About the Author


Tanya Lovejoy-Capers (a.k.a. TLC) is a native New Yorker, born in Brooklyn and raised in Manhattan. She now resides in Charlotte North Carolina, with her family. As a child, she knew that she was different. What she did not know was that it was because she had a passion for people. Tanya understands that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect no matter who they are, especially our elders. She loves listening to stories and learning from her elders. She feels that everyone should help others by sharing their knowledge.

Her belief is that we all have a moral obligation to reach one another to teach one another. This is the reason why she decided to write this handbook as a first-time author. Writing a book was not in her plan, but after mentoring several PhD candidates she discovered a common challenging recurring factor she found it necessary to address. Learners were overwhelmed with time management, organization, and self-care tools.

As an advocate, Tanya strongly believes that we all have a responsibility to share our knowledge to assist others to thrive. As a result, she decided to help PhD learners as much as she could by using her experience with her doctoral program by sharing her tips and tricks to achieve academic success. Tanya chooses to communicate through open and honest dialogue to demonstrate that through adversity learners can successfully prevail in their PhD program, as she has done.

 Dr. Viju Philip 

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.

I grew up in India and graduated in Chemistry and then came over to the US to do my Masters and Doctorate. As an answer to a vision shown by God, we went to a village in INDIA and PLANTED A CHURCH and a K-10 SCHOOL for the children who would not have gone to school otherwise. Over the years, the school has educated about 2000 children, and the ministry still goes on.


Children have been my burden always, and I believe if we take care of today’s children, then we have a better nation tomorrow.


What inspired you to author your book?


The pandemic has left all of us fearful and confused. Such a situation can affect even our spiritual life. We do not know what to pray and how to pray. But we all know that nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer. It is prayer that connects our heart to the heart of God and moves His hand in our life. The very purpose of this devotional and prayer journal is to guide us into a systematic prayer habit that will enable us to ‘Stay Afloat’ during the pandemic and every other crisis of life.


This book is also intended to lead you back to the time when families prayed together. Personal prayer is communion with God—a communion that results in a deep spiritual connection and offers benefits beyond measure. And when we pray with other people—especially with our spouse, parents, or children—prayer can also be a special form of communion with one another. Such praying will have powerful benefits for individuals, couples, and even entire families. 


Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?


A Boat Staying over the waters which can be drawn it! The Boat signifies ‘a family’ and the waters, the pandemic.


Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?


My parents always encouraged me to write my thoughts; unfortunately my dad is no more.


What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?


Time… because I was also involved in helping people who had lost jobs and had nothing eat.


Tell your readers about your book.


In this devotional prayer guide, we will walk you through the fear and confusion of the pandemic or any other crisis we could face, to see God’s faithfulness and purpose shine forth. The importance of prayer during hardship is highlighted, and interactive prayers are included in each chapter.


Who is your target audience, and why?


Families who are finding it difficult to keeping floating.


Families who want to keep the faith.

If you were going to give one reason for anyone looking at your book to read, why should they buy it?

The Last One Out: A Novel Paperback – October 27, 2020

by Victor Adams  (Author)


Montana dodges it. Teri relies on its corruption. It baffles Chris. And Lainey wants to believe it still works. Even Lady Liberty gave up on the U.S. Legal System.
Teri Bradshaw finally conquered life; she got rich. Her TSA agents have been robbing airport passengers for a decade. She ships all our stuff down to Nicaragua to resell around the world. But when that country spirals into civil unrest, can her scheme survive?

In the fires of the Nicaraguan revolution, Christian discovered a lost Spanish treasure. It’s his ticket out. But the one friend who could smuggle it out got trapped in the U.S. by its failed legal system and the cartoonish new expectation lawsuits.

Lainey, the jilted wife of one of Teri’s boyfriends, can prove the sly CEO is a crook. She had to go to Colombia to do it, and now the freedom of expat life beckons. She’ll have to decide whether to follow Lady Justice’s example or return to the U.S. and risk being The Last One Out.
Follow Victor Adams’ hilarious dystopian satire of American life. From a disastrous Disneyland Selfi-Park to tongue-twisting corporate sloganeering and ‘investment ready’ lawsuits.  You’ll wonder where fiction stops and reality starts.

