Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I was inspired by my small hometown and cultural background. I grew up in Immokalee Florida. It is a small migrant community outside of Naples Florida. Immokalee is a town full of diverse cultures and hidden treasures. My Haitian and French background played a significant role in the development of the story and characters.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
The story was in the works for over two years. I had to juggle being a mom, wife, employee, full time Mater’s student and writing. I finally dug in and finished this year. Honestly the idea of finally giving my work to the world was terrifying.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love losing myself in the world I create. It is a world without maps and I am the only one who knows the destination of the story.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
It breaks my heart when the story I am writing ends. The endings are always very hard for me.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
I would be Oprah. I would have enough money to write full time and still provide for my family.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
The oldest thing in my fridge is a 5-month-old box of Magnum ice cream. Technically it is being held in suspended animation in my freezer. I refuse to throw good ice cream away. Besides I will eat it when my first not nice review rolls in.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
Beacon of Sound is part of a five-book series for now. Beacon Holiday is a novella that will give a little more information about the Beacons and tie into the next full novel. The Novella is due out this December and Foster of Dark book two of The Noir Dera will be out in the spring of 2015.
I am aiming to publish Hearts Unbound by December of this year. It is a story about reclaiming love when it is tragically ripped from you. Ramon Sifuentes and Sophia Griffin take an emotional journey in hopes of reclaiming love. The help of nosey friends, family members, and a ghost lead to some hilarious and heartwarming moments.
