Virtual Book Tour for Author Wanda B. CampbellBy APOOO • Feb 22nd, 2013 • Category: Author of the Week • Email This Post • Print This Post
Welcome to APOOO, Wanda B. Campbell!
I am a native Chicagoan, but I consider the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area my hometown, since I have lived here from age two. I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a minister, a mentor and an author. My greatest role is being a servant of God. Writing is my passion and books are my one addiction.
I began writing in 2005, and to date have seven published award-winning Christian Fiction novels. I enjoy writing “edgy” stories about imperfect people and using relationships to show forgiveness and restoration.
In 140 words or less, tell us why Liberation would make a great addition to our personal library.
Liberation is a heart-wrenching and uplifting tale of pain and triumph. Shannon Yates can be found in every neighborhood in every community across America. The struggles Shannon face are not limited to African-Americans, but are universal. How she handles her problems are realistic and her personality is relatable.
How did you come up with the premise for Liberation?
Finding the premise for Liberation was easy, considering I have personally experienced much of Shannon’s struggles.
Tell us about the main character(s) in Liberation.
After spending most of her life searching for acceptance, Shannon Yates is a young woman struggling to find herself. Traumatic events and years of neglect have left her void of self-esteem and confidence. Desperate to discover her self-worth, Shannon turns to the church, but old and new wounds keep her locked in the past.
Marcus Simone is a man of substance and confidence. He’s used to getting what he wants, when he wants it. He isn’t afraid of a challenge, but his pursuit of Shannon pushes him to the limit. In the process, Marcus learns the true meaning of unconditional love.

Family neglect, emotional and physical abuse, low self-esteem, insecurity and family values.
