Interviewing Natisha Raynor

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

NR: I became an avid reader in elementary school, and I loved books like The Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High. As I got a little older, I started listening to rap music and watching movies like House Party, Boyz n Da Hood, etc. and the books I was reading no longer resonated with  me, so I began writing my own stories.

Any author(s) that you'd like to collaborate with?

NRI'm not sure who I'd like to collab with simply because I feel like two authors have to mesh really well for a collab to flow, and the people that I like may have different writing styles from me, if that makes sense. I did enjoy the collabs that I did with Miss Candice and Azayler.

Can you give us your favorite author(s)?

NRMy favorite authors are Mary Monroe, Desiree, Jai Bree'nae, Lisa Austin.

How do you research for your books?

NR I just google anything that I'm curious about. Certain professions and how long it takes to get a degree, or certain medical conditions, anything I want to write about that I don't know about, I just go to google and take notes, lol.

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

NRMy structure is trash when I'm writing, lol. I have none. My goal used to be 5k a day and I would type 1,000-1,500 words take a three hour break then get back at it, which makes no sense, because it takes all day to complete a simple goal that way. When my mental state is better, and I'm back working full time, my goal is structure.

Is there a genre you haven't tried but would like to?

NRI would like to try a psychological thriller.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

NRI'd tell my younger writing self, learn as much as you can. Don't think you can't do something. Stick with it and keep working to perfect it, so when you take off, you will be in a great space and you'll be knowledgeable, so you won't have to learn so many things the hard way.

Which one of your books is your favorite?

NRMy favorite book by me is probably, How the Baptiste Boys Took Over North Carolina.

Where can readers find out more about you & your work?

NRReaders can follow my author page on Amazon for releases and updates.
