Author’s Media Kit
First time author Dwayne Murray, Sr., was compelled to write an urban novel that magnified the strength of a woman living in the mean streets of New York City. In his book, The Mouse that Roared, Miss Sandra Lyte is the mirror image of beauty, intelligence, intensity, vitality, and wit. Sandra Lyte’s personal attributes laid dormant deep within her, but when the time is right, she digs deep in her soul to muster up the nerve to stand up for herself.
Sandra’s beginnings in New York City were very turbulent. She ran away from home thinking she was “grown” but quickly recognized how naïve and immature she really was.
Just like fairy tales, a “prince” or a “knight in shining armor” comes along and promises love and happiness. He offers the “American Dream” on a silver platter all neatly packaged with a home, children, and a puppy and let’s not forget the ever alluding “white picket fence.” “WAKE UP!” it’s just a dream because slowly but surely the dynamics of this urban “Romeo & Juliet” love affairs takes on a life of umbrageous affairs involving drugs, gangsters, top officials and police officers involved in the shadiness of the underground. Sandra’s “Romeo” is a self-made ghetto entrepreneur who holds powerful trump cards in his back pocket. Sandra’s life quickly snowballs into an ever ending battle of life vs. death.
The Mouse that Roared is filled with action-packed twists and turns, the reader will eagerly anticipate turning to the next page. The reader will ride the emotional rollercoaster of cheering, cursing, praying, crying, and hoping the characters gets what’s coming to them. The Mouse that Roared is an urban “fictional” novel however, author Dwayne Murray, Sr. writes about real life situations that takes place on the streets of New York City and he is sure on some levels are reminiscent of the readers’ experiences. Get ready for an excellent read!
