Eventually, Laverne came out as transgender and is now a star on the Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black, as well as an outspoken advocate and activist for transgender people.

Still is a Book on Christianity, Suicide, Mental Illness and Alcoholism - Eniola Prentice [Guest Author]

Posted in: , ,

Eniola Prentice was born in Lagos Nigeria where she began to pen her stories as early as nine years old, inspired by an eclectic group of writers. Her budding writing career was put in the back burner as she pursued her dream of becoming a medical doctor, completing her undergraduate degree in Chicago, Illinois and her medical degree in Washington, DC.

However in the third year of medical school inspired by the holy spirit or the voices in her head (she would prefer to blame God for this one) and the unique and inspiring stories of friends that became her family in medical school she began to write her debut novel and series, Still. She hopes that her writing compels challenges, inspires people and draws people to the Christian God’s redeeming love. Please read her exclusive interview with RML below...
