Hannah D. Spivey, author of Ebony the Beloved
My book is about a 15-year-old girl named, Ebony Starks. She lives in a dysfunctional household with two parents who worship opposing deities, and she later discovers they never loved her.
Ebony has a hard time finding love until she meets an older woman named, Norma Lue, who takes Ebony under her wings and shows her the love she’s never received from her “parents.” Things begin to get better for Ebony until she cross paths with a world renown entertainer named, Desmond Waltz who has a hidden, dark sadistic side that later rears its ugly head.
