How do you get the idea for your book?
-The idea for the short story series Lucy Mason came about when I took Walter Mosley’s Master Writing class. He gave an assignment for us to write a short story every day for 30 days. I was trying to find my writing mojo after going through chemotherapy for the first time from Sept 2019 to January 2020. I need to find my love of writing and it was taking writing classes that helped me to brainstorm stories and this story came to life by accident. I was trying to write a romance short story but God had another plan for me to get this story out of my heart and head.
What is your favorite line from your book question?
I don’t have a favorite line because I love the entire story. However, I do love the fact she finds her worth to know she don’t deserve someone to hurt her. It was a point in the story where she had her wake up moment that I pray any woman in her situation can get to that place Lucy found her worth.
Which of your characters do you believe are most like you and why question?
I was more like Carol, the big sister always coming to rescue of one of my friends or siblings. I am the protector and problem solver in the family. That is why Carol and I are most alike.
