When Jabir Danjuma met Damisi Odinga years ago, it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. However, their attraction can’t be denied. Just as he begins to feel the forbidden emotion, Damisi breaks up with him and moves half way across the world.
Now, Damisi has a request that only Jabir could fulfill. Their encounter sets off a series of events that leave them both with fresh pain and hurt. They vow never to see each other again, but fate has a different idea. Will they stick it out long enough for the Potter to perfect their scars and pain for His purpose or will distance and time steal the day.

Interview with Unoma Nwankwor
When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
I always knew I had stories in me. I just never knew that the stories I had, others would love to read. A life altering incident made me realize my gift of story-telling and writing was given to me for a purpose. When my will to do something with my gift became bigger than my fear of failure, I wrote my first book. Four books later, God is still giving me stories to tell.
Why is the theme of this project important?
Anchored By Love is the second book in my Sons of Ishmael series. I had an idea for this series when I watched Oprah’s fatherless sons a while ago. I wanted to tell the story from a different perspective. Nigerian. This series is a tale about three brothers who shared the same pain with the absence of a father. Each acted out their pain differently but through the love of good women God placed in their life, they are able to pull it together. But they did not go down without a fight.
What did you learn about yourself while writing this book?
This series is about three close knit brothers. As the only girl with four brothers, it was amazing how I was able draw back on memories of banter between my brothers that probably annoyed me growing up, but was great residual research.
How do you find time to write?
With a full time job and a family I catch myself stealing the time actually. Late at night when the family is asleep is always a good time. I take a lot of notes during my lunch breaks and use my phone as a recorder during the long Atlanta drive home.
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
I would work with the late Mrs. MEE Mofe-Damijo. Growing up in Nigeria, the only romances available for me to read were Mills & Boons. That was until I read Centerspread by MEE, it opened by eyes to the fact that dark skinned people, people like me, could be in a romance novel. So I started to follow her career. She wrote some other novels and was the owner of a magazine, a wife and a mother. She inspired me, her death was so unfortunate and I would have loved the opportunity to work with her.
