Author Interview

1. What inspired you to become a Multicultural, IR or BWWM Romance writer?

I write those types of books, along with others outside of the category, because writing is my passion. It's why I wake up in the morning. It's what gives me joy and drive, and it's a duty to myself as well as the higher calling, to follow your deep passions.

2. Besides writing, what are some of your favorite things?

I love movies and television shows. To me it's writing on a different medium and I LOVE that.

3. What types or genre of books do you enjoy reading? What are you currently reading?

I enjoy reading all types of books. It's definitely a story line idea that grabs me more than a specific genre. At the moment I'm reading a fun spiritual book “Thank and Grow Rich” and working my way through “Girl on The Train”.

4. Are you working on anything new? If so, when can we expect it to be released?

Always, lol. My next book does not have a confirmed release date yet but I would guestimate towards the end of October.

5. Do you have any scheduled upcoming events; such as book signings, interviews, etc.?

I have a book signing in Toledo, Ohio, Oct 8th!

6. Where do you expect to be in your career as an author five (5) years from now?

Still writing. Still waking up every day pleased and joyful I get to deliver stories to people willing to listen. As far as HOPE where I'll be, maybe a Netflix original or a movie? Lol. Never stop dreaming...

7. What advice can you give to new authors who’s interested in writing in this genre?

Know the reason WHY you write and remember it. LIVE it. And BELIEVE in it. Many things come and go but your drive for what you do will always be what makes the stormy days worth it.

Special message from Xavier to you …
Hey! Thank you for looking into me, reading me, and swinging by! I hope you find something by me that makes you fall in love with reading all over again.

Book Excerpt ~ Prince Hunter

Mirth fills his eyes. “A woman who's not afraid of a good hunk of meat?”

I wet my lips seductively. “Obviously...”

Hunter swallows another animalistic sound and declares, “Steak it is. Any other requests?”

Remembering the excitement from our first time together, I add, “Rope. Next time you get an orgasm out of me, I want there to be rope.”
