Struggles of the Women Folk
Brief synopsis of your book:
This is the story of a young black girl growing up in the South in the 1940’s who dreams of a better life. Through her story, she shares her heartaches, loss, romance and relationship with God. The one constant is her faith. Don’t expect a “clean” Christian novel. The dialogue is authentic, raw and engaging.
Current book or project you’re working on: Sequel to Struggles of the Women Folk. So new, it does not have a title yet.
What was the inspiration for your novel? My readers are my inspiration. They are ALWAYS asking for more and I want to give it to them!
Please share three interesting facts about your book which are not covered in the synopsis.
1. There are lots of twists and turns.
2. You’ll need to get your tissues out.
3. The cover is based on a painting that I did years ago, with no knowledge of its future use.
Are there any characters in your book that remind you of yourself?
I see myself in all my characters…Either the person I am or the person I could be under similar circumstances.
What genre does your book fall into? Inspirational storyteller.
Which genres do you write? Fiction and non-fiction.
Have you ever read a book you couldn’t finish reading? It’s getting easier to publish now days. Like anything else, some have skill, others do not.
Do you read a book, while you are writing a book? Sometimes, I feel that I need to take a break from my writing. When this happens, yes, I catch-up on my reading.
How many books have you written? Which book is your favourite and why? So far, there are three. A Life Not My Own was my 1st, Struggles of the Women Folk-recently released, and Just Between Us –a short story collection that I contributed to with several amazing independent authors.
