Inspired by true events, 'Behind The Pulpit' is a revealing look at the life of a young girl, whose Dad was a Vietnam Veteran turned Preacher. Many soldiers returned from Vietnam with serious issues, and Elder Carlos Porter was no exception. Unable to control the vivid images of war, or the emptiness of being forgotten by his country, Porter controlled the one thing he felt he could, his family. From severe beatings, to monitoring the way food was chewed, Porter ruled with an iron fist. This book is the untold story of life with a Vietnam Dad, told from his 9-year-old daughter's point of view.

The book took her to many cities for book signings and readings. She was featured on WGHP FOX 8 for their “Meet the Author” segment. She has had speaking engagements at schools, focusing on topics of “bullies” and “being inspired”. These issues are tackled in her book. She is currently working on her next book.
