Meet the Author

Hi Sherwin, how are you? 

I’m doing well. Thanks for having me. 

Could you tell us about your background and biography as an author? 

For starters, I was raised in Savannah, Ga by a single mom. My background consists of Christianity and spirituality, which eventually led me to teaching and leading the congregation.

In which book genres do you mainly write in?  

As of now, I mainly write in the religion/spirituality genre but I’m beginning to explore urban fantasy. 

…My previous projects are 3D and STATIC. Both books dive deep into my spiritual journey of hearing the voice of God and recognizing my true identity and power in Christ. My most proud achievement is landing a spot-on Barnes and Noble bookshelf amongst great authors.” — Sherwin Washington

Do you have a favorite among them? 

I’m leaning more towards the fictional and fantasy side of the world. 

Could you share some details about your previous works and highlight a notable achievement you’re proud of? 

Yes, my previous projects are 3D and STATIC. Both books dive deep into my spiritual journey of hearing the voice of God and recognizing my true identity and power in Christ. My most proud achievement is landing a spot-on Barnes and Noble bookshelf amongst great authors.

Writing Journey

You’re an author now, but how did it begin? 

My journey began inside the church. As I started to speak and teach more, my gift became obvious to me. I was hard on myself because I wanted to speak every word I jotted down on paper, but I could never get all of my thoughts out when the time presented itself. So, what better way to deliver a message now than through a book?

What were your motivations to start writing? 

What motivated me the most was to share my experiences with the world. 

Who were the authors that influenced you early on in your writing career? 

Dr. Myles Munroe and Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Can you recall your earliest memory related to working on your first draft? 

Yes, I can remember me typing and printing out my first draft and hanging it on my wall. I wanted to see how my thoughts looked on paper for the first time.

Inspiration and Creative Process

Where do you typically find inspiration for your books? 

Majority of the time I find inspiration from the intersections of Bible stories and life’s problems.

We’re curious about your creative process. Do you follow a specific method or go with the flow? 

I found that outlining my book from beginning to end helps me write easier and faster.

Writing Routine and Habits

Could you describe your daily or weekly writing routine? 

My weekly routine consists of journaling my thoughts first if I have a new book idea.

Do you have any special rituals to do while in the writing process? 

Nothing other than outlining.

Challenges and Overcoming Obstacles

What are some obstacles you’ve encountered during your writing journey? 

My main obstacle was finding a consistent time and schedule to write outside of taking care of my wife and children.

How did you overcome them? 

I figured early mornings or late nights is best for me to write, so I forced myself to get in that groove of things.

Can you talk to us about STATIC? What’s the story behind it? 

STATIC is about hearing and recognizing the voice of God. It’s a-lot of voices in the land but which one is God? It’s my personal story about me recognizing the calling and voice of God. In the book, I teach and explain the different ways he may be speaking to you and it all references callings in the Bible. 

Are there any upcoming projects you’re excited about? 

Yes, I’m actually working on a screenplay and I’m very excited about breaking into the film industry as well.

Final Thoughts and Closing Remarks

Do you have any additional advice you would like to share with fellow authors who may be reading this? 

My only advice is to stay true to yourself and your voice.

Finally, what message would you like to convey to your readers? 

To my readers, I want you to remember how powerful words are. Words penetrate the heart and your whole life flows from the conditions of your heart. My goal, as your writer, is to build a personal relationship between us through the words I record. I hope you find healing, encouragement and inspiration to help you get through this journey we call life.
