About The Author:
Hello, my name is Douglas Lloyd, nicknamed “The Word Smith”. I am a native Washingtonian. As a gifted all city athlete, I attended Delaware State and Howard University. In the end, I graduated with a B.S. Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1985. A product of the mean streets of Southeast Washington, I became a well-known street hustler and Narcotics Dealer, despite my formal education and rise to Admissions Director, Washington, DC Beauty Academy. In an effort to transform my life and cement a positive legacy, I turned my lifelong hobby of studying the Civil War Era into a five book series modeled after a mixed heritage family called the Douglas’s. My intentions were to make people understand we are more alike than different. My ultimate goal is to have my books made into a major motion picture funded by people from around the globe. I happen to be adored by many fans, especially those incarcerated, both male and female. I have been married for 38 years, and have 3 wonderful children, 2 step children, and 12 grandchildren. My plan is to have a Portion of each of my books sold donated to the Tom Joyner foundation to help students attend historically black colleges, and to the American Cancer Society because I am also a Cancer Survivor. If you would like to have me speak to your organization, class or address the civil war era from the black man’s unique perspective, please contact Ms. Lavonia Miller for reservations @ Lmillernewerabooks@gmail.com or email@example.com.
