Hi Pamela, thank you for agreeing to this interview. 

What are your ambitions for your writing career?

It is my goal to break into traditional publishing. I would love to see my work published by Simon and Schuster!

Which writers inspire you?

Terry McMillan, Danielle Steele, Alice Walker, and Jackie Collins. These are all successful women in publishing. It’s also inspiring to see indie authors making their publishing dreams come true.

So, what have you written?

I’ve written a short eBook entitled “Tomorrow Never Comes.”

What are you working on at the minute?

I’m working on another eBook. It’s called “Her Married Lover.”

What’s it about?

Regina Matthews is an independent, single mother who falls in love with Cole Carter.

This is sinfully wrong for one reason: he’s married.

Whereas she knows he’s married, Cole’s wife, Lisa, is unaware of their love affair. She’s too preoccupied with grief regarding her three miscarriages.

While she’s worrying about her ability to have a baby, things are heating up between Cole and Regina.

When Lisa discovers their affair, tension erupts; thus, forcing her to fight for her marriage. Despite her efforts, however, Cole makes an announcement that will change her life forever.

This announcement leads to hell breaking loose. As a result of its wrath, Regina learns the consequences of infidelity, as well as a startling discovery about her married lover.

What genre are your books?

Women’s fiction

What draws you to this genre?

I’ve always liked strong female characters. So, to be able to create them is empowering and fun!

Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?

Viola Davis from “The Help.” As a talented actress, she can provide the strength and courage necessary to play this character to the fullest.

When did you decide to become a writer?

Why do you write?

I write for three number reasons: 1) it’s my true calling, and I believe in fulfilling my calling 2)I love it 3)it keeps me out of the unemployment line

For your own reading, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper/hard back books?

I’m fine with any of these. My only concern is that the story is good.

What book/s are you reading at present?

“Pie Girls” by indie author Lauren Clark. It’s really great.

How do you market your books?

I market my eBooks in various ways: social media, blog interviews, and free promotions. I’m looking to expand my marketing methods with internet radio interviews.

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?

Good reviews are good. It shows that you’ve done a good job as a writer. Bad reviews, however, can be painful. It makes you feel like you’re not a good writer  – if you’re not strong enough to handle criticism.

When it comes to bad reviews, you can’t take it to heart. If you do, then you can’t move on with your publishing career. Then there’s another layer to the bad review: is it the truth? Is your story its best? These are questions only the writer can answer, and he or she must answer them honestly. Because in the end, the truth will not only set you free, but make you a better writer.

In what formats is your book available?

In eBook.

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

If you have a book within you, do yourself a favor and write it. The worst thing a writer is not write their story.

How can readers discover more about you and you work?
