    Welcome everyone to In the Chair- the character interview edition. Anabelle Lee here from the highly controversial novel Ribbons & Belle. My author Ey Wade has given me the honor of interviewing Deborah, one of the cast members from One Sunday at a Time.

    Sit back and let's see whats going on.
    Tell me about your book. 
    In this soap opera in print, the main character, Deborah, asks herself, “What does crazy look like?” Let Deborah tell it, it's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live.
     But working full-time, being a full-time mother, full-time wife and a full-time Sunday only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her. With all the scheming and shenanigans Deborah orchestrated to get this lifestyle, she might have to come up with a whole set of new ones to maintain it.
    Lynox is Deborah's husband who she thanks God for putting back into her life after a game of cat and mouse that defies the laws of romance. He feels that all Deborah needs is to let her hair down, maybe make some new friends and live a little. When Deborah agrees and then suspects Lynox of having an affair with the woman that he suggested she form a friendship with, will he live to regret his own advice? 


    What do you like about your situation in your book? I like the fact that I’m transparent. I show the emotions that some women who are overwhelmed in life hide under a mask each and every day. I don’t necessarily take off the mask, but readers are privy to what’s under it. I ask that question that so many women ask themselves: “Am I crazy?” I portray the struggle and sometimes shame of seeking help. I answer the questions of whether a Christian needs more than God and prayer when their mind isn’t right. It’s hard being real and raw, but I know I’m going to save someone’s life in the process.


    What do you dislike about your situation in your book? I dislike the fact that I didn’t take off that fricken mask I’ve been hiding behind. I knew I was in mental pain, yet I did not continue seeking help from the resources that had been made available to me. I dislike that I gave up on God and His resources and looked to man.

    I can understand that, I had a few issues in my story that made me question things. If you had a chance to rewrite your ‘story’, what would you change? 
    I would change the fact that those around me didn’t yoke me up by the collar and tell me like it is. I believe that we can keep it real with one another and be diplomatic at the same time. Keeping it real doesn’t necessarily mean hurting someone’s feelings. It’s all in the delivery. We have to be one another’s keeper. Notice how some of the tragedy that has struck America, right down to acts of terrorism, could maybe have been avoided if someone had spoken up about some of the things they saw in a person…some of their behaviors and characteristics.

    What would you keep? I would keep the fact that my husband had a true, praying friend. This friend didn’t have the label of a Christian, but he was full of wisdom and belief. There are two types of friends. There is that one friend that if you say you are going to go drive off of a bridge, she’s getting in the passenger side and riding with you. Then there is that friend who says, “Hold up. That might not be such a good idea.” Both types play a role in our lives, but that friend with wisdom is priceless.

    Do you have a family? If so, tell me about your family life? I have a family. I have a loving and drop dead handsome husband. I have a son from a previous relationship and a son with my husband. As much as I love them all, I still did things to hurt them. I hurt them because I was too proud to get the help I needed to get my life under control. Because of that, I risk losing my family.

    What do you wish people will learn/ enjoy about your story? Even though romance is the number one selling genre, just the opposite is reflected in my story. My story is about pain. Pain is one thing that connects us all; everyone has experienced it at one point or another in life. My prayer is that from my story others will learn how to cope with pain, get delivered from pain, and most importantly, walk in that deliverance
    .
    What do you really think about your author? She was interviewed here, earlier and had great things to say about you. My author is me, and I’m so proud of her for being transparent to the world. I don’t feel she’s hiding behind my character to tell her own story. Instead, the same way God used her, she used me. It’s an honor and feels good to be a willing vessel.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story and your experience.
