Hello My Happy People,
In today's episode, I get to sit down with the multi-talented Nzondi (Ace Antonio Hall). He is an American actor, musician, educator, entrepreneur and an award winning horror author just to name a few of his accomplishments. He is the first African-American to win a Bram Stoker award in a novel category. His novel, Oware Mosaic, won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Young Adult fiction; the most prestigious award given to horror writers in the world.
Among his many short stories published in anthologies and print magazines, Nzondi’s short story, Raising Mary: Frankenstein, was nominated for the 2016 horror story of the year in the 19th Annual Editors and Preditors Readers Poll.
Nzondi is a former Director of Education for NYC schools and the Sylvan Learning Center, the award-winning educator earned a BFA from Long Island University. We had such a great conversation there was no way to cut it down to just one 40 minute show so you are getting Nzondi in this episode and next week for episode 67 as well. Be sure to come back next week because there is just so much great information, advice, humor, and sneak peeks for what he has coming up in his career, you will not want to miss a minute of it! If you are a fan of horror, this is an author to follow!
Be sure to check out all his social media and watch what amazing things he has coming up. This man is going to do great things, you do not miss out!
