Dominique Wilkins

Biography

Dominique Wilkins is a licensed cosmetologist and married mother of five children who writes short stories in the Urban Christian Fiction genre which everyone can relate. In a time where crime is high, morale is low, and drama is everywhere, Dominique writes to encourage her readers and provide them with resources to keep them going and do better. Read real stories about bad parents; jealous neighbors; backstabbing friends; cheating; love; pain; and the ability to inspire change or provide a life lesson. Transferring a decade of emotional support and encouragement from the beauty shop to the pages, these stories are written with biblical messages intermingled for the reader to refer back to or research for more healing on their particular need directly from The Bible.

Dominique believes that we often cannot solve our own problems, but maybe, when they're put into a story in someone else's shoes, they can then be seen and solved more easily. She's written over 15 short stories for you to enjoy. She has received great 5 star reviews for many of her titles, such as Theresa in Wonderland, 7:10, The Bad Parent and even Forgiven. Not Forgotten.

There on the "Blessings and Testimonies" tab, you will find real people who share real stories of overcoming obstacles or cheating death. Situations that only God can see you through, to encourage anyone to continue to stay prayerful and patient as they attack their own storm!

Dominique is an advocate for the abused, the children and anyone treated unfairly. She prays that through faith and love, she can help other people turn back to God, not only in their time of need, but forever more through her books, social media and also verbally.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Personally as I've been growing closer to God and have been actually looking and listening to people, I realize that even people who believe in God and who know him, often they are faced with their own complicated situations, where they ask why or their faith may waiver. In this case, they need to be reminded of God's love and the blessings they've experienced, even while they feel as though they are being cursed or tested. They simply need to be reminded that they need a little more Jesus. Which is the title of my latest book! :)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I tried to send query letters to traditional publishing houses and realized that at the time, there were so many obstacles to get around to get these much needed books out, that it was in my best interest to do it myself. They say, that if you want something done right, you must do it yourself, so I did!
