“I just wanted to let you know that I finished reading your book and it was completely amazing. Very detailed and it made me turn the page every time. I got teary-eyed at one part. I'm not sure I remember which one that was.. That's how amazing your book was! :) I can't wait for your next books.”

"Just wanted you to know that I picked up your book this past weekend and read it in one sitting. Absolutely riveting, passionate, gutsy, personal, and powerful. Deep, very, very deep... It was definitely well written, and I'm sure that all who will read it will be able to identify with those struggles which we all face on a daily basis. In any case, it was great. I loved it. Looking for your next one..."

From early childhood, this woman suffered from one bad incident to another, and though really not too unlike others, her perception of the tribulations of life took her into an extreme way of thinking. Always seeming to go against the grain, she married a man who turned out to be a better friend than husband. There were many lessons through her travels, but she was always left with another decision. I read this story with interest; however, the one thing I was looking for was something I never found. ‘Who was this woman?’ Though I knew the reference to the particular people used in this story, I never knew any of them by name. I found myself feeling lost at times. I hope the second segment is a bit more explicit.

This afternoon, I received my copy of "A Black Sheep In The Fold." I read the entire book from cover to cover within the short span of a few hours. I truly enjoyed every page. Your true-to-life literary work is definitely a "Word in Season". Congratulations on a job well done. Keep up the good work, My Sister. God has given you a beautiful gift, and you definitely used this gift to His glory. Blessings. . .

Captivating! Astounding! Excellent!
Author, Michelle A. James paints a panoramic picture of the life of a woman on a quest to find her way. This true-to-life, yet fictional character struggles against strong holds, stumbling blocks, and situation after challenging situation.
Armed with her stong faith in Almighty God; along with her own strength and fortitude, she is determined to erase the many scars of her past. What shall she find on this mission of discovery? Heaven only knows..
I had the opportunity to purchase this short story and thought it an excellent read! The author weaves light humor between the lines of the character's serious and intense life experiences. I recommend this book to individuals who may feel that they have no value or significance in life. This book offers hope and encouragement with a spiritual undertone.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Michelle A. James is a Jamaican native and resident of Fort Myers, Florida (City of Palms). As an author and poet, she hopes that her literary work will inspire, encourage and transform the lives of readers everywhere.
Since my early childhood, I was always an avid reader. I would primarily read romance and mystery novels which piqued and held my interest. The adventure later began in my college years where my thirst for knowledge became unquenchable. I would thumb through endless pages of various magazines and publications: science, business, home and garden and religion... just to name a few. It was then that I realized that I had a knack for writing, particularly poetry.
Now, instead of keeping all my thoughts on paper to myself, I feel the need to share them with the world. One never knows whether or not this seed of mine that is being sown, will fall on the soil of another person's heart, to burst forth roots of encouragement, produce fruit of inspiration, or bloom flowers of blessing.
The foundational basis of the majority of the poems I write stem from my Christian faith. Themes covered include: christianity, love/romance, world conditions, holidays and special events.
My published books include: "A Black Sheep in the Fold" (a short story fiction), "Writes Of Passage" and "Write from the Heart"(both poetry works). All are available online.
I'm currently in the initial stages of writing a book for children entitled "Lily's Lab Lesson," which encourages young people to explore a career within the medical laboratory.
I hope to continue to shine this little light of mine, that God in His grace has given to me, in a dark and dying world. Whatever the impact, I pray that, as He has been a blessing to me, I will pass the baton throughout this Life Race and be a blessing to others as well.
Is there anything you'd like to know? Or a message you'd like to convey?
Please feel free to send me an email and I'll be happy to respond.
Many thanks and blessings!
