About the Author

Introducing renowned authors like Toni Morrison, starting a successful company, self-publishing, promoting, and selling thousands of copies of her own novels without the help of any staff, are just some of Dr. Trevy McDonald's many noteworthy accomplishments.

Trevy says her greatest passion and life's purpose is to use her God-given gifts and talents to uplift, inspire, and empower people in an entertaining and informative way, which brings them joy. She pursues her passion and life purpose through her successful Journalism career.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Trevy earned her B.A. in Radio/TV/Film. After having enough of the cold winters, she headed South to Chapel Hill, North Carolina where she received her M.A. in Radio, Television, and Motion Pictures and a Ph.D. in Mass Communication Research from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina. She was only 25 years old when she earned her Ph.D. from one of the top Journalism programs in the country.

After receiving her Ph.D., she was unemployed and therefore asked herself what she could do to make herself more marketable. Trevy immediately built the groundwork for a publishing company, which she started in 1999. She is currently the owner of Reyomi Publishing, LLC, a successful independent book publishing and consulting company based in Durham N.C.

Trevy is the author of the novels, Round 'Bout Midnight and Time Will Tell, and is the co-editor of two scholarly anthologies, Nature of a Sistuh: Black Women's Lived Experiences in Contemporary Culture and Building Diverse Communities: Applications of Communication Research, and an inspirational anthology titled How We Got Over: Testimonies of Faith, Hope and Courage. She has contributed to numerous anthologies and publications, and has also co-authored a reference book on starting your own publishing house called How to Win the Publishing Game.

Through her experience starting and running her own publishing company, she learned her most valuable lesson: If one is committed and steps out on faith to pursue their dream, then they will also be blessed with the resources to be able to carry out their dream. She simply states this lesson in the form of a haiku.

Trevy is an associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Media and Journalism. Prior to joining the faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill, she taught communication courses at North Carolina State University, North Carolina Central University, and Spertus College. She has been a panelist, guest speaker and lecturer for special events hosted by both professional and university organizations.

Trevy is passionate about diversity and media. Among the many courses she teaches, her favorite to teach is a course entitled Diversity and Communication, which explores representations, roles and responsibilities with regards to marginalized groups and mainstream American media. Most recently, she has been collecting the oral histories of Black journalists who covered key events during the Civil Rights Movement.

Trevy is a member of the Society of Midland Authors, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. In 2008, she received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and is one of sixteen out of over two hundred Distinguished Alumni Award recipients who has also received the Outstanding Young Alumni Award (1997).

Trevy also plans to record a spoken word piece and create a feature-length screenplay of a poem she wrote entitled "Twin Souls." Her ultimate goal is to earn a Pulitzer Prize for a novel and to direct her own feature film.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was very relative to my high school years. I could easily identify to the different relationships that the girls experienced with each other as well as with their guy friends.

The title is definetly fitting for the content of the book. It is very interesting, I was eager to find out what happens next. The subject matter is factual, there are plenty of women who have experienced some of the same trials. 'Time Will Tell,' is novel that speaks not only for the black woman, but all women universally.

I felt the book was very intresting in how it expressed friendships use to be. We live in a world today, were trusting in a friendship can be very limited. There is always someone waiting around to stab you in the back. Instead of your friends sharing in your success, many try to sabatoge what you have accomplished. The romance part of the novel was also very good in showing the ups and downs of relationships.

I feel the novel has covered issues a lot of black women experience. The title justifies the book's content. True love and secrets are revealed over time.

Although this book is not a book I would normally read, I found that it contains values and situations that are not confined to any one type of individual or race. The underlying theme of adversity and female friendships shines. I found it a cleaver piece of work using song titles as chapter titles which helped guide the read into each new chapter. As previously mentioned, the typos should have been removed for they took from the storyline and made the reading that much more difficult in the beginning.

created a great story in the novel 'Time will Tell' Where three friends stayed together through thick or thin. A story where no matter who you are or where you're from or plan to go you could find yourself relating to on eof the story's characters. Sina,a woman whose character the average black woman can relate to in some form or fashion. Strong and determined to survive despite the hand that life dealt to her. The characters of Rachel and Hope were also interesting, Rachel, looking for love in all the wrong places and Hope's overbearing superior attitude, who had the nerve to buy her on engagement ring is annoying but hilarious. Despite a few typographical errors this novel was entertaining and suspenseful. I look forward to reading the sequel.

In the beginning of the book I was bored and angry that someone would actually write and publish such a terrible story. As the story progressed and the characters developed my feelings changed toward the story. Despite of all the grammar errors, I honestly enjoyed reading Time Will Tell. I am looking foward to the sequel.

I thought that Time Will Tell was a great book. At first, I had a hard time following the storyline, because the author jumped from one thing to the next. Also, there were many typographical errors. But other than that,I enjoyed the book. I really liked how their friendship survived all of those years.They all went through a lot, but somehow they managed to survive, and still were the best of friends. I especially liked Sina's role in the book. She had some tragic experiences, but she still managed to overcome all of that and still rise to the top. I would recommend this book to other women,because I am sure they could relate to it.We all have had everlasting friendships in our lives
