Q & A
I’m an author. Currently indie author. Right now I do it because I have creative control of my work. I hope to one day have a book that is published traditionally. I love telling stories, and writing. I always have. It is one of the things that makes me happy. I want to share my stories with the world.
My most recent work is called Don’t Blame Me. It was inspired by the Taylor Swift song of the same title.. This is a second chance romance. It’s a interracial romance. I had fun writing this story.
Here is the blurb: Sometimes love’s a drug. The rush can be so addicting. All that matters is the high. Not the consequences. Not the damage left in its wake. Adrian Robinson was a college football star, with his future all mapped out. He didn’t expect to fall for feisty, Leah Hunter. Nor did he expect the destruction left in its wake when it all came to an end.
Now, Adrian’s a hotel magnate and one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. He has it all, except the one woman he has kept in his heart for years. And he’s willing to do anything to get her back. Leah hasn’t seen Adrian since the day she was forced to pick up the pieces of her broken heart. When Leah is assigned to write a piece on him for her magazine, remnants of their torrid romance still burn like yesterday. Will the high be worth it this time? Or is it destined to crash and burn?
Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Toni Morrison and Beverly Jenkins.
Catch Me If I Fall because it was one of those books that touched on many issues. Don’t Blame Me as it is a bit different than my norm, and my first full length novel.
To keep going. I have a chronic illness called fibromyalgia and sometimes when I’m in a lot of pain, I have to remember to keep pushing for what I want, no matter what it is.
I would like to hit number 1 on The New York Time’s Best Sellers List and have a movie made from one of my books.

“Fix another Queen’s crown without telling the world it was crooked.” -Unknown
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” -J.K Rowling
I want to remembered for the stories I write. I want to be remembered for being kind and for always being myself.
I am working on many. Don’t Blame Me will be available August 10, 2018. A motorcycle club book called Lady Guardians: Switching Lanes which will be available in 2019. Book 3 of The Kim Brothers series also in 2019. And many other projects.
On Amazon: Available in eBook and print.
