I have always been a people watcher. I love to journal about things and people who interest me. The story came together like a picture on a canvas. My inspiration was soaps and novellas. I love the way people are interacting through their lives struggles. Movies like Life as a house, Color Purple, Goodwill Hunting etc. are a;; movies showing human characteristics as they are. My novel also focuses on people.
Each character has my voice. I decided they should be as real as I could make them. For instance, Vierna was a typical woman scorned. I have met many women going through a divorce because their husband found someone new. I attended a travel and tourism convention so the description of the event ,was from my memory. And as for the handsome Ned character moving from women to women, we see this time and time again. Women so desperate for companionship they don’t care anything about knowing his past.so if I were to give a numerical figure I would say the book is 1/3 of my own experience.
I follow Tyler Perry because he started out with an idea and look how far he has come.
