Write Daily. It sounds cliché but you must write daily.

Some writers and authors have a knack for using language that can really move people. Some writers and authors have been able to influence millions with their words alone. What does it take to become an effective and successful author or writer?

In this interview series, called “5 Things You Need To Be A Successful Author or Writer” we are talking to successful authors and writers who can share lessons from their experience.

As part of this series I had the pleasure of interviewing C. Erskine Brown. As a child growing up in Norfolk, Virginia, C. Erskine Brown had a bitter disregard for reading. But now, reading and writing have become his passions. In fact, he sees good fiction as well-crafted word art peppered with specs of truth and fantasy. Today, Brown is a screenwriter and novelist. His debut novel, “A Cry Among Men” is a top seller and was a semifinalist in the 2010 Big Break Screenwriting Contest. When Brown isn’t working on his second novel, A Cloud Over Southampton, he is spending time with his wife and family.

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive in, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit
