“Daddy” – what inspired my sixth novel, Author G D Grace

GD Grace Headshot 12-9-10I finally figured out why I was inspired to write a theme that deals with fatherhood in my forthcoming novel “Daddy.”

I’ve concluded that the relationship between the father, Jackson Young, and his son, Harlem, allows me to re-create similar breakdowns in the relationship between me and my father, and help me better understand it, to reach a deeper level of peace about it.

I define the relationship I have with my father to be an understanding. It is understood that I love and respect him as my father, and he loves and respects me as a son. That’s about as deep as it has ever been. This is why I decided to explore the father and son theme; it is a proactive exercise for me to reexamine things.

“Daddy,” is 100% fiction, and beyond the emotional aspect has no similarities outside of the father son disconnect.

I hope it assists someone else in their quest for resolution and understanding. If it inspires someone to pursue their own journey, then I’ll feel I have done alright writing this novel,

On a final note, my dad is alive an retired, enjoying his life. I’ll be talking to him soon. ~GD

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…

  1. Eugene Carter says:

    also Michael’s brown eyes wuld be dominant genetically and Paris has pale turquoise eyes. – geraldinemitchell , London, 18/1/2013 13:45 But Michael’s father Joseph has blue-green eyes, which means Michael has a dominant and recessive gene. Combine that with Debbie’s blue eyes, and Paris’s eyes are completely possible.
