Thank you for stopping by the Blog Tour featuring author Denesha Sheree. Denesha is the author of The Yellow Clutch Society and I have had the priveledge to interview her.
1.) Can you share with us a little about yourself? I am a Detroit native with a Military Brat background. I am pretty much a day dreamer so my head is always in the clouds with new writing ideas.
2.) Favorite scary movie and favorite cartoon? Believe it or not, I have no favorite scary movie. (Laughing). There are no real scary movies like the one from when I was growing up, that’s for sure. My favorite cartoon at my age is Sponge Bob (laughing) I’m sure there’s lot of folks that can agree.
3.) How did you come up with the title? Well, I knew it would be something society, then the word yellow stuck out at me. At the time I was jotting some ideas down while looking at a Judith Leiber Clutch, so I put it all together and there you have it, a society of upper class, powerful and prestigious women with a secret that shocks the world.
4.) How did you first start writing? I always wrote in journals but when I was in my creative writing class, we were put into groups and we had to exchange papers. One of my group members read the paper and advised my teacher to read a bit out loud. As he began to read, the lecture hall grew quiet. I looked around to see everyone attentive. Hell, I was even attentive, because I couldn’t believe I wrote something so vivid that you could picture yourself sitting there. After class, the professor asked me to have it published. I kind of blew him off, but from that day forth I knew I was in love with writing.
5.) Growing up, what books do you remember reading? I actually loved the Nancy Drew (Hardy Boy’s) Series (Laughing). When I became a pre-teen, I started sneaking my mother’s Stephen Kings Book’s. I also started reading a little of Daniel Steel and Nora Roberts.
6.) Any other books in the works? Future projects? My next project will be a tale of two Novellas that will include Damon’s Die-nasty/Mirror’s Mirror. Now this will be followed by a Novella called "Ring Burial". Author Stephanie Norris and I, will also be working on a Novella called "wife Swap, so I am excited about that.
7.)What inspired you to write The Yellow Clutch Society? The inspiration for writing "The Yellow Clutch Society" came to me so fast that I can’t particularly say anything inspired me to write this one. I just knew at the last sentence of writing it, that it would jump start my career as a writer and that my style of writing was going to be super different. What drives you towards your ambitions? Anything in particular? While fame or Money drives some people toward their ambitions, finding my purpose in life drives mine.
