I have stories that are linked together but they really are standalone books. If you decided not to read the others in the series, you wouldn’t be left bereft. However, there was something about Zola and her family of women whom I affectionately call The Women of Z that had something deep happening with them that I wanted to explore.
The very first character to make an appearance was Zola in She’s Got Soul and as I began developing her character and family life, her family members started to speak strongly to me.
Zora, her mother, her sister Zena whom I highlighted in Deep In My Soul and Zena’s daughter Zoe, made it clear from the jump that they weren’t your typical background characters. I wanted to know more about them and felt readers would as well. So far you all have been invested in each story and seem especially excited about learning more about Zoe and Zora.
Readers of the series will walk away knowing a couple of things they had not known before. These women are DEEP and they are psychic. It’s this psychic connection that led to me naming the series Soulmates. You just have to read the books to fully understand what all that means.
To help me get in the zone for writing this series, I play soulful music usually R & B, some neo-soul, and then I clear my mind and think of nothing else but this world I’ve created. Hours later, I’ve completed a couple of chapters bringing my characters and their stories closer to readers’ Kindles.
