Stephanie D. Sanders is the proud owner of “Walk In Thought Productions”. She was born in Lakeland, Florida to the parents of Charles Sanders (deceased) and Barbara L. Roundtree. Her stepfather, Larry ‘Pops’ Roundtree, Sr is prominent in her life. She is an actor, singer, songwriter, and author who currently resides in Florida.
Who is Stephanie?
Stephanie is well educated. She graduated from Kathleen Senior High School in Lakeland, Florida. She holds an Associate of Science degree in Allied Health and a Bachelor of Administration degree in Mass Communications.
Stephanie started out singing, songwriting, acting, doing voice-overs and the like. She decided to delve into the literary world and become an author. That’s when her journey began with her own Limited Liability Corporation (LLC). “I am definitely hopeful that God will allow me to continue on this journey and develop my own platform in production from an entertainment standpoint. I look forward to motivational speaking, and creating my own television shows.”
One More Day
Recently, Stephanie released her three-pack combo of “One More Day”. “One More Day” is her recently released novel about the transitions in her life. The book’s description reads, “After several major transitions in her life, Stephanie felt that not only had she lost the possibility of having children after a surgery gone horribly wrong but also that her unique gifts and talents had fallen by the wayside, never to be picked up again. However, following a five-year hiatus, although her story and her zip code had changed, she discovered that her talents remained the same. Dormant as they may have been, she didn’t mind starting all over again.”
“In this heart-wrenching, yet, victorious story, Stephanie has opened a chapter in the book of her life and given us a glimpse of her testimony; the moment she received a new lease on life and resolved to never let it go. God gave her One More Day at life, love, salvation, and using her gifts. From that moment on, she decided to never take them for granted again. At the end of it all, she asks us the question, What will you do with your One More Day?”
The “One More Day” combo includes an audiobook. Stephanie included an audiobook to continue to spread the messages and stories in the book via audio listening. She is legally blind in one eye, since birth. She found a love for listening to audiobooks she’s not one to just sit and read a book. Having this version is so beneficial for others like herself as well as those who may be visually impaired but still, love literary work. Having your own version of the audiobook is a wonderful way to hear the deepest expressions of the stories that are told.
Stephanie the Actress
Stephane recently finished her role in two movies. She was in ‘Locked’ with Marquis Harris and ‘NUTZ’ with Tony Stinyard. She looks forward to branching out more and connecting with other filmmakers. She also wants to connect with the music community in Atlanta. “Truth be told, I would love to move back to Atlanta and take my career to a whole different level.” She said.
“I tell you God works in mysterious ways. Since being back at home, I have accomplished more within just a few years than I ever did living in L.A. Now, I am sure God still has more for me to do here, there, Atlanta and even NY but this has been a defining moment in my life to have now finished my first book, audiobook, CD, multiple Indie Films and I’m on track to complete my next contemporary gospel project and much more this year.”
