BBB: What inspired you to become an author?
AL: Not to sound crazy or anything but it was truly the many characters' voices in my head who begged to have a platform to share their stories.
AL: In another lifetime, I was active in a writing platform and it was during this time when a contest presented itself surrounding bad boys. I conceived a very elaborate tale and when I was sharing it, many stated how "epic" they believed the story would become. But it was way too much to share as a contest entry. I never entered the idea and have transformed it into my debut novel, Deeper, which is a romantic suspense.
BBB: Tell us about your main character.
AL: My heroine's name is Avianna Linton or Avi for short. She's a recent transplant to New York City. Her past is shrouded in mystery. She's a no-nonsense kind of woman. She loves shopping and is a teacher. My hero's name is Noah Adams. He prefers to be addressed as Mister Adams especially by those who he doesn't have any relationship with. He's a New Yorker through and through who runs an international import and export company. He's a bit rough around the edges but says what he means and has the same expectations that others will do the same.
AL: I am in the midst of editing Deeper for my beta readers and I am also outlining the sequel to Deeper.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your work?
