I am Nesha aka Ladii Nesha and I have been writing since my late teen years, but two years ago I published my very first book Indie novel; Envy Me. I currently have thirteen books available on Amazon and that number is steadily growing.
Besides writing, I am a mother of an extremely active nine-year-old and a full-time accountant for a hotel. I love to collect journals and clothes that I don't intend to wear, but the deal was too good to pass up. Since becoming an author, I'm stepping outside of my shell because I've made some dope connections by putting myself out there. I also love reading!
Urban Fiction to me is a totally different world. I remember reading books for hours and being lost in their world. The drama, the action, and the love was exciting. For me to be able to contribute to that world is simply a blessing. I believe it takes talent to paint a scene with words and make someone fall in love with a fictional character or even hate another. I'm still at the beginning of my journey and I can't wait to see where this ride takes me.
1. What is the most difficult part of your writing process?
The most challenging part of my writing process would have to be filling in the plot holes and closing them. I drive myself crazy reading and rewriting to ensure everything comes together nicely. I'm a reader first; if I can find holes, my readers can too.
2. What comes first for you… the plot or the characters? Why?
The plot comes to me first and then I start to develop the characters and they change the plot. The characters are always in control and I'm just listening to their story and writing it.
3. How many books have you written and which is your favorite?
I have thirteen published books. My favorite thus far is We Could've Been. I feel like I pushed myself to the limits with this book. I took an ugly topic and made it come alive. Domestic violence is always hard to read about, but I think I did a great job balancing it out.
4. If you could meet your characters what would you say to them?
If I could meet my characters, I'd ask them why are they so crazy. lol. Honesty, I'm pretty sure I have met them in some shape or form. The unconscious mind is a powerful thing and even though I might not have a person in mind at the time, they always remind me of someone I know.
