Teen and Young Adult

Date Published: February 2016


Ever Dance With The Devil? 14 year-old Tajalik Stokes is a member of the 17th Street Serpents, a murderous gang in Chicago. After losing his brother to gang violence, Tajalik becomes defiant and violent in his own right. Nonetheless, Tajalik begins to wrestle with his pride when he is confronted with the gospel of Jesus Christ by his peculiar guidance counselor, Alfred Justice who tries to mentor him. Yet, Tajalik’s egotism and disobedience land him in a “Dante’s Inferno” experience at the gates of hell. Now, in agonizing pain, misery and regret, Tajalik finds himself in a realm of darkness trying to figure out answers as to how he got there. In this Author’s Cut of Affilaited, Champion weaves together the same elements from the previous edition, while streamlining the storyline to fully immerse the reader into the domain of the streets where good and evil are oftentimes hard to discern.



Teen and Young Adult

Date Published: August 2016

Enoch Zoles is an agnostic, egotistical, collegiate football star, primed to make millions of dollars as a professional football player. But a one-night stand with a seductive vixen leads to a downward spiral of devastating events, which cost him his reputation, his promising future, and his freedom. And, after experiencing an unexpected tragedy, Enoch wants nothing to do with the God his coach and mentors keep talking about. After repetitive visits to jail, he meets a mysterious inmate who challenges his humility, integrity, and faith—right down to the core of his spirit. But will it be enough to save him from a dreadful end?



Excerpt

Tajalik looked around in the dark void of where he stood, and saw the silhouette of more souls walking around him. Their faces were disfigured, too. He heard their weeping and moaning. Then, like them, he cried in misery and torment.
“William, what happens next? Is this it? We’re here forever, huh?”
“No, this is only the beginning, Stokes. Our affliction will get much worse.  For an eternity we-”
Loud screeching, screams suddenly interrupted William. Tajalik and the others, held their hands over their ears to block out the sounds that became intolerable. The noise only added to the burden of the souls. All of the afflicted began to run. Tajalik saw William turn and sprint, followed by the countless others that ran from the sounds. Tajalik tried his best to stay close to William. The screams seemed to get closer as Tajalik caught up to William. The two sprinted with thousands of others running away from the abominable noise following behind them. The screams of souls, echoed throughout the darkness, running from the predators who were seeking to destroy them.
The two veered down another dark path. On both sides of them were barren trees. It was so dark; the two were vaguely able to see in front of them. They continued to run as they heard the screams of other souls being picked off and tortured, by whatever creatures captured them. Tajalik looked through the forest. Alongside the path, he thought he saw a hill. He was only able to make it out because of its height in the background; which towered over the trees. Suddenly he felt inclined to veer off the path. Everyone running behind him seemed to be getting intercepted by their attackers. It made sense to take the road less traveled. He turned and ran through the forest of barren trees; leaving William to his own fate. He continued to hear the cries of the other souls. It was unbearable. Tajalik worked his way towards the hill; through the trees and thickets. As he ran, he heard himself getting farther and farther away from the screams. He stumbled and even ran head first into some branches that were unseen in the darkness. It still did not stop him. Finally, he came to the forest’s end.
He was standing in a small field, just a few yards from the base of the hill. He heard more branches rustling. He continued to run again, fearing he was being chased by the creatures that terrorized the dark. A figure emerged, running through the trees. Tajalik continued to sprint towards the hill, as he got closer he spotted a crevice at the base. It looked like a cave. With nowhere else to run, he headed straight inside. He stopped in dead in his tracks at the sight of a group of boys staring at him through black hoods. Tajalik became faint with fear. These were the boys that he saw in his dream; following him down the long dark road. Their unsettling stare terrified Tajalik even more. The figure that had been running behind Tajalik now stood at the opening at the bottom of the hill.
“Who are you?” asked the figure.
“Tajalik.”
“You’re new, huh?”
“What were those things?” Tajalik asked as he backed himself against a side of the cave wall, where he could keep an eye on the figure and the group of boys.
“It’s part of our sentence. Just don’t get caught. If you do, it makes your after-life that much worse.”
“What the hell are you talking about, man?”
“Hell is precisely what I’m talking about; Tajalik…Hell is precisely what I’m talking about…” The figure entered the cave finally and began to approach Tajalik.
“…But the children of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness: there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew chapter eight, verse twelve. I bet you wish you believed now.  Don’t you?”
Tajalik looked at the figure as the figure slowly approached him. Tajalik was baffled. It was another young boy in a hood. He nodded towards the other boys.
“We’re all lost souls, man. I’m Lavelle. I grew up in church. Had a mother and a grandmother who prayed for me consistently. They made me go to church regularly, even had me memorize scriptures from the Word. I had mentors who were constantly around me, telling me what to do and what not to do. I didn’t listen. I bucked authority because I loved the street life. I made the choice to not listen to the information, not to listen to the truth that was given to me. That’s the one thing that separates us that dwell here and those that dwell in paradise. That’s the key; Jesus Christ and the choices we make in life. I chose to rebuke the information. So here I stand.”
“So what do we do?” asked Tajalik in intense trepidation.

