Excerpt – Sins of the Father

There hasn’t been a time I can remember where she wasn’t sick or in pain. As she grew older, her body seemed to take on the shape of a penguin, her back arched, knees bent, and her hands flopped over at the wrists angled towards the floor. Father had to be my rock, since mother couldn’t tend to me the way she used to; her body no longer allowing her to hold or caress me.

I remember the days when she used to cry, her eyes begging me to understand how much she longed to touch me, to place her hand on my face to feel its texture, to smooth her fingers through my hair to braid it.

She couldn’t help me with prom, couldn’t even hold a camera to take a picture. Mother couldn’t even dress herself, the task daunting as her fingers barely moved anymore.

Her arms were frail but littered with little lumps from the nodules underneath her skin. She barely talked or went out into the sun due to the inflammation of her glands in eyes and mouth.

Most often she ate through a straw and even when that became too much, was given an IV drip to keep her fluids up. Father or I applied her eye drops thrice a day to ease the dryness in her eyes.

As I opened the fridge taking out a pack of chicken cutlets, I thought of how important my father has been for both of us. He has attended every ballet recital, spelling bee, soccer event, tennis tournament, acceptance speech, graduation…any monumental element in my life, since mother could not.

And on top of all the excruciating childhood memorials, he still made time to work sixty hours a week, and attend every wellness care, chiropractic and therapeutic doctors visit with mother.

He still made time to help with her daily routine. When the part time nurse we hired needed to leave early or take an extra day off, father would be there to take over. He never let me miss a class, seeing my friends, or school event to care for mother.

It was the guilt that kept me home instead of going to UCLA in California like I wanted. It was the thought of not giving back to the people who cared for me so deeply that kept me home, attending the local Georgetown University so that I could help. 

I got a part time job at Stella’s boutique between Wisconsin Ave and M Street, father’s position in the bank being influential in getting the job.

I was able to have lunch with him sometimes since our jobs were so close, attend my classes, complete the household chores, hang out, work, and be there for my parents. It’s the least I could do, since father gave his life basically, for my mother and me.

It was because of this dedication to our life and family, that when the pounding on the door interrupted my meal preparation, when the police stormed in with big bold letters SWAT on their back, helmets on their heads, guns in their arms pointing here, there, everywhere, that the reality of who and what my father really was didn’t seem plausible.

I denied everything they said. All the accusations were wrong. My father was a sweet, humble, hard working, brilliant, loving husband and father. My father was not a rapist, neither was he a narcissist. He definitely wasn’t a killer, their killer…The Potomac Creek Killer.

Follow the Tour!

In light of a family passing i will be taking the next few days to be with Family in our time of need. Therefore i will not be posting. This weekend was supposed to be dedicated to promoting my upcoming Blog Tour for my novel Sins of the Father slated for release on 6/15/13. The tour will begin on 6/10/13 and end 6/30/13.

Feel Free to follow the tour at your leisure....Until we meet again....
Welcome to DWED’s main event for the month of May. This month we will be focusing on the phenomenon that is Harry Potter and his journey on discovering the world of wizards and witch craft.

Like Many I was a new fan of the series only after seeing one of its top grossing films while aired in the theater. The one that won me over was “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”

It was then I found myself enthralled in the world created by J. K. Rowling, as many others before me. So I have decided, though it may be a little late to some, to embark on my own Journey of Harry Potter, bringing his wealth of adventure to the blog, and taking an in-depth stroll through the books, the movies, the characters and their acting counterparts.

I hope you enjoy this month’s theme. Please know that while Harry Potter Books were slated for adolescent view, there is a child at heart in all of us, and there is no age limit to the excitement of brilliant craftsmanship from the world which J. K Rowling created. After all she is an adult, and had she not had such a vast imagination the world would not know this Harry Potter, nor would they know how one can turn an old myth of magic into a stunning world of imagery.

Please stay tuned to DWED’s Blog throughout the Month of May for postings on this exclusive adventure. And do not hesitate to check our Contest page for an exclusive giveaway that would definitely entice the magic within you.


We are redecorating here at DWED! Stay tuned! We are getting a new look and new feel!

"I think this magazine will be one of the best gifts 2011 has given humanity and I’m absolutely serious about this. I hope you will check it out. When I did that, I clicked immediately on the subscription button and signed myself up. Now for those of you who know me, you will know this is significant because I have a very strict rule about not purchasing anything over the internet." —TammiHartung, author of Homegrown Herbs

“. . . I realized that this was a periodical loathe to box itself in or stoop to cliché. The topics would be familiar but the twists and turns would be unique because the human experience is unique."—Grace Peterson, "Gardening with Grace" blog                                                                                      

"Greenwoman is a fresh and hip magazine bringing the spirit of gardening to the forefront . . . It is unlike any other magazine I have read."—Elise Bowan                                                                                                             

“Greenwoman filled the gap in my life that I didn't know existed: a magazine that connected all my interests: the earth, gardening, and a feminine perspective. I couldn't believe my luck upon discovering it! Greenwoman will now replace some of my subscriptions that were only gardening, that ignored earth issues...Viva Greenwoman. —Elisabeth Kinsey, Greenwoman's Sex in the Garden columnist.
