Ms. Thomas is a dynamic story-teller with three romantic and dramatic novels to her credit. She distinguishes herself from the genre popular among women by refusing to lace her work with profanity and sexually-explicit themes for the sake of notoriety and book sales.
Nevertheless, her first two novels "Color Me Jazzmyne" (2010) and "My Father's Colors" (2011), both reached the Top 100 on Amazon.com's Rhythm and Blues and Soul best-sellers list. "My Father's Colors" was a finalist pick during the 2011 USA Best Book Awards.
Ms. Thomas's books probe the ever-intriguing themes of race, family strife, love, teen pregnancy, friendship and abuse. And yet, her tales which seem to pre-stage current tabloid headlines are spelled out in ways that suit delicate moral tastes.
A friendship that begins to unravel. A young man fleeing the tragic loss of his mother. A romance that crosses the boundary of hatred and proves that love is stronger than the color of skin. Find it all in, AQUA BLUE.
