  • My Brother's Keeper (2001)
    Aja James is a survivor. Her outward beauty and strength artfully conceal the scars within... Scars inflicted by a horrific family tragedy. Aja has managed to leave her troubled past behind and begin again. The new chapter in her life begins with hope, and one of the most sought after bachelors in town, handsome sportscaster, Charles Clayton. But just when Aja starts to enjoy her new life, she’s forced to deal with some old demons. While Aja seems to have rebounded from the family’s history, her brother, Eric, a promising NBA prospect, is unable to get past it. His uncontrollable rage and inner turmoil sideline his basketball career and wreak havoc on his own personal relationships. When Aja sees her brother heading down the same violent path that destroyed their family, she makes it her business to stop the cycle --even if it means putting her own life, and love, on hold. Through it all, both Aja and her brother learn a lesson in forgiveness, from their little sister, Jada. Although she was hit hardest by the family tragedy, her resilience proves sometimes you have to forgive in order to find the strength to move on.

    My Brother’s Keeper is a captivating novel that takes a poignant look at how deep childhood issues can run. Both humorous and heart-wrenching, this exciting debut novel will leave you wanting more.

  •  Let the Church Say Amen (2004)
    Reverend Simon Jackson has always felt destined to lead and he’s done a good job of it, transforming his small Houston church into one of the most respected and renowned in the region. But while the good Reverend’s been busy tending his flock, his family’s gone astray. His 19-year-old daughter, Rachel, gives new meaning to “baby mama drama.” Crazy in love with her son’s father, she’s wreaking havoc on the man’s life, even though he’s about to marry another. David, Simon’s oldest at 27, has been spiraling downward ever since a knee injury ended a promising football career. These days he’s seeking solace in drugs—even feeding his habit by stealing church offerings. Blessedly, 23-year-old Jonathan, a college graduate and the apple of Simon’s eye, is poised to take his father’s side as associate pastor—or so everyone thinks.

    Let the Church Say Amen is a powerful journey through one family’s trials—and a remarkable story of reconciliation and love.
