Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Destiny Hope Faith Divine?
Deaubrey Devine: I’ve always desired to have a little girl named Destiny Hope Faith with my last name Devine. I have always had a special affection for those wordsÂ because they all are very powerful. Alone, they are powerful. Combined, they are life-giving. As an author, the intrigue of the names sparked me to create a novel using characters with the names I adore.
JP: What sets Destiny Hope Faith Divine apart from other novels in its genre?
DD: Destiny Hope Faith Divine is set apart from other novels in its genre because it has it all. It is a smoothÂ read that allows readers to become one with the characters and scenes in the book. Everyone can relate toÂ the relationships plus the religious and sexual plots that entertains on this emotional roller coaster.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that lead to Destiny Hope Faith Divine getting out to the public?
DD: As an author, the real work begins when the promoting of the book starts. The keys to getting Destiny Hope Faith Divine onto the shelves and into hands of my readers is sheer drive and determination. I have been out and about in the public attending conferences and networking events and interviews. I have also visited book festivals and book club meetings. Some of my ventures also include hiring promotional marketing professionals along with text messaging alerts and blogs.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Destiny Hope Faith Divine?
DD: As a newÂ author, my writing process is still being defined. I do have the attitude of staying focused until completion. My daily motto is “Faith without works is dead”. I push myself and avoid procrastination at all cost.Â Completing this novel was like completing a life long dream. From start to finish, I am going to say roughly around 7months.
JP: What’s next for Deaubrey Devine?
DD: My journey continues with my next novel My Purpose. Allow me to give you a little insight into my next book: It is the story of a young kid growing up through the mist of trials and tribulations. This book is a good read for parents, students, coaches, athletes, and young adults. All will be touched and inspired by this novel that’s due to be released in March.
Hello! My name is Deaubrey Devine (pronounced Dee-au-bray…De-vine). I am from Lakeland, FL, and I’m the author of Destiny Hope Faith Divine.Â I graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando where I received my bachelor’s degree, majoring in Health with two minors in Criminal Justice and Education.Â My multiple areas of study have allowed me to teach and reach lives in different ways.
My talent for writing was exposed and connected when I decided to pick up a pen to pursue a career as a novelist after my professional football career ended in 2007.Â I asked God to use me as an open vessel and allow my passion for writing to encourage and inspire others.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family when I’m not writing, reading, plotting or planning. I also enjoy exploring new adventures, a nice cookout, times of fellowship, meeting other writers and readers in the publishing and book industry.
Other things I like to do in my spare time include: playing chess, poker, traveling, basketball, a good ole Spades game, movies, bowling, skating, Scrabble, attending conferences and learning new things. I just enjoy living life abundantly while looking for peace, joy and happiness. That’s me, all me, all the time, I am…
