All of us goes through an identity crisis whether it’s with our family, job, or church. We’re all on a journey to know ourselves better. We make good or bad choices that will affect our lives and those we have a relationship with. How do we embrace this crisis that determines the outcome of our lives? All of us show two faces on the job, with our family, in our church, etc. The goal is to be constant in all areas of our lives.
The story evolves around a Christian man name Christopher Watkins who is a Criminal Defense Lawyer, a faithful husband, a loving father, going through an identity crisis. He was reared by adopted parents who raised him in their beliefs and values. One day a football injury with his son begin a journey of unveiling family secrets that eventually lead to the truth of who he really is. In the process of change, will Christopher Watkins embrace the truth, or will it destroy him?
Life is hard and there are no fairytale stories… that may be the reason why I love to create and write stories of people and their experiences. I want people to read my stories to feel and identify themselves with the characters. The only way a person can change is that they must identify with something that shows them they can change too. There is no need to be afraid but embrace the change because it has been done before. My books embrace my experiences of places I’ve traveled and the people I’ve met. I love the creativity of writing. It allows the story to lead me because writing can’t be forced, it must flow.
I enjoy reading and most of the books I’ve read were a fairytale and not real. But there were some that touched my heart, or I can really identify with. Today, we are dealing with issues that we don’t talk about because of the white elephant in the room. Issues like domestic violence, drug addiction, rape, etc. because it’s uncomfortable and shameful. My book allows you to see the influences of the lust of the eyes and the flesh, and pride of life in my characters and the effects. The reader should read my book because it is real and human. Acts like a mirror that allows you to feel and see yourself. It brings you face to face with your real self. Every book has a message for the reader. I believe it is a good read and everyone can experience something from it.
