“How do we give thanks after the year we all have?”
Yesterday, I woke, and it dawns on me that next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. “WOW, It’s here, what am I thankful for?” I did do a bigThankful, giving thanks blog one year ago yet this year’s message will have a defend outlook than just a year ago.
One of my new pal’s had asked me ‘How are you and coping with Covid19 restrictions?’ I have to think of all of the hardship that I have endeared thou this year while a tear runs out of my eyes. It’s been VERY HARD for me, coping with Covid19 restrictions, and the matter’s of 2020 all year long.
Now we ALL as a whole country Covid19 Thanksgiving Restrictions. Some of the rules that are madding and crazy, I don’t remember Easter and the 4th of July being out of had like having cop’s over if you host a Thanksgiving Dinner that had only ten people, or wearing a mask in your home. The question here… how does one eat turkey while wearing a mask? I hear so many friends told me they all have to FACE-TIME their loved ones over the holidays. I have to cry seeing a few new bittersweet TV Christmas commercials. It’s just a very sad holiday.
My thanksgiving wish to you is that… I hope this is a “One-time holiday deal” and may next year we would be back to normal or something that we were all familiar with, yet not the covid19 restrictions of the year, 2020.
On July 20, 2013, it was an extraordinary day because I published my debut book, Omerta Affair. A romance set in the violent underworld of the Las Vegas Mafia. Remembering that day, I was jumping with overjoy, tears of joy. It was a super fabulous, wonderful feeling, “I really did, I’m a published indie author.” Fast forward six years later, it’s time for me celebrating my book once more as it releases under a new title.

It’s all began on my 22 birthday. I went to the newly open Mob Museum in Las Vegas Nevada. To my shock, Frank Cuttolla was there signing his book. I met him and told him that I want to be a Mafia-Romance, and he said to me that if I need help, just let him know. I said okay thinking he has better things to do than helping me a young CP girl at the time. I found him on Facebook weeks later, and we began to talk, he always inviting me to this and that. I base my first book “Omerta Affair” off on Tony Spilotro’s reign as The Las Vegas Mafia boss, in the 1970s. He had it all, running the Crime underworld. He could have any woman he wanted in Las Vegas. Instead, he became romantically Geri Rosenthal. At first, it was a Casino’s FanFic to the 1995 move, that I was witting and putting online for free. My family and friend told me it was way too good to be a FanFic. After I finished my book, Frank hooked me up with some people and that how my book came to be. Now he’s Uncle Frank to me.
Since then, I have continued to gravitate toward writing dark, mature romances, some suitable only for adults. It is frustrating to me that some authors don’t take me seriously because of that I have Cerebral Palsy. I write dark romance, and my Cerebral Palsy had nothing with it. Even if I didn’t have Cerebral Palsy, I would still write Dark Romance books. On November 17, 2018, after years of writer’s block and personal problems, I finally came out with the Deepest Element, which is a short story under my formal pen name Alexandra Forry. Now I’m rewriting Deepest Elements to be a full-flash novel tiled Blue Bell my goal for it to come out late 2020.
Blue Bell set at a very elite boarding school that has darkened within its wall. Arriving in Radcliffe Heights, Rhode Island, freshman Peony “Poppy” Warwick admired the picturesque small town. But deep in the shadows of the woods near Blue Bell Boarding School, and along its hallowed halls, lurked illicit sex, murder, and harrowing danger. Seduced by Damon Dashwood, the handsome, blue-eyed, white blonde 41-year-old Headmaster, Poppy enters a world of love, ecstasy, heartbreak, betrayal, and death.
How Did I get my idea for Blue Bell? In 2005 I was living in Pahrump, Nevada, that’s world-famous for its whorehouse of ill representatives. When breaking news hit our town’s newspaper, and then it went on to become a remarkable news story on cbsnews.com.
The story went like this. This guy went and told detectives he found the videotape of a young of 4 or 5 years of age girl who had sexually assaulted in this homemade videotape. Investigators don’t think this guy made the tape.
Being homeschooled with nothing to do, I followed this story until I read this five years later; “We found the victim. She’s safe,” Nye County sheriff’s Detective told The Associated Press. I was fifteen at the time. I had made up this story idea.
About a girl in a boarding school that is determined to expose her school’s evil headmaster. After she had discovered a prostitution ring, sex trafficking, and murder within the school’s walls and on its grounds, even though human trafficking is a foul, very dark subject, the morale of this book is “fight for what you believe in, for what’s right” and “never give up.” I never wrote it down until December of 2017.
“It is an interesting story that is generally well told. The basic premise is sound, and it has the potential to be a well-received psychological thriller. The two main (Poppy and Dashwood) are well constructed and carry the story well. The plot and storyline are clear. The reader can see from the mission that Poppy is on; Exposing the criminality of her headmaster Dashwood and the school in the sex scandal that had been going on for years.” A review of DEEPEST ELEMENTS.
I never did plan of having my two main characters, Poppy and Dashwood, falling in love with each other. I like to point out that, It a time of great confusion for girls as they start to get sexual desires. There is an element of excitement and danger with an older man with power. Poppy knew that Dashwood is a criminal, and their relationship is illegal. LOVE is stronger than HATE, that why I shall make it she want him in jail party because oddly she would have him all to herself. It’s love everlasting.
