I live in Philadelphia, PA where by day I work on public policy reform and by night I read authors who move me, and craft woman-centered fiction. I like all genres and think nothing is too trivial to read, or to write about. Relationships are my greatest obsession; how they work, why they don't and what happens as they spin out of control, or come together perfectly. When I don't write, I think about writing, and unpack my own experiences for things to write about. And in the odd moment, when I'm doing neither, I enjoy time with friends, observing popular culture and decoding what it all means.

Hi EmJay-
Thank you! I would love to release audio versions of my books. Lately I've been listening to a lot more audiobooks and so the idea has become even more appealing. It's something I plan to explore in the next year.

I think writing about the characters from the Commitment series is something I do often because it's both enjoyable and, quite honestly, easy. I know them so well at this point that it's not difficult to follow them into new and different circumstances, nor to widen their circle. But having said that, after 2017, I hope to challenge myself more by writing about completely unrelated characters.(less)

About the book:





It’s a career-making opportunity.





Summer has an invitation to ‘Black America’s Wedding of the Decade’ and wouldn’t miss it for the world. Deuce Scaife is finally marrying his college sweetheart Zora Diallo (an outcome that was never in doubt, by the way, except maybe to the two people getting married) and since there’ll be celebrities all over the event, it’s i...

Nia Forrester is 22% done with The Family Upstairs: Bit fan of Lisa Jewell. I just like how she writes, so it's gotten to the point I almost don't care what she writes. Not sure where this story is going, but I'm enjoying the ride so far.

“He had never thought in his wildest imagination of marriage as an option for
him. Never believed there was a woman out there that would make him sign up for that particular brand of madness. And, in the abstract at least, it still sounded like madness but this wasn’t about marriage, it was about Riley. With her, he knew that boyfriend-girlfriend shit wasn’t going to be enough. He had to have her locked down.

“I had lunch with my brothers,” Mark said, his face serious. “While you were still asleep. They told me. About Corey and that stupid set-up you agreed to where you’d pretend not to be my wife . . .”
“I never agreed to pretend not to be your wife,” Dylan said.
Mark’s face grew serious then. “That’s what it amounted to in the end though, didn’t it? You pulled away from me in exchange for me getting . . . what?”
“Your career back,” Dylan said. “Your life.”
“Dylan, you’re my life. You.
