A Female Dog Created by Diamond J
At only 27 year’s old, Sandra is married to a great man, Lance and has a wonderful home and a great career. To people on the outside looking in, she’s living the American Dream. What most people don’t know is that Sandra is juggling two other men outside of her marriage, Derrick and Jay.
Derrick is tall dark and handsome in every sense of the sentence and has every intention on stealing her heart away from her loving husband, but grows impatient as Sandra toggles back and forth with her reckless decision making and inconsiderate ways.
An already in love Sandra catches the eye of a new-comer in town, Jay. The man is young, spontaneous, adventurous with an edge and an addiction to adrenaline. The rabbit hole runs deeper and deeper with Jay as she learns that he isn’t who she thought he was in the beginning.
Sandra is slowly falling for her outside flings but still makes time to be a wife to a loving Lance who often stays home lonely on late nights while his wife makes excuses to leave. He too grows impatient and starts to develop a wondering eye but tries to hold it together for the sake of his marriage.
Sandra is willing to do just about anything without getting caught but what will she do about Lance who’s been by her side every step of the way? The deeper she goes with Derrick and Jay, she learns what infidelity really means. Sandra believes that since she is a woman and smarter than a man, she won’t get caught.
Getting it together and keeping it together test the balance of Sandra’s sanity because at any given moment, her whole world could fall apart by the slip of a tongue. Will she suffer the consequences of her actions or will she be able to take these skeletons to her grave?
The inside on this story
***NO SPOILER ALERTS***
Many novels have been written where it’s the man that’s the no good player and can’t control his urge for a fine woman or two. We’ve all read them and even expect them on the shelves because the man being the bad guy has become the fictional norm.
A Female Dog is exactly what the title states. It’s a tale about a woman who can’t be faithful and falls head first in her own dog sh*t!
Diamond J did an amazing job setting up the scene for the outcome of the novel. With the different personalities of the main characters in the book, a fire is bound to take place with the dangerous mix of Sandra’s infidelity.
This was an intriguing read because it was fictional, but realistic in a suspenseful way. There’s always consequences to face with every decision that’s made. Unfortunately, Sandra may be faced with her own dose of karma sooner than expected.
I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen next because Diamond J left her readers flipping through Kindle to see if there’s more just when the book got juicy. That’s okay though because that just means it’s going to make for a fire sequel!
Stay tuned, readers – you don’t want to miss out on A Female Dog and the drama that’s brewing in this story!
An interview with Diamond J
SS: Thank you for giving me the pleasure of reading your exciting novel. I’m curious and I’m sure other readers are curious, where are you from?
DJ: I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH.
SS: Oh, how nice to interview a fellow Ohio native. I’m from Columbus, myself. So, tell me, how has your environment, upbringing, where you live, influenced your writing?
DJ: The environment I grew up in was very loving, nurturing, and supportive. I come from a close knit family.
SS: What was your job, or what were you doing before you started writing full time?
DJ: I currently work for Cleveland Clinic, but I write full time as well.
SS: What started you on the path to writing?
DJ: What started me on the path to writing was I always had a wild imagination and I love the fact that I can be in control when I write. I can make things happen and not happen. It’s like I control the whole world in that book. I’ve always been creative and writing is a way for me to express my creative license.
SS: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
DJ: I first realized that I wanted to be a writer when I was reading Triple Crown Publications books at only 14 years old. 🙂 The authors were and are PHENOMENAL. When I read the stories they wrote, I could picture every single detail and I told myself that one day I want to be able to paint a whole picture with just black words on a cream piece of paper.
SS: How long have you been writing?
DJ: I have been writing for about three years. I wrote short plays and short stories for TRI-C and the youth would act them out on stage.
SS: How did you come up with the idea for your book?
DJ: When I came up with the idea of A Female Dog, it was thought out very carefully because I wanted to pick my reader’s brain. A lot of the books I’ve read have a Sandra but the Sandra is male. I wanted my book to be different. I wanted to paint another picture with a different point of view. Over the years, I’ve read books that always paint the male as the bad guy, the cheater, or the manipulator. I wanted a woman to take on the same role. I read that if you don’t see the type of book you want to see on the shelves, then you need to write it.
SS: What’s the main thing you want readers to take away from your book?
DJ: The main thing I want readers to take away from my book is a better understanding of how so quickly the shoe can be on the other foot. It’s so easy to point out someone else’s flaws when you’re not looking at your own. Women aren’t always innocent. Some women can really take the role of a man. When my readers read my book, I want them to feel like they can write a book, too. It took a lot of courage for me to write and publish on my own, but in the end, it’s all worth it.
SS: What are you working on now?
DJ: Currently, I’m working on a A Female Dog 2.
SS: What do your plans for future projects include?
DJ: Other future projects include more writing and more publishing. I would like to have four more books published by the end of the year.
SS: Awesome! Once again, thank you so much Diamond J for allowing me the opportunity to get to know you and read your debut novel, A Female Dog. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel.
