What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write a story depicted a male character struggling with issues of abandonment and how his running away from his pain only caused him to run into it. Many novels have a strong female lead and are written for women while Platinum Dust is a book anyone can enjoy and appreciate it.
I wanted to give men a voice in this tale of abandonment, heartbreak, redemption, love and forgiveness.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters chose me, I only write when the mood hits and I let the words flow out of me. My characters had something wanted to say and I was the hands they chose to tell their story.
I was speechless and his words stung, but I took it. He had a right to vent and I would give him that much.
“Do you know what it’s like to have what you’ve always wanted placed before you then to have it snatched from you within a moment’s notice? Do you know what it’s like to look two little kids in the face who didn’t deserve the life you created for them? Before you go off judging me you may want to live in my shoes.” His face twisted into a look of disbelief.
“Live in your shoes huh? Well are those the same damn shoes that walked me to my aunt’s house seven hours away? Or how about the same shoes that left you mother and fatherless, tell me something Janet did you really want kids or did you think we would help you hold onto your man?”
As much as I wanted to give him a chance to express himself, I couldn’t tolerate the disrespect.
