Hey Big Spender

Hey there Big Spender....

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn & A Lite Farie Tale Series...







It’s been a while since I posted, been really busy; sorry guys :(.

Well I started working on the new books, and well it’s been crazy. I recently revamped A Lad’s Trouser’s, because I was getting feedback from some of the fans on how they liked the story, but wished it was in true form; so I took the weekend to revamp it, and it is now in 1800’s form. I must admit I had fun doing it as well. I got a sad review for A Slow Time to Love, but I’m getting used to it. I also realized yesterday that the pdf’s I offered for free on Bookie’s Christmas party may have been the old unedited pdfs, and this may be the reason for the review. I’m going over the book now, and if so, I’ll contact Bookie and offer the new true ones to the readers who got them as gifts.

Anyway… on to happier news.

I have six new books I’m working on, and thought you guys would like some tid bits;

Historical Romance Update…

My newest in the Historical genre will be A King among Thieves, set in 1600′s Scotland. Symphony has been the hand servant to the king for many years, however he was a bit frisky; and now she is with child his newest surviving heir. It does not matter that she is mulatto, Symphony still carries an heir to the throne; and the Duke of Lochlier will stop at nothing to make sure Mary, King John’s legitimate child inherits the throne; even if it means getting rid of Symphony and her illegitimate heir. Before his death the king entrusted his knights-men Kendrew Bànach to protect his heir at all cost. And what better way to protect her than an introduction to Black Shamus and his crew.

Kendrew has been in faithful service to the king for the last ten years, however with the threat of another war…he longed for the highlands. The king gave him charge of his hand servant, and as he gazed into her beautiful cinnamon eyes, he knew that only death could keep him from protecting her and her unborn child.


Yea…I’ve got a mean thing for those Scotts. What I wouldn’t do for a hot Scotsman with an amazing body! Hahaha! The accent alone could make me…well never mind… I’m sure you get it lol.


The next is Shards of Grey set in 18th century England, and because I’m using the tail end of the 1790s as well I was able to add a bit of piracy here too. Wooho just fun.


It is Julia’s 18th birthday, and all she desires is a holiday in England. However, she must be chaperoned; and the very idea of Mrs. Tilling’s dreadful daughters Leuticia and Millicent chaperoning her is cause for the vapors. This leads Julia to entreating her father to allow her to take Absel, her childhood friend along. It didn’t matter that she is mulatto, she is Julia’s best friend!

William Aldridge knew after ten years in New Gate, his life needed a change. When he boarded the Marry Ellen bound for America, he never imagined in a million years that it would be ravaged by pirates, nor that he would met the most beautiful woman he had ever seen; and the fact that she was a slave…didn’t matter one bit to him.


Paranormal Update…


Next is book 12 Hidden Shadows of the T.B.M.D series. Finally Nia’s premonition comes true, and it’s anybody’s guess who survives it. It should have been out in the beginning of the summer, but you guys know how we writers are; we get sidetracked with other projects lol, and I put out Napoleon’s Gift instead lol.


Gata; Daughters of Light the fourth installment of the A Lite Farie Tale series will be next.

With the new births, and Dagdha venturing back and forth between the two world, an ancient prophecy even the king didn’t know about has begun. Will Bekan wake from his comma, and if he does is he the reincarnation of Lokie; or has Lyra’s love for him saved him.


Contemporary Update…

Sands & Spirits.

All Sora wanted was a year of freedom from tenure, academic projects, and the snootiness of the department. When Mina surprises her with a trip to Egypt, not only is she surprised, but ecstatic as well. However the icing on the cake is British Anthropologist Forester Cummings; just those baby blues of his alone could have her digging up things she’d sworn off doing for a long while.


The next installment

Grave Reviews; Meghan.

Although Meghan knew Hannah from college and they had been best buds, she hadn’t heard from Hannah since she took the job with the New York Times; so why would the detective show her Hannah’s picture and ask her if she knew Hannah. Meghan had nothing to do with the review world, but the severed ear in the box; said she was in it now! And remember guys, you can find all of my books on Amazon.com from $2.99 and up :)

Have an awesome Sunday....

