3Ws – Rolonda Watts

Rolonda author shot high res

What do you create?

Whether through my new novel (Destiny Lingers), my news stories (with Dr. Drew on HLN), podcasts, paintings, acting (will be on BounceTV’s “In the Cut”), stand-up comedy (will be at The Comedy Store on April 1), voice-over work (as Professor Wiseman on “Curious George,” announcer on “Divorce Court,” and Warrior Priestess Illaoi on League of Legends video game), or speeches, I create good stories that enlighten, inform, entertain, and hopefully move people in a positive way.


Why do you create?

I create because I just can’t stop! I’m like an energizer bunny; always looking for a creative challenge. Hey – they don’t call me Watts for nuthin’! LOL! But, truly, it’s what I’m here to do. I create because it is my joy and honor to serve the process. I believe that God gives us all many gifts; our gift back to God is to use them for good. I believe that all of my arts and crafts are vehicles through which God can further express Him/Herself. Creating is the ultimate in living.


What do you consume?

I consume wisdom, inspiring conversations, and remarkable quotes and memorable stories from my elders and other really smart people. I consume good food (Southern, Italian, Mediterranean), hearty laughter, and lifelong friends. I also consume any chance to lay on a beach and write, particularly in the Caribbean or on Topsail Island, NC, where I wrote Destiny Lingers.
