ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tonya Barbee

TONYA BARBEE is a novelist and aspiring playwright. Her most recent published work is titled, The Little Girl Inside Owning My Role in My Own Pain. She is currently working on another project that complements this book. Tonya grew up in Durham, NC, a family of four daughters and one son. Her father, Woodrow served his country for twenty years as an Army officer, retired then taught ROTC for another twenty years and her mother, Doris, a college administrator. She is a proud 1980 graduate of Frank W. Ballou High School in Washington, DC. She worked in operations and management for Department of Agriculture for twenty years. For the past ten years, she’s worked as a project manager for Department of Defense in Washington, DC. She studied at National-Louis University where she earned her Masters in Business Administration in 2009.

Although she’s worked her way up the ladder in the federal government, she had no idea she would end up writing professionally however she has always enjoyed sharing her personal life through story telling with those she thought she could help. Then something clicked. As she writes, she is in hopes that her work reaches her readers that have been through something and have contemplated giving up. Her goal is to enable her readers to become empowered to keep moving forward to accomplish their dreams no matter what challenges they have been faced with.

Tonya resides in Bowie, MD with two of her youngest children, Christian and Zachary. Her eldest two, Andrew and Jessica left the nest years ago and have blessed her with seven beautiful grandkids.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Little Girl Inside is a prolific story of triumph and discovery of inner peace. With each page, the reader will be captivated while the author uses the writing pen as a sowing tool-seaming a garment of praise, banner of victory and fabric of joy. With imaginative color, the book is a perfectly designed combination of patterns expressing the maturation of a woman.

A uniquely designed transparent jewel every woman should own in her jewelry box. The Little Girl Inside is a ministry resource tool for women in search for transparency in the human heart. The author shows us how to overcome the inner battle of doing the right thing the wrong way, going from finding love in the wrong places to allowing love to be revealed in the right time and in the right place.

READ AN EXCERPT

I made room for Sir Intellectual to bring what I thought were the remainder of hi things. I also made room on my health insurance policy just in case he didn’t have any. Too bad it didn’t occur to me to ask him. My ability to confront was non-existent. I decided not to wait until I returned to work to handle it. I contacted my carrier and updated my policy to include my new husband. The whole time I felt sad that he wasn’t contacting his carrier to include me. I had a husband, though what caliber of husband, I wasn’t sure. Sometimes I wanted to slap myself for being so needy that I overlooked important things and ignored flags, bells, and whistles.

VBD Author Spotlight: Genevieve D. Woods

Victorious By Design is pleased to feature author Genevieve D. Woods. Genevieve is the author of the bestselling Greatest Love series. She writes flawed characters that do not always start out on the right path.

“I write inspirational drama that causes spiritual reflection. I write from what I like to believe is a spiritual practice/viewpoint and how it relates to the trials and triumphs of everyday life,” Genevieve said.

Genevieve is an avid reader of all genres. She has a great love of music, which, if you pay close attention, you’ll see come through in her writing. Check out her  books.

THE GREATER LOVE SERIES

These are Christian love stories that reflect the greatest love of all times—the love that is Christ’s love for his bride, the church.

Each character in the Greatest Love series is thrust into a whirlwind of drama filled with abuse, betrayal, secrets, and scandals. Experience dark times, inspirational times, and romantic times with these characters.

As secrets are revealed, life-altering decisions are made. The characters will face the reality that their duty is to fear God and keep his commandments, or deal with the consequences of their actions.

The characters fall down, they curse, they have physical and verbal altercations, they do not deny their flesh. But through the love of Jesus Christ, they find redemption and happiness (in most cases).

Genevieve doesn’t always agree with her character’s actions, but she allows them to follow their paths.

Get ready to face emotional times as you read the Greater Love series.

The following books are in the Greater Love series:

Book 1 – All I’ll Ever Ask
Book 2 – After Church: Walking Worthy….After the Benediction!
Book 3 – Dawn and Autumn: Finding Him
Book 4 – Just Be Held
Book 5 – The Conclusion
