It Started at Goree Island in Senegal, West Africa~
When I started writing the Grace in Africa historical fiction trilogy, people asked me: “Why write about slavery? Why dredge up that painful past and stir up old anger and guilt?”
Because ignoring the past isn’t the same as laying it to rest.
If you have been reading my blog for long, you know that The Call of Zulina, Book 1 of my Grace in Africa historical fiction trilogy, came out last year and that Book 2, The Voyage of Promise, is due to hit the shelves in just a couple of weeks.
What you may not know is that the trilogy now has its own site, with articles coming regularly and room for you to chime in with whatever you might have to say. Comment about the thoughts I express… about the books… about other aspects of slavery then and now that I haven’t considered, but should!
