Latest Work: Fortune & Fame
Jasmine Cox Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams have been through a lot together—from fighting for their husbands to become the head of the American Baptist Coalition to getting mixed up in a terrible murder. Now the frenemies have found themselves the stars of First Ladies, a much anticipated new reality television show.
Jasmine balks at the idea of airing her dirty laundry on national TV, but Rachel sees it as the perfect opportunity to take her brand to the next level. And if Rachel is in, so is Jasmine. All the cast members are women of God—how much drama can there be?
Rachel and Jasmine know their own pasts are murky, but they’ll seem like choir girls when the secrets and sins of the others come to light. The two will once again have to form an unholy alliance to go up against these so-called Godly women who see the show as their chance to take them down—at any cost.
A Family Affair
Olivia Dawson has watched her mother struggle her whole life. For as long as she can remember, it’s been just the two of them, trying to make ends meet. When Olivia finally gets her big break—acceptance into Julliard—she chooses not to go because she would rather stay home to take care of her sickly mother and help pay the bills, instead of pursuing her dream.
When Olivia’s mother finds out that her daughter has abandoned her dream, however, she reveals a shocking secret: Olivia’s father is alive and doing very well for himself. Olivia decides to track down the man that might be her father, and confront him about the lifelong deception.
Bernard Wells is a wealthy business owner—his success partly due to his marriage to a beautiful heiress and socialite. And predictably, he handles Olivia’s reentry into his life the same way he handles everything: by throwing money at the problem. But this tactic can only work for so long before the truth comes to light, bringing surprising revelations—and healing—for everyone.
The Motherhood Diaries
As the working mother of three children, ReShonda Tate Billingsley knows motherhood isn’t a perfect science. She openly shares stories with her thousands of followers on social media about her children: thirteen-year-old Mya, the diva whose Instagram post—and subsequent punishment— went viral; to ten-year-old Morgan, who has a serious case of middle-child syndrome and a knack for giving her teachers a few of her mother’s favorite things; and finally, Myles, a witty and precocious five-year-old who, as his grandmother says, “has been here before.” It was while chronicling her journey that she discovered she wasn’t the only mother who longed for the days when she could use the restroom in peace, who sometimes sat in the driveway because she didn’t want to go in the house, and who sometimes wondered, Is this what I signed up for? Hence, The Motherhood Diaries was born.
Through humorous and enlightening dialogue and narrative, ReShonda chronicles her own journey, as well as reveals candid imperfections of a mother trying to balance it all. With humorous and heartwarming stories from other mothers also trying to “get it right,”The Motherhood Diaries shares candid and honest conversations about the good, the bad and the downright disastrous path of mothering in the New Millennium.
