Black Christian Fiction Authors Parade! Dwan Abrams

Welcome to the third week of black Christian author parade. I'm delighted to be reposting from Patricia Wooside at Readin N Writin with Patricia.

Check out all of her reviews on her blog!


Today's author on parade is Dwan Abrams.

Dwan Abrams is like a multi-faceted gemstone. There are so many sides to her, almost too many to count.

The woman is an author, freelance editor, publisher, writing coach, professional speaker and former radio show host.

That's not to mention being a mentor to middle school students, a community volunteer, a former fashion editor, a frequent writing conference panelist, a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and a mom.

Dwan began her publishing career with the release of Only True Love Waitswhich went on to become a bestseller and won the 2007 Pen of the Writer POWER Award for Best Fiction. (It will be rereleased this summer by Urban Christian.

She has written several other award-winning novels, publishing as a self-published author as well as with both small and large presses.

Divorcing the Devil peeked at #1 on the Black Expressions Christian Fiction Bestsellers list and has consistently ranked in its Top 25 Fiction Bestsellers list.

It also ranked #1 on the Top 25 Black Christian Book Distributors Independent Publishers Bestsellers list and was nominated for a 2008 African American Literary Award. (RH: Awesome!)

Other books from Dwan include My Mother's Child, the sequel to Divorcing the Devil, Married Strangers, first book in the Married series, and The Scream Within.

Most recently she penned the 2nd book in the Married series, When the Fairytale Ends, a 2011 release:

What happens when the fairytale ends and real life begins? Greg and Shania will find out the hard way.

Young, successful, and thriving, Shania and Greg have the type of relationship that most people only dream about. Greg enjoys working as a youth pastor at his church and making a difference in the lives of troubled teens. After receiving some unexpected news, however, Greg's manhood takes a devastating blow.
