What will they do when faced with devastating life situations that shake the very foundation that their lives are built upon? Follow this group of audacious women as they stare down the most tumultuous year they have ever had to face.
Q. Please tell the readers who are the main characters?
Shades of Brown revolves around four main characters; Asami, Bonita, Morgan, and Si-enna.
Q. What or is there conflict in the story?
Shades of Brown is about four women who face some pretty incredible challenges and how they face and overcome these challenges. There is a ton of conflict throughout the book. These women face things like health concerns, fertility issues, and marital strug-gles; their very faith is shaken.
Q. Which characters in “are you most like?
I think there’s a bit of me in all four characters, but if I had to choose one of the four that I can relate to most is Morgan. She loves her family and keeps them in the forefront of her mind. She lives for the happiness and wellbeing of her children and always strives to be a good wife to her husband. Morgan gets caught up in being all things to all peo-ple and sort of forgets to take care of herself; she’s last on her list of things to do.
Q. Take us inside “your book” What are two major events taking place?
There is a lot going on within the pages of Shades of Brown, but there are a couple of major life events that stand out for me here. The first is the completely life altering health concerns that a couple of the characters face. I think most of us take things like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension for granted because they’re so common place now, but these decreases among others are life threatening, life altering deceases that should be taken seriously. Second, my characters come to a point in their lives where they’re shifting gears and starting over. They’re changing careers and starting families; these are major life events that cause them to sort of do a 360 degree turn and start life over again.
Q. Are your characters from the portrayal of real people?
They are. I see these characters in my own circle of sister friends. I have a people in my life who are comforters like Morgan is, quiet strength and innocence like Asami, No nonsense fire like Bonita, and the voice of reason like Sienna. They all bring something different to the table but whatever they bring is welcome, respected, and valued.
Q. Describe each character in three words?
In three words: Asami is sweet, sensitive, and strong; Bonita is audacious, creative, strong; Morgan is loving, nurturing, strong; Sienna is protective, wise, strong. Yes, I used strong to describe all of these women because at the end of the day, they all show the strength and fortitude God has given them.
