It’s hard to believe it’s November again. We are in what I call “deep fall.” To me this means there’s no turning back from harsh winds and cold weather. Any warm day that comes our way is a gift, an unexpected one. Happy November to you! This month ushers in my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is a time of celebration.
Another celebration is my book, Cobalt Chronicles will be released on February 1, 2020, and can be pre-ordered on Amazon now. This story celebrates the strength of women in Africa. They have survived so much – the evil reign of King Leopold, rampant sexual exploitation, and the bizarre excesses and tyranny of Mobutu.
Esynama, a lovable and vibrant young girl, is the main character of the novel. She is athletic and industrious. Esy, which is her shortened name, faces hardships and obstacles that would crush most of us. She pushes ahead to rise above the jungle of exploitation, the brutality of misogynists, and the jealous rage of another women. Much of her early life was learning what to cling to and what to throw away. Once she masters that dilemma, she acquires the elusive quality of resilience. What might have been a shattered life transcends into a whole new world of freedom. Her persistence advances not only her dreams but helps the next generation succeed with theirs.
I fondly appreciate your interest in my life and in my books.
God Bless you all!
