“The Power of Storytelling”



By Michele Curtis


The thing that makes a story meaningful is the power to touch the audience.

All writers want their readers to keep reading but we as writers must say something worth that attention. Have you ever read a book you couldn’t put down, watched a movie that kept you on the edge of your seat?
Anyone who knows me, knows I love old black and white movies; the plot, the acting, the magic. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to Bogie and Bacall. I enjoy the modern-day flicks; “Girl Trip” which I loved! “The Hitman’s Body Guard” awesome!
The thing that makes a story meaningful is the power to touch the audience. You care about fictions people in imaginary situations like the movie “The Bodyguard.” Watching your favorite team play a sport to rooting for the good guy in an action movie, stories move us and change us.
Movies, books, theater, music all bring us together and make our differences small and our similarities big!
It is my job to make you feel, think, an act. If I have done that I have told a story!

True Story about The Comeback Kid – Kenny Jones



Have you been through a Storm and came out Stronger and Courageous?

The True Story from Kenny Jones – THE Comeback Kid has impacted many lives in less than 1 year! 

Last Year I had an Exclusive Interview with THE Comeback Kid, Kenny Jones. This week I received more news about the Remarkable Life from Kenny Jones, Amazon International Best Selling Author in 2017.

Kenny’s story is from a man who went through the deepest valley with despair by losing everything up to being a Well Known Amazon International Bestselling Author last year.

The Comeback Season: The Untapped Art of Mastering your Resilience

Like everyone else life was a Roller Coaster! The book was birthed after realizing the numerous times where Kenny has conquered an Adversity.

In 2002, at 22 years old he met his father for the first time ever in his life.

That experience framed how he treated not only the men in his life, but how he viewed himself!

After 10 years he met his father, his father and grandmother, passed away the same week. The Grief of losing his father and grandmother took him into a very private battle with depression and self-doubt.

In 2008, he became homeless, jobless, and only owned the clothes on his person. The most difficult situations he went through in 2008 – his car was stolen, a “friend” pawned all the belongings from Kenny for money to support her pregnancy, which happened also in 2008.

He bounced back in 2010 – his life was smooth sailing at that time.

The Comeback Season; The Untapped Art of Mastering Your Resililience


In 2016 – he went back through one of the worst Storms in his life, where it became especially clear to him who were his friends and how much power he gave to others in his life.

“Embracing these times was particularly important in understanding that amid all of those setbacks, came back harder and stronger that I went into those situations” said Kenny Jones, Author from The Comeback Season, The Untapped Art of Mastering Your Resilience.

“My situations are pale in comparison to the storms and adversity from others, but I wrote the book so that the world can have a perspective of how to master Resilience in the inevitable times where things don’t go as positively planned” said Kenny Jones.

Nowadays Kenny is empowering others to embrace their stories standing in their truths, because he embraced his own. Dozens of people come to him for help in embracing their own stories and he is proud for not only see his book be used as a Blueprint across the world! People are using Kenny’s Life experiences and the practical tools he wrote about in his book for their own Comeback Seasons.

Out of His Amazon International Bestselling Book – The Comeback Season – a Movement has started.

He is watching his message take storm through his Resilience Project, a collective of people who didn’t know how to master their Resilience, but now are changing their own lives; his Master Course Workshops, where he is working with aspiring authors around the world to put their stories in a Bestselling book; and even his 1:1 Sessions where he works with people who have been through a tough life.

True Story of Hope and Perseverance, Field of Hearts by Marian Klooster



True Story of Hope and Perseverance, Field of Hearts by Marian Klooster


Field of Hearts - Amazon International Best Selling Book by Marian Klooster

Field of Hearts – Amazon International Best Selling Book by Marian Klooster

How many times have we seen people with chronic medical conditions persevere as an example to us all? Having a chronic medical condition will many times lead to depression, anxiety and/or uncertainty about the future.

The story of Marian Klooster is one of hope, strength, perseverance, and success despite her chronic medical condition. Marian is from Willemstad, sunny island Curacao. In 2011, she lost her son a week after his birth due to a pregnancy complication.

She was devastated and depressed, but she didn’t give up! Despite the several challenges she had to overcome in her life, Marian was able to rise above it and succeed. She is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to her book, Field of Hearts. She started writing her book to cope with her emotions, and it didn’t take long to finish and get ready for publishing!

Marian received guidance and support from her book coach, Kenny Jones. Kenny is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is an Amazon International Best-Selling Author due to his book, The Comeback Kid.

Marion’s book debuted this year in the Top Best-Selling Books in 4 Different Countries in its category. Most of the Sales were from Curaçao and the Netherlands. She donates 10% from each sale to Curacao Heart Foundation to support their fight against heart diseases through research, prevention, and care.

Lives were touched by her Book – here I include some Feedbacks she received from her Readers.

“101% worth the time invested to read! This is a story that touches the heart in every aspect of the Word! It takes you back and forth as how life of this young lady has been up until now. Simple said, this is a TRUE Story worth the read and learn from. This Young Lady, Marian, shows that with self-confidence, determination and eagerness to succeed regardless of all the reasons to give up, she never quit! Keep Moving Forward! Thanks for sharing Your Life with us, the readers, not just another Story!” by David C.E.J. Jansen

“Field of Hearts is an incredibly emotional experience. Mari bares her soul into each page of the book. Once I started reading the book, I could not put it down. Such a brave and bold move to share her story. Learning about becoming an Entrepreneur is one thing, but watching Mari’s Journey in this book is a new level! I’m speechless.” By Kenny Jones, Author of the Amazon Bestselling Book Comeback Kid

‘Overcoming’ Torrential Waters by Cedric Nettles



Torrential Raine is on the way!

Torrential Waters was my hard hitting, emotional journey of a ‘gifted’ young man coping with new found fame and a very low opinion of himself. I shared my childhood of having a poor self image and being bullied. I also shared the power of God’s hands on you, and His ability to show favor on your life, even when you don’t think you are ready. I laugh , because

at times I feel I am living Torrential Waters in some respects now. You will relate as well after you finish reading.


I don’t pull punches in Torrential  Waters, because life does not. This piece is by Chrystan Johnson and expresses  what she felt after reading Torrential Waters. We all have to know we have a purpose to our pain. We have an assignment, something we have to do before we take that last breath. That one thing you think that does not matter serves a higher purpose. I want to encourage everyone to go as hard as you can in this life, to grow, to serve, to be all you are called to be.


I was honored to read this review, this sums it up

Excellent read! Bought the book, but due to some medical/eye problems, could not read it for a few months. Finally got that fixed (!) and finished Nettles’ “Torrential Waters” within a day and a half! One of those books you just don’t want to end! Wonderful insight into faith, family, relationships, forgiveness of others as well as one’s self, hope for the future and the ever-enduring spirit of the human soul. I highly recommend for readers of any age. I hope Mr. Nettles has more (perhaps a series?!), but if not a series about this character, than at least more books planned for the future. The author’s own story itself is book-worthy; I personally would love to see him write an autobiography on how much he’s overcome in his own life. Meanwhile – buy the book! You won’t be disappointed.-Jan Harvin
