Donna Hill Author Interview

Donna Hill is my DEAR FRIEND as well as one of my favorite authors. She is so real and down to earth it’s like we have known each other forever, To show you how small the world is, Donna worked at the library that I used to hang out in when I was a teen. We probably passed each other a million times, but met face to face 3 years ago. Donna has a wicked sense of humor and loves music as much as I do. I am very proud to say I own almost all of her 50 plus books and anthologies. Donna is my friend and I adore her, OH and I am the President of her FAN CLUB

Hello Donna Hill , how are you!
As always I am stressed and crazed but it's all good!

Tell us, what led you to write Seduction and lies?
Well, S&L is the sequel to Sex and Lies. It brings to the spotlight one of the new cartel members Danielle Holloway, who is immersed in an identity theft assignment. I thought of the storyline because of all the incidents in the news about folks having their lives totally ruined by identity thieves.

Are any of the characters you or someone you know?
Aw, hell naw! LOL. My life is no where near as interesting.

What genre is it?
Romantic Suspense

What is Seduction and lies about?
Well, as I mentioned it centers around an identity theft ring that is wrecking havoc on New York. Danielle who is a fashion photographer gets pulled into the assignment when her best friend and fellow cartel member, Savannah can't handle it as she is in her first trimester of pregnancy and and Mia has to go out of town on business. Danielle has to get a crash course in Cartel operations in order to pull it off, and she must keep it all a secret from her live-in lover Nick Mateo. Nick and Danielle have their own personal identity issues as well, which are revealed through their hot and steamy relationship.

This is book 2 of a series right?
Yes it is. The first one was Sex and Lies


What were the easiest and the hardest parts to write?
Hmmm, now that its finished it all seems easy! LOL. It's not so much that it was hard or easy, but just having the time to dedicate to pulling it all together and making sure that above all I brought the characters to life.

Does Seduction and lies have a sequel coming?
It sure does! And guess what? The first three chapters of the sequel Temptation and Lies is in the back of Seduction and Lies!

Has writing Seduction and lies, given you any AHHH HAAA moments?
I think it would be the discovery that Danielle makes about herself. Working that out in my head and then on paper gave me one of those moments.

How has your writing journey been?
My journal has been long, pretty successful, full of surprises and constant challenges.

How many books have you written?
Wow, well over fifty.

Not calling any of your babies ugly, but which was your favorite?
Hmmm, I would have to say Rhythms

As a writer, what has been your epiphany?
That it never gets easier!

What was the killer line in any of your books for you?
"I may as well tell you now. You'll find out soon enough. I slept with my best friends husband . . ." from An Ordinary Woman.

Let’s talk about Donna!

What do you have brewing?
I am currently working the "What Mother Never Told Me," the followup to Rhythms. As well as Book 4 of The Ladies Cartel.

When should we expect it?
Fall 09

Who do you like to read?
Hmmm, James Patterson, Bernice McFadden, Toni Morrison, Carleen Brice, Pearl Cleage

What are you reading right now?
A Mercy by Toni Morrison

What did you do while writing? Music etc?
Try to concentrate on my work and not surf the internet!!

When you finished writing Seduction and lies? How did you celebrate?
Vegged out on TV!!

What is your one guilty please?
Buying electronic gadgets!! sigh..

Debra….. Yes I want that new Kindle you just got !!!!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully a successful publisher.
