Taking female empowerment to the extreme

Novel takes place against a murderous and erotic backdrop

Female empowerment has become a predominant topic in today’s culture, with a growing a fascination of strong, independent women who use their intelligence and sex appeal to influence those around them. Brenda G. Wright’s debut novel, Angel: A Hustling Diva with a Twist, shows what happens when female empowerment turns deadly.

In this erotic novel, Angel, an independent Columbian assassin, uses her beauty and charm to seek vengeance on males who have wronged her in the past. Armed with sex appeal and heavy artillery, Angel is a strong, self-confident woman overcoming her rough childhood and fighting for her own personal justice.

“In reality, some things happen that are beyond our control,” author Wright said. “To actually see a female take charge for a change is unbelievable to me. We see action movies with men starring in them, but not too many females carry the artillery.”

Wright says she hopes her novel empowers women to take charge of their own lives. The action-packed, murderous plot provides an extreme example of the capabilities of women.
