Andre M. Ashford, a writer of suspense, intrigue, and an occasional scribe of inspirational quotes, has completed his new book, “The Watermelon Woman – From Dawn to Dusk”: a gripping example of what happens when decades of unchallenged bigotry is confronted—especially in an almost magical way.

“My stories are created through life’s nuances in which there are different strokes for different folks,” Andre M. Ashford said of his writing. “I strive to bring full attention and awareness about karma from the literature I bring forth. Unscrupulous toward people of the black race, Lee Ann Parker’s life of condescension is about to change.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Andre M. Ashford’s plot follows this country club snob from her stately home to her exclusive country club where she gets an unusual new juice after her daily workout before engaging in a racist spat with a Black member of the club. In a fit of indignation, Lee Ann Parker’s day continues with a mean streak, until the message of a mysterious note she received and the contents of the enchanted post-workout tincture combine to make Lee Ann Parker realize: “Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.”

Andre M. Ashford’s story is written in blended style that crosses screenplay with prose.

Readers who wish to see if hate can ever be transformed into tolerance can purchase“The Watermelon Woman – From Dawn to Dusk” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
