Melissa Owens Author Interview

What was the idea, or spark, that first set off the need to write A Black Woman’s Journey

I wrote the book so young African American Woman know its ok to make mistakes due to not having a positive male role model in there life. Let them know they are still beautiful no matter what makes they make.

I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

It was hard writing all the stories especially because I can relate to almost all of them. The hardest story to writer was the first one, because This was my story and I experienced it before I even turned 18 years old.

What is one piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you were younger?

Before you jump into a relationship with someone, take a few months to get to know them and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?

Its ok to make mistakes, just learn from them and move on. Never look backwards, just continue to move forward.

Growing up, I didn’t have a male role model in my life. My father was hardly around, my brother was in/out of prison, and my uncles had their own families to support mentally and emotionally, so I didn’t have a good man in my life to show me what “Real Love” is, and I ended up learning a lot the hard way. I blame none of my mistakes I made on anyone, but a young black woman needs a “Good male Role Model” to show her the difference between “Salt and Sugar”. After reading my book you will totally understand why.
