Host: Hello, Clarissa, Thank You for this Interview, Let me First start your Interview by asking what made you select the title "Sleeping with the Enemy" for your book?
Clarissa: My Book originated from a True Story based on different events which happen in my own life.
Host: Who was your favorite Character and Why?
Clarissa: "Well I must say it's "Cherise" because She and I, both had a calling on our lives, and we both had to learn many lessons about people and how to deal with men like "Mr. Terrell." I don't want to give it away...
Host: What is your passion for writing "Sleeping with the Enemy"?
Clarissa: My passion as a Christian Fiction Author is to restore the broken hearted and reveal how God can restore a person's life if they "TRUST HIM"! And I also want my readers to know I am a very transparent writer who will take your Faith to another level.
Host: Is there anything else you would like your Reader's to know about "Clarissa Lighthouse Johnson"?
Clarissa: Yes, I have been Blessed by God! I believe that if God calls us to do something, He will provide the way to get his work done! In the making of "Sleeping with the Enemy" It was there I grew to know Christ more and more. I believe He elevated me high enough to help others and Now there's no stopping me. And In my quest to renewing my walk with Christ I begin to See "Lighthouse Fiqurines" all over the place after a Good friend gave me one while facing my own storm. The message I received was I was considered A Light in Darkness" So I've Incorporated the word "Lighthouse" in my name and I have collected lots of Lighthouse Figurines every since then.
Host: Before we end this interview Is there any favorite part of your book you would like to share with your viewer's and why?
Clarissa: Yes, This is a Part from the Character Cherise....
"EVERYTIME SHE SUBMITTED SEXUALLY, "AS UNTO THE LORD"SHE FELT AS IF SHE HAD BEEN RAPED. -Clarissa Johnson
I can identify with "Cherise" Because she and I needed Christ to not only Save us, but heal us as well. Below is a Short description of "Cherise Tillman"
Hi, my name is Cherise Tillman. Although a little thick, I am quite sexy if I must say so myself. Everybody loves me and I love everybody. I am truly a people's person, but my husband, Terrell has a problem with my exuberant personality. On the outside, I appear to be happy but on the inside, I'm a mess. See, I have this problem. I am very unhappy in my marriage to Terrell. He is quite abusive (not necessarily physically, but emotionally and mentally). Of course, there was a few times he's threatened me with a gun, and oh yeah, that time that he pushed me down on the bed and raped me. I am so close to leaving this buster, but I have another problem. I'm sure you're saying, "honey, leave that fool", but you see, it's just not that easy for me. See, I honor my vows but more importantly, I honor the Lord. The Bible says that He hates divorce, and being a minister and worship leader in the church, I just don't want to do anything to displease Him. I tell you though, I'm literally on the edge and I am just about to lose my mind in this house with this fool. Yal please pray for me b/c I tell you, sometimes I swear I'm literally *Sleeping With The Enemy*. I have to go and pray now b/c I have a real tough decision to make. Clarissa will keep yal posted on whatever I decide, just purchase a copy of my story, Sleeping With The Enemy at www.clarissajohnson.com. Even if you don't buy today, you can at least see if things have gotten any better for us b/c the first three chapters is available for sample on the website. Also available on Kindle and Nook.
