Applying what he has dubbed as fact-based fiction, Christopher borrows from headline news stories and crafts a spellbinding tale that makes the reader uncomfortably comfortable with the characters. In the Mick Hart Mysteries, the reader gets more than a romance-mystery of whodunit- they also get a why.From the AuthorI believe in giving credit where credit is due. The inspiration of this book was a collaborative effort. The spoken word poem Thickness by Jill Scott was the inspiration for the Sapphire character of Marys Little Lamb. When artist David Patterson created a rework of his original artwork also titled Thickness, into the Butta Phat book cover it gave me the vision of Sapphire. It was the poetic words of Ladi and Valerie Repress that gave Sapphire her voice. The twist to Sapphires character is courtesy of the members of the F.A.R. Book club.Though I knew all along that I would write a sequel to All About Mary, the total content of the story wasnt developed. News headlines and the entertainment media stories and life influenced the rest of the story.I wrote this novella with the young generation in mind as well as the gap of parents who are not in touch with their children. This novella is about family. There is no perfect family in this book, but they all have the potential to be better. I thank God and everyone for their gift and influence toward this novella. Be blessed, and then a blessing.About the AuthorLawrence Christopher is a fiction author and writer of life stories and mysteries.
