Excerpt from 

From Here To There


Jae Henderson & Mario D.King

“PUSH!! BREATHE! We’re almost there!” said the doctor. My OBGYN, Dr. Sales, couldn’t get here in time, so there’s some man I have never met, all in my twat guiding me and my little one. He sounded like a drill sergeant as he forcefully instructed me on how to bring life into the world at a time when all I wanted to do was die.

I was in no shape to be delivering a baby, and the love of my life was in another part of the hospital fighting for his life. And now I’m here pushing and breathing for dear life without him. I didn’t mean to upset Marcus. I just wanted to see my man, my baby daddy, the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. It didn’t help that as they rolled me out, I saw Chanel, his other baby momma, standing outside the door. I wanted to roll that wheelchair right over her foot and kick her in the shin. I knew the only person that could have told her was Jackson; that man is so conniving. He had the nerve to offer to be in the delivery room with me. No way!

I silently prayed while I pushed. Father God, please let Marcus be okay. Neither one of us has been perfect, but we are just starting to get it right. Have mercy on him. Have mercy on me.
“You’re doing just fine, Natalie . . . NOW, PUSH!!” the doctor instructed.
I bore down as hard as I could and gave a thrust to the lower half of my abdomen. I couldn’t really feel the lower half of my body thanks to the epidural, but sweat was continuously rolling off the upper half.

“Now, one more big one should do it! PUUUUUUUUUSH!” the doctor shouted.
I let out a sound that was a mixture of a grunt and a scream as I did as I was instructed. A few seconds later, he said, “Here—” then the doctor cut his sentence short.

I knew immediately that something was wrong, and I didn’t hear any crying. There should be crying . . . Shouldn’t there? I looked up at Mrs. Colbert. She hadn’t said much. I knew she was mad at me for upsetting Marcus, but at least she was there. Even in her anger, she hadn’t abandoned me in my time of need. She used her warm hands to give me reassuring touches the entire time, and now she gave me a forced smile as she wiped the sweat from my brow with a damp cloth. 

I opened my mouth to ask her what was wrong, but I suddenly felt tightness in my chest, as if someone had their fist wrapped around my heart. She looked in the direction of the doctor and stopped. Her stoic smile disappeared, and her face now held great concern.
“Code Blue. She’s going into cardiac arrest!” I heard the doctor say.

“Stay with me, Natalie,” said Mrs. Colbert. She said something else after that, but it was low and garbled. The kind, old woman was standing right next to me, but she sounded far away.
Out of nowhere came a blinding bright light. Then, in the glow appeared the glorious figure of a man. I couldn’t quite recognize him, but the silhouette appeared to be that of . . . Marcus? It can’t be.

Did I just die?

Is he dead?

Lord, help!

My Cry to God is the story of Olivia Johnson, a young Christian woman who struggles to overcome many great obstacles in her life as she searches to find herself through her faith. The events in this book are based on the real life experiences of the author. 

From a young age, she deals with mental abuse from her whole family, and physical abuse from her siblings. In her teenage years she is diagnosed with a life threatening disease that causes her to reevaluate her view of the world and her perspective on life. As she grows older, she finds herself drawn to men who first provide her with a sense of safety and security, but ultimately end up making her feel even more broken than she had before, but she desperately wants to find love. All the while she questions her faith as she learns one lesson after another about the world and her purpose. 

Lucy Irving is a small town girl who has dealt with many tormenting situations in her life. From being abused as a child, burying three of her children, conquering drug addiction, and so much more, she never lost her faith, though she struggled with it for years.

Behind the Scenes Author Interview

Featuring Megan Fatheree

Hello Megan, Welcome to Nothing But Books Blog.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I think I've always realized it, even if it was subconsciously. As a child, I wrote stories and had complex story-lines that I used when playing with my dolls and toys. I've always liked controlling the plot of games and I always look at how I would have written things differently from what I'm reading or watching. Mostly, I think I loved books so much that something in me just had to write them. 

What was the hardest scene to write in this book?

The hardest scene to write in this book was, surprisingly, the final showdown. It was difficult to really narrow down how it should go and who should attempt what kinds of things. It took a solid two weeks to write that one scene. 

Did you hide any secrets in your book that only a few people will find?

As a writer, it's my job to think through everything down to the littlest details. There are several little details that I think not everyone will see, but they enhance the story. There's also a few nods to other things I like to read or watch. If you guys can find those, I'll be your friend for life. 

What is your writing Kryptonite?

I will be completely honest. I'm in everything for the “ships”. For those non-fangirl/fanboy people reading this, I will explain. A ship is not just a boat floating along in the ocean. No, no, no. It is also a relationship that you approve of so much you just want those two characters to get together at the end. I attempt to write these kinds of relationships – ones where you will all love that they're in love. That's my Kryptonite: love. 

What was the inspiration (motivation) behind the book? (Why did you write the book?)
This trilogy (For Such A Time) came out of a time of prayer and Bible study on the book of Esther. I have always loved Esther, but after deeper study with a group of fabulous church friends, God gave me the inspiration and storyline to write this series.
Who (or what) is your greatest encourager when you write and why?
I have two great encouragers. The first is a fellow writer who reads my work and encourages me on what I've done right and what could be better. The second is actually my little sister. As a child, she had a terrible time reading and writing (she's better now), but she always takes time to read my works and she happens to love them. The very idea that my stories may be something that can even get through to those who don't like to read keeps me going some days.
Any tips for upcoming authors?
I have 2 tips I try to live by: 1 – Never give up. Someone needs your story. No matter how it feels now, someone needs what you have inside and no one can tell it quite like you. 2 – don't write for others, write the story you want to read. People can tell if this was a passion project or if it was out of what you thought was “necessary” for people to like it. Icons and heroes aren't people pleasers.
How can readers connect with you?
I love this question! If you're on Twitter or Instagram, you can find me at the handle @mef_writer1 – or you can email me (!
What genre is your book?
Romantic Suspense. (Let me “side note” for a minute – I'm a sucker for romance, but I need the suspense too. It's a thing with me. Join me!)

Winter lives in the moment and loves nothing more than being surrounded by her family, her fur-babies, and a ton of great reads!
