When I was a seven-year old kid, I would fantasize about someday becoming a king. Naturally, I had no real concept of what it meant to become a king. But it seemed as though kings and queens, along with princes and princesses, were always held in such high regard in every single fairy tale. So why not aspire to become a king myself?
Next up was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a powerful orator and well respected by people all across the world. Even to this day, Dr. King’s legacy has left a major impact throughout the world. And the world still holds him in high regard.
This year, I made a declaration that my writing would take me to an entirely new level. All the way to the top! On Monday, January 16th the Queen of Media, Wendy Williams, opened her show with a rave review for my debut novel My Turn, which is the first book in a psychological thriller trilogy. As I sat on the edge of my pea green couch, tears flooded my eyes. I just couldn’t believe that she was talking about something that had materialized from my mind. It was hands down the most exhilarating experience I’ve had so far this year.
I share this with you today as the self-proclaimed Page-turner Prince. No one could have told me five years ago that I would be leaving my footprint on the world with my storytelling. The moral to all of this… If you want it, go get it. Become the king, queen, prince or princess that you are destined to be. Bring the Royal Thunder!
