From the author
One year ago we celebrated the birth of my first novel, "Whispers in the Night." I'm proud to say it's doing well. My next novel, "You're Mine" is in the process of being sold, look for it in 2001.
I have this unyielding belief that love can conquer just about all. Hence the reason I enjoy writing about topics that impact African American community while also sprinkling in a love story of two people fighting to overcome their own personal issues will continue to be an underlying theme.
Thanks readers for all the wonderful notes and letters. Do keep in touch!

Patricia Ryan is the board president of a community center for at-risk kids. She is actively soliciting supporters to protest the sale of the center to the Mackenzy-Duran Distribution Company that is looking to demolish the building and by doing so, the dreams of the underprivileged youth who depend on it. Mac Carter, co-owner of Mackenzy-Duran, has interest not only in expanding his company, but also in Patricia. Despite their professional differences, Mac longs to whisper in the night all the loving words Patricia needs and wants to hear.
There is an underlining story of three African American women (girlfriends) supporting each other as they strive together to fight against the odds. Other themes for African Americans in this book:

Your ability to blend the needs of a community, the inner workings of a successful advertising firm and trucking company (the ups and downs,) intertwined with a negative hood mentality and all smoothed over (but not at all distorted) by true love and friendship, convictions, strong family values (especially Mothers Love) and last but not least, fiery passion, all so well and tastefully depicted." -- Luke Gilbert
