“Every life decision, matters more than we think.”
Posted by Literary Titan
Ardent Grandeur follows an aspiring music artist through triumph and tragedy on his way to the top. What was the inspiration for the setup to your riveting story?
The inspiration for the book, Ardent Grandeur came from my first self-help book, “Cheaters Never Win: How to Stop Cheating in Any Relationship or Never Start,” which emphasizes the importance of figuring out your “why?” in effort to change behavior. With the fiction novel, Ardent Grandeur, I wanted to “paint the picture” of how our decisions impact those around us, and how we can cope and overcome life challenges in a better way. I want people to see how their decisions can impact others. Sometimes, the offender doesn’t always get to see how their behaviors and decisions impact others, so I give a voice to those characters in the book that allows them to tell their stories by having deep, thought-provokng conversations with their offenders. Just like the book states, “Every life decision, matters more than we think.”
Bryce is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?
The driving ideals behind Bryce’s character development was to show different stages of his life and show people that despite your upbringing or what you have done in your past, people can change, if he/she wants to change and works toward making the necessary changes in their life. Even trash is recyclable. No matter how many times people travel down the wrong path in life, they can still change their direction (route recalculate like a GPS) to put themselves on the right path in life.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
Some of the important themes that were important for me to explore in the book are: unconditional love, self-worth, self-efficacy, effective communication, self-love, critical thinking, behaviors, and decision making. Our behaviors can be a result from our life experiences (good or bad) and the decisions that we make in life are so important because they can impact us, as well as those around us, in a negative or positive way. Yet, even when we make poor decisions, we don’t have to be held captive to those decisions. We can get to the root cause of our behaviors, acknowledge them, and put in the work to do and be better.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I am currently working on the sequel to Ardent Grandeur to continue the story and will hopefully release it by the end of 2021.
