In a short while I will be publishing my book here on Wikinut. I will start by publishing the reviews. I own copyright on all the reviews.


I will start with my review of my own book and I will continue with a review from a great friend of mine.

Angels Watching Over Me, was inspired by the life of a friend of mine. My friend was a single mom struggling to raise a family on a fixed income. I first met her through another friend when I was just a teenager. Though this single mom was older than me, we eventually became friends. I admired her love of family and her devotion to her children.

Angels Watching Over Me is a semi biographical novel.

Now for the details of Angels Watching Over

Inspired by the life story of a real person, I decided to write a novel loosely based on this woman's life.

Carissa Forbes, the heroine in the book is a young black women who comes to the big city, to make a new life for herself. Carissa lived a sheltered life in Nova Scotia but that life was not without its problems. Carissa lost both parents by the age of 8 and was raised by her unmarried sister who was only 14 at the time she took responsibility for Carissa's care.

The books has several themes, a strong sense of family, the idea that we make our decisions in life based on our personal experiences, and that we make good and bad decisions because of our life's experience. Sometimes you will agree with Carissa's decisions and some times you will just want to shake some sense into her, but you will always love her.

The title of the book is Angels Watching Over Me and that is because Carissa has always had the ability to talk to angels, this ability has also influenced the way she sees life and the decisions she made because of it.


This book is about life and if you are looking for a happy Hollywood movie type of book you will not find it here. This book deals with real life issues, poverty, alcoholism, death of a parent, death of a child, parenting, family and friendship alliances, family problems, family love and family interference. It is a book about real life and it's good and bad moments and it is a book about how we deal with the success and the challenges that life throws at us.

Carissa is a strong vibrant woman who has forged her own life with or without the approval of friends and family. Carrissa is in fact the personification of love and family and Angels Watching Over Me is a must read book because of it.
