Coming Full Circle

There are times in our lives when we cannot see daylight even when all the lights are on. So it is for Pastor J.T. Thomas.

Forsaken by Vanessa Miller brings its readers into the tumultuous life a man of the cloth whose fabric is riddled with holes of his past and current indiscretions. How the couple will handle the hardships of ‘roosters coming home to roost’ is one that will provoke a myriad of emotions. From beginning to end, the manifestation of how we touch others lives is vividly shown.

Vanessa Miller of Dayton, Ohio is an Essence best-selling author, playwright, and motivational speaker. Her stage productions include: Get You Some Business, Don’t Turn Your Back on God, and Can’t You Hear Them Crying and Abundant Rain.

FORSAKEN is Vanessa’s newest book. Forsaken is the story of a fallen pastor’s journey back to God. Vanessa believes that each of her books will touch readers across the country in a special way. It is, after all her God-given destiny to write novels that bring deliverance to God’s people.

Fame Anyone?

A Taste of Fame by Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson takes its reader’s on an adventure that is fun, filled with adventure and displays how strong friendships are forged.

The individuals are ones most can identify with. If we are truly honest we can admit that at one time in our life we have been them. Who are they? They are women who love Christ, but are imperfect in their walk.

In their imperfection the ladies have won a cooking contest and now must compete on national television. Their journey to and adventures in New York allow them to discover much about themselves and a world they had only read about or viewed on television.

This is a fun read and if you are into cooking you will appreciate the recipes that are included.

Come And Get It!

This companion cookbook to A Taste of Fame is good one for those looking to step away from the normal rotation of their cooking repertoire.

Beginning cooks may find some of the recipes frustrating in that some of the portions servings and ingredients are missing.

Girl, Naw! - Blog Tour

Debut author LaCricia A’ngelle has written candidly regarding the plight of the necessity for wise counsel.

Antoinette Walker, like all of us has a past.

As a counselor she readily dispensed wisdom that if heeded, could bring closure and healing. In spite of her professional prowess, Antoinette had yet to apply the same methodology to her own situation. Readers may well identify with this young wife, mother and professional struggling to remain in the present when her very real past comes to visit.

LaCricia A’ngelle does an excellent job of combining biblical truth with common sense to present very realistic counseling sessions.

Girl, Naw! Exposes the reader to the very human and vulnerable side of professionals who are viewed as having it all together, but if asked their very real response may well be – Girl, Naw!

Dialogue with the Author

Armed with the standard list of questions most interviewers keep on hand, I pondered which ones I would draw from for today’s piece.

After speaking to Ms. A’ngelle I felt a bit more secure in what I would bring forth. I did because I took off the restraints and wrote from the heart. You see, once you have spent any length of time with LaCricia A’ngelle, your heart has been forever touched by the effervescent author from Tennessee.

Effervescent – bubbling, scintillating, sparkling, sparkling, marked by high spirits. Each of the aforementioned adjectives can certainly be used to describe LaCricia. They can because she is FREE. Within that freedom she is unencumbered by the restraints that too often confine the literary prose. Because she is free she writes with abandon, wisdom, skill and the love of God. The freedom that she exudes in virtually every aspect of her life flows from her pen onto paper as entertainment securely wrapped in ministry.

To aspiring and novice authors she encourages you to step out on the gift God has entrusted to you. In doing so she cautions that there are no shortcuts and that you must take the time to learn the craft.

What the Future Holds

Author Maurice M. Gray, Jr. truly gives his readers something to ponder in his short story Long Term featured in The Soul of a Man (A Triumph of My Soul Anthology) from Peace in the Storm Publishing.

Nate Carter is the Temporary Employee Coordinator overseeing the transitory workers moving through Statebank. People coming and going is all in a days work for him. What he does not anticipate is his past returning with the intent of making the somewhat short-term assignment a long-term position in his private life.

Within the few pages you will become acquainted with two people determined to achieve personal goals. It will be those goals that will war with their sensibilities and determine if their interaction should be – Long Term.

Dialogue with the Author

When asked how he came to title his latest short story ‘Long Term’, Maurice Gray, chuckles and then easily responds that it came from real life experience. Like his characters, he once worked temporary assignments. What he observed was that the personalities of many in the temporary positions were well-suited for the work. Their short attention spans made them perfect for their short term projects; i.e., they soon tired of the work and were ready to move on.

A people watcher by nature Maurice compared his surveillances to how relationships are evaluated. Those looking for the casual move in quickly; get what they can get and then move on – these are short-term assignments. He believes that this state of the temporary can mature as focus widens, attention span enlarges and true value is placed on the quality of the relationship, be it personal or business.

