Favorite past times include bonding with her children, meditating, watching movies, working out, and listening to various types of music. Other passions include web design and massage therapy. Charisma believes in establishing and nurturing one’s dreams and desires to their highest potential.
What project are you currently working on?
I just started this WIP on the 24th of Feb. (C’mon, give us a hint!) Oh, alright. If you insist! Lol It’s a contemporary piece called The Office Manager. Actually, I need to decide between that title or “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”. Both are befitting of the story. My heroine, Wanda Taylor, an office manager has the hots for one of her district managers from her office. Strong sexual tension has sizzled between them for two years, however, neither acted on their instincts. Finally, John Murphy makes his move on her and they start dating. Wanda discovers he isn’t the person she thought him to be. One day, she has a rude awakening…..
What is your favorite snack? Sour cream & onion Utz potato chips with sour cream & onion dip.
I have heard from numerous authors that chocolate is the staple of their diet. Is it in yours? Yes, peanut butter cups!
Who or what influences you when you write? Music, old stories from my great aunts, along with some meditation. Some real life experiences.

Is there a genre of book you would like to write but haven’t yet? Yes, Westerns and Sci Fi
What is your favorite movie of all time? That’s a tough one, because I have many movie favorites of all time. Okay, I’m going to go with Titanic. I always get misty eyed at the end. Also, I get goose bumps when Rose dies in her sleep and her spirit returns to the wreck where her “true love” awaits her.

Do you have a celebrity crush? Yes, Hugh Jackman. ; )
Out of all your books, do you have a favorite one? If not, then which one is closest to.
An Average Vampire and The Office Manager.
What character out of all your books is the closest to your personality? Wanda Taylor.
How much does reader response mean to you over your books?
Plenty. I want to know what readers want and will strive to improve my writing.
What do you hope readers get from your books after they read them?
A brief moment away from the everyday hustle & bustle of life. Also, some of my WIPs are a little more reality based although paranormal is sprinkled within. The Office Manager has a message, beauty is only skin deep and should not be based on how a person looks. Usually, we lust after someone because they are handsome or beautiful. You don’t realize how much of an ass they can be until you have a rude awakening. I just started this story and would like readers to have something to look forward to.
What is your favorite color besides YELLOW? I love BLACK!!
Boxers or briefs? Briefs
