My Eastern Michigan Univ. Magazine Alumni Feature


Greetings! Thanks for stopping by.  

I hope all is well. Me? I'm steady.

When Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School was released, my life changed. The book began trending on BarnesandNoble.com and we were second in the children's genre (to the latest Wimpy Kid book). I was beyond excited and taking naps instead of sleeping at night.  During the time we were trending so high, Dr. Sue Martin, President of Eastern Michigan University was notified.  Later, I was contacted to by the Media Relations department to do a Press Release.

On a hot summer day, I recall walking on campus and sitting down to share my story with Debra Johnson. Debra, an excellent writer and question-asking expert, made me feel very comfortable. A few days later, I was back on campus and doing a photo shoot. Needless to say, I was so excited when the Press Release was made public. 

A few months ago I was contacted by Debra. She informed me that they were considering running my story in the Spring 2013 edition of Eastern.  The Eastern is the magazine of Eastern Michigan University.  Yes, I was amazed at the thought of being selected to for the magazine.

On 05 April 2013, I received an email from Debra. She told me that she had some copies of the Eastern for me, and I could come to campus and pick them up when I had an opportunity.  Immediately, I made the trip to pick up the magazine.

Upon having the Eastern in my hand, I almost did not want to open it. No, I was not afraid. Honestly, I could not help but think about my previous history as a student at EMU. I thought about my struggles and accomplishments on that campus.  I had regrets and redemption on my brain.  As I opened the magazine and found my article in the Alumni News section, I could not help but smile.  A moment later, I was looking at a picture from the photo shoot I did and reflecting on how much following my writing dreams has done for my life and others. 

Here are pictures of the magazine:
