Quiet Storm (Paperback)
About the Author
I was Down South on a Plantation to parents who were also born in the Deep South. I am the third oldest of ten children born to my parents. I was born Southern Baptist, and after moving to the state of Illinois in 1978, my family began serving in the Church Of God In Christ, (C.O.G.I.C.). I met the first husband, at that Church when I was singing in the junior choir. We were both in junior high school. I was age 13 and He was 14. I was very fond of him, but we did not start dating until later. I began college in 1985 and later we had a son and that is when I temporarily ended my college studies. Our courtship was only known to the two of us at the beginning. Before our separation, we had two more sons. There was a second marriage out of which came three daughters. I am a mother of six; three sons and three daughters, respectively. I currently reside in Southern California where I have launched a nonprofit organization that assists families who have experienced violence and trauma, and plans are also underway to begin a mentoring program for African Youth. I am creative with recipes, and I love to cook and create all types of dishes, especially Southern Foods. I am also the bestselling author of the book Quiet Storm. Most importantly, I have a heart and a mind to serve humanity and work for the betterment of underserved communities. I also work with other agencies for the same cause, donating to charities, and advocating for victims and survivors of domestic violence through the nonprofit organization that I have founded. The MOTH Foundation, Inc. The acronym MOTH stands for Matters of The Home.
