She’ll discuss and sign the latest in her Seven Deadly Sins series, Envy!  The book tour kicks-off right here in DC so grab a friend, a sorority sister, or a colleague and join us for an amazing event.

About the book Envy: 

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

Gabrielle Wilson has the perfect life: a Beverly Hills mansion, a loving family, and a massively successful PR firm. When her father admits that an affair he had years before resulted in a daughter, Gabrielle is shocked, but is actually happy. Could this be the sister she has been praying for all her life?

Keisha Jones’s life is a struggle. Her late mother worked on the streets, and school was its own nightmare. When Gabrielle offers to fly Keisha out of Arkansas to meet the family, Keisha instantly agrees. But Gabrielle doesn’t realize that Keisha has known about the Wilsons for years. Keisha is determined to have everything she has always envied, and nothing can stand in her way.”
