For two years Hugh Hardy Jr. has been spending much of his spare time writing his debut novel about a black character's unlikely rise from unknown college student to become president of the United States. And no, it's not his take on Barack Obama’s journey to become the nation’s first black president from 2008 to 2016.

Hardy will discuss his new book, Maysa Brown: Rise to Power, on Friday, November, 9, 10:00 a.m., during a book signing at the Powderly Branch Library where he works as a library assistant. Hardy self-published the book this fall. You can buy Maysa Brown online through

Maysa Brown chronicles the trials and tribulations of the main character as she rises from being a brilliant college student in Alabama to becoming the first black female president. While in college, Maysa falls in love with her professor, Michael Green.

"Professor Green is a psychic who knows her future and what path she must travel in order to get there," Hardy said. "She goes through some trials and tribulations and Michael is always there, even through a tumultuous marriage, but all of these tests will make both of them stronger."

The book is a thriller that follows how Professor Brown tries to protect his future wife from people who want to exploit his gift of fortune telling for their good. It follows the couple from dating to marriage as she gains her crowning glory: presidency of the United States.

Hardy is looking forward to following Maysa Brown's journey through future books.

"Even a sitting president can't be prepared for everything and in the closing pages of the book, one will see how tough life can be in book two," Hardy said.