Like the variety of assignments he has had, Maurice wears many hats. He is a sought after editor who also serves on the faculties of the Sandy Cove and Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conferences where he teaches workshops and evaluates manuscripts for attendees. He is also a member of the Damascus Road Authors.

A confessed loner who has found himself in a profession that requires much interaction with the public Maurice has found himself rising in the ranks of the Greater Newark area Toastmasters club.

Using laughter as medicine to heal most situations Maurice has been reviving his comedic skills at some of his public venues. He is also an accomplished singer and is very active in the Men’s Chorus and Singles ministry at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, DE near his home in New Castle, DE.

His published works include To Whom Much Is Given, All Things Work Together and Traveling Mercies (a short story in the Blessed Assurance anthology). His is the ‘as told to’ co-author of Livingston Lee’s – I Really Didn’t Mean To Get HIV. Next year his third novel Female Problems will release.

Silence Has A Voice

Within the pages of Things Left Unspoken, Eva Marie Everson skillfully touches upon what is all too common in all families – secrets.

Jo-Lynn believes that returning to her hometown to renovate the family residence is the perfect escape from a marriage in need of the same care. What she discovers will change the view of what she once believed and bring her face to face with the reality of what is. Time spent with an imperfect family and reuniting with a long ago love are the tools used to help restore the life she was consenting to allow to slip away.

Things Left Unspoken combines intrigue and romance with faith to present a memorable story of what can happen when your silence finds its voice.

Life Untapped is the name of Stacy Hawkins-Adams’ monthly newsletter.

By personal definition Stacy defines ‘life untapped’ as one living a life:
• Of optimism
• Of giving back
• Of loving unconditionally
• Of loving self
• Unafraid of the new
• Of recognizing and learning from everyday experiences

Those blessed to know Stacy in any capacity will attest to the fact that she is the living definition of the aforementioned words.

Operating within that context Stacy readily admits that writing is a passion she does not take for granted. With each book she challenges her skills not just for the sake of honing her craft, but for the benefit of her readers.

A celebrated author, Stacy’s humility speaks volumes as she gives thanks to the readers who share their thoughts with her and express their gratitude for the ministry within her work. Graciousness accompanies words relaying her joy born out of knowing that her work is not only entertaining, but for some, life changing. She is also humbled by the outpouring of support at personal appearances.

Stacy’s growing writing credentials include her syndicated parenting column, Life Notes, contributions to publications such as the Richmond Times, Heart & Soul Magazine,, contributor to two anthologies and author of five novels.

Worth A Thousand Words is her current release and the second installment from the Jubilant Soul Series (see June 22nd entry of this blog for review). Giving me a glimpse into the future Stacy revealed that she is working on a non-fiction project.

Before concluding our conversation I asked Stacy what she would like readers to know about her. It took a moment for the accomplished mother, wife and writing minister to admit that she is funny and serious. She added that most do not know that in order to become an effective journalist she had to overcome shyness. Above all she wants people to know that she is doing her best to live a life untapped – dependent upon God.

The private lives of the seemingly blessed is not always the view people expect. Such is the case for Jeff and Nikki Singleton.

From the outside the couple seems to have it all in terms of secure careers, productive financial planning, possessions and a great marriage. What will come to light in this necessary story from author Michelle Larks is what really happens behind closed doors and whether or not their faith will be enough to help them overcome.

Added to their marital woes is a unexpected event with the ability to pull the two farther apart.

‘Til Debt Do Us Part speaks to the challenges that beset marriages when past hurts go unresolved and unspoken needs fester.

Dialogue with the Author

Author Michelle Larks is a wife, mother and IT professional. In my opinion she should add consummate hostess to her list of abilities.

Speaking with Michelle via telephone is akin to being ushered into the inner sanctum of her suburban Chicago home. Exuding a disarming candor Ms. Larks invited me into a conversation that most reserve for close friends. In doing so I believe that beside the word vulnerability in the dictionary, we will now find her picture.

During our short time together Michelle shared the story of how she and her husband had to escape from their burning home. I expected her words to revolve around all the things she had lost, but they did not.

Michelle, in her soft-spoken voice relayed the reality of that moment. That reality was that although she was offered help, it was refused. She refused the help believing that things were not as bad as they seemed. Reality opened her eyes to the fact that things were bad in terms of the damage done to the home. Even at that Michelle made the best of the situation – she and her husband checked into a hotel.

Anyone who has had to live through a remodel can attest to the fact that the timeline can become quite an inconvenience. Yet it is often in our inconvenience, our patience, our experience with that which is not a part of our ordinary routine where our greatest lessons are learned.

