Welcome. Meet August’s author of the
month, Keith Kareem Williams. This author is very new to me. I read my
first book penned by Keith called, Tourniquet and it was very intriguing. I was
drawn to this author for a number of reasons. Keith is a single father and not
just of 1 child but of 3. This was refreshing. The issues with parenthood alone
is a very hard task no matter who is parenting, but for a male to stand up and
take on the responsibility head on is like music to my ears. Our children are
lacking positive roles male models and Keith is no doubt the major influence in
his children’s lives, in his community of Brooklyn, New York, and beyond. For
the dedication he has for his children, the responsibility that he takes head
on without complaint, and the joy that I see that he has for his craft of
writing. Without further delay, let’s give a huge shout of welcome to, Keith
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? I really can’t say that I have a favorite author. My favorites change from book to book. I just enjoy creative, unique, well-written literature.
“I thought you were going home to satay with your sisters?” Gavin asked, shocked to find Angela back at his place, curled up like a kitten on the futon.
He’d just got home from work so tired that he almost thought it might be a dream. When she humped up, rushed to him at the door and hugged him, he knew it was real.
“I need to be here with your tonight,” she told him and squeezed him so tightly that she nearly smothered him.
“You know you can be here anytime you want. I’ll always be here for you,” he reassured her.
For the rest of the night, they lay in the bed together but didn’t exchanged words. The voices inside Gavin’s head had been silenced as her head lay on his chest and Angela didn’t have to worry about unwanted hands or eyes on her body. She was sage and he was sane, at least for the moment. Sleep didn’t come easily for either one of them. They both drifted in and out of dreamland in shifts, almost ask if they instinctively watched over one another. At any moment, Angela expected the police to knock on the door looking to put her in handcuffs for assaulting her stepfather and Gavin waited for his ghosts to begin to torment him as they usually did whenever it was quiet.
