Meet the Authors behind Sugar Mama: A Keilanii Jennings Saga

Collaborations are an amazing way to combine talents and elevate your brand. That is the case for two powerhouse women who wanted to bring to life the fictional story of Keilanii Jennings. In reading an excerpt from the book I am immediately drawn in and excited to read more. The saga has twists and turns, action and most of all drama. I had the opportunity to chat with the authors via Q&A about collaborating and also what to expect from the series.

From the creative minds of Lalanii Wilson Jones and Treavion Davenport comes Keilanii Jennings, a sexy, feisty, independent, proud Texas mogul in the making who makes no apologies about splurging on her lavish lifestyle, designer labels, 5-star getaways, and her “boy toys”. Keilanii is a confident, self-made success story whose life takes complex twists and turns while building her empire. Things start to heat up when she meets Elliot Jennings Jr., a handsome, charismatic companion who turns out to be her worst nightmare. Like most women, Keilanii wanted to have it all, including her happily ever after. This seems imminent until she discovers that the man who stole her heart tries to steal her fortune and is exposed as the ultimate gold digger.

How was it collaborating on a fiction novel? 

I write fiction and nonfiction, and Lalanii had a story in mind that had to be told. Our initial literary project was going to be a tell-all book, but after careful consideration, we just decided to let the facts fuel the fiction. Once we made that creative decision we began a journey that included hundreds of hours of interviews, transcription, bi-coastal meet up and lots of emails! It took 2+ years but we finally came up with a solid story that we both are excited about. – Treavion Davenport 

How much of Sugar Mama was based on real-life experiences?

Our book tells the true stories and empowers countless victims of users, abusers, and those who mistake kindness for weakness. It’s a true to life page-turner and will literally have you on the edge of your seat! -Lalanii Wilson Jones 

What does it mean to be a Sugar Mama? 

Most people are familiar with the concept of a sugar daddy but not necessarily a sugar mama. However, there are many women who are financially stable, or well on their way, and date men who purposely take more than they give. We incorporated the male gold-digger into the plot of Sugar Mama to give urban fiction a unique twist that also imitated life. -Lalanii Wilson Jones 

Describe what it’s been like promoting Sugar Mama during a pandemic? 

Sugar Mama definitely quells quarantine fatigue with a healthy dose of urban-fiction intrigue. Jennings pops off the page with her larger-than-life persona, her deep pockets and a problematic paramour who goes by the name of Elliot, Jr. In terms of getting the word out, Lalanii and I engaged in a virtual tour, participated in online book fairs and live events, most recently we were hosted by the one and only Teri Woods at the Book Boutique in Atlanta. It’s important that we continue to connect with readers virtually even in the midst of COVID 19 restrictions. -Treavion Davenport
