I’ll be honest…I’m shy about having others read my work. This Six Sexy Sisters series started off with a “what if” dream in my head. “What if I met and fell in love with a hot rapper?”
Pretty much from there, Icee and Kitty developed. YES, I am Kitty! Icee, one guess. Set in the Midwest? Enough said. It was actually set in St. Louis, but when I decided to make this less and less like a certain rapper, I changed locales. I kept going back and changing Icee to make him as different as possible…still have similarities….so wonder who the ex-girlfriend Bonnie is??
(I actually started combining that rapper with a certain R&B singer/actor/model/and now writer)
I was writing this for fun, never intending anyone to read it. Then as I introduced the sisters and started loving them, I wanted to know more about them. (I come from a big family as well, 3 sisters, 4 brothers). So many similarities in them and my sisters. I’m not a twin, but what I call an “almost twin” (11 months apart, we started school together and did everything together). AND one of my sisters is a fashion designer. Oh yeah, I’m a personal trainer like Kitty (but I was not at the time I created her, LOL)
From there, I have other similarities with real life people for other characters.
Take Tone, the rapper that Icee discovers. Well, he’s a certain young rapper out there now. Actually two combined. But think about a young rapper that is HOT right now, with a more established rapper as his Mentor. Also, Tone’s love story mirrors a young Hollywood couple (Fianna is based off a real celebrity as well).
Everything else is all me, all original characters. If there is a Nola Kelly out there, I want to meet her…then run scared from her. If there is a CJ Kelly out there, let me stare at the eye candy, but I won’t let his playa moves sweep me off my feet.
