K.D: Newark, Delaware
Bubbles: Rochester, N.Y
DJGBC: Tell us a little bit about Playground?
K.D: I actually came up with the Playground idea while was inside of a club. I have close friends who were in that lifestyle and I wanted to tell their story. It just so happens that Bubbles had submitted her manuscript to La Femme. Michele Fletcher thought it was a great idea if we collaborated together.
DJGBC: When and why did you begin writing?
K.D: Since 2007
Bubbles: KD and I had a great edgy concept for a book series we both were working on. Kd likes to call it Factional fiction. So we collaborated and joined ideas and created Playground. For me this was my first time being published. KD guided me through the process of writing a book
DJGBC: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Bubbles: It’s crazy I’ve been “writing” for years but actually holding the finished copy of playground in my hands felt like complete validation.
K.D: When I was published.
DJGBC: What inspired you to write your first book?
K.D: I started out in 2007 writing stories for a website called Nude Africa. Lol. I had a lot of fans and someone told me that I wrote a novel. They thought I should take it down and get it published. I did.
Bubbles: Like I said before factional fiction wink wink
DJGBC: Do you have a specific writing style?
K.D: I’m versatile.
DJGBC: How did you come up with the title Playground ?
K.D: Everyone came to play so…
DJGBC: Is there a message in Playground that you want readers to grasp?

KD & Bubbles: 85%
DJGBC: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
KD & Bubbles: Yes
DJGBC: What books have most influenced your life most?
K.D: I read all types of books. I like ones that are realistic but with an edge, the ones that talk about what most people like to sweep under the rugs.
DJGBC: Who would you consider a mentor?
Bubbles: Honestly I look to KD Harris for everything transitioning from Model to Author hasn’t been an easy thing to do but with KD and Michelle fletcher guiding me it’s been a pleasure.
K.D: Bubbles answered it for me.
