Join us for a discussion aobut urban fiction, real life, writing, and publishing with the CEO of Queen Midas Books -- Julia Press Simmons. A woman who doesn't even have the word impossible in her vocabulary! Julia writes on her webpage @ Queen Midas Books: “I've spun tales for as long as I can remember—big ol' fat tales from my imagination. I was twelve years old when I began to write them down. Four years later, a couple of months after the birth of my son, I recognized my gift for what is was. Deep in the bowels of postpartum depression, I penned my first poem entitled “Suicide.” I poured all of my hurt into verse, and when I was done, the pain was gone. Since then I’ve received awards for my poetry, and I’ve had plays staged in Tennessee and New York, but nothing can compare to the overwhelming joy of “Strawberry Mansion,” my very first novel and now my second novel BEGONIA BROWN the second in my series titled A PHILADELPHIA STORY. Words cannot express how grateful I am to everyone who has read it thus far, and for those who will read it in the future. Thank you all for helping to make my dreams come true!” http://www.gueenmidasbooks.com
