North Carolina’s Author Releases Third Trivia Book

Alicia Aiken Provides Third Challenge for Bible Lovers

North Carolina Author On The Rise

How long have you been a writer?

I had been writing for several years and stopped for a while, but I started back in 2007 writing articles, poetry and short stories for various sites.


 Tell us about yourself?

 I’m a wife, and a mother who loves the Lord. I was born in Walterboro, SC to King S. Jr. and Jessie Ellison. I enjoy volunteering in my community and spending quality time with my family and friends.


What is most important in your life?

 There are many things that are important in my life. My husband, my parents, my beautiful children and grandchildren, my family and love ones, but the most precious is my acceptance of my Savior Jesus Christ.

 How many books do you have out?

 1.Powerful Bible Scriptures on Healing-Alicia Grant

 2.Bible Scriptures to Combat the Spirit of Depression-Alicia Grant

 3.The Psalms and You: A Daily Meditation-Alicia Grant

 4.Old Testament Bible Trivia Multiple Choice Genesis-II Kings-Alicia Aiken

 5.New Testament Bible Trivia Fill In The Blanks Matthew-Revelation-Alicia Aiken

 6.I Can Be Anything I Want To Be-Alicia Aiken

 7.The Ruby In The Hat Box-M. Garvin

8.Madison and Mason Learn the Values of Fitness-A. Daniels

 *And several others


 How many do you have in the works?

 I’m working on combining two pieces of my work, “Old Testament Bible Trivia Multiple Choice Genesis-II Kings”, and “New Testament Bible Trivia Fill In The Blanks From Matthew-Revelation.” My second piece of work is a novella that I’m currently working on entitled, “Nettie.” This novella is about a mother who escaped from slavery and was terrified to learn that her nine year old daughter was kidnapped and sold into slavery and possibly living in the very house she had escaped from.


 Are the characters in your book important?

 Yes, they are very important since they make the story. I want them to take on a life and to have such a presence that the reader feels as if they are there witnessing the story and the outcome.


Tell us about your book, characters

Well, I have written various books with several characters. I guess if I had to choose one of my favorites it would be the character(s) from the book entitled, “I Can Be Anything I Want To Be.” I love this eBook because it challenges the imagination of a child. It allows them to see pictures that will awake their imagination and encourage them to reach for the stars. From this book my quote was created, “When you encourage a child you elevate a child.” This eBook is available in Afrikaans, English, French, Japanese, and Spanish and will impact many children lives.


Do you research for your books?

 Some of them yes, but not all it depends on what subject I’m taking on. If it is biblical yes I do.


Can you tell us more about the coming up events in your life?

 I’m looking forward to finishing and releasing my novella “Nettie.” I’m a candidate for a position on the City Board and I’m elated about that.







Thank you in advance for supporting this author.
