what is your name?
how would you describe what you do?
I strive to open the hearts and minds of my readers in a way that forces them to explore what they choose to ignore in their every day life.
what are you currently working on?
I am working on a short story for the 7DS Books as well as the second Beloved book, and hopefully a third short story set in the fictional future.
what has had the greatest influence on your work?
Good question… My heart as cliché as it sounds it’s true. The depths of emotion that I try so hard to normalize through suppression comes bleeding out in every page and line.
what is the greatest misconception about you or your work?
That my youth precedes any talent I have. My age and my perceived beauty feed into the prejudice that I have no authority over what I speak (or therefore write).
what do you see as the main strengths and weaknesses of the medium you work in?
Well as far as the vanity of a writer goes it is the allure of immortality through the written word. The downfall is that the past two generations have not been as captivated by literature with the increasing infection of modern technology.
how has technology impacted upon the work you do?
I wrote the beginning of Dreams of Poison (Beloved Series) on a tablet as well as having the painstaking obligation to put my writing in EPUB format. An upside though is that through the sensation of YouTube I have made book trailers and with Google I can be easily found with the right keywords.
what’s the greatest piece of advice you would like to pass on?
You can never have too much help. At the end of the day, you can’t do it all by yourself.
where can we find you online?
If you type in my name in Google you can find me. I’m on the social media networks, blogger, YouTube, book store sites, and Tumbler.
what are you reading at the moment?
In hardcover I’m reading Rachel Caine’s Bitter Blood, on audio book Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
what are you listening to at the moment?
Well, the Montell Jordan station on Pandora and Arabian and Indian music on cds.
anything else we should know?
I guess in the end, I strive to be acknowledged for more than just my literary work. I have my photography (Solange nicole Imaging), as well as my activism (Make A Change) and hopefully in the future people will come to appreciate my screen writing as well as acting and singing. I guess what I would like people to know is that I am ambitiously focused and there’s so much more to come.