What was the lesson Michelle learned?

What Michelle candidly revealed was that it took this experience to show her that needing others, being able to depend upon and accept the blessings awaiting you does not label you a burden or inept. She was able to break out of what could have held back/blocked her blessings when she chose to share her needs with others.

When she chose to accept what she would have unselfishly given to others, blessings poured in. They poured in to the degree that with a book signing on her agenda and no clothes to wear, a business outfit came in the mail from someone in her online writing group.

When asked what she would like readers to know about her and her works her answer touches personal aspects of the life she has lived. Michelle is a people person, one who does not pass judgment, but will give advice when asked. Within the pages she writes her focus is set upon family dynamics. She desires to show how people interact and how individual lives and family can be empowered by effective communication.

How Are You Living?

What the Bayou Saw by Patti Lacy is a journey into an often told story, told through a panoramic lens. More than the black and white vision is shown as we become privy to Sally’s (the main character) initiation into mindsets about Blacks as a youth, what she experienced first hand at a later age and how she must come to grips with it in the presence.

Although a work of fiction Author Lacy does a great job of showing the consequence and guilt brought on by living a lie and redemption that can be had when we seek truth.

Who's Interpretation?

Practicing What You Preach is an excellent presentation of what happens when a person comes down with a case of Pharisees Fever. The most prevalent symptom of the disease is a dedication to living by the letter of the law rather than the humanity of it. Such is the case for Melissa Anderson.

After rededicating her life to Christ, Melissa focuses on her job and her religion. The problem with this is that her religious mind is overriding common sense.

The book is one that challenges the reader to pull out their own bibles. Some will call this work preachy, others will find it nourishing. What I found is that Ms. Davis-Griggs skillfully presents real life conflict while seaming it to the necessity of needing to truly understand the laws that govern your life, but not missing out on life due to constraints of self-imposed rigidity.

Inside Worth A Thousand Words (the second offering from the Jubilant Soul series) the issues of life for Indigo Burns are candidly revealed.

A woman with a plan, Indigo is pleased with how her life is turning out. Her carefully laid plans are jeopardized when the proposal she wants is publicly extended at the wrong time. The proposal not only places her in a precarious situation, it totally disrupts the pre-planned timeline she lives by.

Ms. Hawkins-Adams does a great job of uncovering what many of us flirt with – the spirit of compromise. Indigo entertains compromise because she does not want to hurt Brian. Her choice is hers alone to make, but will it ultimately destroy her and others in the long-term process?

In the words of Etta James – At Last!

At last there is an author willing to write a book that is not only relevant, but dares to challenge the mantra of ‘keeping it real’ within a genre in desperate need of a diversity transfusion.

Tory Uncharted Terror Tory Tyson has inherited his father's love for music. Using what is in his hand, he wins a coveted radio contest. His belief that he has made it is challenged by a chain of events that will reshape what he believes to be his pre-planned future.

Whether endowed with street wisdom or somewhat shielded by suburban life, neither demographic will find it hard to follow the storyline, language or examples set forth in this impressive novel. Both demographics will be able to identify with the fact that following the rules will not always insulate you from the predatory practices of others.

Unsigned Hype by Booker T. Mattison is not the quintessential story of a teen’s love for the Hip Hop culture. What it is is a well-written and entertaining ministry that opens eyes to the necessity of moving through life with faith and a lifestyle rooted in true integrity.

Unsigned Hype is available wherever fine books are sold.

Dialogue with the Author

After speaking with Booker T. Mattison for an hour I am compelled to describe him as a young man who embodies the spirit of an old soul. His insight as to how to use what is current in order to plant seeds of expectation for generations to come is commendable. It is also infectious and encouraging.

In addition to being an author Booker’s credentials include that of filmmaker, screenwriter and music videos. He sees his emergence from a ten-year barrenness as one that has set him on his current path. Currently that path is leading him to connect with African Americans on a large scale. On that scale is the hope to accomplish with the ‘Hype’ trilogy, that which is synonymous with the Harry Potter phenomenon.

Some will be challenged by the expression of such an admirable goal. They will because Unsigned Hype, a work that presents characters most African Americans are familiar with, does not smack of the stereotypical boy in the hood melodrama. It is neither a literary aberration nor anomaly. It is a story about those who look like us. Hype connects with who we are and have been, rather than being the expected tale from an African American author feeding the public’s preconceived perception of who they believe us to be. In essence he has created a destination for Christian YA (young adult) reading that did not previously exist.

When asked to summarize the content of his debut novel Booker quickly responds, “It is an urban apologetics of Hip Hop.”

