Monalisa Gayles, a dedicated mother, news editor and reporter, and passionate volunteer for women’s ministry, has completed her new book. “What’s Behind the Makeup?” is an eye-opening account of the author’s lifelong journey to overcome her self-hate and find peace in her daily life.

Author Gayles writes, “For years, I looked in the mirror and hated the person looking back at me.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Monalisa Gayles’s gripping tale covers her life story on how she came from knowing no hope to building a life filled with meaning and reconciliation.

Monalisa lived her life based upon the negative perceptions she had about herself and picked up from others. After the deaths of several close friends, she started to realize her life could end if she made the decision. Walking along the brink of suicide, Monalisa examined herself to find the truth and how and why she had gotten to this dreadful place. She lays open her story for those in need of hope, chronicling the experiences that brought her to the breaking point and the way she chose to rise up out of her despair. Monalisa is proud to say she is no longer bound by fear, rejection, neglect, addiction, guilt, or shame, and strives to see lives changed, especially the lives of women. Encounter one woman’s straightforward account of her path to healing, wellness, and authentic living.

Readers who wish to experience this encouraging work can purchase “What’s Behind the Makeup?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
