1. Tell us about your most recent release. First, I want to thank Midnight Seductions for this interview. I really do appreciate it. Right now, I have So Much Better out with Phaze Books. It’s the sequel to Desire. It’s an interracial romance with Richie Davidson and Keri Walker. In addition, the print copy of Desire and Lucky Charms has got released in a print book called Lucky Desire from Phaze books. I’m very excited about both.
2. What genre do you prefer to write? Is there a genre you’d like to write in that you haven’t tried yet? I write interracial romance about black women and white men. I have written a book about a Native American man with a black woman called Be With you. I would love to try my hand at another genre, but I haven’t gotten a clear story in my head about which one I want to write.
3. What do you like to read? I read a variety of books. It’s always so hard for me to just pick only one.
4. What do you feel is your strength as an author? For instance: characterization, dialogue,
sexual tension, sex scenes???? I feel my strength is getting my readers to feel some kind of emotions about my characters. I know my first book Taken by Storm, some readers LOVED Storm and other readers HATED him with a passion, but they had an opinion which I always enjoy hearing about. With my series, my readers have fallen in love with the lives of the characters and want to find out more about their friends.
5. How did you choose your pen name? Does it hold some significance special to
you? I was trying out different pen names and it just seemed to fit me the best.
6. Where do you see your writing career taking you? Goals for two, four, six
years. God. I hope that I will still have fans enjoying my writing and hopefully maybe I’ll on a New York Times Best Sellers list. Crossing my fingers.
7. Do you ever use people you know as characters in your book, or composites? I can say that I haven’t used too many people that I know as characters in my books. My characters usually have such strong personalities that they keep me on my toes all by themselves.
8. Do you find that your creativity is more active mornings, afternoon, or
evenings? I find that my creativity is more active in the afternoon and late at night.
9. What well-known author would you compare your work to or hope that you've
achieved the same level of excitement? Wow…that is a tough question. I’m not really sure.
10. What’s your favorite leisure activity? Why? I love to read and cook when I get the chance. It’s give me this inner peace that I love to feel anytime I can get the chance.
