• "Tara as her life experiences were so different from my own. Reading this was a reminder to me that things look differently when you look at them through your own lens of experience. If you strip that lens away and look at things from a different perspective they look vastly different."
    ~Teresa's Corner

  • “…the story of young Tara from the time she is nine to the day the man of her dreams finally gets down on one knee… Bannerman takes us on a journey of surprising highs and extraordinary lows...Her portrayal of Tara's ascension into the world from child to woman is felt with each impasse, and by the end it's as if we were there beside her, witnessing it all first hand.”
    ~Examiner.com

  • “The flow of the book makes the reader feel as though they are right beside the woman as she goes through all of her trials and tribulations growing up. … The way the writer puts you into her world it is like she is telling her best friend (which is the reader) everything that is going on in her life.”
    ~John Haltiwanger, Amazon.com

Introducing her first published work of Fiction, Black Child to Black Woman.

Black Child Book Cover

Black Child to Black Woman is a ‘live diary’ experience that will grab your attention right from the start. Tara Walker speaks directly to the reader as she adds entry after entry into her Journal. She documents her experiences, her family life, her triumphs, as well as her interpretation of life and the world as she saw it. As she grows, so does the language and tone of the diary, which matches her maturity and speech patterns as the time passes.

Experiences are mere images engraved in our minds that we recall when future events occur such as a tragedy or even when a song is playing on the radio. Tara has captured those moments in time in her diary, even the painful ones. Although she came from a loving home with both parents, she struggled to come to grips with siblings addicted to drugs, molestation, attempted rape, broken hearts, and so much more.

Her diary experiences will make you laugh, cry, scream, sigh, and gasp aloud. As Tara struggles to keep her head above water and fight through the tribulations of her life, she continues to smile, continues to grow as a person, continues to be successful in her career, and continues to survive. Through it all and through her daughter, she eventually discovers the true meaning of unconditional love.

Come discover life through the eyes of Tara as she grows from a black child to a black woman.
