Tell us about your book?

The Love Story retells the story of Jesus Christ. It shares the love relationship between God and man. Wherein, he offered his Son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for all mankind. This story prepares the reader to understand how a sacrificial love is not only temporary, but transcends into timelessness.





Where can visitors find you online? 

I can be found on facebook, www.The Love Story.com, www.amazon.com and my publisher website; www.tatepublishing.com

What inspired you to write this book?

Inspiration for this book came from several sources. One of which was my church nursery directors, who asked if I could develop a curriculum which focused on one biblical character, wherein, a syllabus was built around them. Another can from a young child who asked me the question, “who is God,” after attempting to answer this child with my adult language, they seemed not to understand my answer. With this The Love Story truly came to life, were I considered it is important for a child to understand who is God according to their primary language and/or age.

In five words describe your book?

Child-friendly, vibrant, love, relationship and educational

Among all the books that you have read, which of these have significantly contributed to your writing style?
Since I am frequently surrounded by children, my writing style derives from children’s book; such as, The Three Bears or any Dr. Seuss book. Therefore; I engross myself in books which children enjoy reading.

Why do you feel you had to tell this story?

Telling this story was essential, because there are many children and adults recognize or possible heard about Jesus life; however, never considering this is God’s love story.

Sleep in or get up early?

Most of my life I have been an early riser. I love getting up while everything is quiet; sometimes seating on the porch watching the morning sun come up. I have found this to be the most peaceful part day. Everything is surreal with my thoughts being clear; I can focus on the day without distractions.


3 celebrity crushes?

Billy Dee Williams; I’ve loved him since childhood; he seems so suave and smooth. Second would be Sean Conner he is so handsome and appears to be a true gentleman. Lastly, Elvis Presley, although I do not consider him as handsome, he is a movie watching crush, I could watch his movies all day, every day.

Cheryl, tell us about your book?

It’s way too common; the woman who simply exists instead of living a life that fulfills her. She is laden with guilt whenever she thinks about giving to herself, so she does what she knows best – takes care of others and neglects her own needs and desires.

How did you come up with the idea for this book?

The topic of the book began as a seminar talk for my Permission Granted annual women’s empowerment seminar. Over the years, the topic became popular and the most requested so I decided to turn the message into a book so that I can empower more women who are tired of the status quo!

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

The difficult part of the writing the book is dedicating the time to do it. As a graphic & web designer, business coach and empowerment speaker my schedule is always tight. So, time was the toughest part. I had to set a date and plan an event around so that I could make it happen.

Why do you write?

I don’t consider myself a writer per se but a woman on assignment to empower women around the world and writing is a part of it.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

I want readers to understand that they have the power to change their own lives and not be conformed to mediocrity. Every dream that you have is possible and doable if you just activate the right ingredients and don’t give up during the process.

No way can she risk looking like an idiot in front of her colleagues. Taking proactive measures, she acquires the services of a guide to give her a crash-course in camping.
