2011 Hollywood Book Festival Contest Judge
From the Author
I am proud to announce that Homecoming received Honorable Mention at the 2011 Hollywood Book Festival. I conceived Osguards when I was young traveling to Jacksonville North Carolina for a family reunion. There I met relatives I never knew I had from all parts of the country. The reunion was held on land that was the plantation my forefathers and mothers worked. More spectacular, we were celebrating being a family on that very land. It was so surreal and fascinating at the same time. I took that feeling and created the Osguards. Back then, I was fascinated with science fiction, so I placed my characters in a science fiction setting. Like I stated before, I would play these stories in my head when I was alone during the day and had nothing to do. I first put these characters down on paper in my high school creative writing class. Osguards were a family discovering their rich history and the awesome responsibility that history brought them. The characters, I created in high school stayed with me until one day, in 2000, I decided to expand those short stories into a novel. I wrote Homecoming and received some glowing support and calls for more adventures with the Osguards. I also found I had more to write. Therefore, I continued the series with Revelations, Armageddon and Revenge. In summary, my life experience, my family and friends as well as the need to tell a story with positive protagonist inspired me to write.
