You can find the full article here!


Q1. Who is your favourite author?

That is a hard one because I can never pick just one.

If we’re doing an all type favourite, N.K. Jemisin. But other options; Tracey Deon, author of Legendborn- I will read anything Tracey puts out because her stories are so phenomenal. Daniel Jose Older just had Ballad and Dagger, and it’s sequel come out. Daniel is another author that every fantasy story that he puts out is an autobuy.

Q2. What’s your favourite meal/food?

Fried shrimp. Fried crab. If you give me fried seafood that is my kryptonite.

Q3. What’s one country you’ve always wanted to visit?

I have always wanted to visit Ghana. My great grandfather grew up in Ghana and I have always wanted to go because everything I’ve heard and researched look like the most gorgeous country.

My best friend and her husband go yearly, and I just keep missing the mark. One year I was pregnant, the next year I had work commitments, and it never aligns to when I can hop on that trip!

But I am commited to getting their next year!

Q4. Star sign?


Q5. What was the first book you ever wrote?

It was a paranormal romance with a vampire and a huntress. I mean loved it, but I can definitely look back and see like the weaker craft skills and how that was probably my first crack at it.

Q6. Dogs or cats?


Q7. What’s the best thing about Texas?

The best thing is my entire family on my mom’s side is here. So family is number one! Number two, I’m in Houston so we have this Creole, Cajun, Louisiana food cuisine mixture going on here.

So the seafood is the number two best thing here!

Q8. Your favourite artist is…

Right now? Megan Thee Stallion

Q9. You are allergic to…

That is a hard one. Seriously? Pollen, but whose not allergic to pollen. I go outside and I really start sneezing, my eyes are watering and I’m a whole mess. But on a silly note, I am allergic to the rain.

I hate the rain. When it’s raining, I’m staying inside the house, I am not going outdoors.

Q10. Favourite season?

I have two and for two different reasons. I love the summer time because I love the beach – it is my happy place. Texas is hot like 100 degrees hot, but I love the beach. But I also really love skiing and the mountains so I really love the winter season too.
