Nariscia Lott was born on December 23, 1973, in Chicago, Illinois; but she was raised in Indianola, Mississippi, in a small house with her two sisters, mother and grandfather. Born with a severe case of idiopathic scoliosis, she attributes her creativity and storywriting talent to stubbornness and a vivid imagination. Weepin' Willa: A Collection of Short Stories is Lott's first self-published book.
This is a journey of life-altering surgeries, a few romantic disappointments and the death of a caring mother. The latter tragic event pervades each line of these pages of autobiographical elements written from the heart. Weepin' Willa is stained with tears of love, courage and endurance. Being 4'4" tall isn't easy; but it's possible to find peace through self-acceptance and a dry sense of humor.
