Football Romance: What's your favorite genre to read?
DW: I would have to say contemporary romance, of course. But, I prefer romance with a twist, or humor.
Football Romance: Who or what influences you when you write?
DW: I must say I have been influenced by a great many writers of different genres. From Paul Curtis to Nora Roberts to Lawrence Sanders.
Football Romance: What do you do on a typical writingday?
DW: My typical writing day starts at around 9:00 pm. I try to get in an hour to two hours.
Football Romance: When you have writer's block how do you break free?
DW: Typically I would put down what ever I am writing and work on another project, Although that is not working at the moment. I am still trying to introduce two of my characters in one short.
Football Romance: Can you please give us a sneak peek at any of your upcoming books?
DW: Sure, the second book in my trilogy, “The Williams Men: Jeremie’s Story” will be out in 2009. I have “For Love or Loyalty” coming out in our calendar series. My man is August 2009. He can not decide whether he wants loyalty or love in his life. I also have a shape shifter story “Dr. Hugh Little and Detective Sidney Holmes” in the works. ..reference the last question… I also will have a free read posted on my freewebs site on Sept. 18.
Football Romance: Please tell us what you have planned next?
DW: I hope to combine two of my three books for print. In 5 years, where do you see yourself? – I hope to still be writing. Look at the family that God has blessed me with.
