Self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet displayed the captivating historical fiction book “Emma: Heritage Series – Volume I” by Susan Diane Black Blackmon at the 2023 LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience on January 27-30, 2023, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA.

“Emma: Heritage Series - Volume I” is a straightforward Cinderella-type story made utterly engaging thanks to its focus on love, family, and hatred. The former two themes play an essential role in the story by acting as the unbreakable cord that connects the protagonists and antagonists.

The book’s charming storyline focuses on a romance that was predicted early on but was at first misunderstood. In this story, the Cinderella is Emma, whom the author based on one of her great-grandmothers. The youngest of eighteen children, Emma was about three years old when their mother died.

“Emma” is a Cinderella-type story unlike any other. “The only thing missing was the evil stepsisters,” said the author. “Her real-life stepsister was a lovely woman who would quickly tell the truth about how horrible her mother was.”

Have a good read of Emma’s Cinderella story. Get a copy of Susan Diane Black Blackmon’s “Emma: Heritage Series - Volume I” on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Who knew that a junior high school history assignment would turn into a passion for genealogy, which has turned into a love of writing historical fiction stories?

In 1976, the assignment was to write an autobiography and fill out a pedigree chart; thus began “The Tale of the Beautiful Princess or Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Me, But Were Afraid to Ask” and 46-plus years of researching Susan Diane Black Blackmon’s family.

Countless hours of her “MamMaw” and “Great-Aunt Ruth” sharing the stories of her ancestors have resulted in the publication of two sets of genealogy books on her Boultinghouse and Driver lines. A third set on the John Gray Parks family is currently in the works.

In 2022, she was privileged to bring to life the dream of her late cousin, Joe Lee Mankins, through the publication of the book “The Daniel Brown Boultinghouse and Mary Jane Russell Civil War Letters.” The book tells a story of love and heartbreak through the written words of the main characters and includes images of many original letters, some more than 171 years old. Each image has a transcript for easier reading.

After many years of research, Susan Diane has a wealth of stories and anecdotes in her mind. With a “nudge” from her older sister, some of those stories wandered onto the page and became “Emma.”

Based on her maternal great-grandmother and some of the events in her life, much of the story is fiction, but there are threads of reality woven throughout Emma’s story.

If anyone had told her that she would one day share the stories of her ancestors through fiction, she would have laughed. Yet here she is, living her sister’s dream for her.
