All of her books have appeared on Essence’s bestseller list.

Yolonda Tonette Sanders
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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Playing basketball. It is my favorite sport, besides volleyball, and I cannot play at all.

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.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Michael Scofield from the television series, Prison Break.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Lol. My husband would probably say my "favorite" songs continually change. However, there are five that are consistently on the list. "I Almost Let Go," by Kurt Carr because it reminds me of how good God has been to me. "Still Say, Thank You" by Smokie Norful because it represents how I feel about God. "He Loves Me" by Jill Scott because it makes me think of my husband. "In Times of Trouble" because it's the theme song for my novel. "Cupid Shuffle" because I like doing the dance.
