Jackie Chanel Interview

To say I am crazy excited about this interview is an understatement. Back in 2004, I walked into the Bank of America call center in Norfolk, VA and was escorted into the training room. I was the first to arrive. When I opened the door, there was music blasting from a small set of iPod speakers and my trainer was dancing around the room while setting out the training materials. We became instant friends.

Fast forward to 2013 and my good friend informed me that she was quitting her job in order to pursue her career as an author. I thought she was nuts…until I read her work. She is an amazing author and a wonderful person. She has been a great friend and I’m so happy to see her going after her dream. I know her by her government name, but I believe you all know her by her middle names.

One playboy CEO. One curvy, determined administrative assistant. One hidden camera.

What could go wrong?

Lydia Charles is determined to show her boss that getting caught reading Fifty Shades of Grey in the parking lot can help the company bottom line. Preparing for the biggest work project of her life, a romance book marketing campaign, she never expected that an actual romance would interfere with the business of romance. Tough and cynical, her last office relationship exploded in her face. No man was worth it.

Until Matt Jones, a boss she didn’t know she had – a boss who took the Director of Social Media job she was gunning for – swept her out of a promotion and off her feet. Lydia didn’t want to respect him, much less like him – but her body had a mind of its own, turning traitor in chance encounters. After a steamy elevator episode that left her missing her panties – and most of her resolve – she decided that maybe it was time to let him get inside her – in more ways than one.

When he closed off to her unexpectedly, hurt feelings unleash a torrent of tension, with his order to follow his command triggering malicious obedience – following the exact letter of the law – in her. Interest from Matt’s eccentric millionaire friend Jeremy left her hot and bothered, with threesome dreams that made her want to obey – but in the bedroom. Not the boardroom.

What Lydia didn’t know was that “Matt” was really Michael Bournham, the CEO of the company, part of an undercover reality television stunt. Keeping his hands off Lydia’s luscious curves was becoming an exercise in restraint, but what was harder? Keeping his heart from her. For Michael, Lydia’s malicious obedience ignited a night of unbridled passion in the office that made him forget everything – including the rolling cameras – until it was too late.

Sometimes the best way to break the rules is to follow them…


When it comes to love, hate, trust, honesty, lying, cheating, deceit, betrayal, drama, money, power, respect, and back breaking, limitless, raw and uncut sex. This monthly Urban Soap, “Single Ladies” takes you to a whole nother level of play. There will be no holding back, no biting of the tongue and best believe the gloves are coming off when five childhood friends take you through the everyday life of living as a female in the hood. Expect everything… But boredom!!!












For years, Falisa Walker stood in the shadows of her husband Timbo as he ruled over their drug empire. They lived lavishly as King and Queen while calling shots from New York to Augusta, Georgia. Their Columbian connect in Miami, ensured their place at the top of the game.

They lived the dream, until the feds raided their mansion and snatched Falisa and her husband, leaving their twelve-year-old son to hold down the Throne. He did everything his father asked; even placing his own life in jeopardy to prove that he was capable of walking in the shoes that were left for him.

One simple mistake turned their entire family upside down, and their son was left to swim the waters with the Great Whites. Loyalties are tested, and bonds are strained as young Fly learns that the road to the throne is no cakewalk.

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.

Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin — find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that it was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how…
