In our feature, Catching Up With…, Sistahs on the Shelf is pleased to to bring you updates on your favorite authors, ones who have new books or projects in the works.
Get cozy with Anna J., whose new novel, My Little Secret, portrays the hush-hush affair between a married woman and an a successful author that gets a little out of hand. Anna’s novels have been a favorite of Sistahs so read further to get to know Anna J. and the propensity she has to write girl-on-girl action.
What is your new novel, My Little Secret, all about?
My Little Secret is about the ups and downs of an affair between Jaydah B, a best-selling novelist, and Midori Hunter, a pediatrician who can’t seem to choose between being with her husband or being with the woman she thinks she loves.
Who is the character you love most from all your books, from My Woman His Wife to your latest, My Little Secret?
Monica has always been my favorite character. She’s so versatile, and can act a fool in any given situation.
When is your next title due to hit shelves?
I’m set to drop a novel during the fall of every year, so my next title, Snow White, will be out in September of 2009.
Where do you find your inspiration to concoct such dramatic tales?
My life is drama! (LOL) I’m always out and about talking to people so I take a lot of the situations told to me by friends and things of done/seen along the way and make up stories about them.
Why do most of your stories contain girl-on-girl action? Anything you want to share with Sistahs? 🙂
Well, for the record, I’m a heterosexual. Tons of people don’t believe me because of the nature of my books, but it’s the whole truth. 🙂 Girl-on-girl is so easy to write for me because although a lot of women will never admit it, a lot of us “straight” females want to experience what it’s like to be with a female. My books are just my imaginative thoughts on how a sexual encounter with someone like Monica would be like.
