Read full description of the books The Secret Life of Lucy Bosman:It’s Gone With the Wind meets Incident in the Life of a Slave Girl. Lucy Bosman is a shrewd business woman in a day and time not too amenable to the dreams and desires of women - especially colored women. The widow of an ex-slave and well-educated, the mulatto woman had great plans to start over and make a life for herself when she left her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee and headed further South in the spring of 1860. Two years later, Lucy is planted firmly in Richmond, Virginia, running a successful business while passing as a white woman and avoiding the personal attentions and promises of love by plantation owner, Thomas Parker. She has managed to keep her identity a secret from the town and Thomas, but the looming Civil War threatens to change everything. In The Secret Life of Lucy Bosman, nothing is safe from the destruction of war and secrets. Not even the dreams and heart of a single mulatto woman.
Read information about the authorIt is not every day that an English Literature teacher finds their way to writing plays; in fact, you’d expect said teacher to venture into writing novels, which I have done. But I have been drawn to theatre like a bee to honey ever since I saw a dance rehearsal to Bill Wither’s “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone” at the local community college in my hometown of Stockton, CA in 1989. A homeless pre-teen at the time, my heart and soul screamed “home” when I witnessed creativity birthed on the stage that day, and I have never stopped dreaming of one day seeing my plays on the stage.
Today, I refer to myself as a socially conscious playwright in that much of my work revolves around issues that impact the quality of life of women and their families. As a military veteran, once a homeless youth, entrepreneur and now teacher, I have been witness to the power of storytelling whether it is through the pages of a book or on the stage; it can bring about healing. Over the past 10 years, I have created plays that have attempted to bring forth issues such as child molestation, poverty, domestic violence and mental illness to the stage because for me, the stage is the ultimate truth box. An audience pays to be confronted, consumed and then released by it.
I am a writer – a storyteller. I am an advocate for the often dazzling, blinding reality of truth.
