Spotlight: Of Sentimental Value By Fumi Hancock

ONE EVENT Elects Who You Are; ONE EVENT Molds Your Values & Believes; ONE EVENT Charts the Course of Your Journey... Good, Bad or Indifferent... ONE EVENT Determines Your DESTINY... FOR LIFE! ONE EVENT Will Change Your Life... FOREVER! A Young African Immigrant, SIBERIA TONKA's dream of becoming the next bestselling, globally celebrated Fantasy author in America (Nashville, Tennessee), like her icon, Princess of Suburbia, is quickly eroding! Buried in debt, Siberia's life is turned upside down in America when she is forced to retrieve an African artifact she had unknowingly lost and her life and that of her loved ones in Africa is turned upside down as the recovery of this artifact continues to elude her! She must race to save her sister's life while juggling her feelings between a wealthy African, but Nashville based, Art collector and a simple American consignment store owner. Who wins her heart and will she save her sister in time?

Fumi Hancock “Stephanie” Hancock is a walking example of how an ordinary person from a shackled life of broken promises and shattered dreams can live a fulfilled destiny. After twenty years of dropping her pen, she picks it right back up again by releasing the first in the Grimmlyn Series: The Adventures of Jewel Cardwell, Hydra’s Nest.

Though having graduated with a postgraduate degree in communication arts, and undergraduate degrees in English studies and nursing, she ascribes her writing to her life experiences, which were many times challenging. According to her, the protagonists and antagonists in her novels often come from the darkest moments of her life—a tribute to the fact that something good can come out of mysterious and difficult circumstances, if we choose to turn our challenges around. Age is merely a number where success is concerned. She also pulls some of her characters from her travels around the world—in particular, exotic Africa—uniquely weaving her tales.

Fumi loves to write for young adults, particularly urban fantasy, and paranormal fiction with a touch of romance. She aspires to one day write a mystery/detective novel for the adult audience. But for now, she is content with her young adult audience. With her background in nursing, she gently nurses her unusual characters to life for her readers to enjoy.

She lives in Tennessee with her husband, Dr. David Hancock, and her two grown sons, Bola and Demola Thompson. She cherishes her two stepdaughters, who reside in Michigan.
