What do you hope readers will take away from your story?
I hope readers can take away the true meaning of love, lust and enemies. Everything that seems too good to be true, usually is. My book will show you the dynamics of love in another light and deceit from the ones closest to you, which is a reflection of real life .
Describe your book in three words?
Vengeance, sex and lust.
Give us an interesting fun fact about your book?
Say you do started out as a short story that was simple and less interesting. One night while listening to Trey Songz “Song Goes Off”, somehow gave me the motivation to keep writing and before I knew it my short story turned into a book.
Which chapter in the book is your favorite and why?
My favorite chapter is Chapter 3 “Power in the P*ssy”. This chapter shows more of Nate’s gentle side, it allows you to see him and Shantel in a different light.
What is one thing you miss from your childhood?
I miss spending the summer at my grandparents house with all 12 of my cousins going swimming and playing sports. Just enjoying our childhood and each other’s company, before we all had to depart back to our hometown.
If someone made a movie about your life, what would be the title?
The title of my movie would be “She Slay”. A reflection of me as a woman overcoming some of life’s most difficult hurdles, such as amputation, job loss, heart breaks and deaths. Still allowing God to use me to show other women that just because life doesn’t flow the way we want it to doesn’t mean we have to stop living it. It just means we need to put our big girl panties on and slay the f**k out of it.
What must be seen or experienced in person to really appreciate it?
Childbirth. I do not have children of my own but after witnessing a friend of mine give birth. It was exhilarating to see how beautiful a woman’s body can transform and produce life. It’s incredibly emotional yet a breathtaking transformation.
When was the last time you had a strong gut feeling that turned out to be right?
Four years ago, I decided that I wanted to go back to school to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice. My job at the time wanted me to choose between furthering my education and employment. I followed my gut and chose school, I quit my job and enrolled full-time and I never looked back. I have received several grants and scholarships that have funded my education, since then I landed a job that is tailored to my needs and my profession. Always trust your gut.
What place have you been to that you think everyone should visit at least once in their lives?
I am a new traveler and recently I visited Freeport, Bahamas which was beautiful and exhilarating. I would recommend that everyone visit a tropical place that can stimulate their minds and allow them to reset emotionally and mentally.
