Background Information

Detroit Author and CEO, Areina Jerran is destined to make a stir in the community with her literary talents. With the war in the Middle East and problems with kidnapping journalist overseas, author Areina Jerran ignored the headlines and packed her bags during Islam's Ramadan season of 2006 and traveled to Damascus, Syria for fifteen days to complete her second title. Without the prior knowledge of the Arabic language only guided by a moderate translator. Areina Jerran is the author of Sess Obsession (urban fiction) and also the CEO of a self-publishing company ReinChild Productions, inc. Being a non-conformist, she used her unusual tactics in creating "How To Escape The Black Woman Syndrome". How To Escape The Black Woman Syndrome, comes at a time when black people are not only treated with little to no dignity, but the minority community continues to make bad decisions based upon lifetime goals and basic family values. Black woman seem to have lost the view point of how to achieve more and are being feed more consumer friendly information than individuality based ideas. Areina Jerran claims to have been a statistic in the United States and realized that this was more of a problem than a solution to her agony. While writing the manuscript in Damascus, Syria Areina Jerran says that the essence of the foreign land helped her to realize the importance of the woman and embrace her nature. The manuscript was a plotted strategy that she contemplated, yet a random vision that came to her one day at her desk. While gathering the information for the book, she was led on a blind journey to a foreign without anyone to communicate with for fifteen days. Areina Jerran speaks about her how-to manual: "In the summer/fall of 2006 it was put onto my heart to write this manual. In writing there was not a script or format to go by and I definitely didn't spend hours trying out the concept; as I have done hundreds of times before. I simply began to write. When I realized what I was writing joy overcame me. After I began writing I realized that these were the exact steps that I had took to become who I am today." How To Escape the Black Woman Syndrome though is titled to one audience; the information it holds can be applied to any faith, gender, age or race. Areina Jerran has created this manual to enlighten a mass of people.

Additional Information

It is said the rules of fair play do not apply in love and war. “All's fair in love and war” - the classic saying taken from John Lyly's 'Euphues' seems to prove true even today as the story of Sessily Kiner, the central character of Sess Obsession, unfolds. Sess is a typical urban macho who loves sex. As a married man, there is nothing wrong in it. But the problem with him is that he indulges in extra-martial escapades. He does not feel any pain because this “extra” has been running in his family right from his father to his siblings, though his mother tried to unsuccessfully resist. So much so that he ends up having a love child from Angelique, one of his mistresses. All this leads to endless conflicts with his wife, Natia, who to escape from his daily torments, takes to sanity drugs. The novel begins with Natia trying to leave her husband in protest against his wayward living. But Sess, who has learned to harness his agitated wife in various ways, finally succeeds to bring her around cool. However the final blow happens when they are at a restaurant to have food. His mistress Tammy, who has been literally thrown out, plays spoilsport, leading to the married couple’s quiet time at the hotel abruptly coming to an end. Realizing that Sess would not change, Natia walks out on him and takes shelter under Scotty, a filthy rich guy with a dubious background. It is at this juncture Natia finds out that she is pregnant, carrying Sess’s child. When she returns to inform Sess about it, in spite of all the differences between them, the reality dawns on them that they care for each other. She relents to stay back for the sake of the child. This infuriates Scotty who arrives on the scene in search of Natia. He fires at Sess and in the process wounds not only Sess but also Natia. The police arrives only to shoot Scotty dead. Sess Obsession is a very good smut. The author offers characterization, pacing and sound structure as easily as she does titillation and arousal. She retains the lush tone of Victorian prose while streamlining it for modern readers. The narration often borders on erotic details, but what strikes most is the ultimate respect for love that remains sheltered within the institution of marriage. All that happens outside can be discarded at convenience but not what is destined for the man and the woman united in the bond of marriage. The story also highlights the victory over rift caused by sex jealousy. Tammy, wounded by the betrayal of Monroe, her childhood friend, forgets and forgives when she learns about the untimely death of Monroe’s twin brother. Hence the novel is an act of balancing two extremes: One of living a loose life caring two hoots for any morals and the other glorifying the virtues of love, friendship and forgiveness. Of course in the end the latter emerges as the ultimate winner.
