Jacquelin Thomas, A Quiet Storm by Pat G’Orge-Walker

Jacquelin Thomas

Author Jacquelin Thomas dressed in nothing less than the latest designer fashions gracefully walks into a standing room only, Durham, North Carolina bookstore. She is accompanied by her husband Bernard and her son Jonathan and there to sign her latest offering, a fast-paced Bible-based adaptation of the Bible’s resident ‘blinded by love’ strongman, Samson; a modern-day pastor’s dance with earthly desires . . . and the faith that made him whole.

Guided by her need to always let God shine she has already wrapped her spiritual cloak of humility tightly about her even before she arrives at the podium. Those who know her well will attest that she will not wear or accept the title of Literary Diva willingly although her constantly increasing reader base expects it. Even with her vast list of bestselling romance, young adult, Women, and Christian fiction books still in print as well as movie adaptations, a number rivaled perhaps by author Donna Hill, Ms. (Quiet Storm) Thomas seems almost embarrassed by her success.

Before a standing-room-only audience in the Durham, North Carolina bookstore, Ms. Thomas begins to read an excerpt from “Samson.”

Pat G'Orge Walker

Pat G’Orge (pronounced Gee-or-jay) – Walker is in a league of her own. This accomplished Christian author and comedienne has an amazing mind and talent for turning her observations of church and black church life, in particular, into gems of sidesplitting humor. It is her own special gift from God that enables G’Orge-Walker to depict the often ridiculous antics of church folk. She does it without subverting the Good News or watering down the potency of its message.

Pat G’Orge-Walker has led a colorful life professionally, to say the least. She  is a former record industry veteran who has worked for several major labels including Epic, Def Jam, and Columbia. She also performed with the legendary 60’s girl group, Arlene Smith and the Chantels (“Maybe”) as well as with gospel groups.

In between writing books and spending time with her husband Rob in their Long Island, New York, home, Pat is busy touring the country performing her sold-out one-woman Sister Betty comedy show.

  1. Great article. I have to read some of her material. It’s a beautiful thing when people can handle success just as Jacqueline Thomas has. I look forward to reading more of your blogs. :o)

  2. Pat, thank you so much for this blog about (ever-fashionable) Ms. Jacquelin Thomas. You’ve described her so accurately that she can this in her bio! Her latest book, Samson, is really a story of triumph over not only situations but consequences. It is seldom that we find such talent/gifting combined with humility. We all await the next story from Ms. Quiet Storm. Continued blessings.

    • Jeanette, thank you for your comment. When first asked to blog for nubianlit.com I knew my first piece would be Jacquelin Thomas. That demure, yet strong nature combined with God-given talent and her in-your-face faith has always been one of her strong points. Recently, I attended the Faith & Fiction retreat (Kimberly Warren’s event) in Atlanta. Jacquelin could not attend but it didn’t mean she wasn’t missed. With all the “author elites” present, the one question repeated over and over was, “Where is Jacquelin Thomas?” When I tell you she was missed by the readers, believe me, she WAS MISSED by the readers 🙂

      I hope you won’t mind if I approach you and your ever expanding career for a Q&A for Nubianlit 😉
