Q & A

1.  What do you like to do in your free time?
Readers familiar with my books will probably have guessed that I love flowers.  In my free time, what little I have, you'll probably find me reading a book or working in my flower garden.  This year I expanded my flower beds and put in new ones. As a matter of fact, I have two flats of white and pink begonias waiting for me to plant.  I'm proud to say that in June we received Yard of The Month from our home-owners association.
2. What kind of music do you like to listen to? Why?
I like listening to country music, and it's not just because I'm from Texas.  The lyrics of country music often tell of love-gone-bad, but they also tell of love that lasts a lifetime.  The lyrics mirror the lives of the leading characters in my books who were 'done wrong', but through courage, determination and of course, love, they eventually find their happily-ever-after.
3.  What's your all time favorite movie? Why?
I'm not much of a movie person.  However, if I had to select one it would probably be Independence Day starring Will Smith.  I liked the movie because Will Smith showed intelligence, loyalty, and integrity. His character helped saved the world and he got the woman he loved...just like in a romance novel.
4.  What's your all time favorite novel and/or writer? Why?
I enjoy the writing of many writers and it's difficult to name just one all time favorite. A wonderful writer is J. California Cooper.  She has a unique way of depicting characters that touch our emotions.
5.  What do you like best about being a writer?
What I like most about being a writer is the ability to create my own universe where good guys triumph and bad guys are always punished.  It is also gratifying to show African-Americans as morally upright, productive, and responsible citizens.
