-What is your genre? What draws you to this genre?

My genre has always been romance suspense /intrigue

Since I was twelve and I saw a Fabio Cover I’ve been in love with romance but living in Detroit, I was constantly indulged with violence. Without giving up hope for a happily ever after, I was determined to find true love for two people in a difficult violent dramatic world all the while weaving some eroticism and ecstasy around their story. I’m drawn to intrigue like a moth to a flame and writing stories in this genre gives me hope that happily ever afters for everyone can come true.

-What is your purpose?

My purpose in this world is to be an asset and not a liability.

My purpose as a woman is to be a master of gender.

My purpose as a mother is to be the best that I can be.

My purpose as Sylvia is to be successfully happy.

-Who has influenced your life as an author?

No doubt it’s been Beverly Jenkins who gave me hope that I could write the stories I wanted to read. Following that it’s been my mother who believed in me before I believed in me.

-What is your favorite marketing technique? How do you get your book in front of readers?

Blogging has been one of my favorites because I get lifetime repeated lifetime readers. I blog a lot to increase my reader fellowship and connect with my readers. This also includes mini-blogging on social media. It may include short talks about my literary life, how a character came to life, or flash fiction to entice the reader to subscribe to my website or connect with me on social media.

-What is something you want readers to know about you?

I’m bad on paper so I can be good in life. As outwardly as it seems that I am in my books, I’m really an introvert.
