Author Niambi Davis Talks about Faith & Writing Today! August 8, 2008

Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), Niambi Davis – author of FROM DUSK TO DAWN – talks about faith and writing!

Something she knows a BIT about considering her novel…

Taliban wanna-be! Bible-thumping Crusader! Is this any way to begin a love affair? In the case of Ayo and Bilal, the answer is a resounding yes! After the dust from religious and familial wars has settled, the 42 year old widow and 32 year old appraiser fall deeply in love, until an unexpected diagnosis convinces Ayo that loving Bilal means letting him go. But has she underestimated the man who, in spite of a tragedy of his own, vows never to let her go?

The question asked this month @ AtBaP is How does your faith, your spirituality integrate itself into your writing and Niambi’s first couple of sentences alone will make you want to read the rest of her response: I was a child when I first heard the word ecumenical. Once a year, the local AME, Episcopal, Catholic, and United Methodist congregations of our small town gathered together to praise the Lord. It was the only Sunday of the year when religion trumped race.

Head over to ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE today to read the rest of Niambi’s response and to share your OWN thoughts on faith and writing!
