Jerri Locke, a Chicago native with poetry and writing in her blood, has completed her first book “I’d Rather Go to Hell Than the Heaven That You’re In”: a gripping and potent exploration of faith and self-examination that is a powerful reminder of God's love for his children.

Jerri describes her childhood as one that was torn between two families that were linked together by marriage and her. She loved both sides, but often became discouraged when one side would make fun of her for having characteristics of the other. This caused her to have a very interesting, but challenging childhood. Growing up no one listened to her when she tried to express her feelings, so writing was always her only outlet.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jerri Locke’s poignant tale is a story of a girl’s coming of age while walking the narrow path of Jesus, trusting in his help and guidance.

Zonita is an orphan. She grew up with questions of her parentage, raised by her religious, wise old grandma Big Belle. Always listening to relatives and neighbors badmouth her mother and not knowing who her father is, she grew up wanting to prove everybody wrong, to make something of herself, be a success and have a wonderful and happy life with the man of her dreams. But fate has different plans for her. Confronted with teenage pregnancy and its stigma, poverty, the censure of her family, and her own personal demons, Zonita struggles to go through them all while trying to have faith in God and trying to believe in herself.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase“I’d Rather Go to Hell Than the Heaven That You’re In” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
