Q.   Who is Grant Lewis, Jr.?

A.   A true romantic. A dreamer. Just a simple African-American male who is striving to make a statement.

Q.   What inspired you to write a story about 3 women lives in today society which reflects the biblical lives of Queen Bath-sheba, Queen Jezebel and Queen Esther?

A.  I've always been fascinated with the bible and biblical motion pictures. As well, I esteem strong-willed women--past and present day. My initial quest was to explore positions and life styles of Blacks (dark-skinned people) in ancient times. Comprehending that we, Blacks or African-Americans, were once actually kings and queens and lived opulent lives, it was amazing to discover that this was indeed true.

Q.   How did you come about the title "Three Seeds Of Eve?"

Q.    What type of atmosphere do you require to write?

Q.    What message would you like readers to receive from reading "Three Seeds Of Eve?"
