1. Besides writing, what else do you like to do?
Besides writing my main focus at this moment is making steps to building up my own company for my children’s future. Building a Brand that they can one day benefit and profit from; creating a legacy.
2. What inspired you to become an author?
The Inspiration for becoming an Author simply began when I was a little girl, just a young girl going through and I expressed myself through poetry. I didn’t develop the want for book writing until I got older and my Grandmother expressed to me how unique I was. Her intererst and Faith in me is what led me to write today, all for you Lestina.
3. What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?
December 11, 2015, the day my debut novel Hood Love On The Run was published I was nervous!! I had never written an Urban Novel and wasn’t sure if my writing style would be accepted in this type of Industry. Once the reviews started coming in and the wild support I was getting from my hometown, family and friends I believed in me more and more. The excitement was unreal, little ‘ol Chelsea from the Fruit made her dreams into reality!!
4. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years my company will be up and running and profiting majorly, I, Chelsea will be a #1 National Best Selling Author and be flexible in many genres. In 5 years my work will be turned into scripts and my books will be plays then moving on up to the big league, movie productions!
5. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?
The most helpful advice I’ve recieved since being in the Industry as a Published Author was stay true to yourself and your work will show your uniqueness. So if you are looking to become an Author, just because your style is different from the hottest out doesn’t mean your style can’t be the hottest out!! Be true to you and let your work speak volumes!!!
From Hood Love On The Run Part 1
Moniece is a small town country girl that makes major moves for her man Deshaun in hopes of building a foundation together. What she doesn’t expect is for her man to be involved in so much drama. His life is filled with hoes of all sorts, and to top it off, his baby mama is as petty as they come.
One man’s loss is another man’s treasure, and Moniece starts to believe that she definitely deserves more respect than what Deshaun is giving her. As loyal as she is, she finds herself wondering if it’s worth it. The only problem is leaving him. It isn’t as easy as it’s said to be. Will Moniece continue to be the rider that forgives Deshaun for all of his faults? Or, will his well run dry, and he finds himself alone and missing the one woman that he thought would never leave?
