LOS ANGELES - Sept. 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Dorian Mendez-Vaz, a native of Camden, NJ, will appear at the 2015 Authors Showcase on October 10, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois at the Carter G. Woodson Library, Sponsored by Books Ink Inc, and Books Ink Literary Services, LLC. The event is free and open to the public.

Mendez-Vaz will serve on the Author Panel and sign copies of her highly anticipated debut novel, Sometimes In December. The story is told through the lens of the main character Geri Michaels, a successful woman who determines at the midpoint in her career that she desperately needs a change in her life. After years of denying how unfulfilled her life has been she searches her past and reflects on critical times in her childhood. Geri recognizes how events in her past have determined the paths she has taken as an adult and how those choices have somehow defined her.

Geri begins to redirect some of her passion for helping others inward. She embarks on her new life journey, leaving Baltimore and relocates to Chicago where she begins a lucrative career as a novelist. Things change quickly and dramatically as she experiences love, great joy, profound loss, and unexpected recoveries.

Mendez-Vaz  is an ordained minister in the American Baptist Churches-USA, and President and Founder of Within Her Reach, Inc., a non-profit organization.  "I am thrilled to return to Chicago. This is an incredible venue and I am very excited," stated Mendez-Vaz.
