Conversations with the author:

1.       What inspired you to write?

I was inspired to write based on my growing up being an avid reader. I would even sneak and read my grandmother’s romance novels. It didn’t matter the race who wrote the book as long as it was a good read, which always interested me in writing but I never got the courage to write until recently this year. I am inspired by those writers who show their love for writing in their works they publish.

2.       What writers inspired you to write? And would you be interested in collaborating with them?

My mentor Michele Fletcher of Charge It To The Game, Kwan, Ashley and Jaquavis, Nikki Turner as well as Sister Soldier. Yes, Of course I would love to collaborate with either of them!

My favorite genre is romance and that goes for reading and writing genres.
