Praise for “SistaGirlz Book 1 Livin’ Just Enough: Rachael’s Story (What He Did For Her Love Edition)”!!

“Baby girl, Alonzo, and Aaron are all great strong characters with an intricate story.  Baby Girl comes into her own identity outside of Aaron after he goes to jail.  Her progress from a dependent in love young girl to a woman on her own shows her strength.  With all of Aaron’s troubles in life with his mom and family and growing up way too soon you see that his need to love and be loved is the basis for all he does. Even when being selfish and sending Baby Girl away he’s still trying to do the right thing.  Even in his death he’s keeping his promise to take care of Rachel.  Alonzo is a man with a past even he doesn’t fully know about.  His need for love and success drives him.  Even the side characters Meeka and Chico play bigger roles than you would think in the beginning. Definitely looking forward to book 2.”

After a brief hiatus, I returned to my first two books* and decided to continue writing by making a series out of the characters’ personal stories. There are nine women in my SistaGirlz series: Rachael Wallace, Layla Michaels, Raven Powers, Imani Powers, TaMeeka James, Angela DeVille, Nina DeVille, JaShel Jackson and Clarissa Revelin.

Free to move on with her life, Rachael falls for Alonzo Banks but then Aaron comes back. What’s a SistaGirl to do?

My Favorite Personal Quotes (as of May 26, 2018)

From time to time I’ll either come across or come up with my own quips and quotes. Here are a few:

If you see “ej”, “lmg” or “lm…”, the preceding quote is mine.

 

When I was a kid, I always wondered why my mom got to do whatever she wanted to do. Now that I’m a mom, I don’t wonder about it,I ENJOY IT!!!
-ej 010511

 

Gone crazy… Will be right back.
-lmg 2000

 

My friends can be broke… my man CAN’T!
-lmg 010429
(afterthought: I was SO single when I wrote this and was in the Dating World. I probably came across a broke brutha that tried to go too far taking advantage of my kindness and hospitality. SMH)

 

You bring joy to my heart and make my life richer. I’ll always cherish the gift of YOU.
-unknown

 

What if there was someone out there named “Someone” or “Somebody”. Do you realize that he or she gets blamed for practically everything that goes on in the world???
-ej 010523

Revised version of that last quote:
What if there was someone out there named “Not Me” or “I Don’t Know”. Do you realize that he or she gets blamed for practically everything that goes on in the world???
-Lea Mishell 090823

 

(a thought that ran through my head just before I began cleaning my apartment…)
Damn spontaneous tornadoes. Why do they always have to hit MY bedroom???
-ej 010619

 

2001 Mother’s Day dedication to my mother that I wrote inside the card I gave her:
Mama, I’ve loved you since before I could focus my little newborn eyes on your beautiful face. You’ve been there through diapers and divorce. You’re not only my mother, you’re my friend.
-ej 010423

 

If learn to fix my own car, what will I need a man for?
-ej 010530

Rebuttal to previous quote: Trust me, I KNOW what I need a man for… I was having a bad “I don’t have a boyfriend” day…
-ej 050527

 

Please don’t allow me or anyone to take away that which gives you joy.
-ej 010619

 

Why are habits so easy to make and so hard to break?
-ej 010503

 

What My Heart Color Means to You!
Color my heart red when you are near because to me you are so very dear…
When you are far away my heart turns blue because I sure do miss you…
Color my heart a bright yellow on a cloudy day because you chase my cares away…
Color it purple because your trust and loyalty has made me feel like royalty…
Color it green like the promise of spring for all the love our friendship brings…
-unknown 2001

 

Mishell’s Rant for May 8, 2001: Believe it or not, I’m single… Now you may be wondering why this is the case. Well, first of all, I’m not married…I don’t have what most call a real relationship…Therefore I am single…
The question is: How does Mishell feel about
BEING single…
DAMMIT! I don’t like it!
Yes, I can be a bit of a flirt, but I don’t want to spend the rest of my life flirting. I want to be with one and only one man. He knows who he is and he if keeps bullshitting, I may not leave him the option of making a choice in the matter. Summer is coming and I’m already getting nibbled at. It’s not like I HAVE to be alone. I can give him a chance to think of what he’s about to lose…
OR…
I could just take the choice away from him totally and go out on my own and be the Independent Woman that I know I am.
And I would if I didn’t love him so much…

 

I’d rather have high self-esteem and be a diva than have low self-esteem and be a doormat!
~Lea Mishell 070705

 

Life’s short. Eat dessert first. Work less, vacation MORE!
~Lea Mishell

 

Never do anything you’ll regret. Never regret anything you do.
~Lea Mishell

 

My life is an open book… series.
~Lm…

 

What I found most interesting were the June 19th quotes, the day I married Hubby (they’re the BOLDED quotes in case you can’t read the “date code” behind the quotes)

I Do Not Celebrate The Commercialization of Christmas

Not much has changed. I still only give love, nothing materialistic.

Official Blog of Author Lea Mishell

As a child, I enjoyed waking up on Christmas morning to race to the tree to see what “Santa Claus” brought me. As I got older, the amount of gifts dwindled as did my spirit for the holiday. I wasn’t taught the true meaning of Christmas and therefore believed that it was all about the gifts. By my teen years, once I began working and was able to participate in the gift giving, I tried to regain my happiness for the season by giving to others but I was met by unhappiness at the fact that I didn’t “go all out” for their present. It wasn’t until I had children of my own that I had a chance to reinvent how I celebrated the holiday. Seeing the smiles on my Babies faces was all the gift that I needed as my children were satisfied with any and everything I ever…
