Extraordinary Love Series Title: E Love Series Book 4 by Danyelle Scroggins

I want to introduce you to a fabulous author, Danyelle Scroggins. We have something in common -- we both reside in the great state Louisiana; so we have a kndred bond between us. Danyelle has authored numerous books and writes with a Christian flair. Here is her interview below.


Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.
My name is Danyelle Scroggins. I was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. After a seven-year duty tour as a military wife, I moved back home, divorced, and now live in a small town called Gloster. I am the Senior Pastor of New Vessels Ministries North in Shreveport, Louisiana. I am the author of both Christian fiction and non-fiction books.I studied Theology at Louisiana Baptist University, have a Psychology Degree from the University of Phoenix, an Interdisciplinary Degree, and a Masters in Religious Education from Liberty University. I am the owner of Divinely Sown Publishing LLC.

What inspired you to author this book?
This is book 4 of a wonderful series entitled The E Love Series- inspired by my new granddaughter Emiya’rai. This entire series is so special to me because it's my first series and it has done quite well.

Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
My cover model on this particular book is my son. On book 1-3 are my daughters. It has been a blessing to have them on my team, and they encourage me so much.

Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
I would have to first give this credit solely to the Lord. I have been gifted with the art of telling stories, and it has been a blessing from the Most High for sure. Lately, I've also been influenced by a wonderful author who goes by the pen name Liz Isaacson. She's been the perfect example of pushing through and doing what you are put on earth to do.

What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
To be honest, I have no struggles writing the books that are sown into my heart, it's the promotions for me. The struggle of having to promote and write at the same time can be overwhelming. But as with all things, I've been praying about this too.

Tell your readers about your book.

Dwight loves all things female, but he’s not settling down until he finds someone who fits the category of extraordinary. 

She has to be all the things he’s seen in his mother and more, but until then, he has his mindset to keep doing what his Uncle Butter suggested; give the rats some cheese.

The only woman he might have settled with, Jamecia, is now wearing white boy Jacob on her arm. Little does Dwight know, he’s about to come face to face with the next best thing to Jamecia, her sister Jayla.

Jayla has had her share of dudes, but this time, she’s made a promise to her sister and to God to stop searching for the right guy. After a few failed relationship, she almost believes that love is not in the plan for her.

That doesn’t stop her from being all in with making sure her cousin Nathan’s bridesmaids have the best wedding shoes her hands can make.

What Jayla doesn’t know is the guy she’s instructed to escort to the groom’s dressing room, could very well be the guy who is going to change her life completely.

Who is your target audience, and why?
I believe that those who love sweet romance and inspirational, but Christian books are my audience, but I welcome anyone who loves to read, and I will tell you why. When writers look for their niche audience, they look for those who like their genre, but I also would like to reach those who may have never tried the genre of Christian Fiction. So, because I have sense enough to know that everyone is not my audience, I'd definitely put my energies into targeting those who love the Lord.

What do you consider your greatest success in life?
My greatest success is raising three wonderful children who are college-educated and love all things books.

What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?
The one thing that sets me apart is knowing that I write exactly what the Lord has placed on my heart. It was the one thing that kept traditional publishers from accepting my books, but also the same thing that has caused me to be in the business for over eighteen years and thriving.
