We all go through trials, but it is up to each of us to determine what our ultimate outcome will be in life

Author Venus Evans decided to embark on a journey to write an urban fiction novel, because she is a reader herself. She wanted to create a novel that included characters that are complex, interesting and relatable. This desire finally came to fruition with her debut novel, “Caught Up in the Midst of Pain” (published by Xlibris), in which she weaves a compelling tale of romance and suspense that she hopes will keep readers captivated as the story keeps them guessing about the final outcome.

The story follows six childhood friends from an inner city neighborhood in Kansas City, Mo. Having come from different backgrounds, they all get caught up in the midst of pain. Through their hardship, some follow a life of crime while others push through the pain to find their success and even find true love.

“Caught Up in the Midst of Pain” is poised to give readers a rollercoaster ride through its tale of romance, action-violence and spirituality held together by an abiding tale of friendship. It is Evans’ hope that, apart from giving them an entertaining read, her readers would also take the positive message in her story.

“We all go through trials, but it is up to each of us to determine what our ultimate outcome will be in life,” said Evans.
