About the Author

Married at sixteen, a mother twice by seventeen, and thrice a mother and divorced by twenty-four, Adrienne Thompson is no stranger to adversity. Not your typical teenage mother, she went on to complete her college degree and to earn her nursing license. She attributes God's faithfulness as the catalyst for her success in life. Now, having raised two children as a divorced mother, with a third fast-approaching adulthood, she is sharing a long hidden talent and passion with the world. Using the lessons that life has so expertly taught her as a guideline (betrayal, abusive relationships, self-esteem issues, witnessing the deteriorating effects of drug abuse), she has created stories that will both entertain and inspire the reader. Adrienne currently resides in Arkansas with her daughter. Formerly an RN, she now writes and publishes her stories full time. She is also a motivational speaker.

Janice Ross was born in Guyana, South America and migrated to the USA in 1980. Although her citizenship certificate now reads the United States of America, she considers herself a citizen of the world. Sure she has not physically been around the world and back, but she's travelled in her mind and dreams. Janice enjoys Zumba, Kickboxing, and most exercise classes. When she's not pushing her physical limits, Janice spends time working on her craft, as well as lending a hand to other aspiring writers.

Nicole Dunlap holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Child Development, and a Masters Degree in Educational Counseling from Azusa Pacific University. She lives her dream of counseling in the inner city of San Bernardino; motivating teens dealing with depression, pregnancy, gang membership and abuse. But, she admits to two passions-writing being her first love. She has been self dubbed the "gumbo genre" novelist, because books shouldn't be lightly seasoned... Her stories revolve around family and relationships, women's issues, drizzled with drama, peppered with suspense, and finished off with aromatic notes of romance. The Shaw Family Saga pays homage to dysfunctional mother-daughter relationships, with well developed characters that readers can root for; love them, hate them, cry for, and most of all, yearn to flip through the pages to the end of that character's journey.

I I enjoyed reading the short stories of these six women as they shared their affairs of the heart and learned to simply prioritize what is  important in life. All seemed to understand the need for their spirituality as a source of strength whether dealing with being overworked; in an abusive relationship or in recovery from the onslaught of repeated disappointments. They all emerge victorious. Well-done and a free read.  Lynn M.

“Just Between Us-Inspiring Stories Told by Women” is an okay read at best. Every story any woman can relate to in one way or another, whether it’s you or someone you may know that may have went through it. Selena Haskins tells her story though a scripture and the symbolism of what it represents is enough for any woman to understand. Tamika Christy tells her story of love and loss but the story itself was too short and lacked background information. Ms. Thompson's story was a very personal glimpse into her life. At times the story is a little choppy due to an unclear timeline. There are also a few editing issues within her story. Overall it was a good story. Janice Ross’ story was the one I had the most difficult time with. Her story was told in descriptive words, poetic if you will, but failed in the fact that it was just confusing. It was overly descriptive. Nicole Dunlap’s story had a good premise but it was just was too short to really hit the mark. T.M. Brown’s story kind of jumped all over the place. Also, she noted her story is something that she didn’t share in her first book. Many readers of this anthology may not have read that book. Reviewed by: LeonaR

I enjoyed reading from these six good author's... their version of 'Life.' They all really had some inspiring short stories about their personal and important moment in their lives that were a good encouragement to all who reads for it. Be ready for a stories of "self doubt, challenges and disappointments." I found each author anthology had its own unique and personal message with such a deep lesson that was learned from their own particular lives. Each ones life's weren't perfect but they were able to rise above it all so well....and look at them now definitely having over come the odds. I believe each of these author showed that they wrote from their heart with each intimate story showing such emotions that can be conquered. These are definitely stories that can be related and pass on to others who are dealing with such issues such as 'hardships, love, conflict, loss, redemption and the salvation through God's healing love." What I especially like from this novel .... I liked how these authors were able to share with their readers about such details that will help others that were definitely written with love showing us your openness and honesty. Great job to all of you! Here are the six short story titles by these authors... Mirror Don't Lie- Selena Haskins For the Love of Your-Tamika Christy Epiphany-Adrienne Thompson Love Letters to Jahdai- Janice Ross Falling for the One-Nichole Dunlap Tinaah-T.M. Brown I recommend you pick up this read "Just Between Us: Inspiring Stories by Women."
