Tell us about your book, One Ain’t Enough.
One Ain’t Enough (OAE) is a tale about Desiree Edwards, a woman who finds herself torn between not one nor two, but three men – each has a grip on her way of living. Derrik captures Desiree’s heart, but she has to be discreet because she is married to Jamal, a handsome doctor who needs discretion of his own. He is in a love triangle that does not include Desiree.
Her life becomes complicated when Desiree runs into her former lover, Troy Harris. The confidence she built of being over him no longer exists, when he reminds her that her heart, and body still belongs to him.
Why did you decide to write it?
I’ve been inspired by soap operas, television drama series, as well as the late E. Lynn Harris’ novels. OAE was a burning idea I had for some time. Once I thought of them, these characters wanted their story to be told. I finally committed to the craft and penned a full-length manuscript.
What’s the best part of being an author?
Coming up with unforgettable characters and creating memorable stories that readers can relate to. I get to tell believable lies and leave my readers wondering if these situations really happened.
What’s the worst part of being an author?
Being my own worst critic. In turn, feeling like my work isn’t good enough that my readers will enjoy it.
Who is your favorite character in the book, and why?
Troy, because he’s one of the hardest characters I’ve had to write due to his complex nature. He’s the alpha male in this book. He’s arrogant, abusive and narcissistic – everything negative. I’ve had to go to some dark places in order to write for him. I can say he’s misunderstood and seen as unforgiveable for the things he’s done. He has a backstory my readers will soon learn about and I feel it makes him redeemable. Although, he’s the most disliked character of them all, I’ve enjoyed developing him.
What was the hardest part of writing the story?
Ending it. I never wanted this story to have one. Honestly, it doesn’t. This book ends on a cliffhanger.
If you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
The Bounce Back Kid; no matter what I’ve been through so far in this thing called life, I’ve found a way to bounce back from it all.
What is something readers would be surprised to know about you?
I love thrilling, daring activities. I’ve gone skydiving.
What are you currently working on right now?
One is Enough – book three of the One Ain’t Enough Series
Do you have anything else you would like to add?I’m excited to get back out here to my readers. It’s been a long time coming. I’m truly grateful for their unwavering support and encouragement for more than a decade. From the bottom of my heart, I love you all, thank you!
Quotes and taglines from the book
“Are you sure, Desi? We do this, there’s no turning back.” She looked into his eyes and thought about what she was getting herself into. “I’m sure.”
“The right man is going to find you one day. He’s going to treat you the way you’re supposed to be treated. I promise you.”
One thing was for sure as he looked down at the woman of his dreams walking next to him: he wanted her now more than ever, and nothing was going to stop him this time. Not even the friendship with his boy.