Them VMA'S..."And We Can't Stop"...Laughing...

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series...


 So, I'm sure by now, er'body and they mamma has seen the VMA'S, or at least clips of what actually went on. Gaga was her normal self they say, but the actual show kicker, and the winner in "Ratchetness of the Century," Award goes to Miley Cirus.

I could not stop laughing!!!

I swear!

The first thing I thought was, "OOH Gurl...No," 

I understand that er'body needs a lil Twerking now and then, but come on gurl, what is wrong with you? 

I didn't actually watch the show, but since I subscribe to most of the popular social sites, I have been bombarded by images of it. The audience reactions are classic, and I just had to put some of them up, encase you guys haven't seen them.


 I could not stop laughing at the Smith family faces. They went from wtf, to disbelief, to Ewww, and finally OMG! 

I would sure like to see what Paula Patton thought of Robin and Miley's performance...

 I hate Taylor's Smith's music... but I have to agree with her and Selena, this is just ratchet...



  I mean, c'mon, she had to know it was just "Nasty," lol. I'm all for white girls twerking, and any other nationally for that matter, but if people are looking at you, like you are living outside yo mind, then there's a problem, and she should have called it quits after that...

  And this was classically funny. If Drake can't believe it! Then it must be bad when even rappers shake their heads in disbelief...

 To me, "Twerking," itself is just nasty....I see no dance value in it, but hey...that's just me. Nasty...Nasty...Nasty...

 At least with normal people, there are some consequences fo gettin yo twerk on...hahahaha! I guess they're Twerk, let alone their studies have been suspended! Lma0!

  The whole idea of the dance is...

I may write Paranormal, Contemporary and Historical with a slightly erotic element, but it is done tastefully. There is nothing tasteful about Twerking... and its sad that our young women of today have less and less respect for themselves...


How can you expect men to respect you...when you don't Respect Yourself...;)



On to Happier and less ridiculous things... 

Next week Interview with Contemporary Romance author Carol Bennet...

New Book Reviews...so stay tuned... 

:) Have an Awesome Day!!

Erotic & near Erotic Authors...

Posted on June 10, 2013 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series







Today, I postulated the question; why are near Erotic and Erotic Romance Writers treated differently. Almost as if, we were branded with a scarlet A among the writing community, because they never take us seriously.

Perfect example; I liked over 100 author pages on Amazon as a favor to some fellow authors. Ya know how many people liked my page, and kept shouting for me to add tags. 16 flippin people. Is that some janky arse shite or what lol? J/K J


Well anyway, you would not believe some of the comments I received when I posted this same question. I have changed the names of the kind folks that posted, because I’m not trying to hurt people’s feelings, (well except for one tool who just wouldn’t stop ranting!) :)


It’s their opinions, and the great thing about America is that we are entitled to them.


However, I do feel that some of the things they said were a bit harsh. yet, at the same time its good to get feedback from the public. Most of them have the misconception that all we erotic Romance novelist do is ply them with gratuitous sex, have no form, skills, hope of any kind of plot, goal for the writing, and our characters just aimlessly screw each other; and to this I do take OFFENSE.

We as Romance, near Erotic and Erotic alike need to skool them lol, because we have substance, heart, talent, and everything else that a “Normal” fiction writer does.


C’mon fellow Erotic writers, let’s storm the “Normal” fiction masses and show them what we can do!!! ;)


Some of the comments that were posted on the site…


M&A: wrote:

Interesting dilemma, Alexandria I haven’t read your books, but clearly you have put your heart and soul into them. I think there probably is a segment of the reading public that arbitrarily rejects the “erotic” label. Probably because of a perception that “erotic” is synonymous with gratuitous sex rather than what Faulkner referred to as the “heart” vs. “glands” in his Nobel Prize address. Can an erotic novel have pretensions to art? Of course it can in the hands of a serious novelist. Think Lady Chatterley’s Lover. A marvelous novel, ahead of its time, though it would likely have been categorized “erotic” had it been written today. Now here’s a bit of irony for you to ponder. I first read this as a young teenager in the “expurgated” version. Ran into a lot of asterisks. But it had great power as a love story. Some years later, when the ban was lifted, I read the “unexpurgated” version. Maybe it was dated by then, but I found some of the dialogue (passages like “F___k a flame”) a little ridiculous. In the end, I thought the expurgated version was a better novel. What was left to the imagination was more powerful than some of the explicit passages. I think that is something for every serious novelist (such as yourself), writing in the erotic genre, to weigh carefully.


