Please welcome Deatri King-Bey to the blog! She’s here to promote her book The Impossible Possible.
Tell us about yourself.
I married my hero twenty-six years ago. We met on Dec. 27 and he declared we’d be married the following Jan. 4—and I believed him, but didn’t tell him that. My family is my life. I’m an avid reader, so my children grew up hearing and reading books. They still read—YEAH! I’m also a systems analysts who liked to write romance and dangerously sexy-suspense. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
What is the most romantic gesture you’ve ever received?
My hubby and I aren’t romantic in the traditional sense. We don’t even remember our anniversary. The kids point it out. Who am I kidding? We aren’t romantic in any sense of the word. But every week my husband gives me a surprise. Nothing big. It used to be some sort of caramel (I’m a caramel-aholic). He’d order different types and search out different places/kinds to buy for me. Since I got braces, he has to come up with something else. So our romance is ongoing. It’s the small things that show he loves me that are romantic.
When is your favorite time of the day to make love?
I like being woken right before I naturally wake up, so I guess early morning.
What are your pet peeves?
People who don’t think for themselves, then talk like they know what their talking about. Customer service representatives that treat you like you are interrupting their day. Doctor’s offices that expect you to arrive fifteen minutes early or they charge you a fee or cancel your appointment, yet they see you an hour late. I can go on and on…
What are your favorite types of movies to watch?
Romantic Comedy, Thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy…
Describe your dream date.
Sitting on the couch cuddled up with the hubby watching a movie… Yeah, I know, I’m boring.
Describe a period of time or occurrence in your life when you were completely embarrassed but can laugh about it now.
High school track meet. It was COLD outside and it was almost time for my race. I’m in the stands pulling down my sweats when I realized my pants came down also. There I was in my Sunday bloomers on a Thursday (yes, my undies had the days of the week on them). A teen, I thought my life was over. As you see, I survived.
What dish, when you prepare it, has everyone asking for seconds?
I make excellent grilled sandwiches. People who claim they don’t eat sandwiches even ask for more.
What would be the title of the movie about your life?
Just One Of Them Days
Finish this sentence: The one thing I would like to change about myself is…
my bad feet. This is just ridiculous.
What was the nicest comment or most interesting question you’ve received from a reader?
Here’s an interesting one. Are your books about you? I always answer as if they’d meant to ask if I put a part of myself in my characters, which I do.
Bryanna Martin has given up on finding her happily ever after. The only way she’ll fall in love and marry is if God sends her Mr. Right to her door.

Drawn to the handsome stranger, Bryanna wonders if this is one impossible that can become possible.

When he arrives, he discovers his child is not in foster care being abused, but in the loving care of a golden goddess. To spare his son from losing the only mother he has ever known, Alejandro decides to remain silent about his son’s paternity and pursue Bryanna, but then the impossible happens. He falls in love and knows she will leave him if she discovers his secret.
