She enjoys travel, reading urban fiction, writing (of course!) and spending time with family.
What inspires you to write?
Just the things I saw around me on a daily basis as I grew up. I grew up with a constant awareness of street life and what it was like to constantly have to hustle.
Tell us about your writing process.
I don’t really have a process, but I guess you’d call me a pantser. I just write as the ideas hit.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
No, not really. They do have voices, however.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just that they need to keep writing, no matter what. Hopefully they are writing for a love of writing, since few of us will become rich.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I knew someone who had published and achieved a modicum of success doing so, and I simply decided to follow in their footsteps.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that as indies continue to find success, the concept of hybrid authors is going to become more common. I think the number of books published each year will peak or even begin to retract as some authors – realizing that publishing isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme – leave the industry.
What genres do you write?: urban fiction, women’s fiction, african american, romance, urban romance, crime
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
