How do you get the idea for your book Good Thing Come?
This is a sequel to What Goes Around Comes Around and follows Nikki as she reconnects to her Puerto Rican roots.
Which of your characters do you believe are most like you and why question?
I am like all the characters because each character represents a time in my life. Lisa is me as a young girl sassy and loving life not yet know the consequences. Nikki is broken-hearted after the demise of her marriage, and I can relate to the sadness she feels when her relationship is over. Annie is careful and ready for love and there was a time in my life when I felt like that. Tracye is the wise older woman still loving, but a little jaded and a little more cautious than the younger women.
What message do you hope readers will take away from your book?
I want readers to take away that there is always hope, and that God cares for them. Despite all the struggles in this life there is always hope and God is always there.
How did you get published?
I have a degree in digital publishing from NYU. I worked as a published for several New York publishers so I knew a lot about the business. I published my book on Amazon using the knowledge from my education and what I picked up working in the publishing industry.
What have been your greatest literary accomplishments?
I have some several writing contests and that makes me happy. I won a plaque ad reward for a short story I wrote, My Cats Taught Me Love and Acceptance. I am looking to get on several best-selling lists.
