Chuckie Parker writes to entertain and in so doing, he is able to treat readers to a compelling read suffused with relatable events and lessons in life as well. “The Curse of Money, Sex, and Life” (published by iUniverse) shares the tale of one man’s dangerous journey to mend his ways and take his life back—before it is too late.
Self-storage entrepreneur Stanly Patterson is a womanizer who never thinks that his grass is green enough, that his car is flashy enough, or that his business is successful enough. His passion for his wife, Toya, is alive and well, but he just cannot seem to stay faithful to her. As he carelessly moves from one affair to another, he has no idea that his deceitful ways are about to catch up with him.
After his wife’s cousin, Missy, catches him with one of his many flings and tells Toya, she promptly moves out, triggering Stanly to drown his sorrows in a bottle, crash his Mercedes in a ditch and spend the night in a county jail. Desperate to rekindle his marriage, Stanly books a trip to Jamaica with Toya, who is clueless that Stanly has a secret motive—to place a voodoo curse on her cousin, Missy. But after he visits a fly- by-night voodoo master, one bad thing after another happens to him; Stanly soon realizes that he is the victim of his own vengeful ways. Stanley’s journey to self-destruction and back to self-redemption encourages readers who have been astray to tread on the path towards the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
An excerpt from the book reminding readers to love themselves reads:
“I am just going to love everybody. I already love my life but not my lifestyle. Loving my life is more powerful so I am happy.”
“The Curse of Money, Sex, and Life”
