“I discovered that teenagers were enjoying adult urban fiction and felt that some of the content in those books was not suited for them,” says Goss. “The books in this new series tackle serious issues facing today’s youth in a manner that is age appropriate and easily relatable to. It is my hope that the reader puts down this book and is better prepared to discuss these issues with someone who can help them deal with it. Unfortunately, life for these young women in the series is anything but sweet.”
The first book in the series is “Sade's Secret” which is written in first person allowing the reader to fully experience the emotional roller coaster as Sade describes current events and painful flashbacks. "Sade’s Secret is a very timely story that should be read by mothers and daughters, men and educators and discussed widely. Kudos to Sparkle for a story that could have been dark and heavy but was relatable and interesting at the same time," says preview reader Angelia Menchan.
Goss has experienced writing success in multiple genres including Christian fiction, teen fiction, suspense and adult fiction. Among her many numerous literary awards are Essence Magazine Bestsellers List, 2012 Emma Awards Finalist for Inspirational Romance – “Delilah”, 2011 Top 20 Christian Fiction Novels of the Year – “Delilah”, 2010 Dallas Morning News Best Seller – “Paper Thin: The Lip Gloss Chronicles Vol. 3” and 2009 Amazon Best seller – “His Invisible Wife”, “The Ultimate Test” & “Splitsville”
