Some of you may know that I have been working on a novella with fellow author Mario D. King. Well, “Where Do We Go From Here” is now available on Amazon.com for only .99.
Last year, a startling statistic was released that 72% of African American babies were born to unwed mothers. Mario and I wondered what would become of those babies? What type of environment were they conceived in and what type of environment would they be raised in? How can we tell their story? What evolved was a lustfully exciting tale that examines what can happen when two people intertwine their lives and their bodies with no intention of creating a future together. This novella is entertaining encouragement to make wise decisions in our relationships/interactions because sometimes our actions have life-altering consequences. I must warn you that this is not one of my usual Christian offerings but it still has an inspirational message we felt must be told. Read more about it here.
Within 24 hours of the book being released, we received out first review from fellow author Derrick L. Randall.
I could not and desired not stop reading until I finished. An absolutely rich and engaging read, Where Do We Go From Here, is dynamically relatable. It is a profound tale of the importance of individual, relationship, and cultural choices. It embodies twists and turns right out of the reader’s personal and unspoken experiences.
As a writer, I am inspired to write. As a reader, I am excitedly awaiting the story to continue. As a self-proclaimed 2k15 “Hippie”, I am sho’nuff groovy now. It was exactly what I needed.
Salute…Jae Henderson and Mario D. King

Before I became a book author, I was a radio personality and talk show producer and host. I am proud to announce that I am co-hosting a new blog talk show for those who love the Lord and literature as much as I do. Please tune in as me and my co-host, fellow author Ta’Mara Nicole, discuss our first topic, Spirituality vs. Religion. Is there a difference and if there is, which one most fits you?
Our special guest will be Dr. Eugene Gibson, Jr. He is the Pastor of Olivet Fellowship Baptist Church in Memphis, TN. He is also a professor at Memphis Theological Seminary, and teaches annually at McCormick Theological Seminary and United Theological Seminary. Last but not least, he is the author of Courage Under Fire.
I’m 38 today and so grateful to be alive. It’s been a challenging year, but I really have nothing to complain about: I feel good, I look good, I’m happy, I’m healthy, I’m financially stable and I have wonderful people who love me in my life! Thank you Jesus! Happy Birthday to me!
I used to do something called “Things I’ve Learned” each year on my birthday. I think today is a good day to revisit that. Although, instead of sharing the number of years in my life (I’ve got way more years now LOL) I’ll just do twelve. Feel free to pass them on.
Be grateful. It is the most powerful and thoughtful means of saying THANK YOU!
Adversity will come and go. It’s your job to make sure you stay put!
The man you want may not always be the man you need but a smart woman makes the man she needs the man she wants.
Do not entertain foolishness because it takes up too much time and energy.
You are entitled to your feelings. Make no apology for how you feel , but don’t expect others to always agree with your feelings because they are entitled to the same.
Your circle of friends will decrease when your love for yourself increases.
When the one person who loves you more than life leaves this earth, cling to the love they left behind in your life. You’ll find it in the care they gave you, the lessons they taught you, and the people they introduced to you. **
Grief is a form of therapy. Allow your tears to heal your soul.
Remembering WHO you are and WHOSE you are will help motivate you to greatness. Daughters and sons of The Most High King have no business at the bottom.
Your gifts are meant to be shared. You do the world a disservice by not doing so. We were created to be a blessing to others.
Laziness is a disease that you must purge from your very being. It serves no positive purpose. It only prohibits you from operating in the greatness God has instilled in each of us.
A shack can seem like a palace when you put it in perspective and employ positive thinking. You could be on the street.
BONUS: Money can’t buy you happiness but poverty can make you miserable. Go get some ends so you can one day buy that palace.
** Thank you to everyone who said a prayer and supported me through what has been the fight of my life and my most devastating loss. I love you and miss you mommy!! Rest in peace. There’s no suffering on the other side.

When I first started writing a man asked me what genre were my novels and when I replied inspirational romance he replied, “Isn’t that an oxymoron?” This was the first of many such encounters where I found myself explaining what exactly inspirational romance is. The simplest definition I can give is that inspirational romance is the edgier side of Christian romance. I often push the envelope of Christian fiction and romance with the actions of my characters. However, it never ceases to amaze me that most people assume that romance ALWAYS includes sex and if I’m writing about romance/sex it must be immoral. It is times such as these that I take the opportunity to enlighten others.
1.God created sex. Sex itself is neither dirty nor immoral. It is a beautiful physical expression of love and/or desire two people have for one another and a necessary process for procreation that was intended between a man and his wife. It is the context in which people choose to have sex which leads to immorality and chaos. All we have to do is look at all the calamity that has come into play from sex being used outside of God’s will to know this is true. There is tons of data about the astronomical number of children being born out of wedlock and the also astronomical number of STDs being passed around the globe. We can even go deeper and cite sources about the emotional and developmental challenges that children who do not have both parents in the home often face. This is not to say that we would not have illegitimate children being born or STDs if everyone having sex were married. People have been having sex outside of their marriages for eons but I’m willing to gamble that the numbers would be far less than they are now.
2. Romance is not synonymous with sex. Although I recognize that within the literary industry when you say romance novel it is a given that it will contain sex and probably lots of it. However, when you add the word Christian or inspirational it becomes more about faith and less about sex. This is actually getting back to the truer sense of the word romance. Just as you can have sex without romance you can have romance without sex. When I looked up the definition of romance this is what I found:
ro·mance—(rōˈmans,ˈrōˌmans/) noun— a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.
By definition romance has to do with love not sex and God in His purest form is LOVE. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that I am able to write an inspirational or edgy Christian romance novel and explore all the facets of love and the emotions associated with it.
In each of my novels I display the love that God has for us and because of His infinite wisdom we are able to give this love to others in many ways–from acts of kindness to intimacy. I hope you’ll read my novels and allow me to spread a little love and God in your lives.
