I felt compelled to share my
journey regarding the loss of my own son, and the miracle that took place after
his passing. I simply want to let other women
, who have lost children, know that there
is still
light at the end of the tunnel.
What inspired you to write this book?
Losing my innocent baby. My
son who I never got to see his eyes, feel his heart beating in my arms. I
carried him 36 weeks, I had never heard of anyone losing a child that late in a

whether through early pregnancy, miscarriage or stillbirth, to have hope.
Excerpt from Forever
King: Surviving the loss of my unborn child:
I looked at
her in total disbelief. This was a dream, a nightmare, a sick joke. This could
not be happening to me. I am a child of God. I serve at my church, I was on the

wanted my son!

No, I currently work as a
Patient Liaison working with Physicians and patients. I also bake delicious
cupcakes! For this project, I wrote late at night into the early hours of the
morning. If you are committed to making this happen, it will happen.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
For me, it’s the truth.
Currently we live in a world where there is so much dishonesty. No connection
to reality and the truth is the only thing than bring balance, security, and
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a teacher.
I would line up my dolls, and teddy bears and would read out loud to them. I
have always been a leader who wanted to help people.
