K.L. Roby's "Rev. Curtis Black" Is Fan Favorite

Felicia Pride, who blogs at AOL's More Than Words recently asked best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby about the appeal of her notorious character Rev. Curtis Black.

"Why are hundreds of thousands of readers so interested in the dirty dealings of this character – and of the public personas his acts are based upon?"

[Roby responds] "I think it's because they know him personally. Curtis Black is a fictitious character but he is very much alive and well throughout this entire country. I think my readers continue to want more of him because they want two things: For him to reap what he has sown and for him to hopefully one day find true redemption. My readers definitely love to hate him, but in the end, it's my belief that they want to see him finally do the right thing."

Rev. Curtis Black returns to library shelves in Roby's latest, LOVE & LIES (William Morrow, 2007).
