My name is Dr. Patrice J. Carter and I am an Author/Writer/Freelance Editor living in Fayetteville, N.C.
My first literary work, SUPERb Woman: From Bad Girl to God’s Girl, published by Cranberry Quill Publishing (Fayetteville), will be released October 14, 2011.
SUPERb Woman: From Bad Girl to God’s Girl will focus on worthiness and self-esteem; and a deconstructed view of the Proverbs 31 woman for women who are single or married. This book falls under the genre of Christian Self-Help (Nonfiction).
This book is relevant and needed by women within, around and outside of Cumberland County because, women, in particular lack proper mentors and guidance in terms of how to live, work, own businesses, and manage their households. This book is based on the example of the Proverbs 31, which provides sound, biblical guidance and instruction on how women can be successful and balanced in every aspect of their lives.
The point of SUPERb woman is that every woman can become this woman of excellence that the Bible speaks of; and, God has given me the ability to pen this in such a way that every woman, regardless of where she finds herself, spiritually, mentally or emotionally, can pick up this book and begin this journey. The end state of this journey is a right and restored relationship with Christ and a more balanced life.
