About The Book

In My Sister, My Momma, My Wife, Pastor Stiles Graham is moving on up in the ministry. The membership at Holy Rock has grown tremendously, and Stiles discovers that with more sheep, the duties of the shepherd become more intense, and the hours are even longer.

Stiles is also the proud father of a little girl by his wife, Detria. To provide the lifestyle he desires for his daughter, Stiles continues his teaching role, but at a new college, LeMoyne Owen, where he accepts the position of adjunct professor of African American Studies. Time away from home, means Detria is spending time alone. There’s a saying, “When the cats away, the mice will play.”

Although he loves his role as daddy, Stile doesn’t act so happy when it comes to his role as husband. His mind continues to torment him with thoughts about his ex-wife, Rena. But Rena seems to have moved on with her life in Andover, Massachusetts with none other than teacher and coach Robert Becton. Has she finally let go of her past and fully stepped into a new and promising future?

Stiles is further stunned beyond belief when he uncovers secrets that have been hidden  away about the Graham family. During his quest to forget those things that lie behind, Stiles is hit with an unbelievable bombshell when he accidentally discovers startling revelations and truths about both his parents, his sister, Francesca (Frankie) and his new wife, Detria.

What does this man of God do when it seems that the enemy is pulling out all stops to destroy everything that he has believed in, including God’s mercy and grace?

A&RBC: What is your favorite genre of books?
Shelia: I like Christian fiction and general fiction novels.

A&RBC: Are you an avid or occasional reader?

Shelia: Jay California Cooper. I love her style of writing and she has been in the literary industry a long long time. I have never had the privilege of meeting her, but she has been a literary idol of mine since I first picked up one of her books and read it. I want to pick her brain and listen to her words of literary wisdom.

A&RBC: If you could make a movie out of one of your books, which one would it be?
Shelia: Into Each Life. Into Each Life is one of my all time favorite books. I can 'see' it on the big screen.
