She has been a guest on programs such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, The Dr. Phil Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and Good Morning America. Goldie appeared in “Light Skinned Girls,” a documentary released by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and “Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now” on PBS. An avid runner, Goldie is the mother of three grown children and two grandchildren. She is, thus, convinced that God has a sense of humor.

Check out her website here, Facebook and Twitter. Paper Gods is in stores now. You can listen below to the interview.

Mayor Victoria Dobbs Overstreet is a Harvard-trained attorney and Spelman alum, married to a celebrated heart surgeon, mother to beautiful twin girls, and a political genius. When her mentor, ally, and friend Congressman Ezra Hawkins is gunned down in Ebenezer Baptist Church, Victoria finds a strange piece of origami–a “paper god”–tucked inside his Bible. These paper gods turn up again and again, always after someone is killed. Someone is terrorizing those who are close to Mayor Dobbs, and she can’t shake the feeling that the killer is close to her, too.
