• Zenzi Hodge, The Never Snowy Christmas

    in Writing

    If you asked Zenzi Hodge what she wanted to be when she grew up, you would not have heard the word author; however, that is what she has been for most of her life, whether she wants to admit it or not. Zenzi, the daughter of teachers, has been writing most of her life, something she's done since she wrote her first poem about living on St. Thomas, published in a children's anthology when she was in elementary school. Her love for creative expression continued but she purely wrote poems for fun not, as she would say, for public consumption. In 2007, Zenzi began writing short stories for her son to share his family history with him. But her passion for writing for young children came in 2011 after she lost her grandfather & she took the words her son used to express his sadness to write a story titled, I Can't See the Morning.


    While the character in The Never Snowy Christmas is inspired by her son, much of the antics are of her own imagining as she STILL wishes for snow on St. Thomas.  Zenzi is an alumna of Florida A&M and Clark Atlanta Universities and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.  She resides on St. Thomas with her husband and son.


    Will it snow in St. Thomas?  That is the hope of a young boy living in the US Virgin Islands.  Each year at Christmas, he wishes for snow in the island paradise he calls home and this Christmas he intends to get it.  Join him on his quest and find out if this will be the year that he gets snow in St. Thomas or will he continue to ask, "Where's My Snow" for another holiday season.

A former dancer & founder of her dance studio, Music in Motion School of Higher Dance Education, Charlita goes all out for the children in her hometown of Fredericksted, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. An invitation to participate in a dance concert at Disney World allows 5 of her young students to participate in a televised Christmas event by ABC TV.

    Charlita’s career was molded from an early age. Her family moved from native St. Croix to New York City where she was able to take advantage of the available opportunities. From an early age she trained with the Children’s Ballet at Carnegie Hall & graduated from the NY High School of Performing Arts. Performing with the Dance Theatre of Harlem & the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre eventually led to the professional stages of the City Ballet of Honolulu & Ballet Florida. Her dream of becoming a professional ballerina had been realized.


    Much sought-after as a pageant coach, she's been credited with making winners in pageants such as Hal Jackson’s Talented Teen Competition, Miss St. Croix, Miss Cinderella, Miss Jabberwock, and others. She's participated for 3 consecutive years as a choreographer for the Miss British Virgin Islands Pageant. Many local & international winners owe their success to her expertise. She's also often asked to participate as a judge & has received many awards for her choreography & stage productions.

    Howard O. A. Jones, Virgin Island High School Student and Author

    in Writing

    Cardia, one of the many continents in the realm of Edafos, has remained relatively peaceful after 300 Years of War, a war to conquer the land started by the god-like beings called Divines. Through unimaginable pain and suffering, peace had been achieved, though for only a little more than a century. Now as corrupt Kings and religious struggles arise, one boy whose path was set to conquer Cardia rebels against the ideals of his people. He forges his way across the land, coming at odds with many trials. Will he and his band of friends change the fate of Edafos, as well as their own, or will they simply follow the path that was laid out for them?
