It’s My Anniversary :-)

Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a great day so far.

Wow, I can’t believe it has been seven years since I published my very first book, In Love With My Best Friend. At that time, I wasn’t thinking about having a career as an author; I just wanted to fulfill my goal by releasing a book. Little did I know, that one book turned into several series, and forty two books total. I had some ups and downs in my career, but nevertheless, I don’t regret what I have went through to get to where I am right now.

To the readers who have stuck by me since the very beginning, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for giving me a chance to share my stories and to let me be myself. Although some of my stories were a bit off the wall, I’m still grateful and blessed that you all continued to support me.

As I continue my journey, I just hope that I can continue to write stories that readers can enjoy, because I still have a lot in me to share.

Again, thank you. 🙂

To celebrate, I decided to do a few giveaways on several platforms, including on my blog. For this giveaway, one lucky winner will be winning signed copies of the entire Love, Life, & Happiness series as well as a $10 gift card from Amazon.

Redemption Is Coming April 30!!!

Here it is:

I also haven’t done my “Things You Should Know” post in awhile, so I’m bringing it back. Here are 6 spoilers you should know about the story:


1. Time Frame: As you may know, this will pick up where Love Always left off. Since the last scene was done a year later from the previous story, it will be around the year 2017 (this will also be the same for Kevin’s story as well).

2. Flashbacks: There will be a lot of flashbacks in this story that will tell Nathan’s version to what happened in the most important scenes in the LLH series. From the first time him and Riana were intimate to the fight he got in with Jayden, he will tell his side to how things really happened. As the saying goes, there’re always two sides to every story.

3. Grandma Hattie: She will play a very important role in Nathan’s story. It will also show a side of his parents that even Nathan didn’t know exist.

4. Rachel: Nathan and Rachel met while attending Texas Tech and were only together because of Shawn and Riana. Now, the two are trying to establish a relationship. With the issues Nathan has with his parents and the guilt he has about Riana, can the two be together or will it tear them apart?

5. Riana: Nathan still feels guilty with everything that has happened to Riana. Does he still have feelings for her even though she’s married?

6. The Walker Men: I missed Shawn and Marcus. You all know the scenes Nathan and Shawn will have based from the excerpt that I previously released on here as well as on my Facebook page. Of course Shawn will have his issues with Nathan, but will actually have a change of heart about him later in the story.

Find out what really happen with Nathan and the rest of the crew when Redemption, the final book in the LLH series is available on April 30th!! I will post the links once they go live! 🙂

Love, Life, & Happiness News!!!

Hi everyone!!! It has been a while since I’d posted, but I have been hard at work on three stories, so I took a little break from my blog. But not to worry, because I will be posting a little bit more now that I’m done with not only SJAR 3,  but also Redemption, and the first story in the LLH spin-off.

With SJAR 3, I still do not have an official word on a release date or the book cover, but once I do, I will be sure to share it with you all.

As for Redemption, I do have a release date, which will be April 30th. It will be available on all major sites.  I have a little teaser from the story:



Check back here for the cover reveal, which will be soon.

As for the LLH spin-off, I already completed book 1, but it will probably be released in the next few months since SJAR3 has not been released. I’m so excited to share this book with you all because even though it’s a spin-off from Love, Life, & Happiness, Kevin’s story will be so different from everyone else’s. By the end of the first book, you’re going to be in shock over everything that has happened between him, Jennifer, and Carla.

To get you all ready for this series, I already completed a dream cast of who I believe are the best fit for each of these characters.  All the characters from the LLH series will not be in this series, but will be mention.  Take a look at the collage below:



Kevin Thompson- Charles Michael Davis

Jennifer Thompson- Tiffany Hines

Carla Windsor- Angell Conwell

Chad Winfield (Jennifer’s co-worker)- Brad James

Cheryl Thompson-Walker- Alexandra Shipp

Elise Thompson- Shannon Kaye

Marcus Walker- Jay Ellis

Shawn Walker- Trey Songz

Riana Walker- Keisha Chante

Jayden Robertson- Jessie T. Usher

Patricia Harris (Jennifer’s sister)- Meta Golding

Daphne Harris (Jennifer’s mother)- Valerie Pettiford

Shanice Atkins (Jennifer’s best friend)- Taja V. Simpson

Jared Morris (Kevin’s best friend/Elise’s boyfriend) – Hosea Chanchez

Calvin DuBose (Carla’s ex) – Damien Dante Wayans

Alicia Moore (Kevin’s assistant) – LeToya Luckett

Robert Thompson- James Pickens Jr.

