Do you have another profession besides writing? I am actually a full-time teacher in New York City.
How long have you been writing? I have been writing since I was a little girl but I started seriously writing ten years ago.
Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it? I get writer’s block from time to time but when that happens, I take a break and I work on something else or do something that has nothing to do with writing, so I can clear my mind and relax.
What is your next project? I am actually working on a book that features a little girl and her dreams. I am all about girl power. I think girls and women are phenomenal and we can do anything we out our minds to, so I wanted to have something for young girls to relate to and be inspired by.
What genre do you write and why? I like right fiction because it allows me to explore my imagination. A fun fact is started off with writing poetry in school because I was inspired my Langston Hughes. His words gave me comfort and I wanted to do that, but somehow I began creating full lengths stories in my head, so I ran with the idea.
What is the last great book you’ve read? The last great book I ever read was TRUST by Iyanla Vanzant
