The desk of Savannah J

Welcome to my blog. For those of you who don't know me, here's a little about who I am. I was born and raised in a small city outside of Philadelphia Pa called Wilmington Delaware. I grew up in the area of Wilmington known as "Little Italy". It was a wonderful place to grow up because I was exposed to many different cultures.
Not only did I experience the rich Italian culture of my neighbors, but the community directly behind mine housed a Greek Orthodox church and neighboring that, was a Hispanic community as well. So, you see I grew to be a pretty well rounded person thanks to my multicultural environment.
I first decided to write when my life took an unexpected turn. To escape the stress in my life at that time, I began to create short stories which later evolved into my first book, "Toward the Light." The sequel, "The Prodigal Son," was written by request.
For those of you who've read my work, you know, I enjoy dropping nuggets of wisdom gleaned mostly from my mother who was one of the wisest women I know. I enjoy entertaining controversial topics as well, which can lead to an interesting discussion during a book club meeting.
If you haven't had the opportunity to read one of my books yet, why not start with my latest release, "Behind Closed Doors." It's sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. But be prepared, as I said earlier, I enjoy controversial topics.
