As I wrote DWF: Divorced White Female, they became my favorite.

My new release coming this September is titled Waters of Separation. It deals with child labor in the cacao sector of the Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Africa was never a passion of mine until my protagonist came to life. I learned so much from my research that now I adore Africa.(less)
