We had the good fortune of connecting with Chiquita Dennie and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chiquita, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
The one thing people aren’t aware of is that being a self-published takes time, it doesn’t happen over night. Becoming an author takes patience and the love of being creative.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m a self-published author and filmmaker that creates out-of-the-box characters. The challenges of starting out was hard five year ago because I tried to be like other authors and it didn’t get me anywhere. Now I focus on my own style and flavor of stories.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would say visiting museums, parks, and Hollywood is fun. I like outdoor restaurants and Blue Jam cafe is my favorite for breakfast or Crossroads

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give credit to my mom and friends for always building up each release that I have and supporting by sharing and talking about my work.
