Anjunette L. Washington Patrice and Friends had the chance to chat it up with DC author Anjunette L. Washington. Washington told us that she loves to garden; fresh vegetables and flowers.  She is a lover of coffee like I am. She is also an accountant by profession, part-time writer, and has a passion for music. Take a journey into the world of Anjunette L. Washington. What are your favorite books?                 I read from many genres but as of late. I have embraced new authors starting out. They typically write their memoirs, poetry and spoken word. However, I am drawn to suspense, mystery and crime novels because if at all. I enjoy reading characters escaping getting out of bad situations.  How do you balance making demands on the reader with taking care of the reader?                  My book (s) will be on all platforms because I have to accommodate many readers and their chosen way to escape through reading. I find that readers are not wired the same. There are readers that pref

Book Review Alert: Trahison Why Weren't We the Chosen Ones Author:  Anjunette L. Washington Published:  April 27, 2021 Publisher:  Page Publishing ISBN-13:  978-1682137628 ISBN-10: 1682137627 ASIN:  n/a Rating:  4 This book is for the generations. It's all about the Davidson Family. Money is the foundation of the family. Mostly the men in the family. It was something that was instilled in them. Growing up with love letters and encounters with love grew in this story. Then there are the ladies. I will say that my favorite character is Chase. She placed her foot down and said I don’t love with sex. That was a You Go Girl moment. I love traveling through time with this novel. It shows life. Life in all aspects. How we grow and change as people.  From single to married. From finding yourself to finding love. Take your time and read this novel. You will find little nuggets of wisdom or even some characters that remind you of those in your life. Ms. Washington, you took your time wit

Book Review Alert: You Taught Me

Book Review Alert: You Taught Me Author: Delanda Mcnair Published: June 20, 2019 Publisher: Truly HIS Pen LLC ISBN-13: 978-1-7329907-0-8 Rating: 3 Summary: You Taught Me is a book about a group of friends who have to remember how to tap into their faith when the world is testing them. Each character in the book is going through their own obstacles, and it’s only through faith, prayer, and daily talks with God that they are able to make it through them. Several characters have their faith tested, but they ultimately lean into it more along with some constant reminders from their friends and family members. There are some sentences that repeat themselves. The author would write a sentence and then right after it she paraphrased exactly what she said again. I suggest looking back over it and choosing one of the two sentences in the places you do this, both sentences are not needed. Also, please remember to add quotes when there is dialogue being spoken. I also found that lack of paragraph
