I can keep going but I won't.

What book do you think everyone should read?

Vampires in America Series by D.B. Reynolds. That book series needs to be a TV or Movie ASAP.

How long have you been writing?

Since 2015

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

The main character comes to me in full view at once. The other characters come to me as I write.

Do you see writing as a career?

Yes. I am striving, manifesting and praying to be able to become a full time writer.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?

Yes. I love reading. I am all about Vampire Romance and/or Sci-fi romance. But I also love contemporary romance, sports romance, enemies to lovers, mob romance. Romance is my jam. I would read them all if I had the time in the day. I also enjoy reading personal growth books and books about financial investment.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

No more than 2 books at a time. But I will outline or write down new ideas I have that I can develop later.

If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?

Game of Thrones Series. That book series and TV series is beyond epic.

Pen or type writer or computer?


Do you have any advice to offer for new authors?

Keep Going. You got this. It is hard, but keep going.

Describe your writing style.

Drama, funny, dirty, lots of cuss words and lots of sarcasm.

What are you currently reading?

Book 15 in Vampires in America Series, Vampires in Europe, by D.B. Reynolds

What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

I just sit down and write. I put it all on the page. Then I go back, read and add to the scenes written to fill them out more until they are completely developed.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Start writing sooner. You love it. It will be your future.

Ireland Deckland may be a feisty probation officer with a tough exterior, but regularly putting handcuffs on perps has her view of people trending down. She’s been single for so long that she’s starting to think it’s a permanent status.

Xavier Gold may be the city’s most eligible CEO bachelor with a sexy as sin face, but the wannabe models who vie for his attention don’t have him looking to settle down. He’s played the game so many years, he’s starting to think no one will ever catch his eye.

When an unexpected meeting brings these two together, tough exteriors crack and sparks fly. But danger is never far from probation officers nor billionaires. After a bad business deal brings the Russian mob to the door, they have to fight to save their heads…or lose their hearts.

Author bio:

Reneé Nicole grew up just north of Raleigh, North Carolina, in the very small town of Franklinton. Nicole, as her family and friends call her, is a middle child and the best aunt ever (there’s even a mug that says so). She has lived in a few different cities throughout the United States, but for now calls Richmond, Virginia her home. Nicole graduated from college with a degree in Criminal Justice, and received her master’s degree in Justice Studies. Since then, she has worked for over a decade in the criminal justice field. Specifically, community corrections: first as a state probation and parole officer, and now as a federal probation officer. Since no one calls her mom or wife, she holds her ‘auntie’ title with pride. Nicole spends her nights in front of a computer screen writing about fictional men who do naughty things that would make anyone blush, and badass women who both want it and love it.

Nicole’s love of books developed later in life, after she was dragged into reading one of the best trilogies of all time. This led her to fall in love with writing. In particular, the process of using the power of words and imagination to entertain. She decided to write what she knows – but with lots and lots of steam. Nicole is excited to change her career path and provide entertainment to every person who picks up her book. Criminal Justice degree and author: sounds about right.

These days you can find Nicole working as a federal probation officer. A day job, as some may call it. But it’s not her only day job: she’s also a certified florist and small business owner of a flower shop, Petals of Color, with her sister and business partner. Nicole loves traveling, good rum, good wine, and spending time with her parents, siblings, and family.
