Author Interview with @NanaPrah - Destiny Mine Blog Tour @DecadentPub

Welcome Nana! Can you tell us a little about yourself and what you write?

I’m a nursing teacher by profession, but I’m a writer for the love of it. If you need to know one thing about me, it’s that I love chocolate. Like Forest Gump mentioned all types of shrimp, I can go on and on about chocolate. But I’d rather just eat it.

I write multicultural contemporary romance. My books used to be mainly sweet, but with my latest release, Destiny Mine, I’ve gotten a little spicy.

Where do you get your writing inspiration?
Sometimes a story idea pops into my head. I have no idea where it comes from, but I’ll give the credit to my muse, who is fabulous. Other times it’s from observing people and wondering about their lives.

What do like to do when you’re not writing?
I love to read. I also like to do the social thing on occasion and hang out with my friends and family. And you may think me strange, but I love to exercise. Yes I’m a bit overweight (see the answer to question one as to why), but I love moving my body, either through aerobics, dancing, walking, or karate, I’m always on the move.

What does a typical writing day look like for you?
I work full time so when I come home, I do a work out to get the adrenaline pumping, get a bite to eat, and then I sit down at my computer and write. Even on the days I don’t work, I find that my best time for writing is the evenings.

What is your favorite part of writing?
Letting my fingers fly across the keyboard. I’m a pantser (no outline for me) and I allow the story and characters to take me where they want.

What is the hardest part?
Editing. Sometimes my characters don’t take me to good places and lots of revision has to be done. I know that editing is a good thing, but it’s also a lot of work.

Do you have a new or upcoming release you can share with us?
The second book in the Destiny Series, Destiny Mine, has just been released. I loved writing this book. Not only are the hero and heroine fun characters, but I got to hang out again with my beloved characters from book one of the series.

Extraordinary midwife, Esi Darfour, is looking to get married.  She’s a master matchmaker but has no luck when it comes to her love life and has yet to find a man worthy of her. Until she has to deal with gorgeous Dr. Adam Quarshie outside of work.

Adam is a player who refuses to get married—ever. His interest lies more in getting her into bed than in having any kind of committed relationship. Esi’s matchmaker instincts warn her to run in the other direction as quickly as possible, but her heart insists she stay…get closer…and see if what they feel for each other can change his mind.

Enjoy the following excerpt for Destiny Mine:

Her gaze travelled down his muscular body. Unlike many of the other doctors who tended to gain a belly as they grew older and settled into the comforts of married life, Adam Quarshie could overshadow any man in his late twenties. His stomach had remained flat and his muscles
strained against his yellow button-down shirt when he moved.

She took her time raking her gaze up his body and to his face. Her gasp of embarrassment stuck in her throat as her eyes met his.

Why did he have to have such an adorable grin? God could’ve at least rotted his teeth to save the hearts of women all over Ghana.

“See something you like, Esi?”

She cleared her throat. “Yes, I do. Your shoes are nice. Where can I get a pair for my brother?”

He chuckled. “My shoes. Hmm. I got them on Oxford Street in Osu.”


He moved towards her, and she refused to step back as he crowded her. He smelled amazing, like he was fresh from a shower. She struggled not to move closer or inhale deeper.

“Or I could take you.” His voice came out soft yet had a distinct rumble.

Did the man not know how to be anything but seductive?

If she checked her pulse, she knew it would be way above the normal range. She snorted as she stepped around him and went to the patient’s bedside. “I’m going home. You did a great job.” She tilted her head to view the child’s face cradled in the new mother’s arms then smiled at the newborn’s mother. “You were able to gather the strength to push the baby out. You are a strong woman, Ama.”

The woman ducked her head. “Thank you.”

Esi turned to Adam, not bothering to hide her annoyance. “Are there any other patients you want to see?”

“I’ll come back to do ward rounds later. How about going to Osu?”

“I’d rather…rather….” Fatigue had blocked her brain. Later on in the day, long after it was too late, she’d think of any number of things she could have said to put him in his place.

He raised an eyebrow. Their perfect arch sat over slanted dark brown eyes. “You’d rather what?”

“Eat a live snail.”

He scrunched his face. “Disgusting. No Osu for you, then. Next time, I’ll ask to take you somewhere that won’t make you prefer eating something raw and slimy over hanging out with me.”

“No such place exists, Quarshie.” They walked, rather, she stalked while he strutted, down the hallway towards the nurse’s station.

“I’m sure there is somewhere, and one day I’m going to take you there.”

She didn’t bother to look at him. “In your dreams.”

He winked. “Always in my dreams.”

Her heart skipped a beat as Sade’s classic song “Smooth Operator” came to mind. She regarded him through narrowed eyes as he headed towards the door. His heartbreaking ways didn’t appeal to her at all. Everyone knew relationships weren’t his thing. She’d never even consider going out on a date with him. She knew too many casualties of his charm. The type of guy who would go to all sorts of lengths to get a woman on his radar. Once he caught and used her, he moved to the next one…or two. After having once dated a womanizer, she wouldn’t subject herself to that kind of man again.

No way. Not her. Never

  1. Thanks for having me on your blog Sara. I read your medical romance Captivating the CEO and loved it. Heart conditions are my favorite (due to personal reasons), and you were so accurate in writing about it. Midwifery is the theme in Destiny Mine and I hope people get a glimpse into what they do when they read it.

    1. Nana, I'm honored to be part of your blog tour. Thanks for spotting by. Thank you for your kind words about Captivating the CEO. It is a very special book for me, and heart conditions are a personal issue for me too. <3
