Can you share one highlight from the book?
The highlight of the story is the black moment when the hero believes that everything is lost.
What is the purpose of this book?
The purpose of this book was simply to share a romantic story that was close to my heart. This story is loosely based on the lives of my parents. I wrote the story to honor them.
Are there themes that you find turn up again and again in your work? A common thread?
A common thread that appears in all my writing is that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The hero and the heroine must realize that they are meant for each other. They must travel the hero’s journey.
Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? Which part was the hardest?
The character that I enjoyed writing about the most is Mathias. His character is much like that of my father. He was a wonderful man full of charm, and charisma. My mom fell in love with his dimples. My daughter has dimples that remind me of my father. He lives on in my children.
The hardest part was reliving some of the stories that my parents shared with me. It made me miss them.
Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?
I also write poetry. I love vintage and African-inspired clothing, old pins, and funky eyewear.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
I have written and produced three community plays that have been performed at local theatres and colleges.
