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

A. I don't tend to reread books. However, as a substitute teacher for mainly high school and middle school students, I have reread The Outsiders which is one of my favorite novels. It was an assignment for HS students so I took the opportunity to reread it.

Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from?

A. Ever since I was a child I wanted to write. In fact, I wrote and illustrated books in third grade. It wasn't until about 10 years ago that I decided to write a novel. My novel took a few months to write. Over 2 years ago, I dusted it off the proverbial shelf to get it ready to be published.

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

A. My novel is a YA edgy Christian romance. I wanted a short catchy name and one that was in keeping with the storyline. Due to reoccurring themes in the novel, I decided to call it Not Again. I considered other names but kept coming back to Not Again.

Q4. Anything you're currently working in 2019?

A. I plan on working on my sequel to Not Again. I started writing it, but have been swamped with trying to get my debut novel published.

 Q5. How long have you been writing?

A. I suppose I have been writing since I learned how to write.

Q6.  What advice would you like to give to other authors?

A. I'm such a newbie. My biggest advice would be to not give up. I had so many obstacles that have caused delays, but I refuse to let that deter me.

Q7. Where can we connect with you online?

A.  New subscribers to my website receive a free audio meditation download.

I start my day off by posting morning blessings on social media; FB, Instagram & Twitter. Reading those blessings/scriptures & looking at the accompanied pictures fills my spirit. For inspirational & Christian content, you're welcome to follow me. It's a great way to start the day!

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?
