What are the titles of the urban fiction books you have had published?

Diamond Dreams

Tell us a little about yourself. How did you get started writing?

I’m from Hampton, VA. I moved to Philadelphia, PA to pursue my writing career and to continue to grow my network. I started really writing stories in middle school. The names of my first characters from my first novel Mizz Drama was made up when I was in the 8th grade. I started working on that novel in high school. I plan to re-release that novel, but I want people to keep in mind that I was in high school when I wrote it. I received a lot of feedback from that novel.

Do you have a special routine when you write?

I have a playlist of music from my favorite artists, whether it’s Hip Hop and R&B that I listen to while writing. At times, I have candles lit and I MUST have some chewing gum or sunflower seeds.

Tell us more about your last book, and what are you working on now?

My last novel I released was Diamond Dreams, which is currently available on I am working on a piece that deals with everyday life for women. I don’t really want to get into what’s is about until it’s completely finished.

Who’s your favorite character from your books? Why?

Madison would be my favorite character. She’s from my novel Diamond Dreams, I like her because she used to be a sweet person until someone pushed her to become “The good girl gone wild”. She’s blunt and she doesn’t care what people think about her.

What do you say to critics of street fiction?

If they watch movies and such, they really shouldn’t be such hard critics on street fiction or urban fiction, because in reality its both entertainment. Some people exercise their entertainment by either reading, hearing, or watching.

Why should librarians purchase street fiction for their collections?

If they can put DVDs in the library with action, violence, and etc, they can put these books in there as well. It’s not any different.

What advice do you have for new authors who hope to publish their urban fiction books?

Just do it. Even if you have to do it by yourself, don’t wait for someone to do it for you. At the end of the day you have a dream that only you will chase.