The response may take many off guard and quite frankly, offend others attempting to be ‘down’. In a voice strong in conviction and filled with passion Mr. Mattison candidly relays truth. That truth is that those looking from the outside in will never be culturally equipped to understand the ‘hood’ experience.

Booker T. Mattison resides in New York. He enjoys hanging out with his wife and children and proudly states that what represents him is his family.

I look forward to more projects from a fresh voice unafraid to communicate a supernatural truth through the written word.

To learn more about the man I invite you to visit him on the web at: To partake of what has become more than just an inkling, I challenge you to step into Uncharted-Terror-Tory where the ministry is relevant and is keeping it real:

National Stroke Awareness Month

May is National Stroke Awareness Month. According to the National Stroke Association one half of all African American women will die from stroke or heart disease. This is a disheartening statistic (no pun intended). Also as startling is the medical fact that twice as many women die from stroke than breast cancer each year. Stroke also known as a “brain attack” is when a blood clot blocks an artery or a blood vessel breaks, interrupting the blood flow to an area of the brain. There are no measurable reasons for the excessive amount of stroke and heart issues that African Americans are affected more than Caucasians.

Paulette Harper is an emerging Christian Author making her debut with her first inspirational book That Was Then, This Is Now, This Broken Vessel Restored, a compelling story of deception, heart-ache and ultimate victory. In 10 chapters she masterfully uncovers the hidden obstacles she faced as the “first lady” and how she eventually broke through those barriers.

A native of Pittsburg, CA, Paulette travels as an Inspirational speaker and licensed minister teaching people how to overcome life’s unexpected experiences by delivering a strong message of hope.

Beyond her writing ability she has a passion to lead people to a clear and precise understanding of how life challenges can become one’s ultimate source of victory by sharing solid, biblical principles that will enable people to find a way out of every trial so they can reach their God given potential.

Paulette, tell us about yourself.
I am a native Californian, inspirational speaker, Christian inspirational author, licensed minister, workshop facilitator and founder of Broken Vessel Ministry.

When did you begin to realize God was calling you to write?
My writing journey started in Jan 2007. I really believed that God wanted me to share how I overcame the testing and trials in my own life and how I could bring hope to those facing hard and challenging issues today.

Tell us about That Was Then, This Is Now, This Broken Vessel Restored.
In That Was Then, This Now I chronicle a time in my life in which I faced one of the most devastating events in which I had to overcome. It is a heart-felt story of my lost from divorce but ultimately the victory God gave me by standing, enduring and having the audacity to believe Him through it all.

What influenced you to write this book?
The inspiration or influence came from God of course, but I wanted God to use my life experiences to help bring hope, encouragement and healing to those who are hurting. I wanted something good to come out of my disappointment, my set-backs and trials that would cause anyone who would read my book to be optimistic regardless of the circumstances. I was certain that this was the direction He wanted me to take.

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading That Was Then, This Is Now, This Broken Vessel Restored?
I want my readers to get inspired, encouraged and empowered. When they read my book they will realize that God is able to bring total restoration no matter how difficult the situation, circumstances or trials. The inspiration will come because they would have read about the life of someone who made it through. They will be encouraged because in the book I give them the worse situations but those situations come with scriptures that they can use to help them with what they are facing. People will definitely be empowered, empowered to face everything in life.

What advice can you give to a woman experiencing bitterness due to a broken relationship?
The first thing one must do is to forgive. I realize that this might be hard especially if the other person has hurt you badly but healing will only come when we release those that hurt us. This passage speaks strongly on how important it is to forgive. Mark 11:25-26

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings. Once you release those that have offended you God will began restore and heal you of the bruises and scars. Read Chapter 2 of That Was Then, This Is Now: Don't Get Bitter, Get Better.
Where can readers order your book online?

That Was, Then This Is Now is available on CD, digital download, e-book and paper back at or Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and at all your major bookstores.

Laying The Axe To The Root

Illusions by Wanda B. Campbell sheds light on what many are dealing with in one form or another – addiction.

Three years into what was once a sensual marriage Denise Hightower discovers her husband’s imperfection. Shocked, dismayed and confused by the discovery and the advice she receives, Denise begins to lose her self-confidence.

Although attempts to overcome on his own are noble, stumbles and mixed signals from Bryce only serve to heighten the friction between the couple. It will be the wisdom from a most unlikely source that will help Bryce to turn away from how he has been programmed to think, in order for him to deal with the root of his problem.

Through the pages hard questions will be asked, pondered and agonized over as the two struggle with self-identity. Do not allow the fact that the main characters are religious leaders throw you. What they and many who will read this most inspiring story have and may still be experiencing, is real. It is real and can be overcome when honesty and a willingness to do what it takes, become the tools of application.

