Q: WHO ARE YOU? You are one of a kind! Tell us a little about you and what it is you do on a personal level when you’re not dreaming up ways to promote the members?

A: I am a wife, a mom, a dog lover (although I have everything but cats in our home), a daughter, a sister and a really good friend! In my spare time (what spare time, who am I kidding?) Well, in the spare time I wish I had, I envision all the great books I could write to right the many wrongs of this world. Oh, and I love reality TV!

Q: I do remember those blog posts you used to put out at least once a week. There was always a lesson. Tell me, where were you born and do you live there now?

A: I was born in Texas but raised in Louisiana!

Q: I’m amazed at all that you do and how much time you commit to the club. Most often, you do act just like a REAL-LIFE wonder woman! How do you do it?

A: Shirley, there is a quote on my blog site (www.BooksByNonnie.wordpress.com) that reads: “As a child no one ever told me I couldn’t, therefore, in all things I THINK I CAN!” I truly believe that I can do everything and anything I set my mind to doing. When I first started on this writing journey, one of my very first blog posts was about making a name for myself…and that I have. Although it might be true that we all have limitations, I guess I haven’t run into mine yet. I do this, because somebody has to. There was a great need to be filled and so I took on the challenge. RRBC is what we have to show for all that effort and it’s also proof, that if you envision it, you can be it!

Q: Now that was an Amazing answer. Are there any new releases in the works?

A: Oh, yes! This is the year of Nonnie, so get ready world! And don’t worry you guys, I’m really going to put that Fitness Guide out, just for you all!

Q: Last but not least, when are you going to invite us over?
A: Never, there are just too many of you!
This has been fun! Thanks for having me, Shirl!

ME: Oh drat!!

THIRD STOP ON THE BLOG TOUR – INTRODUCING SHIRLEY HARRIS-SLAUGHTER

Hello My Friends!

 

This blog tour is basically about me introducing myself to all of you and what motivated me to write.

 

KPCPhotos_0022

 

My name is Shirley Harris-Slaughter.  I was born in the great state of Michigan and raised in the Charter Township of Royal Oak. I spent most of my time dreaming of the day when I could get out and start my life elsewhere. Then I discovered we were a historical community founded by a runaway slave on the “underground railroad.” I began to appreciate my roots. I discovered all this history way before ever thinking about writing.

My mother was a gifted poet and writer of children’s stories. She also was a great speaker. So what in the world could I contribute to this family? My parents were activists in the community and I watched them not realizing they were shaping me. I became a community activist before I started to write and I developed an appreciation for historical places and buildings which led me to try and save our local train station. I wrote a thesis on The Implementation of the Most Comprehensive Approach to Restoring the Michigan Central Depot. This project brought lots of attention and publicity to this neglected historical site.

All of this led me to try and capture the history of our Catholic Community which is now gone. So I wrote about my experience growing up in this environment. I titled the book, Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community. The title kind of stuck although my intention was to change it. This book had been gathering steam in my head for a long time before I actually set down to write. I felt that our history was gone because the church has merged and the school was razed after sitting empty for years and becoming an eyesore. I was invited to speak about this to the Fred Hart Williams Geneological Society affiliated with the Detroit Public Library’s Burton Historical Collections. Mark Bowden tagged the book a Narrative History. They asked me to speak to them because they never had history told in narrative form before. Geneology is normally written in a chronological order.

This history is who I am.

I’m going to stop right here and allow you to get the rest of the story.

 

About The Book…

Severing ties with publisher iUniverse left me with some leftover hardcover limited edition copies. Once they are gone, that is it.
