— Baltimore-area attorney Deliah Lawrence, author of the romantic suspense novel “Gotta Let It Go,” is one of four women authors featured at the Black Writers’ Guild of MD (BWG) "Women Writers Rock" panel discussion on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Enoch Pratt Library located at 4330 Edmonson Avenue in Baltimore.

The authors will discuss their publishing journeys and share tips about the writing process, followed by a Q&A segment for the audience. The three other panelists to be featured are: Janice Adams; Margaret Pagan; and Minister Carenda Pittman. BWG’s President Jim Wright served as the panel moderator.

Deliah (“Dee”) Lawrence enjoys writing romantic suspense novels, as well as poetry and short stories. Her debut novel, Gotta Let It Go won the 2011 Finalist Next Generation Indie Book Award in the multi-cultural fiction category.

In “Gotta Let It Go,” moments before Deidre Hunter signs the papers that will end her marriage to her cheating husband, her best friend and divorce attorney gets murdered. Devastated by this tragedy, she sets out with one-intent— to find the killer. In the midst of the investigation, she finds herself attracted to Hill Harris, the handsome but elusive homicide detective assigned to handle the case. Despite his warnings to follow proper police procedures, she strikes out to uncover clues on the crime-ridden streets of Baltimore, which forces her into dangerous circumstances and potential heartache.

“I enjoyed writing this first book in my series particularly because it gives readers a snapshot into the lives of people in Baltimore who live on both sides of the law,” said author Deliah Lawrence.

Lawrence is a member of the Maryland Writers’ Association, Black Writers’ Guild of Maryland, Sisters in Crime and Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. She will release “Gotta Get It Back,” a sequel to her first novel in late spring 2018.
