This story was told to Anthony Weathers years ago. Upon hearing it, he felt compelled to write a story based on these tragic, true events. Why Ruin Another Life is set in the 1970s in black Mississippi. It is a generational journey about how lives can be altered by an event or person. Hattie is a Black woman in her thirties who sets off a chain of events that unravel, creating a domino effect. It affects the lives of her daughter, granddaughter, and everyone around them. This one event caused a thunderstorm for generations to come, and the lessons learned were very costly.
Anthony Weathers has written numerous articles that have appeared in many publications. He has worked in the entertainment field as an actor, singer, and dancer. Because of his eclectic past in the industry, he has many interesting stories to tell, most times being a part of those stories. He weaves these stories based on true events using a poetic license which results in a new, fresh, bold, and invigorating voice in the literary world because he not only writes it, he lives it.
