About the Book

If you want excitement, then read this book! This story is a rollercoaster ride of unbelievable, and sometimes terrifying events that makes your hair stand up on the back of your neck. The characters are colorful, and some are even crazy! It's hard to believe, but this is a real life story. It is filled with sheer amazement and awe. So, hold on to your seat as the story begins. It starts out with a scary encounter. This Black couple, minding their own business, is suddenly being robbed by two skinheads, or so they thought. Out of nowhere, they found themselves being thrown against their car while getting gas in this Black-free town on Long Island, New York. They were petrified! They thought surely their lives would be wiped out because these radicals had guns! But they survive....only to end up in police custody; instead of the gun-toting thugs who accosted them. Once at the precinct, the couple is taken in two separate rooms to be interrogated to get to the bottom of what really happened. The cops wanted to know what they were doing in this town, at night, getting gas, as though it was actually illegal. The woman doesn't realize it, but her boyfriend is in the other room spilling his guts to the cops about a crime not in question. Why would he do this? What was his motive? Unbeknownst to her, he wants her to be thrown in jail because he, himself, would certainly be kept at the precinct that night because he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. However, her life will be changed from this day forward for the rest of her life! After being questioned; and their stories differed, they both are arrested! Could this be a dream, she thought? All of this fear mounted up inside of her as they were fingerprinted and mug-shot. The woman is thinking to herself, "How did I end up in this position?" I was only getting gas! In the long run, the boyfriend ends up dead. Was it karma being played out for the way he betrayed her?
Sometime later, AIDS became a factor in all of this. Did the boyfriend know he was infected with HIV and didn't tell her? Was there a dark side of him she had not detected? Once incarcerated, she ponders all these things. That's when she knew she needed to be tested to find out. She feels confident though, that her test result will be Negative! But there was the possibility of a different outcome. What if the result came back Positive? Was AIDS the real reason why her boyfriend's life ended so soon? The hands of the clock ticked slowly as she waited....then the doctor entered the room with her test results. This is her story! "A Story Worth Telling".................

About the Author

About The Author

Ten (10) years after the release of "A Story Worth Telling," (2004); a lot of new developments have taken place in the life of this author. Now, she feels compelled to share this aspect of her life as well; to finish telling her story. Actually, this is a combination of two books. While the facts of the original story remain the same; the reconstruction of them makes the reader feel as though a new story is being told. In this book, the author cleverly weaves the storyline through a series of life-events that make every character, as well as every individual chapter mysterious; filled with suspense as the plots unfold. This time around, the author is sharing more details and events previously omitted in the original book. She wants the reader to vicariously live some of the horrific experiences she lived through - giving greater appreciation of her survival, and overall miracle. And she does so with dignity, class, and pride. This book is absolutely intriguing! It's a page-turner, with spine-tingling new episodes that keep your fingers turning page after page in anticipation of how all the plots play out. And there are many! Some of the new characters are beyond comprehension - some are flat out crazy!
Names have been changed throughout the story to protect the privacy of the real characters.
Like the original story, the author's purpose in re-releasing this book is to provoke thought!
