When did you start writing, and what did you write about?
I fell in love with writing when I was about 12 or 13. I started out writing poetry and short stories. You know, those little girly sonnets of love and pain, Lol. I've always loved songwriting, too.
I published my first book in January of last year. It's the prequel to my newest novel titled Toxic. They tell the story of a young mother who is fighting for her life against her tyrannical boyfriend. The two are literally trying to kill each other. I've been in some abusive situations in my life and I used that as the inspiration behind the stories. I wanted to write a suspense story full of drama.
What are you writing about now and why are you writing this book?
After Toxic comes a novel called Beautiful Liar. It's an urban murder mystery about a drug addict who is brutally murdered and her daughter is desperate to find the killer. I've been working on the story for almost four years and I'm finally finishing it. The writing in this book pays homage to my favorite authors, R.L. Stine and Donald Goines.

What hobby or activity do you enjoy other than writing? –One of my favorite t-shirts has a design of a cassette tape with the words "Music Feeds My Soul". Those words describe me perfectly. I love to listen to music and write songs. My passion is the business side of it. I like to be behind the scenes interviewing artists and helping with shows. I interned for the Ohio Hip Hop Awards for five years and continue to support them by writing for their blog.
