Fight Injustice with Fiction

Hello, I am delighted to share insights from my journey and the themes of my award-winning debut, The Believer within You.

Drawing from personal experiences, including the notable halted illegal foreclosure on Graceland in 2024, this narrative highlights the critical need for vigilance in protecting our heritage and homes. This issue is not isolated but part of an ongoing and systemic problem that continues to unfold across the nation. Inspired by the 2008 financial crisis—a devastating event that deeply affected millions, including my own family—the story meticulously scrutinizes the effectiveness of governmental agencies and exposes systemic failures that persist, often concealed from the public eye.

Through our protagonist, twelve-year-old Brenda Sue Bellamy, an ordinary 12-year-old with her trusty notebook by her side, the narrative portrays the resilience required to confront and combat corruption and inefficiency within government agencies. Brenda Sue, initially with no ambitions of becoming a civil servant, finds herself thrust into the glare of the public eye as she transitions from an observer to a whistleblower. This shift highlights the profound impact of individual initiative and civic duty.

Engaging Insights from the Narrative:
  • Timely and Timeless: The book’s relevance is highlighted by recent events such as the halted illegal foreclosure on Graceland and ongoing investigations into real estate forgeries. These incidents underscore the enduring challenges in the real estate sector and the need for continuous reform.
  • Exposing Corruption and Agency Inefficacy: Reflecting on widespread regulatory failures, the book critically examines governmental inefficiency and corruption.
  • The Role of Government Agencies: Despite the establishment of numerous new agencies post-2008 financial crisis, their effectiveness remains questionable. This suggests that local mismanagement may reflect broader systemic issues.
  • Whistleblower Impact and Civic Responsibility: The evolution of Brenda Sue Bellamy from observer to whistleblower emphasizes the crucial role of citizens in ensuring governmental accountability.

My military background, particularly serving as a Master Chief Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy and working within the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, has profoundly shaped my understanding of societal challenges and the critical need for accountability. These themes are intricately woven throughout the book.

This book is more than just a narrative; it is an invitation to engage in a dialogue about our world, to think critically, and to act courageously. I aim to inspire not only young readers but also their guardians, encouraging all to believe in their ability to drive meaningful change.
