Virginia Man's True Story of One Family's "Dark Secret"
MIDLOTHIAN, VIRGINIA - The 1950's in the American South was a time of mystery and superstition, explains Willie Tee, the author of The Winds of Destiny (available from 1stBooks Library). Not only did many southern blacks practice voodoo and witchcraft, but they also believed that "witchcraft could cause death and a wealth of other illnesses."
In The Winds of Destiny, Tee shares the story of his own family, and their involvement in the darker mysteries of rural southern life. Beginning with the true story of his uncle's death in a trucking accident, Tee journeys back to the place and time that shaped his uncle's destiny-the rural south in the 1950's. "From the visit of his nearly century year old mother for the trucker's funeral, to scenes of his previous brushes with death, and a voyage back in time ... that shaped the trucker's destiny; this book is a roller coaster ride," Tee promises.
Tee's story slowly reveals the "dark secret" that hung over the farm where the trucker was reared. As the novel progresses, readers can identify the true villain, and judge him by his circumstances. Can the tragedy of a family be blamed on one person, or was "the tragedy destined to happen ... thereby changing the course of many people's lives?"
Born in North Carolina in 1955, Tee experienced the 1950's in the American South first hand. A retired and decorated U.S. Army Staff Sergeant, he has a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Virginia Commonwealth University and has completed numerous courses in military police and law enforcement training.
At home in Chesterfield County, Virginia, Tee currently works as a Consumer Affairs Investigator for the Office of Consumer Affairs. He shares his days with his wife, Ruth and his granddaughter.