Dickweed wrote:

I find it difficult to take, any writer that uses ‘kinda’, ‘lil’, ‘cuz’, ‘shud’ (etc) too seriously - but, maybe, I am just an old British dinosaur ! (No offence meant) !( yea he is, but he should have tried punctuation first tee-hee.)


K&C wrote:

I think it depends. I imagine fans of the genre will take the writers seriously but there does seem to be a bit of a stigma on it. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of it. I don’t mind if there are erotic scenes in books, but in erotic novels that I’ve read, it seems that the big goal is to get two people into bed. In addition, that’s what the genre is about I know. But that’s not what I read a book for. I also think that the genre has been hampered in the past a bit by some poor writing and hackneyed or cookie cutter plots. That could be changing, things becoming more sophisticated in the genre. So I do think in the writing world in general, the genre might still be looked down a bit, but I don’t think that’s necessarily fair. It has an audience and if the writing is good, it should be as respected for what it’s supposed to be.


L&M wrote:

Yeah, I gotta say Alan (yeah, that’s right, I typed “gotta”…hell not to mention “Yeah”), if offence (in America we spell it offense so you’re spelling is really upsetting my spell check) was not meant, why say it? Obviously these are informal discussions in an online chat format, not book proposals or resumes. And please, don’t get me started on British English. Much as I love things British, when I was there in the 80s, there were times I needed the Universal Translator just to understand people. After all, it wasn’t Americans who created rhyming slang. I know the British think they invented English, but they didn’t. They appropriated it from about 80 different other cultures thousands of years ago and slapped their own brand name on it when it started coming together in the form of a language. American English is just another branch of the tree.


Having said that, Alexandria, your stuff (yeah Alan, I typed “stuff”) sounds interesting. If I have a complaint with the erotic genre it’s with those books that put aside plot and character development for sex scenes. But you seem to have a pretty good balance. It’s nice to have a strong female character too. I think one of the things affecting the respectability of the genre is the Harlequin Romance sort of work which I think a lot of people think of when they think romance or erotic fiction. They do seem a bit “assembly line.” Maybe writers like you can bring some legitimacy to the genre. :)

As a writer of erotic stories, I can tell you from the feedback I get on Bookrix.com, people do take you seriously.


Loved this discussion, it was great and full of feedback.


So guys, just thought I’d share a few with you out there. I’ll keep you posted with updates ;)

Social Media @ It's Finest...

Social Media at its finest...

Author Alexandria Infante for Eternal Press.

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series




Cruising some of my sites that I subscribe to, I found myself wondering; why is it that because the internet offers some form of anonymity, people just run with that?

I like to use a lot of slang. I'm guessing the fact that I'm a Literature teacher, and I have to speak in proper English all day long; I kinda feel like when I'm at home it's kewl if I don’t. Well I was actually taken to task for my usage of slang, not once but twice trashed for it.

I happen to belong to this one site, which promotes dating as well as writing, and some tool said because I used a lot of slang, which he mistook for misspellings; there was no way in hell I could be a Literature/Art History/ Mythology Teacher, (personally, I believe it was just sour grapes cuz I turned his triflin ass down tee-hee-hee).

Moreover, on Monday, once again someone made a rather nasty comment about my slang. He even went so far as to imply that anyone who uses slang, can't possibly expect people to take them seriously as a writer. Can we say Pretentious AF!

Laughably, then again yesterday, I was actually kicked out of a group, because the thread was in an interracial group get this;

Black Women, who Love White Men!



