Cary, N.C., April 6, 2014–
Author Suzette Hinton was a featured author at the Fifth Annual African American Literary Tea at the historic Page Walker Hotel in Cary, North Carolina.  One of three authors featured, this local author shared the pivotal moments that led to her self discovery and the authoring of her first book, The Sound of My Life, launched a year ago this exact day.   

"I'm a church girl," says Author Suzette. "But my transformation didn't happen from the Bible.  It was a book laying on my sister's bed that changed my life."  It is no wonder that she, herself, would write books that speak for those who, like her, didn't fit though she so desperately wanted to belong.  Her quick wit and liberating take on life captivated this sold out gathering of fellow authors, writers, book club members and cultural enthusiasts from far and near. 

Much anticipated is the release of her new book, The Sound of My Soul.  This second in what she now calls her Sound Series  takes the reader deeper into the soul behind the life.  Says this student of Sound, "It's the discerner.  It lets you know if you're okay or not.  Most folks don't like this part of them -- put it in a box and push it to the side -- but without it, we can't live.  We can't feel alive!"
