Student, Diamond Brown analyzes the subject matter of "Things I Never Talk About"and imagines its elements into art form. TINTA is the wickedly personal plunge into the heart of a motherless girl trying to find guidance as she graduates from girlhood to womanhood, while being raised by a single father. While the end tale captures "themes of forgiveness, love, tenacity, and determination", Brown discusses what this book would look like in the form of a musical given its in-between details. As the author, I was moved tremendously when Diamond told me that she chose my book to report on for her Theatre class assignment.

There’s always that blog or that motivational video that tells you what you did wrong that caused your relationship to fail. You know…
You rushed into it…you didn’t pray about it…you ignored the red flags…and/or you compromised on the values you really shouldn’t have.
But where’s the blog that speaks to the ones that did everything right but you still failed. You didn’t rush; matter of fact you almost stalled the relationship because you were waiting for your prayers to be returned. You weren’t quiet about the red flags you saw. You were a team player but you weren’t a pushover…and yet you STILL. Got. It. Wrong!! “How did this happen?” You wonder in frustration.
May I offer this?
Welcome to my views from this horizon!
