Author credits faith and family support for success
(BLACK PR WIRE) –NEWARK, NJ, - When Marc Curtis Little began his research for a novel about the presidency of Barack Obama in 2009 he was told by many people that it wouldn’t be a popular book. Six years later, Little’s After Obama is a winner for best book in the African American category and for first runner-up in the Christian Fiction category from the Next Generation Indie Book Awards for the fictional tale centered on a conspiracy that involved a third term for President Obama.
“The laughs were loud and derisive about the title, and they were quite demeaning,” said Little, who has written four novels in the past six years. He spoke at the Harvard Club in New York City. “I had an idea that the book might be a winner when I got criticized by both Democrats and Republicans. Thank God that my wife encouraged me every step of the way and invested her time and energy to make it happen.”
Little, a native of Newark, New Jersey, was a public relations counselor and media personality for more than 30 years before he embarked on a writing career at age 56. Now close to 64, Little is riding a wave of success as an independently published author.
“As I have done since I surrendered myself to the will of God in 2001, I place faith in front of anything that I attempt to do in my life. I’ve had a number of down times, but the positive experiences watered down all of the negativity. This recognition for After Obama will allow me to continue to insert spirituality into all of my future work, as I have done with the previous ones.”
