Part girl. Curiosity-led. Knowledge-fed. Baltimore-bred. Born to an electrician and a teacher, Eyeconik is a beacon of light that exposes the bliss of ignorance. Part griot. She told stories before she could read, and wrote before she could walk. Her love for all things words was inevitable.
At 10, she wrote short stories during free time in 5th grade. In that little corner, in that little classroom, was where writing shaped her future. It was there that she learned how polished prose could convey passion, illuminate purpose and guarantee unity. More than just your average hobbyist, Eyeconik is an author who sparks the conversations that interrupt societal norms and empower her peers.
She is also the self-proclaimed—and the writer-approved literary godmother who works to enkindle the writer in all whom she encounters. As an editor, she helps seasoned, and future writers profit from their ideas and words. She converts, cultivates and connects the thoughts of authors and entrepreneurs so that they can accurately and efficiently deliver their literary works.
The constant attacks that Borne and Mackenzie are involuntarily subjected to begin spilling over into their budding relationship. Though both are fighting to remain above ground when it comes to their personal lives, one is falling significantly short.
It is 2 centuries post-slavery; 5 decades post- I Have A Dream and 8 years since we voted Obama into office, yet interracial relationships-to be more specific black man; white woman relationships-are still very much taboo. Because of his family's views on whites, Borne is hesitant to admit that Mackenzie enamors him, but Mackenzie isn't ashamed to admit her Captivation of A Thug!
