Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant, best friends for 25 years, have turned a friendship into the most successful and enduring writing collaboration in African American fiction. Donna and Virginia first met as plus size models vying for the same assignments. They were both featured in catalogs, ads, magazines and made national television appearances. Their modeling careers led to the opportunity to launch Maxima, a fashion and lifestyle magazine for plus-size women, where Virginia was editor-in-chief and Donna the managing editor. When publication of Maxima ceased, Virginia and Donna decided to try writing a book together.
Virginia DeBerry recommends
Playing By the Rules (2006)
Elaine Meryl Brown
"Playing by the rules isn't always easy-but in this quirky, self-cloistered community, Lemon City's peculiarly delightful, eccentric residents do their best to follow the town's ten mandates-even with outsiders. Elaine Meryl Brown's storytelling is new and fresh, yet warmly familiar."
