FROM THE PUBLISHER
 
LaJoyce Brookshire best-selling author of the novels of Soul Food and Web of Deception takes a pause from fiction to share her true-life story of triumph over a life-threatening situation: Marrying a man who knew he had AIDS but who kept his deadly secret from her until his body betrayed him. In this chronicle of her first marriage. LaJoyce goes from being swept off her feet by "Prince Charming" through a series of dramatic developments with him and his family (who also kept his secret), to contemplating his murder, to ultimately changing his diapers and coordinating his care.

The frightening statistics of HIV/AIDS infections in this country only prove that there are too many secrets in too many relationships-and many of them are harbored by families living in fear, ignorance, and denial. With the statistics raging even higher for African American women, LaJoyce boldly shares her truth after more than ten years of silence. Standing on her incredible faith, then as now, LaJoyce says it's time to stop lying, start telling the truth, and begin to live life with the understanding that only the truth will make you free.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
 
Ask LaJoyce Brookshire who she is and quickly she'll tell you she's, "God's Girl!" As author of the novel Soul Food, she is the first African American to novelize a major motion picture. She was chosen by HarperCollins Publishing to write the novelization from the movie's script on the strength of her first novel, a suspense drama titled Web of Deception. Due to LaJoyce putting to use her marketing and publicity expertise, Soul Food has out sold every movie tie-in book ever written.

With FAITH UNDER FIRE: Betrayed by a Thing Called Love, LaJoyce takes a pause from fiction and breaks a ten-year silence as she shares the true-life account of her ex-husband marrying her knowing he had AIDS. She has also been a contributing essayist in the books SOULS OF MY SISTERS: Black Women Break Their Silence, Tell Their Stories, and Heal Their Spirits and GHETTOver GIRLS.

In her many lectures and interviews, LaJoyce covers how to take a book from concept-to computer-to-contract, as well as her experience as an entertainment publicist who has worked with the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Whitney Houston and Kenny G., to name a few; and how to break into the genres of publishing and entertainment.

LaJoyce is an ordained minister, a Doctor of Naturopathy, Minister of Health and Master Herbalist; a Certified Group Fitness Instructor; an avid lover of African Dance, and an advocate for literacy and abstinence.

She resides in the Poconos with her husband, childhood sweetheart Gus, daughter Brooke and dogs Rambo, Phoenix and Lexi.
