I Am Rahab: A Novel (Trilogy Box Set) (Author Interview)


I Am Rahab looks like a great coming of age trilogy.  Can you tell us a little about the main character Rahab?

Rahab Auguste is a sweet and innocent young girl from Louisiana who happens to be a part of a dysfunctional family hiding dark secrets. When Rahab loses her grandmother, she's abruptly removed from the comforts of home and embarks on a journey down a path she never saw coming, with a mother she never knew. Thrown into the heart of the ghetto and forced to carry her family's burdens, Rahab must learn how to hustle for a living. Her soul cries for freedom. Ultimately, she has to decide either to continue dancing with the devil she knows, or take a leap of faith into the unknown.

How long did it take you to write I Am Rahab?

Five years, I wrote it while caring for my mother.

What inspired you when writing I Am Rahab

The characters came to life while I was writing. They entertained me and kept me from focusing on the fact that my mother's life was slipping away. The thought of creating a world where I could hide from this one provoked me to write as long as I did. The characters kept me company up until the very end.  My mother passed away but left me with a series to share with the world.

Why did you decide to become a writer?

Writing chose me. I'm shy/quiet so I have a lot to say.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I bake cakes. I'm a baker by trade. Owning a bakery is definitely on my bucket list of things to do.
