I wrote Unconditional Counsel, which deals with relationships: marriage, fornication, infidelity, divorce, sexual immorality and a relationship with God. “It was tough to look at myself and identify the parts I played in every relationship I experienced over the years of my life.” Erica Vaughn.
Sin consumes Erica as her marriage is falling apart. With a murderer lurking; her life is anything but drama free. Erica loves her family, but she doesn’t know how to love herself and how can that be love? She finds herself in turmoil with every relationship and the most important relationship, which should be with God, is in the most trouble. Amid the lies and uncertainty, time reveals truth, and lives will change forever. Some will learn you cannot live this life without God; even if it is your belief; not to believe.
This Drama, Mystery, Thriller; rescues the notion that in love and war, destiny is never lost. Unconditional Counsel is transparent and allows the reader to understand that even in the worst of times, God is present to help you fight the good fight of faith. You must find the strength to make it through every storm, trial, broken-heart, and injustice. The only way is through Wise Counsel.

Apocalyptic 7 - Salvation's Cry
The Apocalyptic 7—Salvations’ Cry (A7) are on a journey of discovery, who they are as individuals and as a team. They must learn to trust each other, trust themselves and most of all, put their faith and trust in God. Their mission: ‘The Little Horn They Must Find—the antichrist’. They have been dispatched to thwart the Apollyon’s plans to bring about their world domination but along the way, their missions are interrupted by Black Rain and their individual battles with each other. Will they succeed and who is sacrificed for the cause? Faith is their only chance of survival through the missions ahead of them. A7 is a fictional story of Epic Battles between God’s earthly warriors for the cross and demonic forces who threaten to destroy the world. It uses scripture-based truths and gives a glimpse into how we have come so far as a society, yet people still don’t believe the Holy Scriptures to be true. Unexplained events taking place around the world are in the Holy Scriptures in plain view, but we know some will be deceived.

My mom, Margo E. Leonard, wrote this book. After all, she is the artistic one. She could draw, write, make and decorate cakes, and crochet dolls. After her stroke in 2005, she didn’t remember that she wrote it. She went home to be with the Lord, February 6th, 2020. I dedicate this to her in Life.
Set in the 1950s to early 70s, this story encompasses the embodiment of the Hollywood Theater and Fashion Scene. This Romance Thriller takes you on the journey down Phil's memory lane. Beth and Bess join the journey to discover love and pain can be on both sides of the relationship coin.
The Ghosts of Slavery's Dance
"All slaves have a story to tell. Millions will never get the chance due to death by hanging, lynching and any other forms of murderous torture that were used in those days. Now, I know stories about the Slavery War have been told over and over again, but this one hasn’t been because my great-grandmother was the only survivor of it in all her family. Meaning, she was the last one in my family to be a slave and still alive to tell the story.” ~Nakida
“If it wasn’t for my great-grand-daughter asking so many questions and really wanting to know where she comes from, I probably would have taken my story to the grave as well. Slavery was a nasty business and I learned firsthand of the hurt and pain that it caused for those being taken and the families who lost their loved ones and were left behind. As much as I didn’t understand what happened to me, I am somewhat amazed at the outcome.” ~Nakdi

Apocalyptic 8 - Angels of heavens army-WIP
ISBN - TBD
Apocalyptic 8: Angels of Heaven's Armies continues as Mr. Zinkes (Sariel), Sublime, Euphrates, Xerxes, Shadow, Leopard, Minah Bird, Mr. Jacob, Mr. Lyemel, and Mr. Laemel have fulfilled their mission on earth. Joshua and Surya remain the Witnesses. Because 8 in the Bible represents a new beginning, meaning a new order or creation, and man's true 'born again' event when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life, now standing in heaven before the God of Heaven's Armies, Sariel covers them while the transformation into Guardians take place, and given alternative names: Nefesh, Ruach, Yechida, Chayah, Neshama, Binah, Israel, Malak, and Malach. Their stay in heaven is short-lived, when transported to the Holy Mountain in Mongol, and Gabriel the Messenger, says, "The God of Heaven's Armies has instructed, you must declare against the Seven Churches: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodiceans." When Chief Priest Anai Bethlem comes up missing for the second time, the Apocalyptic 8 discovers the Seven Cell Leaders are targets. They all hold a secret to a written scroll the Apollyon need to find. Within them opens the world to greater destruction before Jesus returns. A8 is the conclusion of the matter. The rapture has come and the trumpets are sounding.
THE CONTAINER - WIP
ISBN - TBD
The overbearing alarm is screaming; triumphant in its attempt in waking her from a deep horrifying dream. Orange and yellow rays show through the curtains, blinding her as she rises in hatred of her subconscious experience. Her heart pounding but reducing speed, she grabs her face slapping the sides to ensure she was awake as the dread subsides. Throwing the covers to the side to release her from the temporary trap she felt. Grabbing her charcoal grey colored robe and putting on the slippers of the same color, she walks over to the window, flinging open the curtains to engulf the room with light to dispel any evil that remained from the dream. Accepting the suns’ rays to warm her soul. Children outside riding their bikes through the fall leaves—it was Hallows Day.
Opposing Fruit - WIP
ISBN - TBD
Opposing Fruit is an analog of life in marriage. When opposites attract in more ways than one, it can sometimes be bitter sweet. Bitter because a person changes into someone you don't recognize or you deny that anything's changed. Sweet because some changes are good for the betterment of a marriage.
Opposing Fruit is what's opposite of The Fruits of the Spirit, which are: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. When those opposites are spiritual and clash; how do you navigate the waters? What is your response when your spouse rejects you in ways that leave you emotionally and physically wanting? What do you do when you have to wait on God?
Opposing Fruit is a journey of discovery on how to deal with rejection without compromising your salvation and God's plan for your life.
