My Writing Style

No comments

The first 2 books I ever wrote were romance novels. I have only published one of them and I’m not sure if I intend to write any more. Why? Because I have become so uninterested in reading them myself. I think that they give women the wrong ideas about what real men are like and how they will treat women. I guess it is a huge reflection on my own love life. There is nothing wrong with romance novels and I think they are great for women who want to escape. I guess I’ve just become disillusioned about love. My most recent work has been very dark such as the current book I am writing. “Spirit Walk.” This book is a paranormal story for young adults. And unlike the character of Ashley James in A Woman Of Courage, the main character is named Allison Roberts and she is white. I also have a vampire novel called “The Awakening that I wrote a few years ago that I want to publish soon. After I finish “Spirit Walk” I will be working on another vampire novel called “The Human.” I love vampire stories and ghost stories. My favorite TV shows are Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. When I was a little girl I loved The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Mysteries but I had never read the books because I didn’t know about them at the time. I love supernatural stories, films etc. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I am fascinated by things that are hard to explain. Funny because I was terrified of movies like The Exorcist and Beyond The Door when I was a kid. But those books/films were not for children anyway. I was also fascinated with the movie Psycho. Not because I love slasher movies, I hate those with the exception of The Nightmare On Elm street franchise which I loved. It’s because I was very intrigued by the main character of Norman Bates and for those who haven’t seen this film, I will not say too much about the plot, but his relationship with his mother before and after the big reveal is pure genius. I am so lucky to have grown up during a time when people were their most creative. As far as my writing style goes, I do not consider myself a black writer. I just consider myself a writer. My main characters are mostly white but some are also black. I can relate to both races very well even though I am black. I really wasn’t sure if I wanted to reveal my race to the public. Why? Because I don’t want anyone to have any preconceived notions about me and what I am like as a person or as a writer. I am not just a color. I am first and foremost a human being. My writing will reflect the lives of all races that I am most familiar with. I hope you get to read my future works. I am writing because I love it. Sometimes I hate it because it’s hard work and very time consuming but I honestly love it. And just when I say to myself “I am never writing again” I always wind up coming up with another idea for a book, poem or script for a film or for television. I have a TV pilot that I have written and I would like for you all to see it someday. I wrote it for the CW network but I haven’t tried to show it to them yet. I haven’t shown it to anyone. Maybe that will change. We’ll see how things go. Love you guys. Until next time…