I only went into the group to see what it was about, after laughing hysterically. What caught my eye the most was the fact that it was named Black Women, instead of White Men, who love black women, especially seeing as how the administrator is a white male.

Misogynist much!



Anyway, I liked many of the people despite the horrible name cuz c’mon I write interracial romance, so of course I am attracted to white men. Well one group member named Shanesha had me in stitches the entire time, because she was hysterically funny. So, there was a post from this woman, where in my eyes, she basically set women back centuries. It was on relationships, and how she made her man her king, how he was the king of his castle, how she made him a hot meal each morning, a homemade lunch, rubbed his feet, blah blah blah. I can understand this if you are a stay at home wife, and you have nothing better to do than that ( hope I don’t offend anyone, but  I did the domestic, not to that extreme, but I did). Well, it’s an open forum, so I was like well my idea of a relationship is 50/50. You squeeze the orange juice, and I fry the bacon.


Boy, did that start a shite storm lol.


Some guy named Paul, I wish I remembered his last name, so he could be put on blast for the misogynistic bastard that he is, responded to the post very negatively. He even went so far as to spew this sexually defined bullshit, and because I called him on it, he began to rudely comment on me saying I was bitter, probably hurt by some man, and crap like that. He was looking for a traditional wife ( I say more like a backwater slave) and it wasn’t get this, he actually typed Alexandria Infante. Then had the nerve to say that I had an attitude problem, and I obviously couldn’t take a joke. The whole ordeal was far from funny, and I was shocked that he would think that it was.


They kicked me! Hahaha, off the site.


I am assuming they have a policy which says no arguing, so I can understand removing people from the site who do. But come on you lil jerk off admin, make it fair. If you’re kicking me off, do the same to him, fair is fair.


How do I know he’s still on?


Another member I became friends with said the conversation was still going on, he was still talking trash about me, incited the rest of the members too as well, but he was still allowed to be on the site. I could say a whole lot of nasty things about the admin, the guy and the Facebook group as a whole, but I’m just moving on. However, it does bring me back to the topic of the day;

The only thing I hate about the internet is how people can hide their identity, so it means no one has to take responsibility for what they actually say. People can spew the most hateful, evil, misogynistic, derogatory racist shite they can think of, yet are never held accountable for it.


Just my thoughts for the day, while I sit here giving my second to last final for my students lol.

My thinking, I should stay out of chat groups and social media sites, unless it has to do with my writing, or teaching lol.


Literary What???

Posted on June 5, 2013 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)



Off today and thought I would just hang out at Starbucks and check on how the books are doing, get some atmospheric blogs going on, and just do and be nothing for the day.

I shopped on a couple of writer's sites, and was very surprised to find that there is a lot of


"Hater Aid"


out there! This I was shocked at too, because if I happen to be the next big thing in Paranormal Romance, there is no way I wouldn’t want to give the next writer all the tips I could to help them make it as well.


However, what I found were a lot of pretentious writers, authors and reviewers who think their booties don't stank, just like the rest of us.


At one site people even took issue with authors who posted their already published works (no not me! Lol), and said things like, this is not for you, go to the published page. Or if you want to add to this thread you need to be unpublished.


The famous one, they just erased the people’s links, post, and anything related to the person!


Way harsh y'all lol


But what I'm very surprised about, is this so called elite intellectual community of ours, where people supposedly aspire to assuage the minds of the public with both literature and meaning, who really are a bunch of school yard kids basically saying;


“If I can't be quarterback, then I'm taking my ball and going home!”


Then writing as a whole? I mean c'mon, why should any literature be pigeon holed, except by it's genre? Why should it be labeled as Black literature, Latino literature, Asian literature ect. I”ve never seen the title Caucasian literature?


Have you lol?


Seriously guys lol, I'm curious I wanna know lol. If you find it send it to me.

If I read Shakespeare, do I look for the title which states; written by a British white man, but its speculated that Phillip Marlo actually wrote it?


