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 flaw?

A. I sometimes overthink things.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. I don't like to see people eat meals without washing their hands or at least putting on hand sanitizer. I'm not sure this is the biggest, but it is definitely up there!

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I genuinely care about people.

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.
