  1. Words have power. When did you realize you could use the power of words in your own book to tell people your opinion, feelings, ideas or fantasy?

    1. Hi Annika, thank you for your lovely comment. I don’t seem myself as anything other than ordinary so I am very flattered.

  2. Excellent interview, Robbie. I especially like when you say that you hope people will continue to learn from the past. Sometimes people say to me why do you keep remembering your past, but I truly think there are many lessons to learn from it. Your words, therefore, hit home with me. Wishing you continued success with your writing!
