And please, please pre-order my new book, Mama’s Boy, which comes out July 7, 2015! That one has it all…family drama, racial tension…and the love of a mother for her son. Many of you have asked about Let the Church Say Amen, the movie (directed by actress Regina King, produced by Queen Latifah’s Flava Unit, Royal Ties Productions and Bobcatt Films). Don’t worry, you didn’t miss it! The movie is done and on the shelf! Just so you know, it stars Steve Harris, Lela Rochon, Naturi Naughton, Hosea Chanchez, Collins Penne and more talented actors, including yours truly! Yes, I made my movie debut as a Deaconess!

In the meantime, browse my site, see what book you’re missing and make plans to come back soon!
What’s Done in the Dark
Felise is not the kind of woman to cheat on her husband—especially with her best friend’s man. But after one perfect storm of a night, it happened…and she can hardly believe it herself. To top it off, when she woke up in the morning, she found that the man to whom she guiltily made passionate love died of a heart attack overnight. Felise, who is a nurse and a good citizen at that, leaves the hotel room without reporting his death.
When her best friend, Paula, finds out about her husband’s sudden death a day later, Felise is overcome with guilt and grief. She must be there for her friend and her family, but when her husband repeatedly tries to apologize for his absentminded behavior and Paula starts investigating who Stephen was with the night he died, Felise finds it hard to hold herself together. Should she come clean and tell everyone what she did? Or should she just let it go and move past the mistake on her own?
Fortune & Fame
Jasmine Cox Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams have been through a lot together—from fighting for their husbands to become the head of the American Baptist Coalition to getting mixed up in a terrible murder. Now the frenemies have found themselves the stars of First Ladies, a much anticipated new reality television show.
Jasmine balks at the idea of airing her dirty laundry on national TV, but Rachel sees it as the perfect opportunity to take her brand to the next level. And if Rachel is in, so is Jasmine. All the cast members are women of God—how much drama can there be?
Rachel and Jasmine know their own pasts are murky, but they’ll seem like choir girls when the secrets and sins of the others come to light. The two will once again have to form an unholy alliance to go up against these so-called Godly women who see the show as their chance to take them down—at any cost.
A Family Affair
Olivia Dawson has watched her mother struggle her whole life. For as long as she can remember, it’s been just the two of them, trying to make ends meet. When Olivia finally gets her big break—acceptance into Julliard—she chooses not to go because she would rather stay home to take care of her sickly mother and help pay the bills, instead of pursuing her dream.
When Olivia’s mother finds out that her daughter has abandoned her dream, however, she reveals a shocking secret: Olivia’s father is alive and doing very well for himself. Olivia decides to track down the man that might be her father, and confront him about the lifelong deception.
Bernard Wells is a wealthy business owner—his success partly due to his marriage to a beautiful heiress and socialite. And predictably, he handles Olivia’s reentry into his life the same way he handles everything: by throwing money at the problem. But this tactic can only work for so long before the truth comes to light, bringing surprising revelations—and healing—for everyone.
