God inspired girl power books is a dream come true for Shawneda. She has loved reading and writing since she can remember. Some of her favorite memories involve propping up her feet with a book (electronic or print) in her hands. She is the author of thirteen published books including IT'S IN MY BLOOD (2009 SORMAG award nominee for Christian Fiction) and MY TRUE ESSENCE which has reached #1 (over 200,000 downloads) on Amazon's medical fiction category several times.

God provides inspiration for her stories through everyday life, family, friends and her own personal challenges. She utilizes Print on Demand and Ebook technology to share her stories with readers with as small a carbon foot print as possible. Watch, read and listen to her media interviews here.
