Author/Book Spotlight – Min. Sonja Carney

Minister Sonja was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Her deliverance ministry, Prison 2 Praise, has carried her all over the world including London, Uganda, and Dubai as she desires to heal the brokenhearted and set the captive free. Her ministry ‘Prison to Praise’ was birthed from a 12-year drug addiction. During her mess, she never lost sight of the messenger – Jesus Christ!!!

In her drug addiction, she would leave the crack house singing, “His Eyes are on the Sparrow.” After a while, she found it difficult to get high because people no longer wanted her to sing and recite scriptures to them. One night Minister Sonja had a Damascus Road experience, and she cried out to God to send her to jail until she could change. After that night, she went to jail for a six-month sentence, which turned into a three-year prison stint. It was in prison that God broke the stronghold of crack that was over her, and she surrendered her life to Christ. She later became the director of the Victory Voices Choir, an all-male-inmate choir that traveled to different churches to sing praises and give their testimonies. The Victory Voices is also the organization that began the Ministry relationship with Atty John Price(the same District Attorney that sent Min Sonja to prison in the late 90s).

In 2006, Minister Sonja served as an Assistant Pastor for one year at Greater First Street Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Norris P. Johnson in Nashville, TN. She has participated in outreach efforts as well. She is a motivational speaker and travels throughout the country encouraging others. Minister Sonja believes that she was delivered from drugs and living in the streets to help someone else become healed, delivered, and set free. She lives a life devoted to assisting those who want to make a positive change in their lives. Minister Sonja is the author of ‘From Prison to Praise’(her life story of being an overcomer) and ”I am a Woman Empowered’!

She has an Associate’s degree in Theology from Emmanuel Baptist College. She is a licensed ordained minister, currently serving as Associate Minister of Cedar Grove Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee under the leadership of Elder Monte Lester.

Book Spotlight – A State of Affairs Deception – Dr. AudreyAnn Moses

Which five words best describe A STATE OF AFFAIRS: DECEPTION?

Can you share one highlight from the book? 

 If you can remember the character, Mr. Peterson, in book 1, Uninvited Memories was not happy at the appearance of Scotty. Mr. Peterson is Italian and retired from both the Air Force and Post Office. He was very clear, in both books, that he had the ability to “make Scotty disappear.” In this book, he was very unhappy to find out that Scotty was still in Atlanta, and, Natalee would have to see him again because he is somehow involved in the case she is investigating. In a couple areas of Book 2 the distrust Mr. Peterson has for Scottie comes to Natalee’s mind, and she has to question if he might be right in his assumptions 
What is the purpose of this book?

The purpose of this book is two-fold. First, it continues the mystery of Scottie and whether the sight of him brings back, not only uninvited memories but memories that make her ask the “what if” question one too many times. Second, I wanted to help people see how personality disorders are prevalent among us, and maybe in us.
 Are there themes that you find turn up again and again in your work? A common thread?

When I was younger I didn’t like romance novels, unless there was something more than romance going on. My ‘something’ is some disorder that causes havoc for the person and the family until it is resolved. It could be one or more of the issues physical, mental, relational, or spiritual. Normally, it’s a combination of one and spiritual. Humans don’t seem to realize how important it is to be healthy in all four areas in order to be whole.

Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? Which part was the hardest?

I’ll talk about the hardest first… In my other books, I managed to let my characters have fun while they were dealing with their disabilities. This book was hard for me because the main topic was harassment onboard a naval vessel. The navy was my happy place so I struggled with how conniving they were and how angry Dr. Morgan was. I had to change the tone several times before I got it right. I also I enjoyed writing the conversations between Dr. Morgan and Commander Scott. She remained angry enough to keep one step ahead of him. Also, I enjoyed writing the conversations in the Chief’s Mess. It reminded me of when I onboard ship in the Chief’s Mess.
Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?

You want me to tell you all my secrets. I would have to say that, no matter how much I tell them, people still don’t believe that I’m an introvert. I do things in front of people all the time, but afterward, I need a moment or two or three alone together myself. Crowds pull a lot of my energy.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Writing a book can be just as much fun as reading one. Just let your imagination tell your pen who your characters are. Bring them to life and let them tell the story. And remember, if you don’t enjoy reading your books…re-write them until you do. Then you will know that others will enjoy it also. God Bless you and HAPPY WRITING.

A State of Affairs: Deception is Book 2 of my Earl Grey Chronicles Series in which Dr. Natalee Morgan is the top investigator for The Honorable Congresswoman Constance Abraham of Georgia. Natalee is a retired Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy. In Book 1, Uninvited Memories. Because of her experience with the Navy, she has been assigned to investigate a letter received from the mother of a sailor onboard the USS GREENWOOD LAKE. The letter urges Congresswoman Abraham to aggressively investigate harassment and discrimination that has been directed toward her son. As she begins her investigation in State of Affairs: Deception, Dr. Morgan encounters three issues. First, how is she to react to the sudden appearance of an old love who broke her heart 20+ years ago? Second, how does she find answers when they are hidden all over a United States Navy vessel? The third and most disconcerting…nothing is ever as it seems.
