Paul Lisnek Interview
Binx, everybody knows her. She is a daughter, niece, sister, cousin, friend, neighbor, student, co-worker. Young, vulnerable, beautiful, smart, and trapped by that thing called fear. In Black Beans 'n Rice, the author takes you on a fast-paced reading journey from pain to peace with all the ups, downs, twists, and turns in between. It's just under 300 pages, but the pages turn fast as you sense every fear when her abuser's name is mentioned, every lump in the throat when the phone ring as you scream, "Binx, don't answer it." Only relaxing when you learned it wasn't "him" this time. You will hate those who mistreat her and worship the real friends she has. You'll cry with her, and in the end, you are right there smiling when she finally learns to trust again, and allows herself to be loved. Binx finds happiness while teaching the world how to forgive.

WGN9 Midday News Interviews author Dena Tyson
In Black Beans N' Rice, Ms. Tyson describes her successful
emergence from an abusive relationship. The main character,
Bianca, is hard working, self-reliant and ashamed. Although the
physical and emotional scars from her past left her feeling
ashamed, she still continued to date. Her account reveals an
invaluable lesson. An abusive relationship, nor any part of your
past, will reduce your value. True triumph!!
