Shana Burton is very much a Georgia Peach! She loves God, family, food and fun. She’s either quiet and reserved or completely over-the-top. There is no middle ground. She is not good at being fake, so what you see is pretty much what you get. She’s also extremely sensitive to the needs of others. She can’t stand to see people mistreated or in pain. She’s just really simple and complex at the same time.
Aaron Jamieson is living a carefree life. He’s good-looking, respectable when he’s in the mood, but his weakness is women. When a woman tries to ambush him with a pregnancy, he takes off in the other direction. Responsibility as an option is something he learned from his absentee father.

Atlanta novelist, Marian L. Thomas, released her third Clean Fiction title, “Strings of Color” on April 2, 2012. Ms. Thomas’s “Strings of Color” probes the ever-intriguing themes of race, family strife, love, teen pregnancy, friendship and abuse. And yet, her tales that seem to pre-sage current tabloid headlines are spelled out in ways that suit delicate moral tastes.
Adams has been a writer and a lover of books since early childhood, when she penned short stories and poems. She loves to inspire and inform readers through women’s fiction novels that mirror real life. The issues her characters deal with are messy – just like in real life, and they sometimes struggle with their faith – just like in real life.
If readers love suspense with a bit of romance and characters facing realistic issues, then When Rain Falls is a highly recommended read. I can tell you personally as the writer this story ministered to me. My prayer is that it does the same for the reader. Also, you can’t beat a good ole who-dunnit read. LOL!
My novels are reader friendly. You do not have to be a Christian, woman, or African-American to relate to the plight of Kidd Jamieson in Guilty by Association. You fall in love with the characters and root for them. The readers will also learn some African-American genealogy which will spark interest in non-fiction books about ancestry.
Bound for Glory is a full-color coffee-table book. Even more, both books offer the gift of knowledge. The devotional takes a path through 52 virtues that God blesses daily. If you feel lack in your life, this is your book. Bound for Glory features illustrations and reflections on 52 African American spirituals—plus a Bible verse relevant to each song. Another beautiful book treasure.
