An Interview with the author . . .

When did you decide to take that step that made you a published author?


The best negative words spoken to me in my life thus far inspired my decision to live my dream by becoming a published author.

What has been your greatest challenge as a writer? Have you been able to overcome it?

For me, the hardest part of writing is the pressure I place upon myself to produce a valuable product. I strive to deliver measurable, relatable material to a nonexclusive demographic audience.  This challenge is not something you completely oppress; rather you develop a structured process to aid you in achieving.

What inspired the idea behind your book?

Halo-Orangees’ employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team (Halo-Orangees: Helping Advocate Longevity of Organizations by Obtaining Objectives through Redefining Above-Board New Generational Guidelines for Employer Employee Standards) book was inspired, developed, and birthed from my reaction to a manager with whom I, B. L. Brown, had the pleasure—that is, in making me stronger—of working for. My executive director had perfected the art of insulting staff members on a daily basis. I could only surmise that this leader saw the entire group of employees as confined to a small shoe box. In a one-on-one meeting with my executive director, he made the statement that another employee, who held the same title, was better than I was. In response, I informed him that this employee was not better than I, nor was I better than she. I also asked him to explain the basis for his statement. He stumbled, stuttered, and finally replied that this employee was better than I, because she held two master’s degrees. From that one statement, I instantly realized my true purpose in life. On that day, reckoning my experience with a newfound belief, the foundation of Halo-Orangees emerged. Halo-Orangees employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team Introduction is entitled, “Don’t Allow Anyone to Confine You to a Box, Disabling Your Growth”. You are the only one who defines you, so don’t ever allow anyone to tell you who you are, or that you are not good enough (Excerpt~ B.L. Brown).

Tell us about your favorite character in this book!

There are several characters such as, for Suzy T. Harassed and Joanna M. Miserable in Halo-Orangees’ employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team book. However, Employee Strong is absolutely hands down my favorite character in the book.

What message do you hope readers take away from the book?

Don't Allow Anyone to Confine You to a Box, Disabling Your Growth (Excerpt~ B.L. Brown).  “Your life purpose is to take the totality of your negative experiences, roll them up into one, and use them positively to lay the foundation for your destiny” Excerpt~ B.L. Brown).