“We run and hide, Tajalik. It’s only a matter of time before they come through those woods to seek us out. They know this side of the gulf inside and out.”

Interview



Is There a Message in Your Novel That You Want Readers to Grasp?
I think the most important message for the readers is that your past doesn’t define you or your future.  Tragedy strikes everyone, but how you come back is what defines you.



Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
The biggest challenge that I have is finding the time to do it.  I’m a full-time physician and I have a family that I like to spend time with.  Most of my writing is done at night in a cigar shop where I can smoke and write at the same time in the peace and quiet or while listening to music.


How many books have you written and which is your favorite?

 I have published one book, I have one novel in editing, one novella at the editor and I am currently writing my third full length novel.  Far and above the book I’m writing now is my favorite.  It will be book 3 of the Doctors series called A Heart Reborn


If You had the chance to cast your main character from Hollywood today, who would you pick and why?
Bradley Cooper would play Dr. Lincoln Montgomery because he is an actor that can adapt well to any role.  He possesses the height to be Lincoln and the looks to be able to pull off debonaire billionaire doctor.  
Jessica Beil would play Dr. Nicole Harris, she has the classic beauty required for the role and is tall actress like Nicole.  I believe she could bring her to life on the big screen and pull of the drama, comedy and sports aspects.


When did you begin writing?
God’s honest truth I was thirty-eight and sitting in the middle of the desert in Afghanistan reading a lot of books.  I had these stories in my head and I decided to start putting them on paper.  


How long did it take to complete your first book?
A little under four years from starting to publishing.  I’ve since refined my craft and will have completed two novels and a novella in a years time.


Did you have an author who inspired you to become a writer?
 Many would say Austin or Tolstoy or Dickens...my inspirations are a little more relevant to my chosen genre...My writing posse that I depend on are my inspiration.  I want to be as good as them when I grow up.  So my inspirations are Kathleen Brooks, Jennifer Probst, Christina Tetreault, and Melody Anne.  Beyond that, I owe my senior high school English teacher Mrs. Debbie Daniel for instilling in me a love of writing.


What is your favorite part of the writing process?
Creating the love affair.  What roadblocks can I create that my characters must overcome to be together.


Describe your latest book in 4 words.
A lovestory unlike others


Can you share a little bit about your current work or what is in the future for your writing?
 The book that I’m currently editing, A Heart in Remission, is the follow-up to my debut novel The Infertile Heart.  This is the story of Marcie and Cole.  Cole nearly loses everything including his life during a mortar attack in Afghanistan.  As a Navy doctor, a gynecological oncologist, he shouldn’t even be there doing trauma surgery, but you are given orders not requests so Cole is in the desert.
Marcie, Dr. Lincoln Montgomery’s assistant loses her sister in a mortar attack in Afghanistan and inherits custody of her twelve-year-old daughter, Jennifer.
The story revolves around two people trying to overcome the tragedies of their past which are more intertwined than either one knows.  This is not a love story for the faint of heart.  You will laugh and you will cry and cry hard.
This is a story that is near and dear to my heart as a former Navy physician.  The realities of war and the losses people endure.





BK Harrell is former Navy physician who has had a long love of writing.  He specializes in medical, military and sports romance writing.  He began seriously writing while deployed to Afghanistan in 2012 and has never looked back.  Whether he is teaching, serving his country, educating people about the fine art of cigars, practicing medicine or spending time with friends and family he uses his diverse background to shape the world around him through words.
He uses his unique experiences and love of all things Atlanta, University of Georgia and sports to weave intricately detailed stories focused on Atlanta and the surrounding areas.  His goal is to bring the same joy and excitement he sees in his own city to the readers and to allow them to experience the city through his eyes.
Dr. Harrell is married to his beautiful wife Erin, a proud graduate of Auburn University, which makes multiple appearances in his books, and their wonderful one son.  Dr. Harrell is a native of Augusta, GA and a proud graduate of the University of Georgia, Emory University, and proud to have been a member of the first ever graduating class of Georgia Campus Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.  He currently resides in the Atlanta area where he practices medicine and raises his family.
