A father of six, Derrick Watson is a family man, an educator, and a good time all balled up into one package. His comedy style is very laid back and comfortable. On stage you would think that he is in his living room talking to a bunch of his friends. Derrick is not the ordinary cookie-cutter comedian. He has skillfully combined business with ministry by making sure that God's ministry is his only business. It's not about fortune or fame, it's strictly about the God he serves. When you see Derrick you will seldom find him without his wife, Rose, 2 sons, Malachi and Elijah, and 4 daughters, Deana, Brooklyn, Chloe and Samantha. Whether it's a church event, fundraiser, street fair, concert, or dinner, if you see Derrick, you get the whole clan. "This is a family ministry, I want my children to see daddy ministering the good news of Jesus Christ. If I was a preacher, people wouldn't bat an eye when they see my clan but because I am a comedian people feel as if I need to leave my family home. Not so. Ministry is Ministry. If I were to make you shout or I make you laugh, my family, especially my children, need to see that ministry comes in many forms. I want to instill in them that ministry is for all who want and need it." Derrick's also the Founder and President of Victorious Production, a theatre ministry that produces original plays throughout the year.
You'll definitely want to tune in Thursday, May 21st at 6pm EST! New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Ann Aguirre, joins me to discuss her latest novel, The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things!

Sage Czinski is trying really hard to be perfect. If she manages it, people won't peer beyond the surface, or ask hard questions about her past. She's learned to substitute causes for relationships, and it's working just fine . . . until Shane Cavendish strolls into her math class. He's a little antisocial, a lot beautiful, and everything she never knew she always wanted.
Shane Cavendish just wants to be left alone to play guitar and work on his music. He's got heartbreak and loneliness in his rearview mirror, and this new school represents his last chance. He doesn't expect to be happy; he only wants to graduate and move on. He never counted on a girl like Sage.
But love doesn't mend all broken things, and sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together again. . . .
NATO SUMMIT...Notable Authors Together Optimize!
Sooo, you've written a book, YEAH, you're 10% finished/done, NOT SO...NOW 90% of your time and effort in is the PR/Marketing of YOUR BOOK. Now it begins, the search for an agent (unless you've self-published) and the taunting task of writing a QUERY LETTER.
This advice from an agent. "I never take on a first novel unless it is complete." What editor would be willing to buy partial fiction manuscripts. Finished manuscripts involve less risk.
Ze QUERY LETTER...Authors remember that books ARE jugded by their COVERS.
No quotes...no problem...etc.
One unique thing...etc.
Octogenarians on the move...etc.

Dr. Watson has also been a guest on the Rhonda Sciortino radio show Crack the Code and the Detroit Area Agency on Aging Senior Solutions Radio Show.

Collective Voices: Wisdom of our Lesbian Elders is her first independent film. Dr. Watson states that “whether it’s in my writing, art or film I have a deep need to recollect traditions and generational legacy, this perhaps comes from listening to stories from my elders specifically, African American women sitting, laughing, talking on porch steps or around the kitchen table.”
