this book on a daily basis. Namely, by speaking positive faith confessions over my life, family, church, & business.
When writing, what motivates you? What inspires your writing?
My writing inspiration is two-fold. God and life experiences motivate me to write. I aim to write books that can inspire and help others live a better life.
I got a chance to read Speak To It and I must say, it is a great read! The message of maintaining unwavering faith and having the desires of the heart by claiming whatever it may be in the name of Jesus was profound. It is a blessing and I recommend it to anyone seeking encouragement in their life. The words we speak can bring victory or destruction; it is all about what we speak into the atmosphere. *I left my review…I know how important it is for people like us. (#AuthorLife)*
Where can readers purchase your book?
Speak to It can be purchased at Amazon (Kindle) and www.rodneyrobertson.org.
Although I have books that are inspired by true events, I love the genre of suspense and always infuse that aspect into my books. How do you know what to write about in your books?
I write about the subjects that mean a lot to me or that I'm passionate about. I believe if the subject is from the heart; it will reach the heart of the reader.
What’s next for you as an author?
What's next? Currently, I'm working on a new relationship book "5 Things A Man Wants." It should be out by February 2015.
Tell us something about you that others may not know.
My favorite color is blue. I love being at home and I like country music. (shocking huh...LOL)
I pray you continued success Rodney. Keep inspiring and motivating others. God’s smile looks good on you!
