Not your ordinary Ghost Writer

Living Anonymous by Shataya Simms

5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book!!!! I started it on Sunday morning and stayed up until 1:30 am to finish it. I could not go to sleep without finishing this book. It keep me interested, nervous and excited throughout the entire book!

I liked that Shataya didn't spend a lot of time on the Aneesah's childhood neglect. She gave us exactly what we needed to understand the situation and moved on from it. I liked how every time I got comfortable with where the story was headed, Shataya would completely shake it up. There are a lot of things that I wasn't expecting in this the return of Rita, Capree's secret, Vic's secret, Nyce's secret, and a whole lot of other excitement in between.

This is a coming of age story about overcoming obstacles, surviving heartache, and learning to love again. You fall in love with all the characters, good or bad, you develop a real connection to them. Sometimes you want to fight, cry, scream or drown in their depression with them. It's a love story on a roller coaster ride until the very end!

Oh, did I mention it ends in a cliff hanger? The best cliff hanger ever, but yet and still a cliff hanger! And that was the only thing I was mad about...that I couldn't continue this story. Shataya Simms did not write this book like a new author...

  3. From the bestselling author of Wisdom Hunter, Randall Arthur, comes one of the first contemporary novels portraying a female pastor in the Baptist community, highlighting the tension and controversy surrounding her leadership role. A Quiet Roar-Sometimes Disruption Is Overdue takes place in the small Georgia towns of Lyons and Vidalia, with plenty of colorful characters and drama. It’s a riveting story that will challenge, entertain and inspire. It’s garnering 5 stars on Amazon and is destined to become a classic.

    Warning, though; there’s no fairy tale or “Hallmark” Christianity here; only a true-to-life drama that will captivate your heart and mind. And resonate with your soul.

    Dr. Bill Rudd, Pastor and adjunct professor
    “A female pastor is imposed on a conservative Baptist church in rural Georgia and all hell breaks loose.’”

    Southern Baptist Pastor Wade Burleson, Top-100 Christian blogger
    “Randall Arthur has hit a home run. Men, especially evangelical pastors, you ought to read this book. You won’t put it down.”

    Larry Griggers, City Councilman in Lyons
    “It is a compelling story, and I read it from cover to cover in one sitting (a first for me). It will make you think, laugh, cry and all the things a good book should do, and it is thoroughly entertaining to boot.”

    Dr. Butch Entrekin, Community Bible Church
    “I have read few stories that have pulled me in like A Quiet Roar. It confronts the very cultural foundations of the North American church. This is a must read.”

    Anna Strawn, Junior, Auburn University
    “You had me on the tip of my toes from the start of the book till the end of the book. The book is bold, honest, educational, and inspiring.”

    Jimmy Cochran, columnist for the Henry Times
    “A Quiet Roar has made an impact on my life unlike any other book. It will continue in my heart and life for a long time.” – Jimmy Cochran, columnist for the Henry Times.

    Bill Grandi, Senior Pastor
    “Over the years I have read a ton-and I mean a ton of books. If you read no other novel this coming year, please please please read A Quiet Roar. I guarantee your life and faith will no longer be the same.”

    A Quiet Roar is available now on Amazon (both in paperback and e-book versions). Autographed copies, along with wholesale copies, are available at

    PS - The surprise ending, I believe, will inspire every African American woman.
