A Bit About Me

me and dad terri


Hello, thanks for stopping by. I’m Tekoa Manning. I’m an author, active blogger, wife, mother, and lover of books. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time with family, painting, researching Adonai’s Word and cooking.

I am the author of two novels, Walter the Homeless Man and Polishing Jade. Both books are available in Kindle, Paper, and audio. 

Polishing Jade is a book for anyone who has ever suffered abuse. Jade Gentry is a young girl whose past will not control her future even if it cost her everything.  Jade was chosen as distinguished favorite from the NYC Big Book award for women’s fiction in 2020. Let me know if Polishing Jade blesses you. 


Walter the Homeless Man is fast-paced with cliffhangers and suspense. Check out over 35 reviews on Amazon. Here’s one:

“It didn’t take long to become engrossed in the story of Walter and the other characters in this book. I found myself relating to all of them in different ways. When a book can speak to its reader that adeptly, it is a MUST read! Life can be complicated and hard, but finding purpose in the midst of those trials is the door to hope. Not only was the book entertaining, but it was therapeutic as well. It ministered to my heart deeply, and I know that many more need to get their hands on this book and experience its raw vulnerability. It’s not a short book, but finished it in a couple of days simply because I could not put it down.”

Walter Cover Final

 I write inspirational teaching books as well as fiction,.  My latest release, The Spirit of Leviathan, Jezebel, and Athaliah, is ideal for book clubs and study groups. Each chapter closes with a question review page that causes great personal introspection. Check out my Shop tab under the menu to order from me or the link that takes you to Amazon. If you are not an Amazon fan, most of my books can be ordered online from Barnes and Nobel, or I will ship you as many as you like.
