He has the world at his feet, until a platter of temptation is served. But will his desires cost him more than his heart can afford?
Stroll into Belle Aires and mingle with the area’s finest to find out if it’s real or just A Fantasy of Love.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write A Fantasy of Love?
Loretta Walls: The concept to write A Fantasy of Love came from my love of reading. I was reading books my mom read and two novels sealed the deal for me: Hollywood Wives by Jackie Collins and Secrets by Danielle Steel.
JP: What sets A Fantasy of Love apart from other novels in its genre?
LW: A Fantasy of Love sets itself apart from a standard novel with wealthy characters by having the characters interact with real, everyday life things we all endure.Â Hatred, jealousy, deceit and on a personal level, not just using others to do their dirty deeds for them. These characters handle their own business! I call my work Original Urban Romance for that very reason.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that lead to A Fantasy of Love getting out to the public?
LW: From an author’s standpoint, one must always promote themselves and their work. You never know who you’re going to meet. I talk to strangers in the street all the way up to those carrying a novel in their hands. If they don’t read what I write, they might know someone who would. I’m not missing that opportunity!
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish A Fantasy of Love?
LW: My writing process might be a bit shorter than usual since my novels were written years ago. I usually allow a full year to re-write and ‘grow’ my characters into their current day status. A Fantasy of Love took about a year to re-write and culture the characters the way I wanted them showcased.
JP: What’s next for Loretta Walls?
LW: Up next is my fourth novel titled, The Office which is based around a perfume company and the employees that work for it. From the CEO to the plant floor, drama is etched into this novel! I am also preparing my authors for their debut releases under the Nu Cherte Publishing logo.
