Behind the Chapter: California Love

In chapter three of Diary of a Divorcee Diva, the introductory scene symbolizes Mikayla leaving all of her troubles behind and hoping, against all odds, that this journey would take beyond her wildest dreams. Ironically, she was taking the trip with her off again and on again ex-boyfriend. There was no denying the temptation to rekindle the past, but she was determined to turn her focus to the future. Based on my actual first trip to Cali and my experiences there, I try to give my readers a sense that they are with Mikayla on her way to freedom and new adventure as her love for California and the flicker of her old flame take flight. Let’s catch up with Mikayla on Cloud Nine...



Chapter Three-California Love Excerpt I never felt so free as I did on that flight to LAX. The sky was the limit and I was literally on top the world, looking down on it from Cloud Nine. No one could tell me anything would ever go wrong ever again at that moment in time. After chatting it up with Darren a lit…

Diva Love: Merci McKinley

Today, I am delighted to welcome fellow author and poet, Merci McKinley. I enjoyed reading her latest work, The Harvest, and I am grateful to showcase it here on my blog!

1|I particularly enjoy featuring other writers who, such as myself, have a testimony of chronic illness and domestic violence that empowers other women and puts an emphasis on their Christian walk. Tell us about your decision to include your faith in your writing.

The decision to write The Harvest came rather easy because it is my tribute to the presence of GOD within my life. It was my way of thanking him by helping another discover who he is through seeing the importance of having a relationship with him for themselves. Oddly enough, but rather a divine intervention, I chose the cover and the title for the book prior to writing it. I wanted to provide someone with the same gift I was given which is an ultimate relationship with the Heavenly Father and propel her forward towards it. Our faith is ultimately our lifel…

DDD Spotlight: Fiercely Camille

A shopaholic boss diva who sits in a boardroom filled with men all day, Camille can best be described as fierce. Not always the most confident in her own superpowers, yet she speaks her mind and always takes the lead, even when it comes to Mikayla’s relationships. Their first loves were brothers and they have considered themselves sisters ever since. Always opposite in their love lives thereafter, Mikayla was divorcing while Camille was tying the knot and matchmaker Camille soon wanted to hook Mikayla up with her new man’s best friend. Imagine that, since she encouraged Mikayla to date the guy she was just in divorce court with! But, Camille knows her better than anyone, so why not take her advice again? Get your copy today!

DDD Spotlight: Divinely Keisha

I like to describe Keisha as divinely loyal. Sometimes, too much and too soon, but she never gives up on her family, her friends or her man. She often prays to get that dedication in return. God spared her from death when she was given just two years to live, fifteen years ago, now surely he could deliver her from lies and betrayal. If there's one person who she can count on to be there, it's her friend, Mikayla. Whether she wants to laugh or needs to cry, Keisha can always call on her. They didn't start out that way; more like almost toe-to-toe, but after both being on a collision course with divorce and life as they once knew it, now they have each other's back.

DDD Spotlight: Simply Mikayla

Quiet, yet confident with a whole lot of sass, Mikayla is never afraid of a new adventure in life or in love. She has a heart for taking care of others and always has an encouraging word to offer. Mikayla is rarely the initiator of trouble, but if you cross her, she will tell it to you straight and simple, then cut you loose. She often wonders if that's what keeps her in the land of happily NEVER after. But, then there's that little thing where she compares all men to her first love and floats back to him every time they are simultaneously single. Still, that doesn't stop her quest to find the one who will make her forget all about her past and never let her go. Get your copy of her story at Amazon or Barnes and Noble !
