A slave woman escapes with her infant daughter in the dead of winter then returns to the town she had escaped from to legally outwit her former master, winning freedom for her abused son. She then went on to fight for women’s rights and laid the groundwork for allowing women to vote. All the while, risking her life to help other slaves and abolish slavery. Amazingly, she wasn’t able to read or write but met with three presidents, hundreds of politicians, gave speeches to crowds all over the country, found jobs for freed slaves. She spoke in front of congress. Challenged the first desegregation laws and helped shape the future of America becoming a national hero during the Civil War.
America’s First Real Superhero nobody hears about,
The Traveler of Truth (*Sojourner Truth).
This is not the normal boring documentary about Sojourner Truth. This makes it real. Her personal story. Why she escaped. The people she met. The problems she had to overcome. How she became so intertwined into American History and why the nation loved her.
Quotes from my editor,
“Gee. You slayed me. I am a better woman having read this. Thank You.”
“…You did such a tribute to her, bringing her to life and showing just how vibrant, honest and good this woman was. She is a yardstick to be measured by…. I am still crying.”

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Sojourner Truth is one of most extraordinary persons in history I have come across.She worked to change the world and never give up. She kept God and the Bible as her guide while she toured the country helping others and changing the course of history. She is listed by the Smithsonian Institute as one of the 100 Most Influential Americans Every. I was astonished at all she had accomplished and the racism, hatred and violence she endured. She was a true child of Christ.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
