NefretitisandframePEN’Ashe Magazine: How long have you been a published author?

Nefretiti Morant: I published my first novel in 2013, so it’s been three years. Looking back on what I’ve been able to accomplish since then is pretty cool. When I started my poetry blog in 2012 my intention was to blog in a fun and creative way. I’m grateful that I had the courage to take that first step. Sometimes that’s all it takes.

PM: Describe your writing process.

NM: I wake up early everyday and try to get at least one hour of writing in before I head out to work (Yes I have a day job).

PM: How many books have you published?

NM: I’ve published ten books and written eleven.

PM: Are you a full-time Author? If not, what struggles keep you from doing your craft full-time?

NM: I’m not a full time writer, but I don’t consider this to be a struggle. I love writing and I’m dedicated to improving my character building, my outlines and my plot twist. Way I see it; writing only strengthens my craft and the possibility that I will become a full time author, one day.

PM: How do you market your work?

NM: Mostly through my blog, social media and interviews. I also hand out flyers and sell books at various events.

PM: What can we expect from you in 2016?

NM: My upcoming novel; Next Stop Harlem is set in Virginia, 1929. It’s about a young, bi-racial girl named Penny Nichols. Penny dreams of moving to New York and singing in a Jazz Club. I’m really excited about this work.

PM: What advice do you have for up and coming authors?

NM: If you really love writing, write. Put your all into it, believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to go the distance.
