Edward and James Shaw are twins who are successful executives at Rock Star Records.  The company that was started and operated by their father, Irvin, who is a well-known hip hop artist.  Edward has a great love for music and is focused on ensuring the success of the business, just like his dad.  James on the other hand has a great love for women and power.   Unfortunately, they were blindsided by the challenges of life which were of biblical proportions.  Edward found himself in the struggle of his life to save his marriage and his career after there had been some horrible choices made, while James found himself fighting for his freedom.  

The only way for them to find their way through the drama, infidelity, damaged trust, addiction, meaningless sex, and betrayal was to build a solid relationship with God.  When Edward and James hit rock bottom mentally and emotionally, they found out who they were and what the Lord called them to do.  They both began to walk into their purpose realizing that although the storms came one after another, after another and almost took them out; they survived through the grace of God…   

Take this journey with Edward and James and the rest of the Shaw family as they endure the many trials and tribulations of this life.


When did you become interested in storytelling?

I have always been interested in storytelling as long as I can remember. However, my storytelling was originally in the form of poetry and songs. As I got older, I knew that I wanted to write book but didn’t know what I wanted to write about until early 2017.

What was your first book/story published?

When I was going through the darkest time of my life, I developed a process called Finding Life’s Love Song. The process of dealing with all the baggage I was carrying sparked the idea of writing a book, Love Song, that somewhat illustrated the benefits of releasing the baggage from past hurt.

What inspired you to write Biblical Proportions?

Biblical Proportions describes situations in our lives that have a substantial impact. It does not matter if it is a good situation or a bad situation, either way there will be consequences and how you deal with said consequences is very important. This idea of writing the book Biblical Proportions was dropped in my spirit as I was reading the Bible and recognized that the situations we are dealing with today are already written. At that moment I recognized that stories needed to be told to: one to bring awareness to how relatable the Bible is; two show the readers how important developing a relationship with the Lord is; and three share an overall message.

What character in Biblical Proportions is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

Jackie is the most like me. She was dealing with unnecessary drama because she lacked confidence and did not know her worth. In the end, she knew what she wanted, and she was no longer willing to settle for anything less.

What is your favorite part in Biblical Proportions?

The favorite part of Biblical Proportions is the ending because you get to see both main characters, Edward and James Shaw, growth as men.

What was the hardest part to write?

The hardest part to write in any of my books is when something bad happens to the character. It is surprisingly painful. I have gone back to read both my books and have cried because of certain situations (and I know it is going to happen).

What would your ideal career be, if you couldn't be an author?

In addition to having the great pleasure of being an author, I am also a songwriter, music producer, and speaker. I also have tons of other idea swimming in my brain but haven’t fully immersed myself into them. But we shall see what happens.

Do you read reviews of your books? If so, do you pay any attention to them, or let them influence your writing?

I read my book reviews on occasion. If there are constructive things that people have to say, I will consider them. However, I understand that everyone is not going to like my work. So, I pray about it and use discernment.

What well-known writers do you admire most?

I typically gravitate towards writers who are not in the genre of fiction. I have been drawn to writers like Bishop T.D. Jakes and Van Moody to name a few. There writing invokes a yearning to learn more and stretch myself beyond my comfort zone.

Do you have any other books/stories in the works?

The next book that I am writing is my life’s story. The title is There was Power in the Pain, From the Pit to the Palace. I have more ideas but not moved to start on anything else at the moment. One book at a time.

Thank you for having on your blog today. Peace and blessings!
