Reader of the Spotlight

AYESHA BRACK ROLLINS

What would authors do without readers?

I want to celebrate the ladies and gentlemen that buy our books and support authors. Because of them I have not given up on my dream. This is a small way of me saying thank you!

I had the pleasure of interviewing a wonderful Reader… Mrs. Ayesha Brack Rollins! She has worked as a healthcare professional for the last 23 years… She Love’s God, music, books, and all thing cute and cuddly. I had to ask her what cute and cuddly things did she mean… lol. Dogs, babies, guinea pigs (most animals, cats and snakes are an exception) and Power Puff Girls.

  1. Outside of reading what do you like to do? Other than reading, I enjoy cooking, baking, listening to music, spending time with family and friends, playing video games, traveling… pretty boring stuff.
  2. Favorite book you’ve read last year? My favorite book I’ve read last year was Gravity: Free falling Book 1 by Raven St. Pierre.
  3. What is your all-time favorite book? My all-time favorite book/ It would have to be a tie between The Zero Hour by Joseph Finder, and The Winner by David Baldacci.
  4. Favorite place to read? My favorite place to read is in bed, with my dog Bella curled up beside me.
  5. What makes you love a book? What makes me LOVE a book is well-developed, likeable characters, a believable plot. A good book makes me think of the characters as being living, breathing people, not just characters in a book
  6. What will inspire you to recommend a book? I recommend a book when it leaves me thinking about it for days after reading it, or when something in the book makes me think about things that are happening in my life.
  7. Favorite genre? I don’t really have a favorite genre, but I prefer IR fiction, romantic suspense, and political thrillers.
  8. What is your all-time favorite book? My all-time favorite book/ It would have to be a tie between The Zero Hour by Joseph Finder, and The Winner by David Baldacci.What are you reading right now?Right now, I’m reading Leather and Lace by Sondra Wells.
  9. Do you have a reading snack? In general, I don’t eat when I read, but I do tend to keep a cup of iced water, or peach iced tea at the bedside.
  10. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews? I don’t think it’s necessary to give a bad review. I think the best way to give a review is to praise the good points, mention what you didn’t like, but don’t say it in a way that discourages. Negative things should be mentioned in a way to encourage improvement, not to discourage the writer from writing. If they’re truly bad, it’s best to personally address the author, vs writing a bad review.
  11. How many books do you usually read in a month? I read 3-5 books a week, unless it’s a really busy week with work and the children. I guess that’s an average of 15-20 books a month… keeping in mind, some of these are novellas.
  12. The longest you’ve gone without reading? I don’t know that I’ve ever NOT been reading! I started at 4, and haven’t stopped since! I’ve found that if I don’t have a book in my hand, I’m reading cereal boxes, or magazines.
  13. What would cause you to stop reading a book halfway through? I would stop reading a book halfway through or less if I couldn’t identify with the characters, the plot wasn’t believable, or if there were grammatical errors that made it too difficult to read.
  14. Name a book that made you angry? A book that made me angry? One book stands out>>> His Black Experiment. This book was short, written in the 3rd person, had good characters, but was poorly written… and I HATE books that you can finish in one sitting on the toilet!!
  15. Who are your favorite authors? Many! Jeffery Deavers, David Baldacci, Lena Matthews, you , of course.. Latrivia Nelson, Kassanna , Pepper Pace

Mrs. Ayesha thank you for finding time in your busy schedule… I appreciate you and all the wonderful readers… until next week.

I'm a romance author who believes love is colorblind, but not blinded to injustice. You can't help who you love regardless of their race. Making my words come to life is my passion. Join my couples as they navigate through trials and come out stronger in the end. Love is never easy but it's worth all the hard work.
