Thank you for stopping by my website. Hope you’ll take a moment to look around and check out the books I’ve written over the past two decades. Yep, I’m blessed to have been writing so long. I’ve come a long way from making up stories as a little girl (See Ma, my “tall tales” did lead to something good:-).

While you’re here, please check out my upcoming release, Miss Pearly’s Girls. I’m so excited about this book, which releases Feb. 22, 2022. I hope you’ll preorder your copy today here or wherever books are sold! (Indie bookstores offer preorders, too!) Make sure you’re on my mailing list to stay updated. In the meantime, browse my site, see what book you’re missing and make plans to come back soon!

Preorder Miss Pearly’s Girls Now!

Raising four very different daughters on her own in rural Arkansas wasn’t easy for Miss Pearly Bell. And she’s always regretted that the sisters went their separate ways for good—and never wanted to see each other again. But when Pearly is stricken with a terminal illness, she summons them all home—determined to somehow help them get right with each other and forgive. . . But that means dealing with past secrets and lies first.

As the oldest sister, pastor’s wife Maxine took her responsibility way too seriously—and never fails to judge everyone else. But a secret she can no longer keep will explode everything she stands for. Youngest sister Leslie is all about making a very different life with her new love—but she didn’t expect a shattering past truth to be suddenly revealed and uproot everything she ever thought she knew. Elegant PR professional Stella and her earthy twin, Star, don’t see eye-to-eye on anything—and now a long-ago deception could wipe out their last chance at a relationship.

Soon each sister must confront the illusions they’ve taken refuge in for so long and deal with each other woman-to-woman. But can building an all-too-fragile trust repair the damage done—and help them come together when they are needed most?

A Little Bit of Karma

Meet Shannon and Jay Lovejoy—the rich and successful power couple who, to the fans of their call-in radio show, seem like they’ve got it all. But after three years, their once passionate and loving romance has fizzled and the couple’s divorce becomes embroiled in not only a mess of infidelity and deceit, but the untimely and shocking death of Jay’s mistress, as well.

This fast-paced and emotionally powerful page-turner boldly goes where ReShonda Tate Billingsley has never gone before with her fiction, delivering the perfect combination of romance and suspense in one thrilling novel.

The Stolen Daughter

Raised by a widowed mother, Jill Reed has come a long way from her difficult youth. But while she may not have had money, Jill never doubted she was rich in love. Her mother, Connie, made Jill the center of her world. Now, even though she has a young family of her own, it’s Jill’s turn to care for her ailing mother.

When early dementia begins to set in, Connie starts talking about Jill’s “other life.” Jill assumes it’s just rambling confusion. Still, Connie’s stories about Jill’s childhood, and her father’s early death, never quite added up. And when a strange man shows up to Jill’s job bearing news that turns Jill’s life upside down, there’s no denying Connie’s devastating secret.

As Jill sets out to learn more about her past, she’s stunned by what she learns and what it will mean for her future. Now, she must decide what price she’s willing to pay to claim the life that’s rightfully hers.

    Hi Reshonda! I’ve always loved your writings. I just finished What’s Done in The Dark. Yes I know I’m behind, but I’ve been busy. Wonderful! The end shocked me! Can we get a sequel on this one? Thanks for sharing your craft!

  6. Joy Campbell says:

    Hi Reshonda! I’m so thrilled with your writing and often wonder if your stories aren’t true. You’re blessed with a great talent. I have just read Mama’s boy recently which was a page turner along with your other books. Sometimes, I wish these stories can come to live on TV screen. Thanks for your inspiring stories. You have put a desire in my heart for reading. I’m in love with your handiwork.

  7. The subsequent time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you possibly can fix if you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    I am a member of a small bookclub, only five of us currently. We take turns selecting books and get together over dinner or brunch at a local restaurant to discuss. I previously selected Seeking Sarah which everyone enjoyed, and this month I selected Mama’s Boy. I throughly enjoyed Mama’s Boy as it touches on so many topics; marriage infidelity, forgiveness, African Americans relation with the police, friendship, the black church, special groups out for justice or out for themselves, a Mother’s love, I could go on. I am so looking forward to our group discussion. I am not sure if you ever participate in book club group discussions via phone or in person but I thought I would inquire. Thank you for writing such entertaining books with lively well developed characters.

    Ms. Billingsley:

    I recently read your book “More to Life: and was disappointed that you did not mention Aja going to a psychiatrist, marriage counselor or a therapist. Even after she was in a wheelchair the majority of the time the primary physician mandates you see a psychologist/psychiatrist because it is a drastic change that you are unable to walk. Are you under the assumption that black people don’t need therapy?

    Hello ReShonda,
    My book club J’aime Lire just finished reading The Stolen Daughter. We will be discussing the book on Sunday, August 29, 2021. We are located here in Houston and we meet via Google Meet. We would absolutely love for you to join us if you are available. I thoroughly enjoyed the book as it touches upon a topic that some of us are dealing with or know someone who is dealing with a family member who has dementia.
