The Green Legacy is the story of a sixteen-year-old that feels driven to go to 19th century Louisiana. Judy's plan in this paranormal tale is to do whatever it takes to gain power and influence over others.
The music and surrounding sound effects of the trailer were carefully selected to reflect the mood of the beginning of the book. I compared Judy's frame of mind during her arrival to New Orleans to an unanticipated storm thunderously rolling into the port. Because of her encounter with a member of the Green family, the powerful theme takes on a unexpected sensual tone, which then leads to the unexpected appearance of the mysterious stranger.
I began writing this book as a way of collecting and documenting my own family roots. I was curious how as far back I could trace my lineage. The more information I found after speaking to relatives and tracking down information on Ancestry.com, the more I realized that there was another tale forming; one which would connect all of the family stories together under one main theme. This is how the story of Judy began.
There really was a sixteen-year-old named Judy who arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana as part of a slave manifest on March 14, 1843, as seen below (#16).
The love, tragedy, and unexpected surprises that Judy experiences are all tied to the betrayal she believes she suffered at the hands of one she loves. Her need for revenge spans for generations as Judy seeks satisfaction and an understanding .
Hope you enjoy reading The Green Legacy as much as I enjoyed writing it. Take a look at the trailer.
I love my New York home. Its diversity inspires me. I would not for the world trade my multitude of experiences there.
