LaToya S. Watkins, author of In Love with Losers: My first preschool teacher is whoÂ planted the seed forÂ my love ofÂ reading.Â My parents never hadÂ to push me to participate in reading programsÂ in school after that teacherÂ cracked open Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak on my first day of school.Â When my mom picked me up from school and asked about my first day, I told her all aboutÂ Max’s adventure. My mom encouraged my reading from that day on. From coverless books at garage sales to orders placed at school book fairs, I could count on her to keep a book in my hands. Time and exposure grew that love for reading, and I can never thank my mom enough forÂ encouraging me to read.
My forthcoming novel, In Love with Losers, is a book about some of the joys and pains that come with the evolution of the human spirit.Â As my characters wrestle withÂ issues that range from what they believe to be love with losers to questioning who the real losers are, you will easily relate to their everyday strugglesÂ in success and defeat in relationships and life in general. MyÂ book takes the African American novel and embeds crisis and historyÂ to createÂ a beauty inÂ reality that can and will be appreciated.
