Book Spotlight – Love on the Run – Leila E. Hart

Tell us about your book Love on the Run.

Love on the Run is an enemies to lovers romance. Both the heroine and hero have their guard up and are set against love, or are they?

 Why did you decide to write it?

I decided to write Love on the Run because I wanted to share a story that showed Black people find happiness and love, even after being hurt. I remember not seeing a lot of black love stories in book stores, and feeling as if the world didn’t think Black people could have meaningful, loving relationships, or a relationship that wasn’t toxic and struggling.

 What’s the best part of being an author?

The best part of being an author is being able to write stories that take you on a journey and allow a therapeutic escape from reality.

 What’s the worst part of being an author?

The worst part of being an author is edits, rewrites, marketing, and when you have to cut a part of the story, you really like because it doesn’t fit in the book.

 Who is your favorite character in the book, and why?

Raj Blaine- the hero is my favorite character because he redeems himself. He’s a bit annoying in the beginning, but he sees the error of his ways.

 What was the hardest part of writing the story?

Making sure nothing is left out. Authors know the story in their own head, so we have to make sure we’re giving the audience all the pieces. We can’t assume readers will tie everything together.

 If you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?

Hot Mess Express. Because life throws you curveballs, and they aren’t always pretty.

 What is something readers would be surprised to know about you?

I am disabled, and suffer from a condition called CRPS.

 What are you currently working on right now?

I’m currently (slowly) working on a romantic suspense, entitled A Deadly Slice.
