Penny Blacwrite Joyride: When Loyalty Kills synopsis
At nineteen years old, Joyce Ann “Joi” Holloway was arrested for a slew of outstanding warrants she’d racked up for shoplifting, credit card scams, and fake checks. This wasn’t her first time serving time, but it was the first time she’d been arrested while pregnant. After giving birth while handcuffed to a hospital bed and raising her daughter, Nia, in a prison nursery on Rikers Island, Joi turned her life around for good.
She enrolled in school, landed a decent job, and maintained an eleven-year relationship with Clyde, an older hustler who took her and Nia in. Despite the stark age difference between the two and Clyde’s usual hang ups, things were going just fine, until the night before Nia’s fifth-grade graduation.
Disappointed and distraught, Joi becomes a single mom again, struggling to parent her hypersexual daughter while battling the conflicting influences from her recovering drug-addicted mother, Pam, and her ghetto fabulous sister, Gloria.
With no one to rely on when tragedy after tragedy occurs, Joi is forced to put her faith and trust in her new mystery man. Many will question where Joi’s loyalty lies as she juggles her responsibilities of nurturer and protector to Nia and caretaker to Pam, all while staying out of trouble with law enforcement and still getting her selfish needs met.
Readers are in for an exhilarating ride of raw emotions mixed with realistic and nostalgic flashbacks that will excite, frustrate, and jerk them to the core.
The book is available on Amazon HERE.
Penny resides in New Jersey where she runs her women’s fashion boutique. She’s already working on her next book, which she anticipates releasing soon.
