Conversations with Cheryl presents Author Paulette Harper

Who are your favorite authors? Where do you find your inspiration?
Over the years, I have grown to appreciate the writing of some who write Christian fiction. A few of them are: Wanda B. Campbell and Tia Mc Collors. I also enjoy the inspirational writing of: T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, and Joyce Meyers.

Tell us about your book?

What is Completely Whole about? Oftentimes, many people try to seek fulfillment from money, relationships, accomplishments, or material things. Others choose to cope with difficult problems by using drugs or alcohol, but they often come up short and soon have to realize that such things do not bring true happiness and fulfillment in life. How then can we successfully solve the problems that we face and find true happiness and peace in our lives? Well, author, Paulette Harper, in her latest book, Completely Whole, shows readers how to overcome suffering caused by alcoholism, substance abuse, poverty, and other obstacles blocking the path to a life of wholeness in spirit, soul, and body. 
In her well-written, resource-filled guide, Harper provides readers with practical and biblically-based solutions to overcome everyday problems. Completely Whole features prayers, meditations, and powerful scripture passages to allow readers to interact with the text and to apply it to their own lives. Harper uses personal experiences and biblical principles to place readers on a path to be in connection with God. This life-changing book will help readers to transform their spirit, soul, and body through Jesus Christ, so they can live a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment. 

What other books have you authored? Tell us about them.
That Was Then, This Is Now, was written in 2007 and published by Tate Publishing in May of 2008. I call That Was Then my testimonial story. I share, after being married 23 years and divorced, how God took the transitions in my life, and used my pain as an instrument of hope for others. That Was Then, This Is Now has achieved national recognition by being awarded a finalist in the 2009 Next Generation Indie Book Award. I am also the Co-Author of Victorious Living for Women and Victorious Living for Moms.

Are you working on new material? If so, tell us about what you are currently working on and when we can expect to see it on the market.
Yes I am working on my first Christian Fiction Book. I’m hoping it will be ready by the end of 2011.

What last words of encouragement would you like to leave with our readers

I would highly recommend to those who are aspiring to become authors to be patient with the process of becoming well known. Connecting with your audience and branding yourself will take time. Especially for new writers, the market is flooded with books for readers to choose from, so by keeping this in mind you must be able to patiently wait your time to shine.
