How would you describe your writing style?

I would describe my writing style as a combination of “inspirational” and “Motivational” ingredients cooking in the same pot.

Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what kind?

No, I prefer silence.

Tell us anything about you as a writer that you think might be interesting or unusual.

I always write three manuscripts at the same time, that way I never get writers block.

What advice do you have for aspiring writers?

Just as in everything in life, the more you do it the better you get so write as much as you can and then some more. When writing, never worry about making mistakes or worry about how different parts will sound, you could always go back and correct it. If the thoughts are flowing, flow with it, never break you train of thought by trying to correct while writing

Writers are often encouraged to write what they know. Have you found that to be the case with your writing?

Yes, you could never attempt to write what you don’t know. This will generate problems for you in the long run.

About the Book

Carl Mathis wasn’t prepared for the devastation the loss of his wife would bring to his life. He soon found himself grieving, struggling to make ends meet, and trying to raise his sons, who were also dealing with personal turmoil from the loss of their mother. After months of waiting for someone to rescue him, Carl had to face the inevitable truth–no one was coming. He realized that if he wanted out of the mess his life was becoming, he was going to have to do it himself.

Join new author Carl Mathis in this motivational story about one man’s struggle to put his life back together. Life Is What You Make It will teach you how to overcome any crippling situation you find yourself in and stimulate personal and spiritual growth by accepting the situation, taking responsibility, conditioning your mind, choosing to make right decisions, building a team, believing, and defining the new normal.
