Peace! I’ve been absent for a few weeks. Sorry about that. I’m doing good, just trying to downsize, and I’m living in more chaos than usual. I’ve been thinking about you though, and I’m sorry I left you hanging. Truthfully, I’m trying to finish this darn book, and it’s sooo hard to let go of! … Continue reading He really understands me…I’m in. All in.
I usually don’t like it when a man won’t take no for an answer. It’s okay in books, but in real life, it’s like give up already. If a woman musters up the courage to give you a straight no, listen. Move on. There’s too many fish in the sea, you know? But in this … Continue reading Sometimes you don’t want him to take no for an answer
One of the wonderful things about romantic fiction is that you can create the kind of relationship you want, the kind you’ve always dreamed of. In the case of Tan and Sinna, a mature one, filled with honesty. In this tale, almost all of the tension originates from outside sources. Not that they don’t have … Continue reading We can’t marry because of…Yes, we can. It’s not an issue
Do you ever stop and think, damn. My shit’s out of order. Like, I need to get my routine together and stick to it. When I do that, I’m frickin’ gold! Right now? Yo. You see I forgot to blog last week, right? Just triflin’! Sorry about that. But I’m workin’ on it. I feel … Continue reading You ever hear your man say something so fabulous you just want to eat him?
I love side characters. They’re like the supporting characters in movies or TV shows. They’re colorful, they make things interesting, and they’re wonderful tools to advance a story forward — or they should be. In this blog, which picks up where last week’s left off, I offer more from Sinna’s visit from Lani and Tommy. You may recall they were participating in her first appearance on a South Korean talk show, and it was going very well. LOL Continue reading “Side characters make the world go ’round — and make a story soooo good”
I’ve always written about families of characters. Meaning, from one of my books to the next, you will see the some of the same supporting characters. I enjoy the continuity, and if I’m honest, I have a tendency to fall in love — or very serious like — with my characters, and I can’t bear for them to be relegated to just one story. Continue reading “When your girls are just as bad ass as you, and everyone in the world knows it”
I have an old friend, one of my oldest friends, actually, and he loves when I tell him stories from my books. He says they feel familiar, like he’s seen it in a movie, and he always shouts out the next part: “He died!” No, fool, I laughed recently. “Few people die in my books.” Though I do have some things planned… Continue reading “You take the bad with the good, but you should always push it aside for love”
It’s true. When you’re really good at your job, people want more and more and more. That can be a curse and a blessing. It’s a blessing because you have more opportunities. It’s a curse because there’s more pressure, more responsibility, and potentially more danger to screw everything up. Continue reading “When you’re that good, everyone wants a piece”
I love side characters. I love them so much, I have side characters who’ve made an appearance in more than one of my books. It’ not hard, since I tend to write about families or groups of friends, each person getting their own story. For me, side characters are integral to the story. It’s like … Continue reading The rise of the side character – the people you want to steal the narrative scene
When you’ve been out of the love game for a while, it can be tough to believe its real. You want to believe, all of the evidence could point to the truth, but your mind will hold off. Sometimes all you need is a little truth telling from your besties to clarify that yes, this … Continue reading Behind the scenes is the best place to make love moves
