With Party Girl, I hope to help raise awareness about the Death Penalty and how much it impacts those of us in the Black and Brown communities. I also hope to entertain readers with a topic that’s very important.
If you were to write a book about a controversial topic, what would it be?
Most of my stories focus on or around social issues. Because I tend to highlight a law that seems unfair or an issue that many people are passionate about, controversy is part of the package for me in my work.
Most writers have a process or method for writing their books, what is yours?
What is your favorite genre of books?
I love contemporary fiction, but I read a wide variety from literature, to street fiction.
Are you an avid or occasional reader?
I read about two books a week.
What are two things you want your readers to know about you?
I am a very passionate person. I am in love with the written word, and I am always working hard to get you to want to pick up my next book. I appreciate my readers so much that I try to make sure I’m always giving you my very best.
If you could interview one of your favorite authors, who would it be? Why?
Since I interview people for a living, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing most of my favorite authors as well as many new and upcoming authors. I’m a people person and I enjoy talking to people.
My dream job is exactly what I’m doing. From a very young age, I wanted to be a reporter and a writer; I’m so thrilled to be one of the people truly living my dream!

Innocence in question…Twenty-nine-year-old Hope Donovan never pulled the trigger… But a simple choice landed her behind bars, and on Texas’ Death Row. Hope accepted a ride from two neighborhood thugs. She was stunned when they were pulled over and all were arrested for a deadly convenience store robbery. Her case was quickly catapulted to an international platform and became a symbol in the heated debate over capital punishment. Everyone weighed in, but when mistakes from her past were dug up, the world was suddenly riveted and confused by two conflicting images of the young mother.
How long would you wait? Brendon Donovan stood by his wife after her arrest. He took out a second mortgage on their house and wiped out the family’s savings. But as Hope’s case dragged on, he was forced to consider other options.
How far would you go? Chastity and Hope have shared a tumultuous past. But their rivalry took a backseat when it came time to care for Hope’s children. Years later, as Hope’s chances of survival began to look grim, Chastity was torn. The feelings she developed for Hope’s husband, Brendon, threw her loyalty and motives into question.
