What does your ideal writing space look like?

It depends on the scene I am writing as I have found inspiration while driving, or in the middle of the night in my bedroom. I am more creative though in solitude. 

If your book was turned into a movie, who would play your main characters?

Interesting question, let's see because the book as an Afro-Caribbean theme and backdrop I’d say Taye Diggs or Lance Gross as the main male lead and either Meagan Good or Keke Palmer as the female lead

You’re stranded on an island, and only one character from any book can save you. Who are you picking?

I’d say James Bond, since Jamaica is the birthplace of the Bond series.
