This month, Twice a Slave, a novel I wrote along with Randy Willis will be coming out in bookstores. I want to spend many months to come exploring and expounding on this work of fiction. When the son of a Cherokee slave determines to find his purpose and discover his identity, he becomes a slave a second time. This fictional account of the life of Joseph Willis is rooted in early American history and filled with drama: a forbidden romance, faith molded by tragedies, and the courage to forgive. A half-English/half-Cherokee slave changes the course of Louisiana history when a fresh wind blows across his heart.
This 80 second book trailer give you a preview of what Twice a Slave is all about. I hope you will join me on this inspiring journey where faith, forgiveness and American history collide to form a raw-boned, unforgettable epic.
