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)
