More About the Author

My official writing career began in 1987 when my first short story was published. My first novel, Rooms of the Heart was published in 1990. Since then there have been a slew of books and short stories that I've had published, from romance to women's fiction, chic-lit, erotica and mysteries. I enjoy them all. Three of my novels were adapted for television so that was exciting. I've had the honor of conceptualizing and editing several collections: After the Vows, Midnight Clear, Where There's a Will, Indecent Exposure, and The Hot Spot. I currently write full time and live in Brooklyn, NY with my family.

It has been months since Regina Everette made the decision to leave her husband and quit her job, and although it hasn't been a bed of roses, she doesn't regret the decision in the least. She has a new outlook on life, a new man, and her own business. Just when Regina feels things couldn't be better, the winds of change blow. Will these changes upset the applecart that is Regina's life?

Victoria Hunter has it all, including a loving and dedicated husband and a baby on the way. The only problem is she's not happy with any of it. When her doubts and insecurities threaten their marriage, Victoria's husband secretly takes it upon himself to get to the root of her problems. Will his secrecy blow up in his face, or will the results be just what the doctor ordered?

Antoinette Devon has royally screwed up her life by sleeping with someone other than her husband Charles. When Charles finds out, he is understandably upset and wants nothing more to do with her. Realizing that she truly loves Charles and wants her marriage and her family back, Antoinette tries to convince him to give her another chance. Just when she thinks he has acquiesced, the unthinkable happens, sending Antoinette into a tailspin of despair, with drastic results. What will be the outcome?

SAY YES, Donna Hill's latest literary endeavor, is the highly anticipated sequel to If I Could. It has been years since readers were left wondering what happened with Regina and Parker, but SAY YES is definitely worth the wait. This was a dynamic novel that eloquently depicts the three most important factors in any relationship - faith, love and trust. Fans of Hill are sure to enjoy this book.

Readers may remember Regina Everette leaving her husband and making a new life in Donna Hill's novel, If I Could. In Say Yes, Regina is back and living life on her own terms. She has a new love in the person of artist Parker Heywood. She also has her thriving bookstore business. Life seems to be going her way or is it?

Parker wants to take their relationship to the next level, but Regina is reluctant. She is not quite ready and her children are really not ready. They are still hoping that their parents will get back together. In fact, Regina ex-husband Russell is hoping that they can get back together. Parker is also facing some major changes in his life. He has just found his daughter whom he has not seen in years and is on his way to California to see her. Before he can get on the plane, he gets a phone call that can changes his life. The news he receives can tear this couple apart or bring them closer. They must consider their happiness and decide what they want for their future. Can children change everything?

Regina friends, Victoria and Toni are also back. Victoria is still trying to come to terms with the color of her skin. In everyone else's opinion, she has everything, a good job, a great husband and a baby on the way. In trying to understand her unhappiness, her husband investigates her background and what he finds can help her come to terms about who she really is. Toni is still reeling from the damage she caused by cheating on her husband. She wants him back and is willing to do anything to get him to understand how desperately she wants to turn back the hands of time.

Say Yes was a good read. In revisiting Regina, Toni and Victoria, we find some things are still the same, but mostly they have changed for the better.

I read the first book: If I Could. I liked the girl get togethers and loved the way Regina gave it to her friends when they all jumped on her but was sad to see another marriage fall apart. Reading Say Yes was a good wrap up but that really was all it was. Every relationship has it's struggles and Ms. Hill does a good job at showing the other side but I worry that some of the things that make a romance; passion, spontaneity and fire was lost in this story. Don't get me wrong passion was there but it felt more like old couple passion. Does that only make sense to me? There comes a time when the fire is still burning but it's lukewarm instead of hot. The struggles they went through Regina and her friends were real; past girlfriends, fear of submitting after divorce, adultery, self worth issues and children but maybe it was too real. Some people read romance novels to escape reality this book brings reality to your doorstep.

*********************SPOILER ALERT******************
Say Yes was my first book by Donna Hill and I really enjoyed the first half of it. I felt drawn into the characters and couldn't wait to find out about Victoria's secrets, what Toni planned to do about Alan and Charles, and how Regina's and Parker's relationship would play out. Sadly, at the halfway point, the book took a turn that I didn't necessarily enjoy. There were big build ups for drama but the outcome was more like a dud. Victoria's "secret" reveal was so anti-climatic and the resolution was almost immediate. Based on how she'd been described previously, her quick acceptance of what her husband had done seemed unlikely. And I didn't buy how her life was suddenly so perfect and all of her issues resolved after one meeting with her real family. To be honest, that's what irked me about the entire second half of the book. Everything was resolved too quickly. There would be a major issue in one paragraph and then in the next, it was over. It took me a while to finish because I lost interest in the story and the characters.

I grew to hate Regina's self-righteous, preachy, holier-than-thou attitude. I also didn't understand why so many people wanted to be like her. What was so fantastic about Regina that other women needed to pattern their lives after hers? I'm not saying it wasn't hard for her to leave Russell and start over on her own . . . but women do that all the time. Every time someone praised her and said how much they wanted to be like her it got on my last nerve! I honestly didn't see her as being that great. We were told how wonderful of a mother she was but it wasn't evident throughout the story.
