Faye Thompson’s love affair with books began early on. By age ten she was pounding out her first book on the keys of her mother’s old manual typewriter. A product of the New York City Public School System and a summa cum laude York College graduate, today she is the author of four drama-drenched gems–In Her Mother’s Shadow, Cheesecake and Teardrops, Red-Hot Pepper, and Slippin’ Sippin’ Saints…
Her second novel, Cheesecake and Teardrops (2009), met with rave reviews, landing her a coveted spot in Black Expressions Magazine. Living in New York, three best girlfriends struggle to resist a seductive boss, commitment-phobic boyfriends, and a body by Haagen-Dazs®. The trio embarks upon a spiritual odyssey of redemption, forgiveness, self-acceptance, and tolerance in their quest to be made whole. Cheesecake and Teardrops quickly became a book club favorite.
