Basically I became interested in becoming a writer after reading Terry McMillan’s novel Disappearing Acts. In 2004 my author dreams were realized via the release of my controversial debut novel My Daughter’s Boyfriend, the story of a 34-year old single mother that becomes attracted to her teenage daughter’s boyfriend.

I love writing about marriage, infidelity, juicy love triangles, family, romance, women's issues, and male/female relationships. It never gets boring to write about what human beings go through.

My novels make you think and feel! If it doesn't do that, I haven't done my job.

I cannot think of a couple that is more Larger than Life than those two. And the reason i selected them as my favorite fictional couple is because I like how they challenged one another. To me they had a toxic relationship and it was fun to see how Rhett would put Scarlett in her place and do things that would infuriate her and I enjoyed seeing her reaction to him. They had kind of a love-hate relationship that was pretty intense.

Writing is very intense for me and taking time to relax may help.
(2) Sometimes I can think about which characters are in the scene that I'm working on; where are they at exactly, what is about to happen or what just happened? I have to ask myself a few questions and visualize what should come next.(less)
