About the Book

TEN YEARS, is a fictional story based on inspired events. It is a love story about a ten-year relationship between two people, Manolito Sneed and Francesca Bright. It begins when Manolito is awakened to find his fiancée Francesca, in full cardiac arrest. Not knowing the fate of his soul mate, Manolito is overcome with grief, and passes out several times throughout the story. During his fainting spells, he takes the reader on a ten-year journey of their life together, beginning when he first meets his co-worker Francesca. The only problem is, Manolito is married with a young son, and is fearful of telling his wife, Deidre, about his new relationship. Ten Years attempts to weigh out the options of staying in a safe and secure, though unhappy marriage; as oppose to leaving to experience true happiness with being in love for the first time. My hope is that Ten Years will cause you, the reader, to ponder some of the subject matters in the book; and share your perspective on how the characters relates to such topics as, infidelity, true love, forbidden relationships, injustice, and forgiveness. The book is a collection of thoughts and feelings on a variety of life's issues. Travel with me as I present some of those issues, during a season of love in a fictional novel called... “Ten Years” A Love Story.

About the Author

Emanuel started writing as a means of therapy to deal with a significant loss. Ten Years was created from that loss, and it is the author’s first published writing. “Growing up, I always had a gift for creating and making up stuff; we didn’t have computers or cell phones back then to entertain us. So, whenever I got punished, and sent to my room, writing became a source of entertainment for me,” the author says. Currently, Emanuel resides in Windsor Hills, Maryland with his wife, Vonda Delisa Reed of twenty-three years, and are the proud parents of Aaron and Emanuel Quincy. Retired after 33 years of government service, Emanuel devotes most of his time serving on various ministries at his church. The author also enjoys going to the movies, the beach, making pottery and playing tennis. He loves spending time with his family, especially his grandson Titan. Emanuel plans to write a second book soon.
