Tralisa McNeal


I am a new and aspiring author from Indianapolis, Indiana. I am a graduate of Indiana University. I write stories from my heart. I originally started writing as a way to manage life's daily challenges. I share experiences with the protagonist in my story Love Me Sane so often times these events were written from a first hand perspective. The reason this is a fiction book instead of non fiction is because not all of our experiences are exactly the same.

    This is a short, realistic and well written love story. This book is well worth the read. The author does a fantastic job with creating a realistic setting and believable characters. It's nice to see good Christian literature with wholesome values.
  • Send a White Rose on Jan. 14, 2012

    Send a White Rose is a cleverly written love story of reconciliation and redemption. The author utilizes everyday relationships as examples of the various types of love Christ has for his children. The first example of love and redemption is displayed in the relationship between Aleathia and the judge. Aleathia is rejected by her parents but is reconciled when the judge pays for her. Her parents didn’t want her but her life is giving meaning by serving the community. She runs the orphanage and helps the judge. The judge needs her. She even saves his life after he is brutally attacked and left for dead. A second example of love, reconciliation and redemption is shown between the judge and his friends. The judge wants to give up and die after his attack but his friends refuse to let him and furthermore encourage him to live. Robert sings for him while he is in the hospital and Windwalker helps him to accept his life as it is at the moment. In return the judge reconciles Windwalker back to Christ and he too is able to accept his fate prior to his death. Finally the story ends with Leah and the judge preparing for marriage. The judge is reconciled to his original state of being. The story begins with the judge picking Leah up from the train station in hopes of marrying her. The story ends with him proposing marriage.
