If you are close to me, you have probably heard me utter those words, “the Ozinta series” a couple of times, and wondered what it was all about. I’ve uploaded a logo bearing the words a couple of times on social media. It’s even on a monogram I designed for myself. I’ve been quite cryptc about it.
Well, the time has come for cats to jump out of bags.
The Ozinta series has been a pet project of mine since three months after my non-profit for writers was birthed (August, 2016). I have been nurturing the idea since, waiting for the right time to let it out and let it blossom…because once it is out, the way it is designed, it must not fail.
Dictionary.com defines the word bohemian as “a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts” and the word dilettante as “a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge”. Combine both definitions and you have “a socially unconventional person who cultivates areas of interest (in the arts), without real commitment or knowledge”.
Happy New Year Folks. Yes, it’s been over forty days (48 exactly) since I last posted. It’s been a roller coaster of busy nights to lazy nights to incapable nights back to lazy nights.

What do you do when you wake up early in the morning and discover that people are out there, actually watching and reading your stuff, noting things, deciding if you’re the real deal or not? And then they find out you are, and decide, let’s encourage him, let’s encourage her, let’s get him/her nominated for an award that if they won, would blow their minds?
