Nicety was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. She began her love of writing in the third grade. Many teachers pushed her to expand her knowledge of words, teaching her how to put them together to make them flow like melted butter. During her teen years she put her creative writing on hold and had an affair with another, graphic design. It wasn't until college that she began writing again, taking advanced creative writing and English classes. One professor caught on to her gift. He began to encourage her to publish her work and share her literary talent with the world. Upon graduating from Kennedy King College in 2010 with an Associates in Arts, that's exactly what she did. She now has several shorts, novellas and full-length novels under her belt. All of her books have topped the charts of one or more Amazon Bestsellers Lists at one point in time. Her goal is to bring that accomplishment over to the New York Times Bestseller list as well. To date, Nicety's most honored award is receiving the 2013 AAMBC BREAK OUT AUTHOR OF THE YEAR. She has also been nominated for Best Erotica Novel 2014 by DJ GATSBY BOOK CLUB.

Live and Learn in Kenya in Second Life
Since January 2010 Live and Learn in Kenya NGO is also online in the Second Life virtual charity community – Nonprofit Commons. The managers of the Nonprofit Commons go through every detail of an organization’s registration form to assure itself that it really is a charitable non-profit organization and not a computer scam. LLK operates from a virtual office where people can come in and inform themselves about our work in Kenya, look at photos and, if an LLK member is present, hold a conversation. There are real people behind all of the so-called avatars, so real conversations are held – as well as meetings – either by typing your message or by speaking over a microphone. A child in Kenya – the orphan, Veronica has already been sponsored through a Second Life contact, which makes it all worthwhile.

This week will be a special episode dedicated to the greatest playwriter, William Shakespeare and his mysterious life.
The Playwright Romantic: William Shakespeare
Known as the greatest poet and playwrighter that ever lived,
William Shakespeare lived in United Kingdom full of wit.
Born on April 23, 1564, the date believed to be,
Most historians cite his life as a great mystery.
He lived in a large home with his older brothers and sisters
Where he initially found his golden, dramatic writing key.
At first glance a poet, yet expanding to plays,
Shakespeare wrote Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and Henry the 8th.
Because of his works and contributions to theater,
Shakespeare was nicknamed Bard of Avon and The Bard.
His plays filled with emotions, conflict, and love
His works have long captured the hearts of all doves.
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" or sonnet eighteen,
Describes the eternal beauty of his love, creating a beautiful scene.
It compares her long lasting beauty to a short summer day,
Allowing us to picture her gleaming in the sun,
Away from the rest of world's gloomy dark bay.
Unfortunately to the world of prose a light dimmed shut,
When Shakespeare left the world with a hint somewhat -
His death is cited as April 23rd in 1616,
Exactly the day of his birth from down within...
