BPM: What inspired you to sit down and actually start writing this book? Why now?
I had been hearing so many positive things about meeting your soul mate on an internet dating site that I decided to give it a try. My experience was so hilarious, I felt compelled to write Talk a Good Game.
BPM: Does your upbringing, prior relationships or life experiences inspire your writing?
Funny you should ask. Everything in my life inspires my writing. I always manage to find a way to sprinkle a little of my own life experiences on top of a double dose of drama to create the perfect plot twist for my next book.
BPM: Where do your book ideas come from? Are your books plot driven or character driven?
My books are always dialogue driven. I am all about the characters and giving them their own voice. I think stories that have strong characters with amazing voices are what drive a story.
BPM: Introduce us to your current work, Talk A Good Game.
After years of failed relationships, two sexy, single best friends decide to each take a chance at on-line dating. And they quickly discover that things aren’t always what they seem…
Air Force sergeant Nyree Dawson meets Jeremy Samuels, and as far as she’s concerned he is everything she’s ever wanted in a man. It isn’t until after the couple is married that the lies begin to surface, and the relationship goes from “I do” to, “what in the world have I done?” Restaurant owner, Janelle Fox has always had a spare boo in her back pocket, but when she meets Kaleb Kerrington on a dating site, the rules change. At first Janelle finds the jealousy cute, but after a while the accusations get to be too much that she realizes the confident man she craved is very insecure and unforgiving.
BPM: Give us some insight into your main characters. What makes each one so special?
I loved creating the characters of Talk A Good Game. Janelle Fox is the owner of FoxTrot and looking for a new sponsor to provide her the finer things in life. She has a hard exterior but she truly has a soft spot for a teenager desperate for help. Throughout the series, readers will get to see just how determined she is to find out the truth and the strong connection she has to this child. Nyree Dawson is a sergeant in the military. She has spent her entire life letting other people tell her what to do, but like so many women, she’s ready to finally rule her own life. Nyree will show readers she’s a lot stronger than they realized.
BPM: What topics are primarily discussed? Did you learn anything personal from writing your book?
The primary topic of this book is trust. Janelle and Nyree both find themselves in relationships with men who aren’t at all what they made themselves to be. While writing this book I learned a great deal about relationships and that it does take time before you really get to know someone.
BPM: What defines success for you, as a published author? What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Success to me is being able to write a book that touches or changes someone’s life. That means more to me than anything. I really like to write about life’s painful lessons hoping that others will be able to personally identify.
BPM: What are your expectations for this book? What would you like for readers to do after reading this book?
My expectations are always to entertain my reader. I would also like for readers to really be cautious if they are considering online dating. Things aren’t always what they seem.
BPM: Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?
Sasha Campbell is the alter ego of Angie Daniels. I decided to write a book using both names with the hope of merging the two audiences. I bring the romance and Sasha is all about the drama.
