-What is your genre? What draws you to this genre?
Urban-Fiction-Life and Drama, short stories and poetry.
I wanted to write a book that grasps my reader’s attention at first glance, and we all know drama sells, so that’s what I went for.
-What is your purpose?
My purpose is to be that chosen one to stand with those who have been told no, or that they can’t do it. I’m here to show them that they can and I’m willing to stand with them through this journey. I love helping people, I love listening to those who need me as well. I lived to share my story of Domestic Violence that alone tells me my life purpose is to live.
-Who has influenced your life as an author?
Honestly, in the beginning Tragedy and trauma. As time progressed I took a big liking to authors like Wahida Clark and Ashley Antoinette. I love those two ladies.

I do a lot of promotions with blogs, I use my social media platforms; Facebook, and Instagram.
