TODAY’S BLACK SPECULATIVE FICTION MONTH SPOTLIGHT IS CED PHARAOH!
My name is Ced Pharaoh, I was born in Chicago, IL and was married in front of thousands at The African Festival Of Arts. I’m a lifelong bookworm; my earliest favorites were, of course comic books/graphic novels but that branched out into mysteries (Encyclopedia Brown, Sherlock Holmes etc), thrillers, poetry, non-fiction biographies and sci-fi/fantasy! However, a book called The Legend of Tarik by Walter Dean Myers really got me. It wasn’t spelled out but I KNEW that Tarik was a Blackman..it was a thin book but was packed with excitement and adventure……
Fast forward and I’ve used my love of photography, reading and writing in past marketing positions and opportunities to create bios, media releases, advertising copy, voice-over scripts, interviews, blog posts and social media content. However, I’ve always written poetry and short stories, in particular Sci-Fi/Fantasy where the only boundaries are the limits of your imagination and the only rules are…there are none! The possibilities are endless! So here it is, inspired by the people I’ve met, by the genres I love and the inspiration of the rich African Culture and History, the mythologies and My People. I invite you to Follow & Connect with me to learn more about the cool stories I will tell. Comment and Critiques are welcome!
