UBAWA: What's your favorite color? and why?
Obsession: My favorite color is yellow; it has been since I was a little girl. I have no idea why it became my favorite color. Maybe it came from my love for Big Bird on Sesame Street.
UBAWA: What's the last country you visited? Tell us about your visit.
Obsession: Haven't left the United States yet, but I plan on visiting Cyprus in the near future.
UBAWA: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

UBAWA: If you had to choose between owning a nice car or a nice house, which one would you choose?
Obsession: A nice house
UBAWA: If you could create your dream job/career, what would it be?
Obsession: I'd be a full time bestselling author
UBAWA: Most people say success is a matter of luck; what do you think?
Obsession: That's true for some, but not for most.
UBAWA: Tell us a little about how you became an author.
Obsession: I started writing poetry at the age of seven. One of my closest friends challenged me to write a novel in 2010; I did, and now it's my thing.
UBAWA: Many self-published authors face some sort of challenge when publishing their first book. What was your biggest challenge?
Obsession: Finding legit editors and publishers.
UBAWA: If you had to choose one category, where would writing fall for you: a hobby, a passion, a career, or a gift? Explain
Obsession: A gift. I was born to write, no question about it.
UBAWA: Some things are not for everybody. Do you think writing could apply to this statement?
Obsession: Anybody can write, but not everyone can tell a good story.
UBAWA: Do you use an outline before you write or do you just write?
Obsession: I just write
UBAWA: Many authors prefer complete silence when they're in the writing lab, how do you like to set your atmosphere?
Obsession: I can't write in complete silence; I can only write when I'm in the midst of chaos. I have to be in a noisy environment or I have to be emotionally disoriented.
UBAWA: What makes your writing style different and unique?
Obsession: My writing can't be labeled or shoved into a category. It's real, raw, funny, thought provoking, entertaining all at once.
UBAWA: Do you think it's helpful to invest money into taking writing classes and workshops or are you a self-taught writer?
Obsession: It can be helpful. I attended a writing school called, Young Chicago Authors from the age of 15-17 & it exposed me to different writing styles and different genres of writing.
UBAWA: Before you begin to write, is there some special ritual you adhere to or do you just write?
Obsession: Not at all
UBAWA: Have you ever looked at something you wrote and asked yourself, "Did I write that?!" Please do tell. : )
Obsession: Yes I have with my poetry. I've looked at several pieces and thought, "Damn, I'm dope!"
UBAWA: What's your opinion on the state of Urban Fiction? Is it an accurate depiction of real life or a bad influence on the people who read it?
Obsession: Urban fiction in my opinion is in bad shape. Authors are publishing books without any type of editing, story/character development, etc. Too many authors look at the literary game as a come up and not a passion. It seems like the same story is being written by a different author. A girl falls for a big drug dealer, then she sells her body to get what she wants because she was molested as a child, etc etc. Originality seems to be scarce.
UBAWA: Nowadays, it seems that every time you turn around, someone else has a new book out. Do you think the industry should be more stringent as to who can write and publish a book or is it fine the way it is?
Obsession: I'm not even going to touch this one lol
UBAWA: If you could give advice to an aspiring author, what would it be?
Obsession: Copyright your work before you publish it. There are a lot of grimy folks out here ready to snatch up someone's dream.
UBAWA: Before you leave, tell us one thing that you would like to be remembered by.
Obsession: I would like to be remembered as a good person and an awesome writer!
