- What inspired you to write this book?
I was inspired to write the A Louisiana Love Series after I wrote about the families in my Christmas books Love Me Again and Never Looking Back. I needed to explore these families a little deeper and they made sure I knew it.
- What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m presently working on another four-book series and a Christmas release that will go out this year with friends.
- Where did you come up with the names in the story?
Lots of African American families keep with the same initials in their family, especially, if the husband and wife have that initial. So, these families have stuck to that tradition.
- What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
With all three, I loved writing up into the plots. For the first time I really had no clue what my plot would be. I wanted to try writing without grafting and it worked for me. I also really enjoyed digging for another language. I wanted to incorporate Spanish since the characters were Latino, and it was amazing.
- Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?
When I think about the main family, The Booth Family…
the wife, Jessica Booth, is definitely the matriarch of her family.
her husband, Jasper Booth Sr., is a witty mild-mannered man.
their adopted son, Kane Jackson Booth, is a hothead who is eventually going to figure out why he’s so angry.
their son, Jasper Jr., is a complete smart mouth who I’d like to say is me as a guy, and
their daughter, Jasmine, is the typical spoiled baby girl of the family who has her father’s heart and her mother’s stubbornness.
- If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Angela Bassett would definitely me Lady Jessica Booth.
Laurence Fishburne would be Jasper Booth Sr.
Will Smith would be Dr. James Booth.
Gabrielle Union would be Jasmine Booth.
LaLa Anthony would be Veronica Kimbrel-Booth.
The Sisters Valerie (Salma Hayak) & Vashti- (Eva Longoria)
Jennifer Lopez would be Selena Cox.
Fantasia Barrino would be Jade Booth.
Rome Flynn would be Vance Kimbrel Jr.
