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

I started writing at a very young age. Back then I was mainly into poetry and music. I wrote my own lyrics as well as lyrics for others. While I loved writing music, I lost my interest in performing. I became bored and less enthused with that part of it. I then found found myself going into banking. I loved my job but there was still something missing. I eventually found my way back to the pen, and the rest is history.

Do you have a special routine when you write?

I have to have a nice hot fresh cup of coffee and a quiet atmosphere.

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

Stud Princess is my most urban steet-lit project. It’s the follow-up to My Secrets Your Lies. It picks up right where My Secrets left off and it spins a tale of a lesbian stud and femme couple, fighting for their love. My most recent release is Twisted Seduction. It’s a story of two best-friends who will stop at nothing to have the man of their dreams. Even when the cost of betrayal has a price tag neither of them can afford. It’s a story of love, sacrifice, deceit, infidelity, lust, scandal, drama, and all that falls in between. I am currently writing the next installment of this series as we speak.

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

I would have to say my most favorite is Chyna in my novel Stud Princess because she’s a female pimp and I think I might have been her in my past life. LOL!!!

What do you say to critics of street fiction?

It’s not for you to understand, agree with, or relate to. You’ll never understand because the stories aren’t about you. But if you open your mind you’ll realize there’s a whole different world outside the one you live in, and the authors of this genre are only vehicles taking you on a ride through someone’s journey or someone’s life. It’s not going to always be peaches because it’s just as real as the things you see on the news.

Why should librarians purchase street fiction for their collections?

To have a broader collection of stories told and or published by African American authors, and to accommodate avid readers who are lovers of this genre.

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

Just Do It! Don’t let the naysayers put a damper on your dream. Do your research regardless of which genre you choose to write in, and always be willing to invest in yourself even if no one else will.
