Cash just wanted to graduate but after his father cut him for screwing up in school, he had no more money and only one semester left. Three opportunities presented themselves and Cash accepted all of them.
One would require him to work with the sassy TA;
The second was degrading;
And the third would end any chance of graduating if he was ever caught.
Find out what happens when this F student applies himself in more ways than one.
Stay tuned for The D Student, The C Student, The B Student and The A Student.

Interview with Xyla Turner

What inspired you to write The F Student?
I decided to write The F Student after drafting a short story about a college student and a professor. I have a knack to write series, so I kept wanting to connect the student in the short story to my Love Under Attack, Far Rockaway University series. This made me think of the antagonist in that book and the students she could use to do her bidding.
That was how the A, B, C, D, F Student series was born and I started with F, just to switch the style up.
When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?
I don’t think I knew when I wanted to be a writer. I wrote some things as a teenager and my mom thought I could write a decent story. My imagination is always running, hence I still sleep with doors closed and no feet hanging off the bed because I want to be sure IT, the killer clown, doesn’t get me. So, five years ago, I decided to start writing and published a book. Then I entered into the world of Christina Lauren and loved the male and female points of view and once I put pen to paper, I haven’t turned back yet.
What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?
My mom was huge on reading but the first book I remember reading and nearly reciting was Horton, Hears a Who. We had the tape and I knew every single word.
What genre of books do you enjoy reading?
I love romance. Hands down, I love a good romance story.
What is your favorite book?
My favorite book to date is Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley. This is a toss-up between Crossfire by Maya Banks.
You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?
I’m going to have to go with Kristen Ashley. I love her books and all of her series. Her heroes and heroines are people I feel like I know or can identify with. They are quirky, make mistakes, laugh, take things seriously and personal. I love her men and the women could all be my friends.
If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?
I would travel to the March on Washington to hear Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s I Have a Dream Speech. To be a part of a movement that has shaped this nation would be priceless.
When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?
Writing comes easy for me. Especially writing about something that is on my heart or I’m excited about. I will zone out everything and write that story. It becomes hard when I have to force it or I’m on a deadline. I get frustrated and the characters don’t speak as freely.
Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?
No, I used to have a Pug. She was a cutey but after moving to New York, working a 9-5 and writing the rest of the time. There’s no time for other things.
What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?
I’d have to say seafood. I’m all about crabs, especially.
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Branding, networking, and promoting are essential elements for a new author.
