Get to know Lynn Bryant-Bruce:


1.       Tell us what this book is about?

My book, Rock to a Diamond introduces you to a woman who finds herself on a road of self-destructive behavior, always accepting the worse, when she knows she deserves the best. She’s so hungry for love, largely due to the love she desired from a daddy who wasn’t there, that many times she finds herself with someone else’s man. In this work, I tried to provide understanding for the “other woman,” the woman who too often gets the bad rap, labeled a home wrecker, jezebel and other choice words I won’t mention. No one ever cares to hear her story or try to understand how insecurity, low self-esteem and the feeling of unworthiness can lead you on a path of destruction, but I had to tell her story. I explore the struggles, heartbreaks, heartaches and lies; the abuse and torment she endures in breaking a rock to expose the diamond that she truly is.


2.       Why did you choose to write this book?

Someone asked me a long time ago was I a rock or a diamond. I didn’t understand why they asked that until one day I was sitting outside looking at all of these rocks lying on the ground. It was at this point in my life, where I had begun this journey to see myself as valuable and worthy of love because it was something I struggled with and paid a dear price for. As I looked at the rocks all shapes, sizes, and colors, but there was nothing special. I watched as people kicked them, bikes rolled over them and then something shiny caught my eye. Immediately I went to retrieve it thinking it was gold or a diamond something valuable but it wasn’t. I didn’t care about the rocks or what happened to them but that thing that was shiny, I was willing to dig through dirt to get it because of what I thought it was worth. I realized at that moment how I saw myself and what I had to do and Rock to a diamond was born

3.       Tell us why your writing is unique? I think what’s unique about this story was taking the actual process of finding a diamond inside of a rock and correlate it in the life of Denise in the book.

4.       What can we look forward from you?  Right now I am finishing a play that is scheduled for production later on this year. My business partner and I have opened a production company under Gemini Enterprises so we’re hoping to do some big things in my home town. And a few other things that are in the works as well.
