about

After a violent honeymoon and an unexpected divorce, what's left? fear? second chances? bitterness?
    Their arguments built up to one perfect fight, one messed up honeymoon and something that played out more like a movie than real life. Stranded in Jamaica, Jamillah Warner found her way home. And spent years slaying nightmares and reclaiming dreams. 
    Hot Prayers Flow Like Fire is hope and pain woven into poetry, spoken word and story-in-verse. And if you choose to put on your big girl boots, take up your sword and fight your way back from a broken-hearted hell, then Hot Prayers is your soundtrack filled with inspirational stories, poems about love & surviving domestic violence, as well as inspirational poems about life. 
    Influenced by Nikki Giovanni’s “Ego Tripping” & Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman” Jamillah Warner is perhaps best known for her live performances as a spoken word artist. As seen and heard on the popular Atlanta radio station V-103, Uptown Comedy Club and Urban Grind, Lady J’s an award winning poet & spoken word artist, Atlanta Def Poet and domestic violence survivor.
    Born in the south, raised traveling the US, she writes for business and pleasure. To see her latest spoken word short film, visit HotPrayers.com.

Editorial Reviews

"Wow! This poetry is so raw and true. One of the best I've ever read (and I've read a lot). I feel that you will not only begin to heal yourself with this but help other women who are suffering too, to start healing." - Dianne Schwartz, Educating Against Domestic Violence - "You're like Maya Angelou. It's professional, epic, powerful." - Darryl Ogletree, Reborn - "It's almost like she's putting a melody together" - Charli Sims - "Why does your poetry sound like music?" - 7th Grader, Chestnut Log Middle - "I think all of us, especially women, just want someone who gets us. And you, my friend, get us. You know the way we feel when we're broken. You know how it feels when you meet a guy and fall in love. And you know how it feels to be lonely. What Mary J and Adele give women through music and song, you give it through writing. Women will feel empowered through your words." - Kendra Boyd -
