Known as the anything but love girl, Morgan Hart has two passions, travelling and having fun. After reassuring her French lover, Marcel, that their relationship will resume unchanged when she returns, she’s ready to begin her Cape Town adventure, only to find that her friend Amber is a no-show at the airport, and Morgan’s stuck with having to travel solo, that is, until she falls into the lap of widowed single father, Dakar Ngosi, whose good looks and charm have her questioning her resolve to living life unattached and carefree.

Dr. Ngosi is beyond annoyed when a seemingly inebriated Morgan slumps down beside him in the airport lounge where he’s waiting with his sister for their flight. When his sister volunteers him to show the lovely American the sites of their country, his irritation grows, but he soon discovers that Morgan is as enticing as she is beautiful, and he must decide if he’ll stick to his vow to never love again or pursue the American woman whose captured his heart.




Interview

What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Editing is definitely the most challenging aspect of writing for me. That’s when I have to make certain that the image in my head has been captured on the page. The first draft is the most exciting as I imagine the characters’ journey to transformation.

 

What songs are most played on your Ipod?

When I am writing I can’t listen to song lyrics. I find them too distracting and they pull me out of the story. Usually, if I do need to listen to something while writing, it will be the sound of wind and rain or relaxing music.

 

 

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

I have one beta reader, sometimes two who I know appreciate contemporary romance/women’s fiction. I learned that it’s important that critique partners and beta readers enjoy the genre you write in.

 

 

What book are you reading now?

I just finished reading Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman. It was very engrossing and disturbing at the same time.

 

 

How did you start your writing career?

Honestly, I began writing in elementary school when my fourth grade teacher had students send in poems and short stories to the local newspaper. Previously I wrote for my university’s special interests newspaper and did technical writing for work before seriously focusing on writing novels almost 5 years ago.

 

 

Tell us about your next release.

June 15,2022, was the release date for Anything But Love, which is Book 2 of my California Hearts series. Morgan, the main character takes a vacation to South Africa where she meets a man who has her questioning her decision to be a woman whose open to ‘anything but love.’ The novel explores the nature of friendships, family, and personal growth beyond our comfort zone. I’m in the editing process for Love Lost and Found, which is Book 3 in the series. I am hoping to send that manuscript to my publisher sometime this month.
