Author Biography

Dominique Wilkins is a licensed cosmetologist and married mother of five children who writes short stories to which everyone can relate. In a time where crime is high, morale is low, and drama is everywhere, Dominique writes to encourage her readers and provide them with resources to keep them going and do better. Read real stories about bad parents; jealous neighbors; backstabbing friends; cheating; love; pain; and the ability to inspire change or provide a life lesson. Transferring a decade of emotional support and encouragement from the beauty shop to the pages, these stories are written with biblical messages intermingled for the reader to refer back to or research for more healing on their particular need directly from The Bible.

Dominique believes that we often cannot solve our own problems, but maybe, when they're put into a story in someone else's shoes, they can then be seen and solved more easily. She's written over 15 short stories for you to enjoy. She has received great 5 star reviews for many of her titles, such as Theresa in Wonderland, 7:10, The Bad Parent and even Forgiven. Not Forgotten.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

I Need a Little More Jesus by Dominique Wilkins is about Giselle Donahue who falls pregnant. Her family, who are staunch church-goers, feel ashamed and send her out of the house. Her father is unable to face the humiliation and forbids her from coming back home. Giselle feels guilty about the whole episode and she feels God will punish her for the sin. It is at that time she meets Veronica, a prostitute and Mitch, an old man who, like her, is undergoing trials. The book brings together three different people from different walks of life, but facing the same problems.

The book leads you on to the path of God. Every one of us undergoes trials and tribulations in life. The book tells us to believe in God and open ourselves to His grace, love, and blessings. The author has beautifully woven the stories of three different people together, who are undergoing problems in their lives and how they meet and support each other.

The book reaffirms your faith in the Lord and tells us that we all need Jesus to save us from our problems. The importance of God in our daily lives and the necessity of prayer is spoken about beautifully throughout the story. Each character's misery is etched out well by the author. The message in the book is that whatever strata of society we belong to, God is there for anyone and everyone, irrespective of where we come from. Dominique Wilkins is a favorite author of mine, so I really enjoyed this.
