Interviewed: Real Authors Real Answers

BooksCheck out my interview with Real Authors Real Answers!

Real Answer Real Authors: Why did you decide to publish?

Stephanie:  I have been in love with writing for as far back as I can remember.  More specifically, over the course of the last 10 years, I have flirted with writing a book.  In January 2012, I declared that I would commit myself with action to my dream to share divine insight on challenges and triumphs I experienced, particularly those in academic environments as a means to encourage, assist and affirm others.  I thought publishing would be a primary and significant method to share my message.

RARA: What titles have you published to date?

Stephanie:   I have published, “Later Never Came Until Now.”  “Later Never Came Until Now” is a 47,000 word faith-based reflective narrative designed to empower from both a scholarly and scriptural perspective exploring elements that came “nigh my dwelling.” As a child, I was told “you may not understand it now, but you will later.”  As an adult, I realize that I missed so many opportunities to apply what I was being exposed to and learning in the moment. 

The main character is me, the product of a single parent household from the south side of Chicago, who was perpetually interested in everything but school, yet surpassed obstacles to eventually attain a doctorate degree while holding ever connected to faith in God. Through narratives from age 9 to 40, this book will take the reader on a journey through laughter and tears to fully appreciate turning tough trials into triumphs and struggles into successes.
