INTERVIEW | Daphine Glenn Robinson, author of Too Many Lies

Daphine, describe yourself for our visitors.

First of all, I’m a believer. Secondly, I’m often described as down to earth. I enjoy laughing out loud, spending time with my family, reading, and of course writing. I’ve written four books, Brotherly Love & Betrayal, Caring What People Think, Mommy Moments and Too Many Lies.

How do you find time to connect with God?

I have to make time in the mornings to connect with the lover of my soul. I enjoy communing with him early in the morning when no one is awake, or during drive time. I also love to journal and oftentimes, God speaks to me as I write.

Who are your favorite authors? Favorite books?

I love books that grip me from the beginning. I enjoy reading books from James Patterson, Jodi Picoult, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Dorothy Koomson and a whole host of others.

Tell us about your current book?

Too Many Lies is about Deidre Thompson and her husband, Stanley. She’s loved him since high school even though she knows in her heart of hearts that Stanley is the wrong man for her. She’s known this since prom night over fifteen years ago. It was then that he broke up with her because she wouldn’t have sex with him. Despite the pain he caused her young heart back then, she married him some years later.

Throughout their marriage, Stanley has hurt her on more than one occasion, but his latest deception, a family secret Deidre discovers without looking it, sends her over the edge and the fate of their marriage lies solely in her hands.

Too Many Lies is about self-discovery, forgiveness, divorce and learning to love again.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

I actually got the idea from a real-life situation. I can’t spoil the big reveal, but when you read it, you’ll know what I’m referring to. That situation happened to someone in my family. The rest is pure imagination, although we all know a woman who is as naive as Deidre and a man who is a “playa” like Stanley.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

I hope readers walk away understanding that sometimes it is okay to let go. Just because we made a mess of things doesn’t mean God wants us to stay in our mess. Forgiveness is a powerful tool to use for healing–healing for yourself.

What’s next for you?

There is a sequel to Too Many Lies. Stanley’s story needs to be told. He makes a decision in TML that will change the course of his life. However, a few years later, Stanley realizes his decision comes with some challenges that leave him questioning his faith and God.

Readers will also see some different things come from my pen in the next couple of years. I have a YA novel in the works, a paranormal Christian novel, and a mainstream story I’m working on. Busy, busy, busy.

    Great interview. I enjoyed reading it. What I love about the book is that so many of us have been a Deidre at some point in our lives. We all definitely have admired, dated, or even married a Stanley!

    Thanks for reading the interview and for buying my book, NiKay. I really appreciate it.
