Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
So far I have published 2 books and a short story but I am working on so much more. I have over 20 years of story ideas and I am so excited to share it all.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is the special edition of a book I wrote called The One That Got Away. So many things inspire my stories. This particular story was inspired by life around me and the music I was listening to one morning. I have a playlist for every story and those songs remind me of the couple I am writing about.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I would say one of my most unusual habits is not writing in order. I write as the scenes come to me.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I am a huge fan of poetry from Maya Angelou to Lord Byron. I also am a huge Jodi Ellen Malpas fan and Gemma James.
What are you working on now?
So I am currently almost done with book one in a series I am working on called The Grown and Sexy Series. I really wanted to write some stories about women 35 and above. Book one “Happy Birthday Jules” is about a divorced mother who travels to Miami with her girlfriends to celebrate turning forty. While on vacation her friends dare her to kiss a handsome stranger. Needless to say there is an immediate chemistry and the story of their love begins.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Right now I primarily use facebook but I definitely am working on branching out.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
It’s dream fight for it! Authors are artist surround yourself with people who can takeover the heavy lifting because all you really want to do is write.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Live your truth.
What are you reading now?
The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas
What’s next for you as a writer?
I just did my first book signing event and I loved it. I thought I would be nervous and I was but I settled right in. So I will be doing more signings and adding to the Vazquez Vixens family, hopefully. I always say “I want Vixen World Domination”. So more merchandise and more books.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Ok I was recently asked this question so it’s not that hard. I am going to cheat a bit.
1) A notebook so I can keep writing my stories
2) The This Man Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas
3) The Wisdom of Sundays by Oprah
4) A compilation of Maya Angelou poetry
