Random Lit... The Work of Obsession the Writer

About Obsession


Growing up on the west side of Chicago, Obsession began writing at the age of 7. Winning countless awards in her youth, it was plain to see that she was indeed gifted. Upon graduation from a young Chicago author's program, she published two poetry books by the age of 17. Obsession is currently working on her third novel and fourth poetry! She now resides on the north side of Chicago, where she teaches transitional kindergarten.

1.      If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor or which author would you mentor?

 I don't have an author in mind that I would mentor, but I do have a poet. He goes by the pen name Poetrii Love and he's extremely talented and witty, he just doesn't have the self-confidence to go with it. Once he believes in himself and tightens up his wordplay...he is going to be a major force in the poetic world.

2.      What book are you reading now?


I just read Susan Halter's "License to date" which is book #6 in her 7 book series better date than never.


3.      Out of all of the stories you’ve written so far, what would be your favorite and why?


Climatic Successions was my favorite book to write. It was straight off the dome... I freestyled it along with the sequel. Climatic is my first... my baby. I went through hell and high water to complete and publish that book, I cherish that one the most.


4.      Tell us something funny about yourself that not a lot of people know about?


I like to eat all of the folded potato chips in the bag first; I freak out when I start eating the other chips and find a folded one that I miss. God it seems like my life is over! Lol


5.      Are any of the stories you’ve written based on real life experiences or basically just from imagination?


All of my stories are 50% my life & 50% my imagination; every single one of my main characters have a piece me within them.



A self-employed young hooker working the streets of Chicago, Lydia adapts to the grimy life of prostitution easily and has no intention of walking away from the profession. That is, until one of her high paying johns Max confesses that he's madly in love with her and can offer her things that she's only dreamed of; like FREE unconditional love. When she falls victim to her lifestyle but refuses to give it up, Max takes matters into his own hands and blackmails her into choosing to turn her life around instead choosing to turn tricks.

In this romantic comedy, author Obsession delivers a humorous story of a young girls quest to discover if loving herself and somebody else is worth retiring her hooker heels.



If you were given only six months to a year to live, what would be your final good deed?
Filled with love, humor and heart stopping suspense, you will find Gail Washington; a therapist turned matchmaker diagnosed with a monstrous disease. She arranges a sensual mixer in hopes that four individuals, who are also her clients, make a love connection. Nathaniel, a head strong seductive pediatric surgeon, has never met a woman that could handle him mentally or physically; that's why Gail’s feisty secretary Zaya is perfect for him. Raven is the top male tennis player in the world. He quickly learns that with championships comes a lot of money and a lot of women; both of which he’s always had control over until he meets Morgan, a free spirited hairstylist that is drop dead gorgeous and emotionally elusive.

Will Gail live to see her last wish granted? Will they surrender their hearts and fall passionately in love with one another? Or will Gail’s final act of kindness accompany her to the grave?"



If you thought that you knew Brooklyn, Ethan, Aaron, Derricka, Thailand and Adriana… well think again. In this highly anticipated sequel to Climatic Successions, you will discover that love not only changes but exposes individuals for who they truly are. Greed… temptation… insecurities… lies and unresolved issues have created a maze that if the wrong path is chosen, it can lead to catastrophic consequences. Will they find treasures within trials and tribulations? Or will their love fail and all they've worked and wished for be in vain?

6 degrees of separation...

Satisfyingly explicit, this bona-fide narrative is plagued with humor, sex, romance, violence, devastating family secrets and more. Inspirational in its own right, this urban tale will invite readers into the lives of six individuals, who learn from one another that with love, faith, and forgiveness...peace found within will outweigh all the pain that was ever endured.

For all the poetry lovers, Obsession has two poetry books published, Verse by Verse and Memory Box: A Replay of the Mind.
