Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Twists & Turns is a continuation of 'A Love Story, Lydia & Jerome Book 1.' I created strong chemistry between the couple. They are so much in love. It's a love like Lydia had never experienced before. But because of Jerome's past she's afraid that if things turn sour she'll be in too deep to recover without very painful consequences.
I loved the chemistry between the two of them so much I didn't want their story to end.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was inspired by Terry McMillan and Walter Mosley. I've read all but one of Terry's books and nearly all of Walter's Easy Rawlins series. Although they are both very skilled at their craft (which I hope to be one day) they both write very natural and down to earth. So after the idea of writing stories had been suggested to me several times by my husband, one day I finally sat down with a pen and a story started developing. I wasn't sure where it was going. I just kept writing.

Being in-love can be complicated. Add in sordid pasts and you make it even more so. But it’s that uncertainty that makes love exciting.

She starts to worry about what he is doing when he isn't with her.
