God Is A Woman is a short work of fiction. This psycho-drama, love story, begs to answer the question, “What happens to the memories of prisoners who have been locked away for decades?” It takes its name from an Ariana Grande song of the same title, and is based on one of the author’s earlier works that predates the lyrics to God Is A Woman, but is of a similar theme.
