1) What is your story? (ie, where are you from and so on)
Hi, I am Sonjy Nyletti Bambi Davis Allen. My name is Arabic Hindu and Disney... meaning intelligent, pride and sweet, it's as unique and wonderful as God created me to be.
I am a southern bell from a small loving town of Chester, SC, it is 45 minutes SW of Charlotte, NC and 50 minutes NW of Columbia SC so we had/have quick access to "city life."
I am the youngest of three girls, no brothers, and I have been blessed with a wonderful host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. I love truly my family and friends.
I came to Greensboro, NC to attend NC A&T, fell in love with a football player name John Allen as well as one of the greatest church/ministries in the world, Evangel Fellowship, got married, had two beautiful hilarious kids, bought a house and the rest is history.
2) What influenced you to write this short story?
The creator of this blog! LOL We are always talking about our talents and gifts and EOP challenged me to write my thoughts/stories down and have them featured on his blog to see what the world would think of them.
I kept putting it off until one day I said, "I am going to do story wherever it sinks or swim." That's how "Playing the Game" was created. It is fictional take on real life encounters from friends/family conversations and personal experiences.
My motto is "Real Life Is Stranger Than Fiction!"
3) Is it possible this short story will be turned into a full length book?
I would love for it too! Playing The Game has taken on a life of it's own, I even dream about the characters.
4) If your short story was to be transformed into a series or movie, who would you want to play the role of the characters?
Terrance Howard- Marcus "Cat" Jones
Terry Crews- Henry Lucas
Fonzworth Bentley- David Perkins
Nia Long- Deb Williams
Kimora Lee- Shannon Jones
Jennifer Lewis- Mama Pansy
5) What projects do you have coming up next?
Personally, I have a Princess birthday party coming up in two weeks. LOL Professionally, with my business JayJon Entertainment and Communications, will be promoting the "Liv I Will" Foundation Walk with Relay For Life in Alabama, producing a SC graduation celebration, wedding reception, and youth event, plans in the summer to partnership with 1081creations to showcase indie recording artist, poets, etc and being available for whatever God has in store for us to make into reality! God bless!
