Tucker Davis is an Atlanta native and often describes herself as a Grady baby. (If you are from Atlanta you know exactly what she means!) She has had a love of writing since she was in high school. Tucker, a naturally risk adverse person, often lived her adventures through reading. She even blames her poor eyesight on sneaking to read books in the darkness of her bedroom when she was supposed to be asleep.
It wasn't until she discovered authors like John Grissom, Terry McMillan, Brenda Jackson, Kayla Perrin and Rochelle Alers that her desire to tell her own stories was fed. She decided it was time to share the stories she allowed to play out in her mind. Thus, she penned her first novel, Misplaced Desires, which will be published in 2012 under the Twisted Pleasures series.
With life things happen and our paths are altered. More specifically, Tucker became engrossed in bearing and raising her children, climbing the corporate ladder and battling breast cancer. These crossroads changed her plans to publish her first novel a bit, but they did not deter her.
Her first published novel Derrin's Hot Pursuit brings to life the story of Derrin, the first of five African-American men who, for varying reasons, want to avoid long term commitments and falling love. It is their fear of losing the women they have unexpectedly began to adore, that drives them to confront their fears head on. Take the journey with Tucker Davis as we follow Derrin, Marcus, Calvin, Jared, and Ennis when they chase love.
