DuEwa’s Signs Quincy Rules at Subterranean Books

DuEwa Frazier Reading/Signing for QUINCY RULES

 

Imagine receiving mysterious letters and cards with no return address, only colorful stamps from all around the world. These letters and cards tell little about the person who sends them, other than the fact that the sender is the father you have never met. Quincy Lyles is a 15-year old teen who mastered yoga at a young age, gets straight A’s in school and never gets into trouble. That is, until she starts to search for her birth father. Struggling to understand her true identify and background, Quincy goes on an adventurous quest to find her father. The one friend Quincy can depend on, Delaney Rojas, helps her in her quest. Quincy begins to develop parts of herself she never knew existed within her new found “sleuthing” abilities. Quincy Rules is a young adult mystery with hints of humor and mysticism.

Blog: Writing Outside of Who You Are

Writing Outside of Who You Are by DuEwa Frazier

When I was an MFA student in New York City, I took a workshop with an instructor who was uncomfortable with the idea of a writer creating characters who are a different ethnicity than the writer. At the time I was working on two stories featuring characters who were of diverse backgrounds.

The ethnicity of the character is not an issue to me. But the perspective that you can’t write outside of who you are *does.* This is an issue that arose in my workshop at the time, back in 2010 or 2011. My instructor believed that you shouldn’t do it because today’s publishing industry won’t allow it.

Now it’s 2016 and as tensions boil over in our society related to race, gender, class – as we struggle to reach common ground and teach our children to have respect for difference, writers are in a unique position to help heal and close the gaps.  Read this entire blog at Goodreads.com.
