At what moment did you discover your passion for writing?
My passion for writing began while I was completing my last degree. The dissertation for my Doctorate was a self-journey and my Dean told me to consider putting it in book form. I met Editor Lillian B. Seays and she agreed to publish my first book, “Life at 433”. The rest is history.
How would you describe your writing style?
Relaxing, Calming, and Focused. I have a huge wall calendar and my goals are placed at least 60 to 90 days out. This ensures that I don’t overwhelm myself and clap for the wins along the way. Also, on the weekends I play music do you will hear some Frank Ocean, CKay, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Troye Sivan, and classic Motown. Music is a great motivator.
What does the creative process entail?
Research is a big part of the creative process. Being in Entertainment, there is always something or someone new. Networks, Organizations, and Publicists hire me to write a lively story for their audience. So, I’ve got to be good, quick, efficient, and error-free. Once it’s published — it’s in the world. Plus, be adaptable. Oftentimes, a client may change the dates and times of an event, you cannot get upset. Adjust what you can and knock it out of the park!
If you could sum up the message of all three of your books into one message, what would it be?
Always believe in your GIFTS! Never compare your success to someone else and remind yourself that no matter how difficult, you can do anything. Personally, my Affirmation is key each day. I use my last name: MOSE – Moving Obstacles Slowly Everyday
Where do you hope to see your work in the next 3-5 years?
I’m humbled at the rooms and major A-List Stars that are in contact with me. It’s such a gift. I’d really love to be an Entertainment Correspondent on a major broadcast company.
What message do you have for the next generation of writers?
Have a clear message when you send your work to people. They should not have too many questions if you are concise and your story hits all the key points.
What is your definition of a Pretty Woman Who Hustles?
A Pretty Woman Who Hustles does not depend on her looks to ascertain success. She is qualified, prepared, and sound in her work.
