Often we don’t consider the struggles of a single father who desires to be a good father to his kids. How often do we look at the obstacles they face? We often look at the mother, but there are many single fathers who care for their children full time. On The Flip Side (Auset Ausar Productions $15.00) is a well-written novel by Essence Best Selling Author, Nikkea Smithers. You will be introduced to Tavares who desires to be a good father to his kids while facing obstacles from the mother of his children. He meets Danica who has a successful psychiatric practice and has her patients’ lives all figured out. But Danica enjoys a double life of making people pay for their indiscretion in the worst way. Danica and Tavares’s worlds clash and things get shaken up. You won’t want to miss out as the roles get reversed and lives are forever changed. I had an opportunity to interview Nikkea Smithers.
