Audra Russell chats with romance author DL White.

For as long as she can remember, romance author DL White would much rather be in her room reading and writing than doing anything else, but she only began seriously pursuing a writing career in 2011. She writes romantic women’s fiction featuring Black men and women.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, DL loves coffee and Sunday Brunch, especially on a patio, but her true obsession is water— lakes, rivers, oceans, waterfalls! And sand… dig your toes in, soft! On the weekend, you’ll probably find her near water and if she’s lucky, on an ocean beach.

By day she is an Executive Administrative Assistant for a billion dollar beverage brand. By night, when she’s not writing books, she’s devouring them. She blogs her reviews and thoughts on writing at

We have a lively chat about her books, some of her characters and this crazy writing life.

So get ready for some laughs, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy!
