Phoenix C. Brown is sitting in the author spotlight today! Phoenix is another of my wonderful online buddies.
She is the author of two contemporary fiction novels, Beautifully Imperfect and All that Matters in the End and two short stories, Damaged Goods (urban) and Tangled (erotica).
A California native, Phoenix spread her childhood between two cities that she loves; Long Beach and Riverside. Growing up she was a shy person who spent a lot of her time reading and writing. She credits her high school teacher, Erin Gruwell, as the person who lit the fire under her to eventually publish her novels. After she was rejected by a few publishing companies she refused to let them telling her "no" deter her from her dreams. She believes that God has a purpose for her and all she wants to do is fulfill it. Her advice to other inspiring authors/writers is to keep the faith and never give up on your dreams because if it's for you...then HE will make a way. She resides in Anaheim, CA with her husband and two sons.

Excerpt from Beautifully ImperfectRebecca
“You’re still mad at me?” He stopped watching the game to study my face.
“Yes and I probably will be for a while.” I started picking up the clothes he had left on the floor after his shower. “You need to learn how to pick up after yourself.”
“I was going to get to those later but right now I want my wife to come and lay down with me.” He pulled me down beside him on the bed and moved his body on top of mine.
“What can I do to make it up to you baby?” He murmured as he began kissing my neck. I was about to reply when the phone rang.
“Ignore it.” He said as he kept kissing me.
I wanted to give into temptation but I knew Natalie would just keep calling if I didn’t answer. I picked up the phone and covered the receiver. “Give me ten minutes and you can have the rest of the night to make it up to me.”
I smacked him on the butt as he walked out of the room frustrated.
“This better be good girl.” I leaned back on the bed to prepare for the next chapter in my best friend's life. “Malik was ready to get it on.” I giggled. “Hello?” I could hear breathing on the other end. “Natalie?”
“No, this isn’t Natalie. Can I speak to Malik please?” The woman’s voice on the other end didn’t sound familiar. I checked the caller id and the number was showing as unknown.
“Who is this?” I glanced at the clock on the dresser and saw that it was a quarter to ten.
“Jennifer.” She responded with an attitude.
“And what is this about Jennifer?” I questioned as I walked into the kitchen where Malik was warming up leftovers. The expression on his face left a bad feeling in my heart.
“This is between me and Malik.” She answered with annoyance. “But if you really need to know.” She paused. “I'm calling regarding our child.”
