What inspired you to write your book?
This is a follow up to my first self-published book "Oh what a Night". I wanted to write more on the friendships and how the dynamics change when relationships form outside of those friendships.
When writing this book I just thought about the kind of friends I would surround myself with. Unique friends with strong personalities, that love and care for each other. I also wanted to portray a realistic healthy relationship, so that's how I thought of Destiny and Greggory the main characters.
Here is a short sample from the book:
This morning Destiny woke up to her favorite light roast coffee with French vanilla creamer, a cheese Danish, a bowl of fresh-cut strawberries and a fine man serving it to her. Destiny has been experiencing mornings like this for months. She never thought in her life, that she would see this type of treatment and enjoy it and not push back or run away from it, it was the best feeling Destiny thought. Being on the road with Greggory has grown into a grand love affair. Going from a good-looking Casanova that only took her to undercover spoken word/poetry lounges to a real man taking her to grand shows, stadium filled crowds and exclusive events across the United States giving her, his undivided attention. Greggory had a big lifestyle that was growing but had the mentality of a small farm boy that loved quiet moments by the fireplace. Destiny loved their 3 am conversations that went on for hours even after a show, when Greggory played his heart out and his lips were numb but talking to the woman that still to this day after their first meeting electrifies his soul was all he needed.
Months have passed, seasons have changed and now it is springtime. They are headed to another concert for Greggory, this time in Los Angeles, California at the Hollywood Bowl. One of the biggest locations Greggory has played to date and sold out within hours. Greggory had a talent that was breathe taking and everyone wanted a taste of it.
"Baby what shirt are you putting on with these pants?" Destiny shouts to Greggory in the bathroom, standing in the hallway.
Destiny often dresses Gregory when traveling on the road with him. She loves a well-dressed man and to dress her man is the icing on the cake. Greggory gets sheer enjoyment watching Destiny work her magic with his wardrobe and appreciates that she wants to be part of his music tour even if it's just picking out the right outfit. It has been eleven sensational months of dating and traveling with Gregory on his Love Notes U.S. Tour. Destiny has maintained her job as a caregiver nurse. She often works twenty-four-hour care for five days straight to be able to take five days off to travel with Greggory. She loves taking care of others and at one point in her life, she thought about opening a care center for the elderly. Greggory expressed to her she could quit her job and travel with him full time. He wanted a life with Destiny and for her to be happy. Destiny is an independent woman and although she would love to be by Greggory's side all the time she doesn't want to come off as a desperate chick or gold digger riding his coattails.
Coming out of the shower with only a towel draped around his waist, Greggory grabs Destiny from behind pushes her hair to the side and kisses her neck.
"Babe, how did I get so lucky? You have been by my side since that night you electrified my soul in Manhattan."
"Babe electrified your soul, wow really I did all that huh?"
"Yes, babe you did that."
"I love you to the moon and back baby," Destiny whispers in Greggory's ear.
Mille is calling. Greggory answers and puts the phone on speaker.
"Greggory you need to be at Tin Tine art gallery at 1 pm, and please don't be late."
"I will be there."
"Are you sure? Last time you and Destiny decided to take a wine tour and left fans and media waiting for an hour."
Destiny interjects, "Mille why are you bringing up old shit I apologized for that and he has been on track ever since."
"Just don't be late," the phone goes dead.
