Andrena Sawyer, Author of The Long Way Home, will be our guest for the Write the Book Now! Interview and Podcast Show, Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 7 PM EST.
What happens when Mr. Wrong turns out to be Mr. Right? Alonna Jones is no stranger to disappointments and heartbreaks. Struggling to deal with a devastating breakup and the lingering effects of bad decisions, she decides to move back east. As the secrets of her past continue to haunt her, she vows that she will never allow another man to get close to her heart again. On her journey back to the place she’s always called home, Alonna learns that home is not only where the heart is, but also where redemption and healing can take place.
Andrena Sawyer is the Founder of the Minority Christian Women Entrepreneurs Network (MCWEN), and the President of P.E.R.K. Consulting—a consulting firm for nonprofits and small businesses.
Originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone, she and her family moved to the United States when she was nine years old due to a civil war that left thousands dead and untold numbers maimed and displaced. She now credits her family’s move during the war for her interest in human triumph and perseverance.
