Marc Curtis Little Releases Fourth Novel Entitled “After Obama”

marccurtislittleMarc Curtis Little, a leading author, has released his fourth novel, After Obama.   The book is an engaging, gripping account filled with intrigue. Marc fondly refers to it as the most ambitious “what if” political novel in publishing history.

After Obama is a fast-paced, emotion-packed novel about the seedy side of politics, revived romance, recycled friendships, reinvigorated criminality, and the uplifting consequences of deep spiritual challenges of what life in America could look like after President Obama leaves office. It also raises the issue of conspiracy against President Obama by both political parties,” Marc said. “It is the most ambitious ‘what if’ political novel in publishing history and I believe it is a must-read by anyone who is looking at the future of America.”

Marc is no novice to the communications industry. He has worn many hats, having worked as a radio personality, television talk show host, political consultant, public relations and marketing counselor and community servant. The award-winning mass communications veteran is now a published author and a social media evangelist.

Novels previously written by Marc include Don’t Blink When God Calls (2008, Infinity Publishing), the Indieobama-bymarcuscurtislittle Excellence Award-winning Angels in the Midst (2010, Infinity Publishing), and the Next Generation Indie Book Award-winning Magnificent Redemption (2012, CreateSpace/MLPR Books).

In addition to these roles, Marc also hosts a weekend gospel radio show, works as a substitute teacher, and is a part-time commercial and stage actor. He had a speaking role in the Emmy award-winning (eleven) HBO movie Recount, appeared in television commercials and print ads in Florida and Georgia, and played in the Jacksonville, Florida productions of The Color Purple: The Musical (Old Mister), Fences (Gabriel) and A Soldier’s Play (Sergeant Vernon Waters).

Marc Curtis Little was born on September 8, 1951 to the late Clara Little and Matthew Little in Newark, New Jersey. He was formally educated in the Newark public school system at Peshine Avenue School and Weequahic High School, where he earned seven varsity sports letters and academic honors. Marc learned survival skills in his blue collar neighborhood situated in the South Ward of New Jersey’s largest city. After graduating high school in 1969, Marc moved to California to attend Los Angeles City College, from where he received a degree in Broadcast Communications.

Marc’s professional career began in 1972 when he accepted a job in Jacksonville, Florida. His tenure included on-air and management positions in radio and television in four states, and ownership of a nationally recognized public relations company for 20 years. As a broadcaster and programming executive, he earned seven Billboard Magazine awards, as well as honors from Black Radio Exclusive Magazine and Radio & Records Magazine. Marc was recognized by the Public Relations Society of America with two President’s Achievement Awards for his landmark work as vice chairman of its National Diversity Committee. As one of America’s most visible public relations counselors for three decades, Marc worked with Pepsi-Cola, Pfizer, Glory Foods, Disney World, Comcast, The Florida Lottery, Florida’s Anti-Tobacco Truth Initiative, National Basketball Association All-Star Amare’ Stoudemire, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Congressional Black Caucus, Congresswoman Corrine Brown, Republican National Committee, Florida A&M University, Edward Waters College, CBS Records and the Florida Department of Commerce.

Marc’s work as a public servant has crossed four decades. He was appointed by statewide political officials to volunteer positions on the Florida Commission on Human Relations, the Office of Faith and Community-Based Partnerships, Foundation for Florida’s Future, Florida Commission on Minority Economic and Business Development, Jacksonville Insight Committee and Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce Workforce 2000 Task Force. Marc has been honored with awards from more than 100 organizations for his work in the public sector.

Marc is a devout Christian and the father of an adult son and a teenaged daughter. He is married to the former Zaundria Mapson May. Though Marc divides his time between northern New Jersey and Florida, he maintains his membership at Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida.
