Blurb for “Speak Up, I Can’t Hear You!”
Joy K. Massenburge is the author of A Cry for Independence and A Heart Surrendered, African American Romance. She crafts the love stories of pastors and their kids. She was born the sixth child of a pastor. She married a football player turned pastor…they raised pastor’s kids; a son and two daughters.
As a pastor’s wife, she found her voice speaking at marriage and women’s conferences and retreats throughout Texas. She filled her speaking material with her poems, short stories, and devotions. She added narrator to her professional portfolio when she debuted in Michelle Stimpson’s “MAMA B: A Time to Speak,” audible book. She is also a contributing author for Our Daily Bread: Oh, Freedom edition.
She serves on the board of American Christian Fiction Writers. She is also the founding president of their ACFW-East Texas Writers.
