I was reading Lazaretto by Diane McKinney Whetstone when I decided to start writing my fourth novel, which is my first attempt at historical fiction. Bernice McFadden, Terry McMillan, Zora Neale Hurston, Judy Blume, Toni Morrison and Bebe Moore Campbell were some of my early influencers. I do like enjoy books by writers such as Khaled Hosseini, Jesmyn Ward, Kayanna Mathis and Yaa Gyasi​. I do like to read books that I can enjoy as a reader but learn from as a writer.(less)

“Trust me, Bea, you are on your way. It’s about acknowledging where you are and knowing that you are okay. The universe has your back and so do I.”
Sadeqa Johnson, And Then There Was Me

“Warren was the first man who pried her open without permission, kissed away her shame, and dismissed that which she deemed ugly. The connection between them was fierce, and she felt revered by his attention and care.”
Sadeqa Johnson, Love in a Carry-on Bag

“I know betrayal can unravel a man. I learned early on from watching my parents that men are capable of doing terrible things to women when they feel deceived. When the bubble of trust and honesty bursts, nothing is off-limits.”
Sadeqa Johnson, Second House from the Corner
