(BPRW) Richelle A. Lorde releases first book, A Matter of Choice

-Senior Pastor of a Mega Church, Business Owner of an Exclusive Fashion Brand, College Professor, former Beauty Queen and more now adds Author to her extensive repertoire of accomplishments -

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL -- From serving as a Senior Pastor of a mega church in Miami Gardens, to her role as the first and only female Chaplain for the City’s Police Force, this former model and beauty queen has had a life-long burning desire to expand her love for writing and business development and took it to a whole new level.   

Richelle A. Lorde has penned her first novel, entitled “A Matter of Choice.”  Her love for literature has now manifested in her debut book, A Matter of Choice, an inspiring fiction novel.

A Matter of Choice focuses on Alicia, who finds out who she really is and how her journey to venture a path that refuses to settle for social and gender divide, sexism and the like, unlocks a truth within her that changes her very existence – just when life couldn’t get any better.  From start to finish, this riveting story of a young woman’s journey into the essence of who she was created to be brings a sense of self-reflection, as so much of Alicia’s world and series of events in some way or another can easily mirror our own.

“I am so excited to release this novel, A Matter of Choice.  It is a captivating novel and one that I strongly encourage the readers to share in Alicia’s wonderful discovery and to be a part of the fan club that cheers her on from chapter to chapter and book to book,” says Richelle A. Lorde. “Like Alicia, sooner or later, we will all realize that life decisions are just a matter of choice.  My hope is that this novel takes each reader on a deep and inner-personal track on who they are and where they are going in their lives.”