So why is it implied by a label that any book that is;


1. Written by a minority or

2. About minorities? Should be placed in another section away from the main stream.


Wtf is this?


Should not the book be reviewed or read because it’s a good book, not what color/race the character or the writer is?

But then if this were the case, I would be living in a euphoric, beatific, cool, crazy, delighted, dreamy, ecstatic, elated, enchanted, enraptured state of none existence, hahahaha;


Where Utopia actually exists.

Yea right.


This truly pisses me off, because the vast majority of readers don't think like that, so who should some butthole in marketing? Then I guess I sorta look at Love through rose-colored glasses, because the person's race should not matter in love. If it did then I wouldn't be here, nor my kiddies.


Seriously, I am at a loss on how to market my own books lol!


I mean should it matter to the average reader that my main female character isn’t white if the story’s good? Should it matter to the African-American/White/ Chinese Japanese/ Hindu business ex ect., that my character is Latina and African?


All semantics to me, acceptable, allowable Bullshit that I find so irritating!


Wolves, Vamps and anything else supernatural is not normal in the first place; so why would any of this bollix matter when reading or writing paranormal? Or any other genre for that matter.


Lol, I swear it gets under my skin!!!


Anyway, after two cups of my amazing Starbuck’s Latte, I feel a bit better, but wired as hell!

What do they put in that coffee at SB

Sex...sex...and more sex...

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series...







I my daughter brought me a kindle, whoo hoo for me!

Lol, so I thought I’d test it out on some freebies first before I actually ordered anything off of Amazon. (My books don’t count lol). Anyway, I found some great books, in pretty much all three genres that I write in. As I was reading my first book, I paused to think about Paranormal Romance as a whole.


Now, seeing as though I am a Romance writer myself, I wondered if sometimes we as writers and authors go too far?


I was surprised at the amount of sex in paranormal, and wondered if I myself was a party to it. I do feel like adult relationships need the natural progression of a sexual nature in that relationship, but do we as writers go too far. Where do we draw the line, and just because we can, does it always mean that we should.


This was my conundrum.


I love what I write, so I began to test my books to see if I took out all of the intimate scenes, would the book still hold water, so to speak. I am proud to say, that they do. Lol, well all except book 11, because there has to be that sexual element, however I do feel that it isn’t done in a gratuitous style. The sex actually furthers the plot, and the book is sorta based on the intimacy between the main character and the men she loves.


Yes, that was men lol.


So, my call for the day, is what’s your opinion?

Do you think Paranormal as a whole, contains too much sex, violence, or what have you?

Should we as authors tone it down, and if we do, will we actually have a fan base for it if we take out the sex?


Also, when you read Paranormal Romances, is that just a given, and something you expect to read?


Post your comments and let me know what you think.

Have an Awesome Day!!!

This is the Teaching between Midnight and Dawn Series...






I was listening, or more like eavesdropping, lol on a conversation between this couple. The girl was complaining that the guy had no spark anymore. He was pretty much absent in the relationship, and she wanted to know if it was over between them. The guy came back with the normal guy speak, ending with the infamous, "Just because I don't say I love you everyday, doesn't mean that I don't!"

I sorta chuckled to myself, then shook my head, finished my Starbucks, then left.


Since Sundays seem to be the only day I don’t have a million fricken things to do, I’ve decided that I’ll make Sundays blog day. For some reason your body seems to just go into that lazy mode, and won’t come out of it :)

In my quest for the perfect relaxing Sunday, I did a bit of internet surfing, downloaded some new tunes, and just pretty much vegged; with a cold glass of moscat or as the popular term so deems it, moscato.


And no I didn’t do it wit no hands…


Well, my music library is pretty nil now (My music man isn’t home for the summer yet :( especially since it seems like there’s a new hit every five seconds, so I thought I’d replenish it. Moreover, since I write Romance, I try to keep my library full of sexy cuts like Trey, Drake, Omarion, Robin Thicke, Bichatas, and even some alternative love songs.

