My Life in Shoes
About the Book
This book chronicles the life of a fictional character named Chastity Barnes. Chastity isn’t your average Southern girl. She’s gorgeous, her IQ is off the charts, and she knows how to hustle. But even for a brilliant girl like Chastity, the world can be full of danger and heartbreak. Spanning the main character’s lifetime from her childhood in Momma’s kitchen to the present day, My Life in Shoes is a testament to Chastity’s resilience and redemption—though the world tries to tear her down, she remains, stronger than ever. Chastity grows as a result of her struggles and isn’t crippled by them.
This book began as a submission for a final project in the author’s senior year of college at Tulane University, originally entitled Tears of Chastity. Sherinee’ received an A- with an inscription from the professor that she would love to see this novel fully developed and encouraged the author to continue writing. That professor was Anne Rice, a.k.a. the Vampire Lady.
