My latest novel, “Crossroads” is part three 3 in a series but can also be read as a stand alone book. In this book, my character, Amaryllis Price, is a bad girl turned good. Once a relationship destroyer and professional husband stealer, Amaryllis, has turned her life around. She’s made a vow to live right and walk the straight and narrow. But Amaryllis finds herself at a crossroads when her past catches up with her. She could never resist Charles Walker, and when he reappears in her life, he’s even hotter and sexier than Amaryllis remembered. But can she remain celibate?
I challenged myself with “Crossroads” because my character is so different in this book than she was in the two previous novels, “A Man’s Worth” and “Amaryllis”. My readers really took to Amaryllis and enjoyed reading about her devious and scandalous ways. She is a product of her environment, being raised on the south side of Chicago by a mother who enjoyed the finer things in life but paid for them with drug money. From a very young age, Amaryllis was taught and trained how to seduce men for money. So, for me, turning her character around for the good was quite difficult. “Crossroads” is comical and readers are entertained as Amaryllis strives to put her best foot forward in life.
I have just completed the draft of my next book release, “Lady Elect”, which is the follow-up to my novel, “A Woman’s Worth”. “Lady Elect” will release in June, 2012, and I am excited for readers to see my fun and loving character, Arykah Miles, overcome the struggles of dealing with a church that won’t accept her as their pastor’s wife.
