Married in the Nick of Nine Launch Party
Yesterday I introduced the world to my third child “Married in the Nick of Nine.” It’s been a long road from conception to birth. On Saturday, June 9 from 12:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m. at Adassa’s Island Café, there will be a “Coming Out” Party for my baby, and I look forward to seeing and meeting all of you. Check out “News and Events” for the details.
If you would have asked me a year ago if I’d be launching a book in 2012, I would have given you a raised brow. I love writing, but after my second self-published book, I had vowed to never write another one without agent representation or a possible book deal. You know what they say about saying ‘never.’ Once I had finished writing “Married in the Nick of Nine” and I got a look at the finished product; I was like a new mother—proud and overcome with love and joy, beaming about what God and I had created. Yes, God. I believe that all our talents come from above, and I believe we all have talents. Some of us have the good fortune to discover our gifts early in life and then others, like me, flounder a bit and then by chance happen upon what God has put us here on earth to do.
Growing up I remember wanting to be an airline stewardess. By the time I had reached high school, I wanted to be a journalist like Barbara Walters. After graduating from college, I dabbled in modeling and acting. It wasn’t until I had joined my church’s liturgical fine arts department that I realized I love writing plays and books, and I particularly enjoy the reactions I get from people who attend my plays and read my books. It’s a serious high. I love writing so much that I could write without being paid. What am I talking about; of course I can do that! I’ve been doing that for years now. Lol! And when I write, I lose track of time. I can start writing at six in the morning and the next thing I know it’s after midnight. I guess these are signs that writing is my passion.
What’s your passion? What can you do for free? What can you do for hours on end without clock watching? What gives you a high? Think about it! You never know, your passion, your purpose, could be right under your nose.
See you at the launch party!