Thomas Thompson- Demarr Calhoun

Kristina Windsor- Shai Jackson


To get a better look of each character, I will be creating a board on Pinterest soon. This story is coming soon, so check back here for the official release date and cover reveal. 🙂



Something Just Ain’t Right 3 News & New Series!!!


Hi everyone! It has been a while since I posted a new entry, but I have been busy with finishing Something Just Ain’t Right 3 and preparing for Redemption to be released.


 Here are a couple of things that I have been working on:      

Something Just Ain’t Right 3

If you have been keeping up with the Something Just Ain’t Right series, you would know that there have been a couple of OMG moments, but with SJAR3, there will be even more that will have your mouth hanging open!! You will never guess who is the mastermind behind destroying Morgan and Hayley (and trust me, it’s a doozy!). But despite the issues, Hayley and Morgan will have their HEA. They deserve it so much, so you all will love the ending.  A release date has not been set yet, so stay tuned to find out that along with the cover reveal for the final book in the series.


Love, Life, & Happiness 

Are you ready to revisit the LLH crew? Well, it won’t be long before you get updates on everyone with the sixth and final story in the series, Redemption.  As everyone knows, this story was supposed to been released before SJAR began, but things happened, preventing the book from being released. Now that the third book will be released, I can now publish Redemption! I can’t wait for you all to read this book. Since this is Nathan’s story, it will show his POV on many of the situations that were presented throughout the LLH series.  A release date has not been made yet, but it will be available once SJAR3 is released.

Kevin’s Story 

This week, I started working on my next series, which is the spin-off to Love, Life, & Happiness. Kevin’s story will be very different from the LLH series. Yes, it will still have the romance that the series is known for, but there will be several situations going on- from Kevin’s issues with his marriage to Jennifer, to the issues he will soon have with his college’s best friend Carla.

In case you have forgotten about the blurb for the series, here it is:

Kevin Thompson always lived life straight by the book. He got a great job, married his college sweetheart, and has a wonderful son. But lately, Kevin’s life hasn’t been a page out of a fairy tale. He feels as if he’s stuck in a rut and his marriage to Jennifer is slowly falling apart. To make matters even more complicated, he unexpectedly runs into his college best friend, Carla Windsor, who was also friends with Jennifer. When a huge secret is exposed between the two, will it destroy everything Kevin has worked hard for or will he see this as his way out of the life he once cherished? 

 The original title for Kevin’s story is Love & War, but since this series may be going through my publisher, the title may be changed.  And trust me, this series will not be changed. It will still have every character from the LLH series. 🙂  I’m so excited to be writing this series because not only do I get to revisit the LLH crew, but I have a lot of great ideas to write, so stay tuned! 

Also, congrats to Janie McGaugh, who was the winner of the Lucky is Reading Blog Hop Giveaway! I really hope you’re enjoying your book! 🙂      

Our Love is FREE!!!!


Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday so far! To celebrate the re-release of Our Love, for one week only, it will be for FREE on Amazon!! The new version is newly edited and contains an excerpt from Redemption, the sixth and final book in the Love, Life, & Happiness series.

1-Click this great book before it’s goes back to regular price this weekend! 🙂

Charlie Perry is faced with a huge dilemma. After having an altercation with a classmate, she is given an ultimatum- transfer schools or face criminal charges. When Charlie is left with no choice but to transfer, she steps into Belmont High not knowing what to expect, especially when she crosses paths with Michael Collier.

Michael Collier is the most popular guy at Belmont. He can practically have any girl he wants, but when he sets his brown eyes on Charlie, he is instantly hooked, wanting to know more about the honey-colored beauty.

But when secrets from each other’s pasts begin to surface, will the two be able to find their way to each other, or keep them apart for good.

(This book is considered mature YA/NA and contains mature subject matter, including mild violence, alcohol use, and sexual language/situations).
