Passion always saw the good in people. Even if individuals were bad to the bone, she would look beyond their misdeeds. Raised in a household where the focus was more on spirituality, she would always hear her parents say, "There is good and bad in everyone. In some cases, the good never developed, so the bad took over that person's life. One must always look deep into an individual's heart and try to bring out that good."

Therefore, when she started to correspond with an inmate and then fell in love with him, she believed she was practicing what her parents were advocating.

However, she was about to be drawn into a network of lies, deceit, and fraud, and after his release from prison, disturbing events would leave her asking, "Was he a good for nothing or the devil's spawn?"

Ever since she could remember, Passion's dream was to be a missionary. She wanted to nurture and save souls. Her caring, listening, and communicating skills would have made her the ideal celebrant. She considered joining the Peace Corps but decided to stay close to home, because in her community, there were plenty of folks who needed divine intervention.

Every weekend, she would lecture to the heathens and lost souls. Yet, she possessed another great gift: Baking. When it came to her pies, cakes, tarts, and cookies, she was an amazing artisan. For over twenty years, she worked as a pastry chef at the popular Gourmet Treats in Upper Manhattan, New York.
