What do you want readers to take away from your book?
When reading Rhythm Can’t Keep Time, I want readers to understand that love in any type of relationship is a verb, not and adjective. Meaning love is more valuable when it is shown rather than felt. Although love can be shown and felt simultaneously, it should never be felt and not sown. Also, I challenge readers to define, know, and seek relationships that are positive, healthy and whole.
Are you a believer in outlines, or do you write spontaneously?
Depending on what I am writing determines whether or not I use an outline. The use of an outline is usually dictated by the length of what I am writing. When I am writing a book or something that covers a variety of subjects an outline works better. In fact, an outline makes it easier for me to write lengthy stories. I am able to skip around specific headers as needed without extra editing.
What do you think it is about your book that will keep readers turning the pages?
I believe the story compels readers to keep turning pages is Rhythm Can’t Keep Time deals with true to life characters and situations. Readers of both sexes are able to find at least one character and/or situation that he or she can relate to.
