Award-winning author Trice Hickman will join our host for a candid interview about how she discovered her love for writing which led to starting her own publishing company. Breif bio: I grew up on the eastern coast of North Carolina; the middle child of two of the best parents on earth! I was a precocious kid, the one who always asked, “Why?” I loved reading books because they were the perfect escape from my small hometown. I’d meet interesting people and travel to exciting places, all without leaving the Michael Jackson (rest in peace) covered walls of my bedroom. During my undergraduate years at Winston-Salem State University, (Go RAMS!) I continued my love affair with books. I even fantasized about writing a novel, envisioning myself at the top of the New York Times Bestsellers List. But upon graduation, and with the next month’s rent looming, I put that dream on hold and chose a more practical route…getting a 9 to 5 to pay the bills!