In my search for love songs or just some get down and get nasty music lol, because I need that too since I write sensual Romance. I paused to think about the slow jam, the alternative love song, or some of that plain amazing 70s and 80s music, which was sung by some relatively hot looking guy who swears he meant the words he was singing.


My mind instantly reverted back to that conversation between the guy and girl.


(Love songs by women are entirely different), and for today this is about the “Male” lol.



Steven Tyler’s, “Don’t go to Sleep”, Player’s “Baby Come back”, Journey’s “Send Her My Love”, Incubus’ “Wish You were Here”, Mike Posner’s “Please Don’t Go” Nevershoutnever’s “Trouble” Crossfade’s “Cold” and Trap’s “Echo;” they all seem to imply some romantic sense of what men think. Especially, when that certain woman decides she’s had enough and walks.

Nevertheless, as I delved deeper into the music, I found myself going back to my roots, R&B, Bichatas, and the like.


My first impression was; why can’t men really think like this?


Seeing that I write romance, I normally get my creative juices (my brain people) flowing when I listen to music.

If it’s a fight scene, then it’s Evanescence, Nickel Back, Link n’ Park, Three days Grace, Disturbed ect. If it’s dialogue, then it Michael Bubble’, good old Frank, and 70s & 80s music as a whole.


However, when I get to the intimate scenes or argument scenes where the two main characters are pissed, have a huge fight to which one eventually storms out, I find myself going back to real R&B, (Tank, Tyrese, Usher, Robin, Jon. B., Trey, Jamie) or what my daughter and her friend like to term “Ridiculously Black Slow Jams”, love songs (mostly women here, because after all, I am. I loveeee Adel) because it seems to stimulate my brain for what it is exactly I need to write. In addition, don’t even get me started on Musiq Soulchild’s Beautiful!


God, I loveee that song!


Nevertheless, as I was listening to music, Trey Songz’s Role Play to be exact, I wondered to myself;


“Why aren’t men really like this?”

And if they are, where the hell are they??? Lol

Any wonder we women love Romance in most forms.


If you’ve watched any of Trey’s videos, you would think he was in actuality, the “Black Casanova”, because the sensuality just exudes from his videos. I had an urge to watch the video, and I was still amazed at how men just don’t seem to get it?


To my Male Counter parts out there;


This is what a woman wants!!!

Usher’s Trading Places is one of the hottest videos out there, and I suddenly thought;


“If men spent as much time watching these types of videos as they do say “Sports!” They would have a clue as to how a woman wants to be treated intimately, and essentially score major fricken brownie points.


Sadly enough, most men think artist like Drake, Tyrese, Trey, and Usher are punks (nicest word I could think of as opposed to what some of my guy friends called them), because they give up too much emotions. Nevertheless, here’s the thing guys; if you took even the slightest amount of advice from their songs, you know that hot chick you’ve been after for so long?

She would ultimately melt in your arms, if you took your head out cha ass for like two seconds and said hummm, “Maybe there is something to this.”

I swear, she would be eternally yours.


Even if you’re well endowed, if you don’t know how to use it, and when I say use it, not just the sex; but the sensuality of it, then you’re still a douche lol.


Moreover, learning is fun, and maybe you might even actually go so far as to ask her what “She” wants.


You might just be the guy women fight over.


Have you ever wondered why that amazing looking chick was with what you would consider a douche or a nerd?


It’s because he put her first (sexually, sensually, and emotionally). There is no such thing as emotionless sex, no matter how both sexes like to think there is.

Yet, to my male compradors, this intimacy is what keeps her there!

If you find that your relationship is lacking, your marriage just doesn’t have that spark sexually anymore, or something is just missing; try reading Women’s Fiction.


Even if it isn’t manly,

consider it your research lol.


Whether its a Sexy Paranormal, a Hot Steamy Contemporary, or that Sensual Historical Fiction, they all have one thing in common; they were written by Women for Women.


What better way to know the mind of a woman, or what she wants then to read it?


It is written there in plain English what she wants, what she dreams, and her wildest fantasy...


