Fun Fact Interview:

1.  Why did you start writing?   Writing is and has always been a means of expressing myself. It also serves as an escape and an outlet. The older and more experienced I became, I realized people actually enjoyed reading my words, thoughts, and opinions – and I have a lot to say and create.

2.  What's your favorite book of all time?    The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. I read this book when I was 8 years old and haven’t stopped reading since. I re-read this book almost 10 times throughout my childhood. My love for mysteries was realized as a result of reading this book too.

3.  Favorite Movie and why?    Daddy’s Little Girls. I love this movie, well one scene in particular, because it warmed my heart and soul. The scene is etched in my memory. I identify with the main female character played by Gabrielle Union. It was like watching my life play out on the TV.

4.  If your book was made into a movie, who do you seeing being cast for your characters?   I see Sanaa Lathan and Mike Epps as the lead characters. They both capture the essence of the main characters and would a phenomenal job.

5.  What is your favorite scene from your book, or the scene you most enjoyed writing?   My favorite scene is the end… I won’t give it away. After a lot of head shaking and screaming at the main character it all comes together at the end.

6.  Where can readers connect with you online?   Readers can connect with me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/sennysen11), Facebook (www.facebook.com/sennysen11), or on my website (www.sennysen.com).

Synopsis:
One woman's story of overcoming a marriage filled with deceit, infidelity, and abuse to living a life filled with joy, peace, and deliverance.
From Senica Evans, comes a riveting, heartbreaking, drama filled autobiographical tale of her tumultuous marriage to Spank. He is verbally and mentally abusive and can't seem to control his incessant cheating. But it didn't start that way! They met and became the best of friends. Almost inseparable from the start. As Spank's true self was slowly being revealed the relationship picked up speed and eventually began to spin out of control. She saw the signs but her desire to keep her family intact was far greater. Despite the craziness, her love for him fueled the drama fire and his selfishness was the wind that kept it ablaze. There was a lesson to be learned from all of this and she was determined to figure it out.

Excerpt:
“The butterflies were swarming and I was warming up on the inside. He sat back on the couch and began to swirl his finger around the curls in my hair. He pulled me back to him and his lips touched mine. The kiss was so passionate it sent jolts through my body. Then all of a sudden he abruptly pulled away from me. “Go ahead and finish eating. I have more planned” he said with great confidence.”
“On one of the rare occasions  he would actually open up and talk to me, he told me, “sometimes you have to put things on the back burner to get what you want. Once I got you, I moved everything from the back to the front.” This explained it all! I was just something to be conquered. He didn’t love me, not one bit. It was all a game. “
 “You’re so silly! Why aren’t you taking pictures? What woman doesn’t take pictures on vacation? You’re just walking around looking like you’re a man or something. What was the point of you bringing the camera?
I didn’t know picture taking was gender specific! If you aren’t happy with the amount of pictures I’m taking or the lack thereof you are more than welcome to take them yourself.
I’m not doing anything. You’re the woman so you are supposed to do it. I don’t know why you want to be a man so bad. Senica you aren’t a man. You can’t be the man.
Huh?!? Ok whatever Spank!”
