Felicia Denise Hi, Monica!

Family Matters has not released yet. Issues with my husband's health put me behind schedule. Good news, though - it will be available for preorder in mid-January and release February 28th.

Many thanks for your interest. I hope you enjoyed the first part of Olivia Chandler's story.

Merry Christmas!

Felicia Denise 'Family Matters', which is the unintended book 2 to 'In the Best Interest of the Child.' Also working on 'Heartburn' which will be released in Spring 2018.
Felicia Denise Thank you!

Wow! Tough question! Olivia and I have been on this journey for more than two years now, and I'm still finding out new things about her.

No doubt, the tragedy of her childhood changed the path of her life, but I believe her destiny would have been the same regardless - a successful legal career. I feel this is owed in part not only to the years she had with her father but Olivia's determination to live up to his memory.

Despite the trauma and violence of Olivia's childhood and the emotional damage they caused, I admire Olivia's strength. She longed for a familial connection, but she never expected or wanted anyone to take care of her. She didn't give up or give in - neither was ever an option for her. Olivia's situation would have broken most people, but Olivia had lost so much, she wouldn't lose herself too. This is why her strength is my favorite quality.
Felicia Denise Imitation is the best form of flattery, but don't imitate other writers because of their success or writing style.

When you imitate or copy someone you're silencing your own voice... and your own passions, beliefs, integrity - everything which makes you unique.

Be yourself - do you! Find what works for you in your own way and in your own time. Be an original instead of an echo.
Felicia Denise Connecting with people on a level even some friends never attain.

I still receive email referencing my debut novel. Though it was a work of fiction, many readers connected with the childhood trauma associated with foster care and shared their stories with me.
Felicia Denise I take random notes throughout the day and week as they come to mind for different projects. If I get blocked on something, I go through my notes and work on something else.
Felicia Denise I have two books releasing this summer, but I'm bound and determined to make the time to clear some amazing reads off my TBR which is have been sitting unfinished for far too long from Kiru Taye, Caroline Bell Foster, and Marcia Meara.
