Debut novel “Suicide Diaries” has brought author Ebonee Monique recognition from the African American Literary Show. The group nominated her as Breakout Author of the Year.
Monique, the granddaughter of the late Howard and Margaret Curle of Hodgenville, released the book in February.
“My initial reaction, of course, was disbelief,” said Monique. “I couldn’t wrap my mind around being nominated for a national award and being on a roster with such experienced and respected veterans – all for doing something I love.”
