Inaugural Book

Mama Mae Cover.jpg



As an editor, I have read plenty of literature — both academic and non-academic — but none quite like Mama Mae. This piece left me on the edge of my seat, wanting more at the end of each chapter. Through an autobiographical account, Mama Mae teaches a hard lesson of love and forgiveness that is sure to penetrate the hearts of every reader!

"Congratulations to Catherine G. (Parr) Turner (BSAcc 1985) who just published her first book, "Mama Mae." Turner spent the majority of her life in Colorado Springs and now resides in Maryland with her family, where she is actively involved in her church, the military community, and her entrepreneurial passions surrounding financial literacy empowerment.  More information about "Mama Mae" can be found on Turner's Website."

Author Bio:


Catherine Gail Turner is a native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she fondly spent the majority of her life. She and her husband Lewis, along with their two adult children, have lived in Maryland where she is actively involved in her church, the military community, and her entrepreneurial passions surrounding financial literacy empowerment. For years, and even decades, Catherine longed to write about growing up on the Southside of Colorado Springs as an adopted African American child.  And finally, by God’s intervention, Mama Mae, her life-long literary dream and work has finally been birthed into fruition.  Catherine invites you to come take a journey with her as she provides a warm, heartfelt story of how to love the unlovable. Because only when we learn how to do “the best” will we be able to understand the power of love and forgiveness when surrounded by those who are only capable of doing “their best”.
