Aliyah Burke loves to read and write. Her debut novel was titled A Knight’s Vow. She is married to a career military man, they have two German Shepherds and a DSH cat. Her days are spent sharing her time between work, writing, and dog training.
What do you want readers to take away from your book?
I hope readers take away an adventure. I try to cover a gamut of emotions in a story, I want you to laugh, cry, or whatever right along with the characters, feel as if you are truly in the story with them.
Are you a believer in outlines, or do you write spontaneously?
Oh, I believe in them but they don’t work for me. J I’ve tried using and outline and my men just laugh and take me in the total opposite direction. So I’ve learned, my purpose is to pen the story, they’ll tell me how it plays out.
What do you think it is about your book that will keep readers turning the pages?
Hot men, feisty women, and hopefully places you can believe you’re there. I love adding little twists, my characters have quirks…ok, sometimes many of them but I think it makes them more “relatable” if that makes sense.
How can readers learn more and get in contact with you?
I love getting emails: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
