Christina OW writes suspense, thrillers, erotica, interracial and multicultural romance books. She is the author of Contemporary, Fantasy, Paranormal, Regency Romance books and a poet of currently 3 titles. She loves reading novels that take her on a ride of wild emotions. Books have always been an escape for her, for a few hours she gets to live the lives of characters she grows to cherish and admire. She's always had an active imagination and because of it has lived in her head more than she has been in the outside world. She always imagined scenarios and wondered how they would turn out in the end, and what kind of emotions they would invoke. Thus began her writing career.
What is your favorite thing about being a writer?
When I get feedback from a reader who loved my books. Some of those messages are so uplifting I just ride cloud 9 the rest of the day.
What genre(s) do you write?
Interracial and Multicultural contemporary romance
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The writing. There is this meme about having voices in your head. For authors we need those voices, those characters, in writing the book because when they go silent, I end up staring at a blank page for hours even days. It’s not fun at all especially when there deadline is looming in the horizon.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Both. Before I begin a book, I plot it out. How I would like it to begin, the climax, the conflict and finally the ending. But sometimes the book takes a life of it’s on and the only thing that stuck to the plan was the beginning.
How long have you been a writer?
How much time did it take from writing your first book to having it published?
The first book I ever wrote just got published in January- Fate Reborn. So I would say from the first word written to publication, four and a half years.
What other careers have you had?
I have a BA in International Studies and Communications & Media, and a Diploma in Law. I worked at a law firm, and a fashion house while studying. But at the moment, I’m a writer and a fashion designer. This is where the ‘We make plans and God laughs’ joke comes in.
What else would you like readers to know about you or your work? My books are just different social scenerials and how I think I would react to them.
Has your life changed significantly since becoming a published writer?
Yes. I wasn’t much of a fan of social media but these days I spend around six hours a day engaging my fans and promoting my books.
Here are some questions just for fun.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
What kind of kid were you in school? Which social path did you take?
A loner with few friends. I liked it like that but being a twin in a private boarding school of a thousand students a year made me popular by default. I was also the team captain of our girls’ basketball team.
Do you have any pets?
No, but I’ve always wanted a dog.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you travel?
Do you have siblings? What was it like growing up with them?
Yes, a twin, and an older sister. Growing up, let’s just say complicated. No one likes to share but people seem to think just because you’re a twin, it’s a given.
What was your first car?
Don’t have one yet. I’m not much of a fan of driving either.
Do you have a favorite beverage that you drink when you write?
Orange juice and chocolate chip cookies

After a hot weekend with a mysterious woman, Damien Chan did not expect to get a frightened phone call from her, begging him to save–what? who? The call is cut before she says it. The next thing he knows, he’s become obsessed with finding her and saving her from the man that had led to their first meeting. But he never expected to find her in his cousin Dale Carson’s house… as his wife!
She finds out her nightmares are actually memories of her past life… the life of a murderer. Could she truly be the deranged Ellsa Jabari who’d almost added her own sister Ellie to the list of people she’s killed? Amnesia can be a real bitch!
His body went rigid and he bit down on his jaw in an effort to calm himself. Exploding in a jealous rage would be the wrong way to handle this situation. He needed to be patient. To get her alone and… and what? He hadn’t really thought past finding her and now that he had her right in front of him… He sat up straight with a new resolve. Now that he had her he was determined to have her back in his arms. She was his first!
He caught Dale’s eyes, narrowed in warning. Damien could practically feel his rage radiate off him in large waves toward him, but he didn’t care. He’d searched for so long, lost so much along the way, including part of his sanity, to just wish them a happy life and walk away.
“Ellie, could I speak to you for a minute—in private?” Damien stressed the last part.
Dale slowly pulled away from her and rose off the couch, seething. “No way in hell is that happening!”
Damien stood too, his anger getting the best of him. “What’s the matter Little D? Scared she’ll come back to me?”
“I was never with you,” her voice, though soft, was strong. She stood, taking Dale’s hand in hers in a show of solidarity as she stared at him with pity in her eyes. “I’m sorry but I think you have me confused with someone else.”
He slashed his hand through the air. “No, I’m not confusing you with anyone else!”
With sad eyes, Ellie looked up at Dale before turning back to him. “I do have an identical twin sister. People were confusing us for each other all the time. You’re probably—probably thinking about Ellsa.”
“Hell no! I’ve heard what Ellsa is like and she’s definitely not my Victoria Secret. But you are. I know I’m not wrong!”
He took a desperate step towards her, but Dale quickly shifted her behind him, shielding her with his body. He then held his hand up to Damien to keep him from moving any closer.
“Listen Middle D, we’ve already gone through and survived one psycho relative and it’s not an experience I’m willing to repeat. Nor is it one I’m willing to permit my family to endure again. Do you understand me?”
Damien stared down his cousin, the threat and the outstretched arm the only things keeping him where he stood. He understood alright and he couldn’t say he blamed Dale. If it were his family, he would do the same, but…
“No, she’s not!”
