Have you ever had a dream that came to life? How about losing the one you love and not being able to save them? What about a gift that you were cursed with? Well image having all three like Sicily "Sissy" Monroe.
"Some might say what I have is a gift. I say, I want to return it." Sissy declares.
Sicily "Sissy" Monroe has all the qualities of a perfect young lady. She is almost where she wants to be in life. But lying deep in the pupil of her eyes hold something that she cannot get rid of which interferes with her plans. She fights everyday with no one but herself. After having her first vision at age six of her sister's (Misty) disappearance and the dreams of failing to save her, Sissy wants no part in another person's fate. For years Sissy tried hard to avoid contact with people because she feared foreseeing their death. In keeping with this, she tries to stay away from her family. Little did Sissy know she could not run from her past, or her gift. She hopes someone will put her out of her misery, but she will soon discover that her visions and dreams were just a mere image of herself.
Could you talk about your inspiration for wanting to become an author?
I never really thought about becoming an author. I always wanted to become a fashion designer and a singer. Can I sing? No! But there were a lot of singers going platinum who could not sing (still to this day), so I thought I could have a shot. I have been a creative person. I just knew I was going to have my own clothing line and boutique. I wanted to be just like Selena. But destiny has a way of making its own plans for you.
One day I told my mom I wanted to write a book after I read the Twilight Saga. Again the idea was nice but I never thought I could do it. She just looked at me like I was crazy. I began writing words like I always do and never get back to it. I wrote one page and then I left it in my computer. I didn’t think that I would ever go back to the document until a couple of days later Sicily “Sissy” Monroe whispered in my ear.
Two days passed by and on July 18, 2010 someone started talking to me in my head. I thought for sure I needed to be admitted to the mental hospital. I was at work when the “voice” began speaking. I got out of my chair and looked around to see if anyone was around. No one was there, so I sat back down. Then it spoke again. What is it? What do you want? I though. It wouldn’t stop talking, so I began to write everything down. That’s when The Unsacred Gift was born.
