Vanessa Miller is a best-selling author, playwright, and motivational speaker. Her stage productions include Get You Some Business, Don't Turn Your Back on God, and Can't You Hear Them Crying. Vanessa is currently in the process of writing stage productions from her novels in the Rain series. Vanessa has been writing since she was a young child. When she wasn't writing poetry, short stories, stage plays, and novels, reading great books consumed her free time. However, it wasn't until she committed her life to the Lord in 1994 that she realized all gifts and anointing come from God. She then set out to write redemption stories that glorified God. Feels like Heaven is book one in Vanessa's third series with Whitaker House. Her previous series are Morrison Family Secrets, comprising Heirs of Rebellion and The Preacher, the Politician, and the Playboy, and Second Chance at Love, of which the first book, Yesterday's Promise, was number one on the Black Christian Book Club national best-sellers list in April 2010. It was followed by A Love for Tomorrow and A Promise of Forever Love. In addition, Vanessa has published two other series, Forsaken and Rain, as well as a stand-alone title, Long Time Coming. Her books have received positive reviews, won Best Christian Fiction Awards, and topped best-sellers lists, including Essence. Vanessa is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Best Christian Fiction Mahogany Award 2003 and the Red Rose Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction 2004, and she was nominated for the NAACP Image Award (Christian Fiction) 2004.

debhgrtyPlymouth MAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Feels Like Heaven - a tale of love and redemption and greed.September 10, 2014debhgrtyPlymouth MAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleSolomon Harris, a prominent Los Angeles attorney, has just won an important case. On the way back to his office, he learns that the man he defended was guilty, not innocent even though Soloman believed in his innocence. He is feeling depressed at his gullibility he had prayed at the beginning of his career that God would give him the wisdom to determine innocence or guilt so he would never defend a guilty man. While at this low point in his life, his mother tells him that the father he has never known wants to see him that he is dying.
Soloman jets off to North Carolina to placate his mother not because of his father. He meets his dad, David Davison, a prominent pastor; Alma, his fathers wife; and his half-siblings: Adam, Tamara, and Leah along with Dr. Larissa Wilkinson, their cousin, whom the Davisons had adopted and raised as their own. Thus begins a tale of infidelity and betrayal and greed but most of all, a tale of love and forgiveness and redemption. Youll enjoy reading this story, although I was a bit surprised at how quickly the love element developed. The characters, however, are very believable and very like people we all know in our own lives.
During the International Christian Retail Show this past June, I had the opportunity to interview Vanessa Miller, a quite delightful woman. She had recently moved to North Carolina from Ohio, and proudly told me she had a 28-year-old daughter and two grandkids, a girl 6-years-old and a boy who is 5.
Feels Like Heaven is the first book in her new series, My Soul to Keep. She related that is a modern day telling of the story of King David and how secrets can negatively impact more than one life in a family. She says the book is about redemption and forgiveness and facing the secrets of your past. The next book in the series will be Heaven on Earth.
Vanessa says she has always wanted to write and has written screenplays as well as novels. She has written four previous series: Morrison Family Secrets, Second Chance at Love, Forsaken, and Rain. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Best Christian Fiction Mahogany Award in 2003 and the Red Rose Award for Excellence in Christian fiction in 2004. She graduated from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, with a degree in organizational communication.
A devout Christian, Vanessa believes that God has called her to write redemption stories that glorify God and help readers rediscover their places with the Lord.

Problem is,Solomon wanted his father in his life when he was a kid, but it never happened. Why should he run to do his father's biding now?
The next problem was his attraction to a beautiful lady who he found out is a cousin.
Problem number three is the fact that he is included in his father's will. That doesn't produce any good vibrations coming from his half siblings.
Oh, yes. Dad wants Solomon to represent him in a court of law. What's that all about?
Hey, none of this is doing anything to erase the bitterness Solomon has towards his absentee father and his family. It just adds to the confusion.
This is one messed up family, and one good book. Thank you, Ms Miller.
