ICE NEAL SAYS:

‘God is my greatest inspiration. My work reflects the life that I know. And, the life that I know has all kinds of things and experiences, emotions, and beliefs in it.’

‘I don’t want to tell people what they want to hear, and I don’t want to show them what they want to see, but the truth. When they view my work, they will experience a roller-coaster of realistic and truthful surprises, good or bad, just as life has presented them to me. I thrive even for my fiction stories to be colourful just as the life around me is.’

‘I am a Christian, and above all, a human who’s not perfect. Just as I do my best every day to be a better person, even though some people can make it extremely difficult and at times hurt you for doing good, I hold on to God, and His love, strength, and guidance make me succeed. My work mainly shows the struggle of a human being who makes mistakes. I am not ashamed to tell the truth or show another fellow my weakness. I am not ashamed to say, ‘I’m sorry, Lord Jesus. Oops, I did it again, please help me, forgive me!’ That is how I can manage life, and love God, and love people. Thank you, Lord. 🙂 ‘
