AAMBC Blog Tours with Ngozi

Love’s Destiny introduces Naeerah, a somewhat naïve young woman, whose entire life’s schedule is suddenly interrupted by a chance meeting with a Christian rock star named Luke.

She’s immediately thrown into the spotlight of being a rock star’s girlfriend and all that lifestyle entails. Her father is not happy with their relationship because he fears it will take her off course. Defying her father, she moves to Luke’s hometown for a chance to get to know him better, only to find out when she gets there that she doesn’t fit the mold of what those closest to Luke would like to see him with.

Through a whirlwind of dramatic circumstances, she’s forced back home with her parents and is separated from the love of her life. Will divine destiny unfold in their lives when there seems to be no hope?

Ngozi M. Obi, PharmD. resides in the state of Virginia where she currently practices as a pharmacist.  She has published two books to date, Love’s Destiny & When Dreams and Visions collide.  In her spare time, when she’s not busy writing books, she enjoys going to the spa, shopping and reading.

 

Get to Know Ngozi:

Question: What can you tell me about yourself (the author) ?

Answer: I’m a pharmacist. I live & practice in Virginia.

Question: What inspires you as an author?

Answer: Everything in real life. I have a huge imagination & I’m always thinking of how to incorporate everyday happenings into an exciting book.

Question: Who is your hero?

Answer: My mom. I wish she was still on this earth to see me fulfill my dream of becoming an Author.

Question: In the book Love’s Destiny, Luke says he knew Naeerah was the one for him the moment he saw her so when it comes to love & marriage, do you believe God has one person He’s created for us or many people who fit the bill for us to pick from?

Answer: I think this question is open for discussion.  I personally believe that God gives us the free will to choose someone according to His will and gives us the discernment to know who is right for us.  I think the harder task these days is staying with the person you’ve chosen over the long haul.

Question: Is Love’s destiny some sort of self-help book?

Answer: It’s fiction but if it helps you help yourself then that’s a good thing.

Question: What’s your take on interacial relationships since Luke and Naeerah are an interacial couple?

Answer: You can’t help who you fall in love with so generally, I don’t have a problem with it. However, I think it’s wrong when people go out of their way to exclude people of their own race from the dating pool.

Question: Naeerah’s father threatened to disown her if she married Luke.  Do you value your parents’ opinion when it comes to who to date or marry or even just living life in general? Should it matter what they think?

Answer: I think parents are there to guide and teach children the difference between right and wrong! Adult children should always take parental opinion under advisement and parents should trust their adult children to make good decisions based on what’s been instilled in them.

 

Excerpt from Love’s Destiny”

“We’re each only given

one lifetime here on earth.

And that lifetime is

indeed what we make of it

with God’s help.

There are many paths that

may lead us to different destinations

in our lifetime,

some good, some not so good.

If we’re fortunate enough

in the lifetime we’re given

we can find that one path

that will lead us

to our divine destiny

and that’s the cake.

But if we’re truly fortunate,

we can also find that one person,

our soul mate, if you wish,

who will love us unconditionally,

faults and all

and journey along with us on this

God-given path.

Finding our one true love

during our one lifetime

makes the burdens more bearable,

the adventures more breath-taking

and the sweet times like candy

because we have

someone to share it with.

After all, our lifetime was meant

to be shared,

and that is definitely

the icing on the cake.
