What is your writing process?

I begin by writing my ideas in a notebook, then I create an outline for the book.

Is there a genre, other than the one you currently write in, that you wish you could break into?

I strictly enjoy writing about interracial romance.

What are the 5 books that have influenced you the most, and why?

Five books that influenced me as an interracial romance author are The Color of Trouble by Dyanne Davis, Shades of Desire by Monica White, The Color of Love by Sandra Kitt, The Taming of Jessi Rose by Beverly Jenkins and Milk in My Coffee by Eric Jerome Dickey. These novels influenced me because it was refreshing to read romance novels featuring interracial romance.

If you could cast one of your works, who would you choose to play your main characters?

I would cast Thandie Newton at the leading lady and Henry Cavill as the leading man.

What is the first thing you would do if you woke up one morning to find one of your books on the NY Times Bestsellers List?

I would call my mom.

Do you have any vices that you turn to while you are writing?
