Author Mo Flames

 

Mo Flames


Tell us about yourself.

    I was born and raised in Hopkins, SC. When I graduated from high school, I moved to Georgia for about a year before relocating to New Jersey where I lived for 20 years until 2016. I returned to Georgia where I currently reside in the suburbs with my husband and daughter. By day, I’m a Regulatory Affairs consultant in the pharmaceutical industry. Whenever I’m not writing, I’m enjoying the free time with family and friends, traveling, in other authors’ worlds, or playing The Sims.  


Tell us about your featured book. 

    One Is Enough is the highly anticipated, book three and final installment to the scandalous Enough Series. It's a steamy contemporary romantic suspense that, like the books preceding it, One Is Enough will keep readers on the edge of their seats. After surviving a near-fatal accident, we learn what happens to our main character, Desiree Edwards, and her new lover, Derrik Carter as well as who the father of her baby is.


When did you start writing?

    Since I could hold a pencil and my dad had me practicing on that beige, kindergarten-lined writing paper. I’ve always enjoyed telling stories and English was my favorite subject. However, I didn’t get serious about writing until I published my first blog on MySpace in 2006. 


What comes first, the plot or characters?

    For me, the characters come first. Once I know who will be in the story, the plot starts to develop.


What advice would you give a new writer, someone just starting out?

    Find a community of like-minded writers that will support your writing goals. Sprint daily - use a method that works best, but I would suggest the Pomodoro Technique. Get with a mentor. Give yourself lots of grace and room to fail, but never give up if this is your passion.


What is the most difficult part about writing for you?

    Finding all the right words to express what I’m trying to say. Sometimes it comes right out and other days I can get stuck on description. A thesaurus doesn’t always help either.


Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

    No, not really. I’ve practiced techniques to keep my creative juices flowing.


Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?

    No, I don’t want them to stand on their own. That’s a lonely feeling. Each of my books will have connections. Since all the scandal and drama began with the Enough Series in Atlanta, my goal is to interconnect the families and friends. For every character I create, there will be a direct tie to someone from that cast. Hey, I’m building a world within a world. 


As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

    The phoenix – it symbolizes hope, courage, resurrection, renewal, and immortality. 


What would you like to say to your readers?    

    I love y’all like I love tacos and if you know me, I freaking love them! Thank you for rocking with me this long. I appreciate all the support you’ve shown me since I got back to what I love doing the most – writing and entertaining y’all. If you just got here, stick around. I’m just getting started. There’s a whole lot more to come…literally!
