PRLog - Nov. 10, 2012 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cedric Nettles is a native of Darlington, SC where he had dreams of becoming an ESPN sports anchor. Cedric never was able to play organized sports because of his asthma condition he endured from his infancy until he was 17 years old. By covering sports he could still enjoy the game as the passionate storyteller he strives to be even if he was not destined to be able to tell his own stories as a former player. His career path took a different turn as he went from a young man that never ran a single mile in his life to a physically fit communications soldier in the United States Army. He never dreamed that he would later find himself recruited to the most elite unit in the 10th Mountain Division. He later graduated from airborne school and did parachutist duty for that unit. It takes five qualifying jumps to graduate; he did them all being first out of the door out of 3 different aircrafts, a rare feat. The irony is simple, a year prior he had no desire to be a paratrooper. He even had 2 partial parachute malfunctions he survived that were not life threatening, but could have potentially crippled him. That experience had a profound impact on his life and changed a very shy and sheltered personality into the assertive presence he is today.

He has encountered rejection, bullying, verbal abuse, that can really damage the psyche of anyone. Yet through a greater grace he overcame that. Cedric understands that becoming more confident in himself through his own trials and struggles means little if he does not reach his hand back to help others examine who they really are. For he feels there is no greater tragedy for a person to not know what they are really capable of because of the diseased seeds of doubts that were planted so deeply within them. He seeks to empower all he touches through his hard-hitting shorelines to become bigger believers in themselves and to strive for greatness as he still continues to preserver to higher ground. And again reach his hand back to help someone else up.

Cedric Nettles writes TRUTH- dressed in familiar settings and dancing with recognizable characters. A smooth style that is easy to read with an almost musical beat that plays over and over in your head. Yet the truth can be painful at times and Cedric is not afraid to expose pain and suffering in his characters and ultimately in humanity. The universal themes of family, sexuality, religion, and betrayal become hauntingly personal as Cedric paints a mural with his words. Like every genius; Cedric takes the reader beyond what is expected. His writing style is in your face, holding nothing back, unapologetically and undeniably real. There is a point where fiction is so real it becomes fact. That is the place from which Cedric Nettles writes.
