Author of the Week - V Anthony Rivers

Monday, May 01, 2006

Shelia Goss: Please introduce yourself to the readers.
V. Anthony Rivers: I'm V. Anthony Rivers, author of My Life Is All I Have. Previous releases include Daughter By Spirit, Everybody Got Issues, Sistergirls.com, and Chocolate Flava. Stay tuned for Love Is Never Painless and an epic story called Until Again.

Shelia: Do you find it difficult to write female characters vs. your male characters?
Actually, I've struggled more with writing the male characters for some reason. I'm not even sure why but I guess it has to do with loving women with a passion to the point where I'm constantly creating ladies that I wish I could meet; even the ones that are flawed. Then of course, there are characters that I've created which are actually a combination of several women that I know. I'm working on a new story right now in which physically she represents the image of a young lady that I've had romantic intentions for but mentally she represents who I wish she will eventually become (if that makes any sense). *smile* As far as my male characters go, I basically like to create a serious male to go along with a more comical male character. I love it when you have one man who acts as if he knows everything and another fella whose wisdom sneaks up on you... I love creating best friends (male) with great camaraderie whenever possible.
