Throughout Mr. Sokhna life, he searched for a purpose. At the age of eighteen, he went through some tough times. His girlfriend left him, his finances were not where they needed to be, his family was struggling to make ends meet, he lost his Hope scholarship, and was desperately trying to find out what was his purpose here on earth. The depression within him started to build and lead to an attempt of suicide.
With the love and support of his family and close friends, he slowly climbed back on his feet, but there was still one remaining problem. He still didn’t know what his purpose was, until he had a vision.
Something within him told him to write down his story. There was resistance, but he followed the hunch. Five thousand words turn into ten thousand. Then ten turned into twenty thousand. Then all of a sudden, twenty thousand words turned into over forty thousand words. He recognized that he found his true passion. It was something that will challenge him. It was something he was yearning for all his life. It was something he could call “his own” and that something was writing.
Mr. Sokhna purpose is to ignite the creativity within people and help them realize that life is much more than what meets the eye. He wants his readers to know that all that we ever done and all we will ever do in this world is just the tip of this iceberg of what could have been done in this life.
The Worst Dilemma Series is one of the three ways he likes to channel his talent to the world. Being able to create erotic content that makes people blush is not only pleasing to him, but it makes him more humble to evolve the craft of literature. Mr. Sokhna will continue to strive to bring more enticing content through The Worst Dilemma Series. A series that will shed light on some of the toughest situations people go through in life, with the added bonus of erotic content.
Just what is love? Is it just a word people use for personal gain? Is it a verb that needs creativity expression in order to understand its full meaning? Or, is it just looking in the mirror?
For Chantrelle Hayfield, love is simplicity. But, she lives in Atlanta, a complex city full of surprises. Like her chiseled, tall, and chocolate next door neighbor, Rasheed Goodmen, who could be a new love interest? But, when her best friend, Ashley Leslie, comes out about her true feelings, will Chantrelle be able to handle the convoluted feelings of others even if that means losing her simplicity?
Chantrelle’s other friends Ariel Samson and Alexis Smith could be able to guide her? But, Ariel needs to learn to be a little selfish and Alexis has to stop scheming to get by. The underworld of Atlanta will test each of these women. Because behind the spark of every dilemma, is lies and deception. Who will be able to see clearly in order to avoid tragedy?
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I had attempted suicide at the age of eighteen. When I recovered from my mental depression, I used writing as my recovery agent. While crafting The Worst Dilemma, I want to someone express the troubles young people in my generation go through, with the added bonus of erotic content. I used my personal experience as fuel to create something compelling that will forever change my life. The Worst Dilemma is just the start of my writing career.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
If I have enough time in my schedule, I can crank out a draft in two weeks. But, the first part of The Worst Dilemma took me two years to finish. I now have more time and money to finish the other two parts in two to three months.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
The beginning stages, or I like to say ‘The creation process’. I love having an idea about something, but you have to treat creation like a newborn baby. You have to take care of it. Show it how to walk, talk, and eventually, it will mature on its own.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
The editing process. After I written my first draft, looking over it and seeing the amount of errors I have just reminds me how much work writing is. The misspelled words, misuse of grammar, and horrible structure of the format can really get on my nerves. But, this is a process where you can reevaluate a story and really get things to look the way you want. So, I try my best not to complain about it, but I really don’t like this process.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson. This man went from being poor to landing on the Forbes 100 list. Not only that, he’s brave enough to explore new avenues and add life to his career. His achievements make me realize that you can branch out of your passion to find new ventures.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Hmm…Munster cheese from Whole Foods. It had to be about 5 weeks old and it was sitting in the back of the fridge. The mold was evident and the smell was very acrid. Disgusting. I cleaned the whole fridge out that day.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
They can expect new material from me coming very soon.
February 2014, The Worst Dilemma Part 2 will be released.
April/May 2014, The Worst Dilemma Part 3 will be released.
