In the projects Jaliea Adasen is a young girl who is living a life of struggle caused by inner city poverty. She creates a persona (Poison) to match her ambitions of creating a crime family dedicated to achieving wealth and status for her. Raenel ‘Hollywood’ Forsythe is a key component to getting Jaliea ahead in the game of life. Jaliea accidentally stumbles upon her star player hiding his true identity. As punishment for his deception, she uses him to challenge her ideas of success by any means.
Poison was always coming up with new ideas for making new money. She attends a banquet and befriends a foreign film director in order to gain connections into the film entertainment industry. That is her gateway to serving the stars. Obtaining wealth was becoming easier with the connections Poison and her fiancé made.
Seeing a young girl on a street corner one night sparked an idea for a teen sex operation. The problem is Rena, her first recruit, didn’t follow Poison’s rules to the letter and she lost out. Rena was identified first by her cousin Richard. Poison finds out about it because Coal knows Rena’s cousin. Coal was shocked to learn of the surprise police questioning of his fiancé.
Damien ‘Coal Black’ Turner popped the big question to Poison after they bought their first baby a nightclub “The Clique Club”. After having some strange feelings physically and emotionally, Poison found out that she is expecting. Coal was excited Jaliea wasn’t.
Hollywood sees Poison’s shiny ring on her finger. Poison brags of her acceptance into matrimony with Coal. Hollywood wanted Poison for himself. He puts the idea in Poisons’ head that Coal is being unfaithful in an effort to cause problems in their relationship. Coal assures Poison he would never cheat but his suspicions about Hollywood being more than associates with his fiancé are in mind.
Hollywood is worried about his future with Jaliea and she is worried about the problems Hollywood may cause her marriage. Seducing Hollywood would clear the doubt in his head about their relationship. She and Hollywood and sometimes friends would go behind closed doors at the club and play rough. One of those nights was Poison’s bachelorette party.
While Poison was off getting married Hollywood was trying to find a way to deal with it. Sex and drug use increase and he found a woman. A night with Hollywood turns into a rape charge and taking the blame for Rena’s murder lands him in prison while Poison enjoys her honeymoon.
Meanwhile Poison and Coal start making life decisions together. Poison is feeling the stresses of having a newborn. She copes using drugs preferably ecstasy because of the sexual intensity of it. Her behavior is up and down and her x-rated persona needs Hollywood. She has to figure a way to get him out. Corruption in the justice system is her resolution. Lawyers and judges take her bribes. Hollywood is released on probation after only doing two years.
Poison’s plan to commit passion crimes against the weak in her community started with Zynae but when he met Temetria he hit the jackpot. Poison wants Temetria on video having sex for later use as extortion for money.
Poison loses Coal to another woman after CPS removes the child from their home. She uses Lailei to get revenge on Coal for breaking up their family. Hollywood feels bad about what Poison is doing and seeks Coal out to aid in his search for his missing daughter since he knows what Poison did with her.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote it for the purpose of entertaining a young audience. The idea came to me from hearing local gossip in my town and I thought I would conjure up my ideas from the images floating in my head. Sometimes when you hear something it speaks very loud to you.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters come from a mesh of people I know. I took a little bit of common folk’s personalities and behaviors and built the characters in my fiction story.I wanted the characters to seem realistic and relatable.
A nice breeze was blowing the tops of the big palm trees and a hot beaming sun was toasting her Egyptian toned skin. Her hair was long, black and cascading down her back. Her body was perfectly petite, voluptuously full, and proportionate in her two-piece bikini as she lay on a beach towel tanning in the Florida sun. Her backside was round with smooth thick thighs, chiseled calves, and a waist so tiny a scarf could be tied around it. Her cheekbones were high to the sky with small almond slanted eyes like a Japanese geisha and pouty puckered lips that glistened with Mac gloss. Poison was a beautiful woman. Irresistible to many, she had grown into a woman full of fire and power.
Next to her was the man that had been with her since high school; the man she loved. He was a tall 6’2” powerhouse with a chiseled body that seemed to have been personally crafted from God’s hands. His skin was two shades darker than it had been when Poison first saw him. It was shiny, smooth, and flawless like melted tar. His perfectly aligned teeth were white and contrasted nicely against his dark covering. He would smile at Jaliea, and she couldn’t help but return the favor.
To be successful on two playing fields, Jaliea created two different sides to her: one slightly good and the other horribly evil. Jaliea was the good; Poison was dangerously black-hearted. By day, she was Jaliea filled with kindness and graciousness for all those at the hospital, but by night, she was Poison and gravely destructive. Poison was sinister and deadly like a newly formed raging disease without a cure.
She had an air about her. When she walked by, people could feel an energy that surpassed evil. Her existence seemed toxic. It seemed she could kill just by looking their way. Coal didn’t care for the Poison persona that much. He even hated the name. He was smitten by Jaliea’s sexy sassiness and not Poison’s hungry heartlessness.
She would switch up this character for her lifestyle. She wanted her day job life kept pure and free from all the negativity that came with what she did behind closed doors in the darkness. Her work attitude at the hospital was different from her street personality, which could be far too ruthless and menacing at times. She had to be that way in the streets for anybody to take her seriously, but it could cost her the job she held in the hospital if the two worlds ever collided.
