Where did you get your love of books/storytelling/reading/writing/etc come from?
SBS: I can’t pinpoint it since it’s been a part of my life for so long now, but I’m pretty sure I picked up my love of storytelling from my daddy who told stories in a way that made people gather around to listen. My love for reading spurred from that and writing came as naturally as speaking since I was about six years old.
Any author(s) that you feel influenced your writing?
SBS: I’ve always idolized Toni Morrison, Terri McMillan, and Maya Angelou. The way they captured their experiences as black women and delivered them to us was so raw and real and witty. I could go on and on!
What inspires you?
What are your top 3 favorite books of all time?
SBS: The Color Purple three times.
How do you research for your books?
SBS: Lord, this question is triggering! Lol. Depending on the character, their career or background, some of my research requires interviewing actual people or reflecting on experiences. But most of the time, I deep dive into Google for documentaries and articles. And since it’s no secret that my characters be fuckin’, I sometimes visit pornhub for inspiration...
What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
SBS: Strained AF!!!
If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
