Si King, Niece of Legendary Entertainment Promoter Don King Pens First Novel

“It takes a special imagination to write such a compelling story. The only question is; Why did it take so long?!” Suzanne DeLaurentiis, Producer/Filmmaker

 
May 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Growing up “King” in a large household of entertainers was as natural as breathing for Si King, niece of the legendary promoter, Don King.

While still in her teens, Si King moved from Cleveland, Ohio to New York to re-connect with her uncle. During this time, she vacillated from wanting a career as a vocalist, to using her natural talent of making people laugh, to becoming a standup comedian. Her uncle encouraged her to pursue her education while she explored these options. He told her she “could be anything she wanted to be”. He was also there to mentor this young naïve teen who was suddenly thrust into an environment of “who’s who” in the entertainment industry.

At a very young age, as far as Si was concerned, kittens were tigers and lions were Kings. Her imagination seemed to always be in overdrive, seeing clouds as pillows where angels slept. Dark buildings housed imaginary evil creatures and flowers danced at night when nobody was watching.

Millennium Slave, an original novel where fact meets fiction, is drawn from tales passed down from Si’s African and Native American ancestry. The result is a story that addresses America’s shameful past in the rawest form. The true genius of this fictional story lies in the fact that it is a well written piece that addresses the complexity of the relationship between slave and slave owner. The book reaches into the souls of whom we all have a profound kinship. .

Si’s first book launch will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada in Summer, 2011.