Everyone loved her on her day job. She had such a great personality and was always smiling and complimenting others. They could never think of anything bad to say about her. She was a people person in both worlds: outgoing, very sociable, and charming. She felt she could do no wrong. In her eyes, what she was doing was only providing for both her families: the immediate and the street.
Once again, her work had crept into another vacation. The entire time she was here all she could focus on was obtaining more money. She lay there in the sun daydreaming of how to put her life into motion to get to the next level. She was always thinking and contemplating about ways to better her situation. The thought of money made her tingle down below and soaked her panties. She was married to the hustle of making money.
In fact, she loved it just as much as she loved Coal. One day, she would walk down the aisle with him and sometimes she fantasized about how that would play out. She wanted children with her potential husband, but that life was far in the future. She was too youthful in mind and body to think about raising kids. Her goal was keeping herself up.
Even though her and Coal were doing well, she was hungry for more. She liked the random trips they were able to take like this one, and she loved the lavish shopping sprees to splurge on, but her real desire was to be so prosperous in money, power, and influence that everyone regarded her as the Messalina with a status.
She wanted her and her man never to want for anything for the rest of their lives, and she had a well thought out plan that so far had worked for them. She already started putting away for retirement. Her next step was to begin tucking away a little nest egg for college funds. She needed to save money for the three or four children she planned on having, preferably two girls and two boys. She even thought it would be nice if she could have two sets of twins, so she wouldn’t have to keep going through the childbirth rituals that might destroy her fabulous figure. She had a plan for it all.
Coal looked over at Jaliea and saw a smile on her face. “What are you thinking about, babe?” he asked.
She replied, “Our future together, I’m making a mental map in my head of all the directions we have to go to get to the destination we want.”
“Don’t overload your brain. This is supposed to be relaxation time.”
“I can’t help it. My mind is on my money, and my money is on my mind,” Coal finished her mantra in unison with her.
Jaliea enjoyed her much needed vacation with Coal, but knew it was almost time to head back home and jump start her ideas for gaining wealth. She and Coal lived together in a nice two-bedroom house that had been perfect for the two of them. Coal had moved up to supervisor at the UPS hub warehouse and was making good money.
Jaliea’s young-at-heart vigor kept her outgoing, mixing her in the loop of all the events and big names. One of her plans for wealth involved being around other wealthy people to get her own status raised. She knew it would take some time and perseverance, but she didn’t want anything to get in the way of that.
After attending a medical banquet one evening, she overheard an older more distinguished couple talking about having a charity fundraiser. They were talking to a director about filming infomercials for a fundraiser on TV. They were discussing all the difficulties, how much red tape they had to go through to set up the filming crew, and the financial restraints. Jaliea listened to the conversation and heard high dollar amounts being thrown around in it. The director told the couple they wouldn’t have to go through any type of screening or agency. All they had to do is pay a lump sum of money, and he would take care of the filming and directing.
Jaliea saw an opportunity for her from listening to the dialogue they were having. She wanted to know more about this director and his connections. She watched the man exchange business cards with the couple and move on to other people, working the room. Jaliea didn’t want to lose sight of him, so she followed him without trying to be too obvious. She waited to strike up a conversation with the foreign director at the right time.
She saw a window of opportunity when he was alone at the appetizer table, sampling finger foods. She gracefully approached him and purposely nudged into him. “Oh, I’m so sorry, sir,” she said with her warmest apologies.
“You’re fine, my lady,” he said.
“My name is Jaliea; I am an anesthesiologist at the hospital Bridden University.”
The director shook Jaliea’s hand, and Jaliea quickly jumped right into the conversation of the older couple.
“I overheard you talking to that couple over there and take it you are a director. What type of work are you involved in?”
The director was enamored with Jaliea’s beauty. He visually scanned her from head to toe. After looking her over, he explained that he did all sorts of film work and had directed a few documentaries for some major film companies. Jaliea wanted to know more about him. She also wanted to know if he knew of any of the really big name directors. He said he hadn’t worked with anyone significant and that he had been hired a few times by independent companies to direct some short films. He mentioned having worked with a friend from college who knew of some major people in the industry. Jaliea played as if she was interested in the director’s words, but her fascination was with his connections.
“Are you looking to do some advertising?” he asked.
“Not for me, but the hospital I work for could use some publicity.”
“I’ll tell you what Ms. Jaliea, how about we have a cocktail later at my place to discuss a little more about the marketing side of my business in filming?” Jaliea’s eyes lit up. “Sure, I would love to do that.”
After the banquet, the director told Jaliea when he was ready to leave and said she could ride in his limo to his penthouse suite at a very posh, upscale hotel. She left her car at the banquet hall to catch a ride in the director’s limo.
They arrived at the hotel and went to the top floor suite. Jaliea perceived how nice the room was. It was very luxurious, and you could tell the director had been doing something right to afford a room that nice. She was certain the director had done something notable on the big screen. He assured her that the small films he made had given him a gracious living and sometimes he splurged a little when he felt the need to be pampered.
“So, Jaliea, you want to know the ins and outs of the business of filmmaking?”
“Yes, I do,” she agreed. “I want to be in the hospital’s advertising commercials. If I can bring some great directors to the table, my chance of getting in them would increase. We all have something we want to go after, right?”
“Indeed, we do,” said the director. “I could help you, Jaliea, but I want to know what I will get out of the deal for making some connections.”
“What do you want?” asked Jaliea seductively.
“I want you.”
“Only if you give me all I need.”
“Trust me to give you everything you want.”
