LaCricia A’ngelle, tell us about your book?
I am National Bestselling Author, LaCricia A’ngelle. I am the author of five novels, including my newest release Sophomore Mom. Sophomore Mom is a novel loosely based on my experience as a teen mom. At the age of 16 I noticed there was a huge buzz concerning teenage pregnancy. It was all over the television, in magazines, newspapers etc.
The thing I noticed most was that there were a lot of adults talking about teen pregnancy, most of which had not experienced it. Being a teen mom myself, I decided I would be a voice for teen mothers. I started to write a non-fiction book entitled Teenaged and Pregnant, a teenager’s story. Out of fear, I tossed the book aside.
How did you come up with idea for this book?
I later began my career as a novelist. With all of the books I wrote, the teen pregnancy book never left my heart. After much prayer, I decided it was time for me to become transparent, and to finally tell the story. My work as a novelist allowed me to adapt the story into one that could be read, and understood by people on all levels of life.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
My hope for Sophomore Mom is that it will impact the lives of many. I desire to discourage teen girls from becoming pregnant. Encourage those that currently are pregnant to know that they still have a future, and to let those that may have been a teen mom know that although it was tough, they made it. Many women are walking around burdened because of their role as a teen mom. I hope Sophomore Mom will be a tool to help them to forgive themselves, and to move forward. Finally, I would like to bring awareness to sexual abuse in children.