Dialogue With the Author

The opportunity to spend any length of time with Wanda B. Campbell is time well-spent. This selfless, humorous and wise woman has much to say and has a very special way of presenting her thoughts. The impression she leaves upon others has nothing to do with a verbal list of self-accolades she could rattle off; it is more her presence, her soft chuckle, or that certain look that says she knows more than she may say. In addition to that, she is a talented writer. By combining what she believes with her literary gifting, she has become a shining star among those raising the standard for Christian fiction writing.

An avid reader since childhood, Wanda responded to the voice in her head by penning and self-publishing her debut novel, First Sunday in October, (January 2007). A romantic at heart, Wanda uses relationships to demonstrate how the power of forgiveness and reconciliation can restore us back to God and one another.

Author Campbell is truly an example of the adage, ‘your gift will make room for you’. Her journey from contest hopeful, to contest winner, to self-publishing, to traditional publishing, is stuff that Hallmark movies are made of. More than her literary achievements, I find her insight, genuine caring for others combined with spiritual gifts, an asset for those blessed to come in contact with her. Conversations with Wanda are filled with humor and wisdom most associate with a more age-seasoned saint.

Through her literary renderings Wanda is very open regarding the necessity for integrity on every level of leadership. This is seen throughout the pages of Illusions as she reveals the expectation of a majority of church leadership for wives to cover the flaws of their husbands. Yet, in doing as she has been taught, it is she (the wife), who is left uncovered. It is this role reversal that breeds seeds of discourse within the family unit.

Candidly Wanda speaks of her desire for her readers to understand that, “It is okay not be perfect.” She goes on to express that we should not become so engrossed with things/position to the degree that we cannot or refuse to be honest. “Be true to yourself,” is the advice she offers to those who may not understand how to walk away from destructive habits. “There is help for the addict. There is help for YOU, if you want it.”

As a Kingdom scribe Ms Campbell is not reticent when proclaiming the necessity of responsibility. “If God has trusted you with His baby, you have to carefully nurture the baby.” As for her future she is clear that ministry is her first priority. It is her ministerial gift combined with her writing that she hopes will help to bridge the gap between the world and Christians and the walls separating the Christian community from one another.

Wanda resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband of nineteen years and two sons. She also has the unique position of being the oldest of five siblings (on one side of her family) and also the youngest of twelve (on the other side of her family). Her hobbies include writing, reading, traveling, and collecting magnets from around the world. Wanda proudly proclaims herself to be the biggest Oakland A’s fan.

The Truth Shall Make You Free

The Lovechild is a representation of what far too many families share - secrets.

Six years away from her dysfunctional family is not enough time to prepare Makaeli Hunt for what awaits her homecoming.

Coming home reveals that not much has changed in terms of the fragile state of her mother, an estranged brother, one abusive and one domineering sister. What will change will be the uncovering of secrets that are at the root of their fears and inability to move forward. Most of all Makaeli will come to understand the power of forgiveness.

Ashea Goldson has written a novel with a fresh voice and a strong message. That voice, aided by biblical truths, has the ability to open the eyes, ears and spirit of understanding to those who will listen. The message boldly pronounces that when you choose to move beyond painful pasts, you will find that the present and the future is worth living in and striving for, fully healed.


Be it a business, casual or intimate relationship, operating out of unhealthy practices is a sign of something in need of healing. Healing is a matter of choice and to that end, it has been offered through the pages of Relationship Rerun.

With responsibly wrapped candor Tanya White has presented a book that brings to the forefront what most neglect – wise use of the option of choice. Although straight forward, the text invites its readers to take an honest look at habits and unresolved issues that may be at the root of the cycle of dissatisfaction. Author White does not propose to be the answer to all that ails you. She does however, through throughout the book offer a mirror for the opportunity of studying self-reflections. It also opens the door for individuals to seek understanding of their personal value and to work towards establishing healthy practices that nourishes the body, soul and spirit.

Your Testimony Is Not Your Own

With vulnerability that is to be applauded Paulette Harper openly shares herself with others so that they might choose to be healed.

Free from the bonds of inhibition Ms. Harper’s candor combined with scripture is the invitation to healing so many seek. Author Harper's revelations will seem familiar to some. To others her bold words will uncover unhealed wounds buried under layers of minutia. Through it all, her ministering words reach out to the seeking as well as those who may not even realize they are on a hunt.

That Was Then This Is Now clearly shows the reader that past failures and repetitious errors do not disqualify us from the original plans God has for our lives.
