AUTHOR INTERVIEW: DEEDEE CUMMINGS

In The Nick Of Time

 

BOOK DETAILS

SynopsisNick Saint never really put a lot of thought into his name until one snowy day in December when he accidentally receives a letter meant for Saint Nick. Realizing there is not much time left until Christmas, Nick opens the letter. The unexpected message inside ultimately leads him on a journey of understanding poverty, gratitude, and service to others while discovering the real meaning of the holiday spirit.

Nick’s actions and kindness are filled with heartwarming results that even please Santa Claus himself! An endearing story of a little brown boy who helps Santa save Christmas.

Children of all ages and backgrounds who read In the Nick of Time will understand that sometimes the smallest act of kindness can take up the biggest space in someone else’s heart.

WHAT OR WHO INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE "IN THE NICK OF TIME"?

DEEDEEMy love for Christmas and my desire to have holidays stories that my own children could relate to.

 

WHAT WAS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT WRITING THIS STORY?

DEEDEEGetting the word out that it exists and is very important.

 

WHAT DO YOU HOPE FOR READERS TO TAKE AWAY FROM THIS STORY?

DEEDEEFirst, that it is a really beautiful story about compassion, understanding, and gratitude. We need to have friends of all kinds so that we understand that everyone's experience is not the same.
Secondly, the importance of black and brown children having the opportunity to see themselves as heroes and leaders. Not all stories have to be about our struggle. Some can be about every day life and how we can help make the world, and ourselves, better.

DEEDEERead. I read a lot. Reading makes me a better writer and a better human.

 

ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS? IF NOT, DO YOU PLAN TO WRITE AND PUBLISH MORE BOOKS?
