Selena Haskins is a nostalgic writer who enjoys creating stories about family, love, and relationships. As a native Washingtonian, Selena also talks about issues that affect urban-life. By the same token, she inculcates messages of hope, love, and forgiveness. Selena's debut novel, A River Moves Forward, continues to rank as a best-seller. She was also selected in the top 100 best authors on AuthorsDatabase. Chicago's Vibrations Radio voted her as Author of the Month, and Goodreads fans voted her as Best New African American Author of the Year in 2013. When Selena is not writing, she loves watching NBA Basketball, movies, listening to music, and spending quality time with her family. Selena's upcoming project will be a comedy short-story, and a novella about her love for basketball.

With her marriage on the brink of divorce, a brother who could go to jail, and a son on life-support, Tracey must decide if the fame and fortune she craves is worth more than the love of family.
