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

I began writing about six years ago. I had become very ill and shortly after having my first child I spent a year in the hospital battling a disease they now refer to as Valley Fever. While I was ill I wrote journals about my time with illness, my desires, for my daughter, and my goals that I thought were going to never see the light. Later, after I developed my non-profit Girl Power I set out to teach girls about the importance of health and body image. Things I had issues with after having to learn how to walk, speak, and live with the scars on my face and neck.

About a year after starting the program I fell ill again and had to give up touring the schools. I started to get depressed so I went back to to school. I earned several certifications and degrees in psychology and the medical field. Since, I suffered from diabetes I decide that I wanted to focus on the elderly, diabetes, alzheimers.

Even though I finished schooling my love was writing. I couldn’t dodge it. So I ended up starting my teen literacy program and awareness group about bullying and violence in schools. Now of course this was something I hadn’t planned on at all. About a year and a half ago right after the first release of my book in the My Nemesis Book Series my brother was murdered. It set a fire under me, I was so angry. Just a few years ago I was his age battling for my life. We both were on our way in our career’s so I couldn’t understand why he was taken.

The positive spin came to me while I continued to mourn and hide a way from the public. I wrote countless hours and finally in it all I figured out that the writing had served as a way of self-counsel. The craft had saved my life.

Do you have a special routine when you write?

Yes, gummi bears or a peanutbutter cup with a coke on ice, or tall ice cold drink. Pitch black with the calm hum of the fan. I have kiddies so my work never ends. At night is my favorite time to write, or in the out doors. My thoughts seem to be much clear.

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

Well I just released the first book to my X-files Series, It is my series of Love, Lust, and Greed. The X-files Series is filled with erotic stories that tell the tales of women scorn. These poor unfortunate souls have been duped for the last time and someone is about to pay the piper. “They say that there is a thin line between Love and Hate…, or is it a thin line between Love and Money…?” You be the judge…

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

I would have to say Joy from the My Nemesis book series. She is the one that holds a lot in. She is the go to gal. The oldest of all her siblings and she is treated like a doormat. At least, until she finally says enough is enough and she decides that she deserves respect and love. Her main issue has a lot to deal with her childhood, her need for acceptance, and her fear of abandonment.

What do you say to critics of street fiction?

I honestly haven’t heard any just yet. In general I hear that the idea of street fiction allows for an exception to the rule of proper english etc. etc. I think books should read as if they were being said. It is easier for people to relate to what we are trying to say if they can feel what we are trying to say. All genres do the same. We read and relate to our life experiences. Whether it be street, romance, historical, and the list goes on.

Why should librarians purchase street fiction for their collections?

understanding, diversity, truth, cultural awareness…

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

Read…
Research…
Don’t accept No as their final answer.

Any final words for fans of your books?
