Where did you get your love of books/storytelling/reading/writing/etc come from?


CL: My best friend brought Zane’s Addicted to school one day in high school. I read it and loved it. From there, I fell in love with urban fiction and found myself reading any book that came from the genre.


Any author(s) that you feel influenced your writing?


CL: I love Danielle Santiago, Keisha Ervin, Takerra Allen, and Tracy Brown have all had a huge influence in my writing. Especially Danielle.


Name 3 authors you'd like to collaborate with?


CL: Hmm... that’s a hard one. The one person that comes to mind is Dominique Thomas. I would have to think of the others.


What are your top 3 favorite books of all time?

CL: Torn Keisha Ervin, G Spot Noire, Heaven’s Hell Takerra Allen.


How do you research for your books?


CL: Google and YouTube has saved my writing life ☺️


What is your work schedule like when you're writing?


CL: I love writing during the day, so I can have my evenings to myself. Surprisingly, my words do not flow at night 🥴
