If you found out you were dying, would you suddenly confess all your past sins?
When former chart-topper Tiffany Knightly learns that she’s dying from cancer, she leaves behind her plush California lifestyle to return to Hempstead, New York, with Karlie, her reluctant teenaged daughter. Her fans think she has simply gone home to die, but Tiffany has another mission. She desperately wishes she could leave her past in the past, but in order to secure her daughter’s future, she must tear open past wounds.
Life wasn’t always easy for Tiffany. With a stepfather who abused her and a mother who didn’t believe her, she acted out by becoming promiscuous. Fifteen years later, she’s back to reveal to her ex-husband that he might not be Karlie’s biological father. In fact, there are four men who could have fathered Karlie–four that she’s willing to acknowledge, anyway.
As Tiffany reveals her truth and searches for Karlie’s father, she reconnects with old friends and old lovers. Some reunions are happy, but some innocent lives are torn apart, leaving Tiffany to wonder if she’s doing the right thing. Through it all, she will have to learn to rely on the healing power of God’s unfathomable love.

Interview with Michell Lindo-Rice
When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
It was twelve years ago that I began officially writing. I had two young boys, and I realized that I could transfer my love of reading into writing.
Why is the theme of this project important?
The theme of this project is important because there are so many women who were the objects of sexual abuse but never spoke about it. However, going through this trauma changes them, and can lead to other destructive behaviors. Sing A New Song chronicles one woman who overcame and faced the repercussions head on while discovering a love for Christ.
What did you learn about yourself while writing this book?
I learned the important of perseverance, and believing in myself. I also learned how to accept constructive criticism and that it is important to develop and build my craft as a writer. I learned that I enjoyed writing and that this talent and gift is God given, and must ultimately give God glory.
How do you find time to write?
As a single mother of two teenaged sons, I found I had to make sacrifices and be creative at finding time to write. I wrote at night and weekends, since I have a full-time job. But, ultimately, writing is a passion, and you must make time for your passion.
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
If I could work on a writing project with someone from the past, it would be King David or Solomon. If I could work with someone alive, it would be Victoria Christopher Murray or ReShonda Tate Billingsley. Can I say more?
