NAGICO Congratulates Tarsa Blaize on Book Release
Secret Wounds’, the first novel of the hand of Tarsa Blaize, has now been released. An avid reader from the age of eight, Tarsa discovered her passion for writing in secondary school. Although encouraged by her literature teacher, it wasn’t until 1999 that she decided to fully explore her talent while taking part in a ‘Christmas Story’ for Radio St. Lucia.
“Since that experience I decided that I wanted to be a writer,” Tarsa explained. “The draft of ‘Secret Wounds’ took me four and a half months to write; however, the entire process from draft to publishing took about a year.”
Tarsa says her new novel will not be a one-hit wonder as she is already thinking about a sequel. “This was just a taste and I have so much more to write,” she said. “There will definitely be more books coming from my hand in the future.”
When asked if she had any words of encouragement to share with her potential readers or other aspiring writers she said, “Fear and rejection of failure are deterrents which hinder us from achieving our goals. I would say that within all of us lies the power to reach our full potential. Allow your inner self to break free and flourish!”
‘Secret Wounds’ tells the story of a Saint Lucian man, Sean, who finds himself saddled with an unwanted burden. Unsure of whom to turn to, he makes a decision which threatens to crumble all that he has worked for. With his wife Abigale in a sea of shadows and his daughter Suzie struggling with the onset of puberty, things are not always as they seem. ‘Secret Wounds’ is now available in ebook format on Amazon.
Tarsa works at NAGICO Insurances in the Medical Department. General Manager of NAGICO, Ms. JnBaptiste, and staff at the company applaud Tarsa on her personal achievement and hope the community at large will show their support to this new local writer.
