"I consider myself and anyone else aware of her to be pretty lucky already as this author has a pretty powerful perspective and is more than capable of articulating her experiences and thought processes as it relates to the cultural upbringing of the African American experience. Her name is Yecheilyah Ysrayl."
Dottie Daniels, Author of the Zombie Apocalyptic Thriller, "Affliction"
Stella: Book One
"This trilogy hit the nail on the head and painted vivid pictures of what it meant to be black during the time of slavery. It also introduces an aspect many of us are not exposed to especially when one is mixed and is faced with the hard choice of choosing which “side” you will let the world see and how this benefits you and in the long run how it affects you as a person and your family. The character Stella is a strong woman faced with hard choices and carries burdens that we cannot fathom."

Stella: book two
"If I had the power, I would put this book in the hands of every middle school child in America and let them truly understand what it means to be beyond the colored line. The thing is, the literary classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird and Huck Finn definitely bring up the issues of race, but they're incredibly separated from what it's portrayed as in today's world."
Anna Kopp, Author of The Lifeblood Series, Rise of the Chosen Ones
stella: book three
" Like the first book, Ysrayl works her magic of putting the reader into her characters’ minds to witness history through their emotions and perspectives. At one point in the story, the friends are trapped in their vehicle as it’s mobbed by a pack of violent racists. My heart was literally pounding at this point. I was horrified that anyone had to experience such ugly cruelty."
