Q.: What inspired you to write romance?
A.: Becoming a writer was never something I was particularly interested in or even considered doing. Honestly, I was content being an avid romance reader.

Lidia, a novel by Akil N. DeBerry. (Opening lines v.002) “They were a feat of arrogance, of pride, of hope; and yet it was only after the world had died around them that they had truly took hold. Fire would barely scorch them and poisons only killed few, and seemed, with each of their dying breaths, they whispered somehow to the other, the secrets of servival. They were the Goliaths, trees engineered from countless others to save a world that no longer was, or ever would be again. And here, where once long ago a city unparalleled stood, they now conquered.”

Welcome To My Site!
I grew up in a small mountain community in the beautiful California Sierras. I have eight sisters and one brother. My love of romance novels started early on and I often times found myself lost in the authors version of life and love. It was then that I knew I would one day write romance. Thirty three years, one husband and four grand-babies later I finally sat down to my lap top and started writing.
My fist manuscript still sits in a drawer and one day I might submit it. My next three manuscripts were soon published. My current projects are well under way and I can hardly wait to share them with my readers.
After attending college in the 80’s I began a long career working with medical insurance, and now after what seems like a lifetime, I am able to work on my goals as a romance and horror/fantasy novelist.

Wealthy, Famous, Sexy, Successful, The “Boyz” Got It Going On … Or So It Would Seem.
There are no siblings more charmed than the Wilson brothers of Ladera Heights, California. Fine and famous pro golfer Mason has money, respect, a beautiful, loving wife and two wonderful teenage children. Claude’s the most successful realtor in the “Black Beverly Hills.” And handsome, carefree “baby boy” Torino, who runs big brother Mason’s club, Foreplay, can pick and choose the honeys he wants to share his time and his bed with. But beneath the surface of ideal lives are secrets that could shatter three perfect dreams and shake a family to its core. Legacies of loss and obligation, of tragedy and madness, threaten everything the Wilsons have worked so hard to achieve, exposing deep, raw, and devastating wounds that an outside world cannot see — wounds that can be healed only through honesty and love. From the phenomenal author of “The Chocolate Ship” comes a gripping and powerful novel of passion, commitment, intrigue, and family that will not be easily forgotten by anyone who gets lost in its pages.
