BEVERLY: I normally set aside one hour a day to write, and I enjoy writing in the mornings.
VBD: What inspired your latest book, The One Whom My Soul Loves?
BEVERLY: The realization of soulmates and true love. The story begins as two people from different backgrounds unexpectedly falls in love.

Once you experience it, you know what it feels like to have it slip away.
