Why did you decide to write it?
I am an avid reader that has always enjoyed reading many different genres. I began reading several romantic stories in the earlier part of 2019. Most of the stories were wonderful but some portrayed women in unflattering ways. I wanted to depict women who are strong, smart and independent, like the women I surround myself with. I wanted to see Black women portrayed as capable and intelligent. My characters are confident and feisty but have frailties and shortcomings that make them relatable and lovable.
What do you want readers to learn from the story?
I want readers to believe in the possibility of love, to experience different types of Black love, how to overcome demons from the past, and learn about forgiveness.
If you could pick another profession, what would it be and why?
I am currently an educator, and after twenty years, I still enjoy teaching and mentoring young people.
What’s the best part of being an author?
The best part of being an author is creating original characters and situations that are real and honest and funny. I have loved interacting with readers who have connected with my characters and story line.
What’s the worst part of being an author?
The worst part of being an author? The worst part of being an author is writer’s block.
What’s next for you?
I am currently working on several different stories, including the second installment of the Completely series, Incomplete Business Sebastian and Natalia.
Do you have anything you would like to add?
I am so very grateful to everyone who has supported me through my journey to authorship, especially the readers who took a chance on me as a new indie author.
