Tremayne Moore, author of Take It From Her: Cautionary Lessons For The Ladies We Love
(Maynetre Manuscripts, LLC)
This is a poetry book that speaks to the hearts of women as they face abuse, discrimination, misrepresentation, fear and insecurity. It delves into their psyche and peels away their masks to honorably reveal their plight and ultimate triumph. It’s a raw and real look at their struggles as they search and find hope through faith in God’s healing mercy and redemption.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Take It From Her: Cautionary Lessons For The Ladies We Love?
Tremayne Moore: The inspiration comes from my interactions with people and observing reality shows. The topics for each poem in this book either come from issues that women have expressed to me that they are concerned about or issue I see women going through.
Example: there’s a poem in this book entitled “Don’t Waste My Time.” The title of this particular poem came at the request of my editor. She wanted me to write a poem about “men who promise the world to women, but don’t deliver on that promise.”
JP: What sets Take It From Her: Cautionary Lessons For The Ladies We Love apart from other books in the same genre?
TM: This book is different in that it’s a poetry book, but it also reads as short stories that you can easily see as a play.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Take It From Her: Cautionary Lessons For The Ladies We Love getting out to the public?
TM: The keys to my success that lead to my book getting out the public are social networks, family and friends, author and writer groups and speaking engagements through different establishments (schools, churches, etc.).
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Take It From Her: Cautionary Lessons For The Ladies We Love?
TM: The writing process for me is to let ideas flow in my mind and start typing if a computer is near me or dictate on a voice recorder if a computer isn’t accessible. Once I get to a computer, I start typing. I write as led by the Spirit. This book took about 15 months to write.
JP: What’s next for Tremayne Moore?
TM: My next project is my first novel addressing teenagers with mental disorders. We need to care for them because we are losing teenagers to suicides because we’re not loving and protecting them.