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.

I went to Auburn University and spent over a decade in the finance industry as an analyst and regional director. After receiving an MBA from Vanderbilt, I opened several Nashville based businesses, eventually employing more than fifty people.

In 2017 I cashed out, sold everything I couldn’t fit inside two suitcases, and “the boys” and I (my Siberian huskies) took early retirement in Cartagena, Colombia. I now write and do some consulting on the side.

What inspired you to author this book?

In 2018, I was walking my dogs when a nervous-looking kid in a police uniform aimed a shotgun at them and started shouting in a language I barely understood. It was Nicaragua in 2018, and a civil revolt has begun. In 1996, I was living in St. Petersburg, Russia, when the Soviets made their final push to take power back. Russia in the mid-90s was so wild west; it was common to see track-suited gangsters walk into bars and empty the cash registers. The music never even stopped. I was in Istanbul during the election that cemented the current president’s decades-long rule that moved Turkey away from its secular past. In 2015, the Colombian Navy discovered the holy grail of Spanish treasure galleons, just a few miles from where I live. The ship is said to have sunk with billions in gold on board. History makes a great backdrop for storytelling, and because I retired early, I can tell stories.

What is your book about?

At its heart, The Last One Out is a satirical modern-day treasure hunt for the lost gold of the San Jose treasure galleon. Instead of pirates and naval battles, today’s treasure hunters fight lawsuits and non-disclosure agreements. It’s less exciting but comically more absurd, and I spend a good deal of time lampooning those absurdities. I think our legal system (chiefly the civil side) is probably beyond redemption, and Lady Justice abandoned it to the lawyers long ago.  But it’s also a story about the consequences of your life choices, and the pain you have to endure to correct the bad ones.

What do you hope people will learn from it?

Probably the best piece of advice I was ever given. Whatever decision you make, it won’t be your last one. You can analyze a decision to die, but once you realize that decision is not the last one, it becomes easier to make. If you’ve made a bad call in life, you aren’t stuck on that road forever. It does take a heap of courage change course. It can be hard, it can be hilarious, but it can be done.

Why did you decide to use satire to introduce relevant social topics?

Humor is just my vehicle. People are better humans when they are listening to music or laughing. I can’t make music, so I tell stories to make people laugh. I think satire is a more effective tool for conveying thought. If I yell that we have too many lawsuits, you’re just going to turn the channel. But if I say that you can now invest in lawsuits, like mutual funds, you’re going to ask what I’m talking about.

How much research went into writing the book, especially with regards to all the legal jargon?

The research on The San Jose took time. Everything interesting was in Spanish, so that was a challenge. The legal stuff took a LONG time. It isn’t just understanding it; it’s conveying something designed to be unclear. Using a combination of heretowiths and appalling run-on sentences, so they’ve made the process a nightmare. Not the actual argument part, the process part. I got access to the Lexisnexis database to do a lot of the research. I read a lot of boring case law, and sadly I’ve had a good bit of experience with lawsuits myself. If you own a business that’s been around awhile, you’ve been sued. It’s part of the territory.

Who is your target audience, and why?

People who read general adult fiction and satire.


What’s next for your writing career, any books in the works?

I do have a second book close to halfway written. Turns out, this is going to be series. I’ve actually had to go back and rework a big portion of the 2nd book. Many readers indicated that they loved the villainess in the first novel, so I had to write her back into book 2. The genre is the same, though the subject matter is different. Like The Last One Out, I have crazy business schemes in book 2. I love inventing the barely plausible business. The venues change a good bit in this book; we’re going all the way over to Central Asia… where nobody knows anything about what goes on.

What advice would you give to new writers?

To write stories, you should experience life a little, and that may mean making bad decisions. Sometimes crazy ones, but those are the stories people want to read. I can write an escape scene through a jungle because I’ve spent three hours hiking up a leach infested tropical river. I can write about a sleazy meeting on the frozen Gulf of Finland because I’ve stood on the frozen Gulf of Finland at night. As for writing about pirate treasure…
