The Priscilla series chronicles the coming-of-age and adventures of a modern-day, self-assured African American young woman abducted from her comfort level in the American Midwest to the savannas and wilds of southern Africa and more.
“The author knows the inner workings of state politics, the wily maneuvers, the party bartering, and the importance of rank, experience, and sponsorship. Priscilla survives an affair with her boss, weathering it like a veteran from New York tabloid wars while writing a letter about her former allies that would have destroyed someone else in real life. It makes for good reading that keeps the reader interested.”
“A classic bildungsroman. Simms-Maddox demonstrates her knowledge of the game firsthand with great descriptive details and political jargon throughout this thriller.”
MARIE LINTON UMEH, Ph.D.
“Refreshing to meet an author of a series about a contemporary African American young woman comparable to Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins and Leonid McGill.”
