BPM: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
My interest in writing came after my mother died of Breast Cancer. I originally started writing poems. Then later I decided to dive into the craft of writing fiction, and unbeknownst to me I found my passion.
BPM: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of your family.
Author Brenda Jackson. She’s been there from the beginning, and I greatly appreciate her.
BPM: What does “growth” mean to you?
For me, if one person reads and likes my book(s) then that’s growth.
BPM: What does “challenge” mean to you? What do you find particularly challenging in writing?
Marketing my book and getting it in the hands of readers has been the greatest challenge for me.
BPM: Introduce us to your book and the main characters. What makes each one special? Do you have any favorites?
My book Sinful Seduction is a suspense drama packed with sensual romance that begins with Katilla. Katilla is a nurse that was recently dumped by her NFL superstar boyfriend. The sudden breakup leaves her scorn and unable to trust. Now that she’s out on the dating market again, she’s determined not to let any man break her heart. Believing that true love is impossible, she meets fine, and handsome Dr. Kenneth Michaels. Because of her past, Katilla only has one thing on her mind, and that’s seducing Kenneth so she can get accepted into medical school.
Kenneth is a leading cardiologist still grieving the death of his wife when he meets Katilla. Feeling as if he’s already had his opportunity at true love, he’s surprised when he begins a steamy love affair with her and begins to fall madly in love. But then suddenly, when he learns of Katilla’s seductive secret to use him so she can get accepted into medical school, and her destructive ex boyfriend returns with a scandal of his own, things become explosive! They’re thrown them into a painful web of lies, deceit, and danger!
Sinful Seduction has many twists and turns, ups and downs, and evokes many emotions. However, in the end it demonstrates that true love prevails. Katilla is special because she’s a dedicated friend, has a good heart, and goes to back for the people she loves. Kenneth is special because when he finally gives love a second chance, he gives it 100 percent and he’s a strong, likeable man.
BPM: Why did you choose to write in your particular genre? If you write in more than one genre, how do you balance them?
It’s so much fun to write suspense drama! Writing suspense drama gives me the freedom to incorporate things like danger, love, and drama. I love it! I also write romantic suspense, and mainstream. As far as balancing them, I try to alternate between the genres, and it’s hard.
BPM: Ultimately, what do you want readers to gain from your book?
After reading my book, I want readers to come out with a sense of empowerment, and believing that true love conquers.
BPM: What are your goals as a writer? Do you set out to educate? Entertain? Illuminate? Inspire?
As a writer my goal is to educate, entertain, and inspire. I hope to take some of the proceeds from my book and continue my nonprofit Breast Cancer Foundation.
BPM: Do you think book sales are the only indicator of your success as a writer?
Not at all. I feel my main success as a writer is what I give back to my community. Life is not about what I can receive, but what I can give. Afterall, in the end, it’s how you made a positive difference in the lives of others.
BPM: What can we expect to see/read from you during the next stage of your career? Any series or new characters?
Yes! I have a new series, coming out later this Fall, tentatively titled…the Dangerous Sexy Cops. It’s about four women cops, all friends, that solve high crimes cases, all while trying to balance families, children, and their love lives. It’s packed with drama.
BPM: Share with us your latest news. How may our readers follow you online?
The latest news is that I made Amazon’s Bestseller’s list for top 100 dramas in the United States. I’d like to thank all my readers for their support! I couldn’t have accomplished this dream without them. And believe me, this is a dream come true for me. Thanks a million!
