Tell us more about your book!

What happens when you’re married to a pastor who everyone loves and adores but he doesn’t love and adore you? No one knows what it’s like to be married and feel alone the way a First Lady does who hides underneath her hat. Be a part of the story of Amanda Jayne, a woman of God who remained strong while rediscovering herself through the infidelity in her marriage and the deception of the ones around her, as she hid UNDERneath her hat in order to protect the very man that failed to protect her.

You’re sharing an elevator with a big name publisher. Pitch your book using 20 words or less!

See how Amanda Jayne discovered herself in the midst of a storm and the lessons she learned while doing so.

What does your ideal writing space look like?

My leather living room couch with my laptop and phone. I record on my voice memo and type it out.

If your book was turned into a movie, who would play your main characters?

Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls version) and Cedric the Entertainer

You’re stranded on an island, and only one character from any book can save you. Who are you picking?
