LaToya: Tell us about your latest book.
Geraldetrick: My latest book is titled, “Here Am I, Send Me”. It was inspired from my life and a supernatural moment that occurred in my life. “Here Am I Send Me” is actually biblically inspired from the scripture of Isaiah 6:8 also. In my book I basically captured the obstacles that I face growing through adolescence as a African American male. I wanted to be an example as well as a voice that speaks about the events that occur in typical African American males lives through adolescence. The “Here Am I, Send Me” title ties into my story at the point of the Supernatural moment, in which God gave me purpose and the assignment of bringing this story forward to the public.
