Thomas’s novels follow the journey of Naya Monà, a woman who struggles to find herself as she regretfully discovers her father’s past and searches for her daughter. Readers also become familiar with the individual trials of Naya’s husband, Chris; fame-entranced Misty; and Carl, a love-afflicted character introduced in the second book.
Thomas said her books are inspired by real-life situations of abuse that many women and children suffer. “Just recently a SC Johnson billionaire executive was accused of sexually molesting his 15-year step daughter. Child abuse is more than a reality, for victims—it is a nightmare that they never seem to wake up from. Statistics show that 1 out of every 6 girls will face sexual abuse before they reach adulthood.” Thomas, who is also a child abuse prevention advocate stated.
She has also worked with the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, contributing 15% of the proceeds from her first book, Color Me Jazzmyne during her April campaign. Thomas said that she looks forward to working with other Child Advocacy centers in the near future.
Thomas will be at the Hilton Medical Center Hotel on 925 South University Ave between 5 and 7 p.m. to sign copies of My Father's Colors. A book reading will follow.
