A Story About Love And Acceptance

Newton Vanriel Author Interview

The Adventures of the Soul Sistas: or How the Sisters Changed the World, follows the lives of two people who want to have a family and end up adopting two baby girls of different races.

The art in this book is fantastic. What was the art collaboration process like with illustrator Monique Ra Brent?

It was an amazing collaboration in terms of her vision was exactly mine – a story about love and acceptance in a world that judges. We went through the process picture by picture to get the right “soul” of the book. She had painted a picture of my wife 7 years ago – thus began the discussion of working on the book

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

For me…this is more than promoting a book. It is a movement of acceptance. I see young and old people relating to this book – I have heard people say “I see myself in this book.” I had done research before the book – for it to be sensitive to the adoption community.

Is this the first book in the series? If so, when is the next book coming out and what can your fans expect in the next story?

It is my first book – I am currently completing the second book – for end of year/new year (a comic look-superhero book)

Charm and Dawn are soul sistas from the heart. They share everything and have the best adventures on their Spirit family farm. When their parents, Alexandra and Nathan, adopted them from birth—first Charm, then Dawn—the two girls were by each other’s sides from day one.

But living in a rural town, not everyone saw the true beauty of the Spirit family. Polite but distant, the town was wary of a Black family with two diverse daughters—one Black and one white. Charm and Dawn, though, knew that this was really a superpower, and they created their own world to show others how great it is to be part of the soul sista’s dynamics.

The Adventures of the Soul Sistas celebrates diversity and the true meaning of family through the eyes of two wonderful superheroes.