In addition, if you’re a guy who dates women of color, (African-American, Latina, Indian, Arab, ect) you had better invest in some ethnic culture. The one major thing the above artist have in common; is women all over the World LOVE them, no matter what Race, Sexuality, Sexual Orientation or Creed they are, and you know why?


Because they speak to the heart of the women, and what she wants intimately...


Just a thought.


If you’re a male reading this, women know what other women want.


It’s like my younger brother used to tell me when I was on the dating scene and asked him about some guy I was dating. He would reply, “Don’t ask another man about a man, unless you want the truth.”


That goes for us women too…



Have an awesome day!!!

Why do you write what you write?

Posted on April 21, 2013 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Well Hello everyone :D,

I know, it's been a while.

I was asked the last week why do I write, and thought I'd put the question to you as well.





When I was a kid, a published author meant Random House, Double Day, Penguin, Harlequin and the like, and it still amazes me everyday that I am a published author lol.


I wrote my first play (because let's face it I'm from Hollywood hahaha) at the age of 13, and it was based off a Shakespearean tragedy. When I look back now, my friends and I laugh constantly because it was a tragedy in writing. I can say, that it made them laugh, which at 13 was pretty much what I was aiming for anyway lol.


I went on for years in two different careers, but I knew something in me wanted to put pen to paper in that fashion, but life gets in the way sometimes; so we often place those hidden secret wants and desires on the back burner to marriage, kids, and just living.


Well I picked it up again after all this time, and although I loooove my paranormal's, my A Lad's Trouser's was the first book I ever wrote. It went through years and years of re-writes. So many, that I assigned it a lower priority in life as well, and thought I'd try a paranormal. I started reading Laurell K Hamilton, and boy was I taken aback, traumatized, scandalized, astonished and blown away all at the same time. I had always been a vamp/were fan, but never anythin like this. I was clueless to this genre, and I became ravenous for paranormal. Then thought one day, “I can do this!”


I was doing some research in the library one day, and I came across this book on Egyptian myth. Now, of course I knew Egyptian myths, I'm a teacher, but I had for years done what most of us do. I knew of them, but I had never truly ever studied any of them.


As I sat reading a passage on Ast', which is Isis' real name. She was given Isis by the Romans; I saw this woman in my head walking down a corridor in some kind of tomb. It was like a filmstrip, I just had to write it down; and thus began the Teaching Between Midnight & Dawn Series.


I love the Paranormal, but I didn’t see myself reflected in the works that I read; and if I did it was a side character, a supporting character, or a villain; so I thought I’d write my own. Being multiracial (Puerto Rican, Cuban, Native American, Irish and African-American).


I wanted to see a character like me, and the fact that this is rare spurred me on. Authors like me tend to get pigeon holed into one specific genre like Minority literature, Latina, African-American, or Ethnic, who hardly ever move out of that; and I think that this is completely unfair. I hoped by writing what I believe the genre should encompass, people would see the book for the story and negate the race of the character; that being, anyone could place themselves in the shoes of the character, not just someone of a minority background.


I'm sure I'm prejudiced by plenty of things when writing my style of the paranormal, so I often use that to my advantage lol. I discover brainwaves in songs, movies, the world at large, or just simple phrases sometimes. I love to write at Starbucks, because the bustling people always inspire me.


The nasty woman impatiently yelling at the Starbucks` employee because she gave her a mocha coffee instead of a mocha latté becomes a villain. The Hugh Jackman look alike becomes the next wolf, the sexy emo guy ordering the Eggnog latté becomes the next Master of the city for my vamps, or the hot blonde ordering the Tazo berry tea becomes the next warlock. I can even go so far as to make the tiny brunette the next main female character.


I love to write at night, especially since I write paranormal. Rainy nights are good for scenes of action, but full moon nights always seem to give me the most creativity. People in general instigate me to create something new. I base both my Paranormal and Fae series on mythology, so I am constantly inspired by a new myth, new legends, or new facts about lost artifacts, church scandals, or just random things in the news; and I incorporate them into my books.


Why do you write?

Let me know, I’m totally interested in why other writer became authors ;)
