Let’s start with the basics: when did you first know you were an author?
I knew I was a writer at a very young age; maybe by 6 but it took me until adulthood to realize that it was my livelihood. Not until 2014.
How many books have you published?
Are there any that did not get published?
Two are still lying in the vault.
Are you still going to make that happen?
I don’t know yet. Something tells me they we just for me but who knows what will happen. Life is funny that way.
Written any really bad stories that we will never see?
When you say bad, do you mean naughty? LOL. Hell yeah. Have you read my books?!
What do you have currently out now?
Breaking Her Rules and Be With Me are my current releases.
What keeps you motivated to write the next story?
Telling my characters’ stories. They won’t quiet until I do. I love pleasing them since they are so interesting.
I’m working on a story with Angelia Vernon Menchan that will be release early next year. Love’s Required will follow it.
What can we, as you’re support group, do to help you?
Buy and read my books, review and talk about my books. Share links if inclined to.
What is the wildest thing a fan has said to you?
Oh goodness, I’m asked all kinds of questions. I’m usually asked if I have the kind of sex that my characters have.
How important are reviews to you?
Ever receive any hurtful reviews? Elaborate?
Not really. I received a 2 star recently(my first) that felt “off” but I let it go. She had a right to her opinion.
What conventions are you planning to attend in 2017?
I haven’t decided yet. Since becoming self-employed I have decided to be careful about how I use my resources in this business but I love connecting with readers.
Are you planning any independent reader events for yourself?
Yes, one next year.
Tell us one thing you’d like us to remember about you?
That I love what I do.
Any authors you recommend?
Roy Glenn, Beverly Jenkins, Nia Forrester, Eva J. Brock and many others I can’t think of before having coffee.
Who inspires or motivates you?
God and living a spirit led life inspires me. My passion motivates me daily.
Any last thoughts?
Thanks for the opportunity to share with you all.
