Who Am I?
A lone observer of life. Blessed by a wonderful creator that I begged, "Please help me understand!" What? Life! And as my life events unfolded, He observed me and when I was ready, in so many ways I can't even begin to list them, he said, "Here... this is what you asked me for - let's see what you do with it." No, those weren't His exact words, but it's what I feel he said to me before he blessed me with the ablity to write. He gave me something, and I just know he did, so that I could express so vividly what so many men and women as they lived their lives with crazy dramatic events revealing a manifestation good and bad. It was happening all around me. Because I asked why - I had no choice but to write about what I've seen. Surrounding me were so many variations of cultures, races, and personalities - mine included - a make-up of many.
Who am I? I am Mercedes Keyes, and my goal is to be known as an author of quality interracial literature. Words I pray that make us all go, hmmm. I hate that we HATE each other. I really do. The world has cultivated this ingrediant that is so opposite to the one Our Maker used to make us all ... Love.
While I write about love, it's surrounded by truth, events, contemporary and historical - things in life that others have written about - but not quite like me. I write my way - not with an English major in grammar - yes, mistakes a plenty - so I ask, where you find them forgive me - it is my hope, that the story grips you so - you'll let it slide.
I began writing this fact-fiction novel while in England and kept putting it on the back burner. Well, no more - it's time to put it out there, this is my current project to completion!
Saoirse surrounds the tragic historical events that took place during Oliver Cromwells reign. A man determined to rid the world, Ireland, England of all those might be Irish. Men, women and children. My leading man, Maximilian Euan O'Shaunessey finds himself smack dab in the center - a slave bundled and shipped off to live among others on the Robinson Tobacco plantion where he swore to escape from to be free - or die in the trying.
It's been a long time coming, but I think the time is now that you'll be able to catch me on YouTube - letting you know what's next.
Youtubin' about what? Many things, to start off, my favorite movies and videos found there featuring themes surrounding what I write. Such as what I've featured above, "Belle" I cannot even begin to say how many times I've watched it already. And then there will be the ones I will do, current events, my current projects, things on my mind - and up and coming events concerning me, MKeyes. Free bird that I am, it's time for me to start flying. Testing out my wings and seeing where I might land. I hope and pray, that it's all good!
This where you wanna go for your website - bookcover - custom characters for whatever you need.
Yes, it's been a long time in coming, but it's my second part plan for ASPI - to assist any author / blogger - especially a first timer to get what is needed to get their precious work published. So, ASPI will be ready to roll with an assortment of plans, tubes, ready-sets and templates at your disposal and no concerns over other authors having your exact same model.
