Yolonda Tonette Sanders

Yolonda Tonette Sanders took a leap of faith by resigning from her job with the State of Ohio to focus more on writing. It was a leap that she has never regretted, as several of her novels have been published, including Soul Matters, Secrets of a Sinner, and In Times of Trouble. All of her books have appeared on Essence’s bestseller list. Currently, Yolonda resides in Columbus, Ohio, and is the loving wife of David, proud mother of Tre and Tia, and joyful caregiver of her mother, Wilene.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Thanks to Tony Horton from P90X, I find myself saying "Do your best and forget the rest," a lot.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. I honestly have no idea. Maybe failing my children somehow.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think happiness is a state of mind versus circumstances since it's possible to be happy or have joy no matter what's happening around us. Some things may weigh heavier on us than others, but with a loving family, faithful friends, and a merciful God, we can make it!

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. It's a toss between my mother and my husband.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Probably Hawaii. I have never been, but heard it is beautiful and would like to check it out one day.
