Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?

A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.

Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 

A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.


Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?

A.  A lot of brainstorming and researching to make sure the title isn’t already taken. I need my book titles to pop up in search without other book listings appearing above or below it. I thrive on uniqueness.





Q4. What are you working on for 2019? 

A. This year I’ll 
be releasing a stand-alone novella. It is a sequel to my debut novella, Testimonials Tales & Females. The book cover has been designed. I’m currently finishing up the draft to be sent to beta readers.

Q5. How long have you been writing? 

A. It’s been a long writing journey. 

Q6. What advice would you give other authors? 

A. Love your craft. Let your writing be your footprint to leave on the earth. 

Q7. where can people find you online?

A. My books are available wherever books are sold. People can find me on Facebook, IG, Twitter, & Goodreads. My website is www.jalissacarter.com

Q8. Do you plan on making more books in the future?

A. Absolutely! I feel like my books give me a purpose in life. I can’t wait to write more for book lovers. 

Q9. How many books have you written? 

A.  I’ve written too many to count. But, I’ve published two with book baby three on the way.

Q10 did you go to college to be a writer?

A. I actually went to college to be a wedding planner. But, I love attending writing seminars.

Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
