Girl Naw Blog Tour
Meet LaCricia A’ngelle, author of Girl, Naw!
Tell us about Girl, Naw!
Girl, Naw! is the story of Antoinette Walker, a Christian counselor for women. The story outlines the lives of the women Antoinette counsels as well as her own life and issues. Antoinette takes a special interest in one of her clients that will lead to some unexpected decisions. Being confronted with people from her past that have hurt her in various ways, Antoinette is challenged to forgive them in order to possess the freedom she desires.
How did you come up with ideas for this book?
Similar to Antoinette I was in a position in which I was asked to counsel many people. On several occasions I noticed some of these people viewed my life as being perfect, which raised the question -who counsels the counselor. That thought was the basis for Girl, Naw!
Who are your main character(s)?
My main characters are Antoinette Walker, Maurice Walker- Antoinette's husband, Yvette King -Antoinette's best friend,
Did you have a favorite character(s)? Who and why?
My favorite character is definitely Yvette. I like Yvette because she is so funny. She says whatever is on her mind, and although she has an odd way of saying things, she actually makes sense. She reminds me a lot of myself.
Did you have to do quite a bit of research for this novel?
No, I didn't do a lot of research for Girl, Naw! I relied on past experiences for myself and others that I know.
What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading Girl, Naw?
I hope readers will learn the power of true forgiveness. I also hope reading Girl, Naw! will help people to not be so judgmental of others because we never really know what's going on behind the scenes of someone's life.
