Discover how 17 women came together from across the globe in the midst of a declared global pandemic to create a book that shares survival stories and teaches empowerment like never before!


Commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month and women everywhere, Author, Mom, Pastor, CEO and East. Louis native Dr. Larita Rice-Barnes has flamed the literary world with her latest collaboration book project, My Pink Stilettos.


This is her powerful story of overcoming and the harrowing tales of 17 other women from across the globe. When you read our stories you will laugh, you will cry, you will have to put the book down for a minute to gather yourself. You will be sure to find yourself while reading through the pages of our book.


You will be energized by survival stories, empowerment messages and learn real life how to factors that you can readily apply. We are a diverse group of women from 5 Continents. Africa, Europe, Asia, South America and North America. Each one of us bring our own unique style and flavor.


We have different ways of dressing. With the pandemic going on, these stories simply could no longer wait! They show that no matter your age, geography or situation, you have the power to heal, forgive, and fight for what you believe in! Through these stories, Rice-Barnes hopes that people will see the rich value in their own struggle. Who told you to stop telling your story? Testimonies don’t expire. No matter how ugly or old it is, tell it!


There’s real healing in that. We have accents and different styles of writing, but our messages are unified. Come and journey with us!
