Have you ever had Writers Block?
Yes I have, as nearly all writers have. In my recent book A Quick Style Guide for Writing for the Web and English Usage, I list ten ways to overcome "writers block. The most import is to keep writing no matter what. Free writing is my favorite. Its a technique where you write quickly and let your thoughts flow, without concern for grammar punctuation or form.
What topics are of interest to you?
I love to travel, teach, and write. Ive taught English in several countries in Asia. Heres a description of entering a country where I eventually taught English at a University.:
I traveled by train towards Poipet, from Bangkok, the city just inside the Cambodian border. Sitting next to me in the open windowed train were several orange saronged monks. I had met monks in Bangkok who were from California, my home state. In fact, each time Id been near Buddhist Monks, Id felt a sense of peace and calm and this time was no exception. One of the men spoke a little English. We had a brief conversation then we were quiet for a time. When a vendor came through the car selling water, the monk Id spoken to bought several bottles—he gave me one and I thanked him graciously.
The next morning I took a motor taxi to the Thai-Cambodian border, where I purchase a twenty-five dollar business visa for forty dollars. I passed through immigration and walked the two hundred meters into Cambodia.
I immediately felt different from anywhere I had ever been. I had entered another time, an enchanted land. It was as if I had been transported into a far and distant past. The ground was muddy and unpaved and there were outdoor stalls where people sold fruit, vegetables, cooked food, household items, gifts, and crafts. It seemed like there were hundreds of horse drawn and man powered carts. Children were begging, vendors were grabbing at my shirt asking me to buy from them or use their transportation.
What inspires you as a writer?
I am inspired with well written passages, poems, and stories. Heres an example:
Mortenson grinned at the girls pluck. The first graduate of his first schools first class had obviously learned the lesson hed hoped all of his female students would absorb eventually not to take a backseat to men.
Three Cups of Tea
Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin

No, however, my best seller, African Safari Bootcamp for Women mentioned below has. In Kenya: The Promised Land it was written:
Ken Wasil spent three months traveling through the magical land while researching this story about "A group of women swtanded in the African bush without food, water or weapons". He visited the small towns and villages, and got to know and made friends with the local people. The countryside is magnficent, the climate is pleasant, and the people are truly the most friendly in the world.
