Sex in the church bathroom, an explosion in the choir stand, gun shots in the pastor's office, and an insanely jealous best friend...and that's all just on the wedding day! "The Devil You Know" is a fictional contemporary novel about the planning of a celebirty wedding including colorful characters that will stay with you long after reading the last page.

The book opens with the couple, Tranerious McClintock, a major league baseball player who is very wealthy and his fiancé Angie, a recent USC Law graduate booking the church for their wedding. When they’re done, Angie hastily leaves to go obtain her original birth certificate, only to be told that the abstract she has is fraudulent. When she decides to call her foster mother for answers, she finds out that she has died, sending her spiraling into muddled and a depressed state of shock. She drives around dazed and confused and ends up in the parking lot of her therapist, where she is found with both arms cut from a razor and crying hysterically in the back seat of her car.

The heart of the book begins with Angie’s therapy sessions in which she begins to reveal what life was like growing up in an abusive Compton foster home. It becomes rapidly clear that Angie has several issues that she has yet to deal with including who she is, where she comes from, and who her real parents were. As she begins opening up to the therapist, she continues to plan her wedding which brings along its own set of twist and turns. An unforgettable tale of Angie's quest for self-discovery, hope for unconditional love, and friendships formed and broken, “The Devil You Know” is a drama filled story that unfolds all while a celebrity wedding is being planned and promises to keep you glued to the walk down the aisle and beyond.
