My sister and I got to tag along working on our math skills by counting the money from the till. My birthday is in September, so I did not get as many birthday parties as my younger sister, who was born in May, did, but my mom still made my birthday special. Even if it was taking me to What-a-burger and letting me order whatever I wanted. It was special to me. Though money was tight, my sister and I went to camp during the summer; paid for by our church and my mother saved enough money for us to go to the beauty shop every six weeks to get our hair relaxed, straightened , and styled into Shirley Temple curls.
I remember one summer that stands out. Mom did not get a summer job right away, and she used up her savings. One day, she set the table with plates and utensils, but there was no food to prepare. She called us to the table to pray. I thought she was crazy for a minute, but we sat at the table and blessed the non- existent food on our plates.
Within minutes of praying, there was a knock at the door. My mom answered it and it was a lady we never met before. She held several brown paper grocery bags. I need nothing. I was passing by your house and something told me to stop here. Do you need them? She and my mom became friends. How did your husband inspire you to write romance? When my husband and I were dating, we had a long distance relationship.
He lived in Pennsylvania and I lived in Georgia. We met online on interracialmatch. He would have roses delivered to my house. We would write each other every day. Talk on the phone for hours, although he did most of the talking.
He finally came to Georgia for a visit the day after Thanksgiving and I knew as soon as I spotted him, he was going to be my husband. He was so open and loving; a single parent of a teenage daughter and I was a widow with kids of my own. He was old-fashioned and sweet. It was a very sweet romance, my kids, well the younger ones took to him right away, my eldest daughter and his daughter, not so much, but over time, that would change too.
He proposed on Christmas Eve Our wedding vows included the kids; he vowed to love and protect them as his own. It was the joining of two families. Many of them, including my husband, convinced me to write a book. That is how I got started; one book led to two and so on.
How did you come up with the idea for this trilogy? I based these stories on my blog articles; My husband was the inspiration for Chocolate Truffle; It was the nickname he gave to me. He was a classically trained chef. I gained 35 lbs during our first years together. Because of health reasons, we no longer take part, but we still have some great friends and memories from our time with them.
I wanted to show how women can be loving dominants. Love Bytes A Vampire Tale was a story that just came to me and took on a life of its own. Oh yes, but only after Sirene has done her drum walk. Then I would love to meet him. How many series have you written in the romance genre? Which is your favorite one? I have three the first one being a continuation of Love Bytes.
When two people are meant to be together, they will be, no matter what happens. According to you, how different and difficult is it to write romantic suspense books? Writing romance suspense has been more challenging, but I love a good challenge. I am a fan of the Nancy Drew Mysteries, since my teen years. Why did you take a long break from writing for about 8 years? In what ways did it help you?
I went through some tough life changes, physically and mentally. I did not take criticism well, constructive or not. I felt I was not a very good writer, and I did not realize it, but I was dealing with depression and anxiety and menopause at the same time. My younger best friend decided she no longer wanted to be my friend after ten years of friendship, and I was heartbroken for a very long time.
I was in chronic pain with my back and neck. I had to have neck surgery in after two collapsed discs and steroid injections in my low back. After nine months of healing, I began to work on my weight, I would eventually lose 95 lbs and compete in a bodybuilding competition in which I won second place overall in I also learned how to battle my depression demons and have a sharper mind. I learned to "go with the flow. I became a Zumba instructor in , a personal trainer in , a group fitness instructor, yoga, and Tai Chi in I became more grounded, and I wanted to get back to writing.
So I began to just journal. I think the time away from writing and my life changes helped strengthen me. In early , I injured my back during a set of deadlifts.
I was so pumped, I did not realize just how badly. I pulled off the extra weight and finished my set. However, I was limping after I left the locker room and I drove myself home, showered and laid down. Later on, I could not get up as the muscle spasms were too painful to move or even breathe. That ended by days as a body builder, but four weeks after my back surgery, I went back into the hospital with pneumonia and bilateral pulmonary embolisms, blood clots in both lungs.
I stayed in the ICU for six days. The clots caused damage to my lungs and I now have adult onset asthma. It also caused issues with my heart. While I still have a cardiologist and a pulmonologist who monitor me faithfully, I am happy to say I am doing much better. I went to cardio-pulmonary rehab at the hospital and now I am walking breathing without assistance.
Being a licensed Zumba instructor, a yoga instructor, Tai Chi, and a group fitness trainer; Have you ever based any of your female characters as a fitness trainer or instructor? None of my characters are into fitness, but I just got back to writing in June , so that is a possibility. You have stuck to romance as your preferred genre of writing. Do you think you would like to explore any other genres?
Which ones? I have crossed into crime solving, mystery and suspense, so it would not be a huge leap there. I would love to explore more fantasy with fairies, dragons, kings, and queens. Fairy tales would be fun to write too. What message or lessons are you trying to convey through your stories in your books? The message is love conquers all, there is hope, and you have to believe in yourself to rise above your circumstances. The greatest gift we have is love.
More than just Eros, physical attraction , but Agape, unconditional love. Love for your fellow man, love for yourself and love for your creator. Faith, hope and love. How do you try to grow from the reviews that your work gets- both positive and negative? I have grown enough in my character to take constructive negative reviews and work to improve my writing. Positive reviews means I am on the right track.
