Q & A with Dee Dee M. Scott
A&RBC: How did you become a writer?
Dee Dee: I have been writing since the age of six. It was something I always did. By the time I was a teenager, I was writing poetry and performing in front of audiences. I wrote my first book after my husband brought me a computer to stop me from taking up space in our closets with the notebooks of stories that I had hand written.
A&RBC: What are you hoping readers take from your book?
Dee Dee: That my book is more than just a story about an affair. This story shows the psychological and physical effects one man’s affair has on his wife, mistress, friend, and everyone else involved in his life.
A&RBC: If you were to write a book about a controversial topic, what would it be?
