Zora Takes Over Silver Threading


Hi Everyone,

My name is Zora Langston and Colleen has invited me to do a takeover post on her blog today. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am the creation of Author, Lisa W. Tetting. She calls me a character, and I am a nine-year old girl who lives in a book called, “The Mistreatment of Zora Langston.” My creator did an interview with me, and I wanted to share it with you all. Here goes:


LWT: Who is your favorite person in the world?

ZL: That’s easy, my daddy, Mr. Barry Langston is my favorite person in the whole world. He died earlier this year so I hope that counts because he’s still my favorite.


LWT: What do you want to be when you grow up?

ZL: I want to be a writer like Zora Neale Hurston. She is my daddy’s favorite writer. He used to read her book to me before he died.


LWT: If you could do or say anything to anyone in the world without getting in trouble, what would it be?

ZL: I would tell my mother, Teresa Langston, that I forgive her for killing my daddy and ask her why she doesn’t love me. I tried to be a good girl, but there was just no pleasing her.


LWT: What did you do on your summer vacation?

ZL: Let’s see….. I went to a summer reading program at the local library; I attended VBS, that’s Vacation Bible School, but I didn’t get to finish. Something bad happened to me that I don’t want to talk about. Then I spent some time with my Aunt and Uncle at Myrtle Beach. That was the best part because I got to bury my uncle in the sand.


LWT: I’m sorry something bad happened to you and I hope you’re alright. I noticed you spend a lot of time with adults, but you never mentioned any kids around your age. What do you and your friends like to do?

ZL: Well, I don’t really have any friends my own age. The other kids don’t seem to like me very much so I spend most of my time alone, reading.


LWT: Well, how about siblings? Do you have any brothers and sisters?

ZL: Yes. I have a big sister and a big brother. My sister hates the sight of me. All we do is fight and my brother acts like I don’t exist. He plays basketball and that is the only thing he cares about.


LWT: That sounds very lonely for you. How do you survive?

ZL: I am alone, but never lonely. I have all of my friends in my books to read about and they take me on journeys all over the world. I never get bored with them; they like it when I come around. I also pray to God when I need help because my Grandma Rose told me He will never leave me.


LWT: Well it seems like you have it all figured out. I hope to see more of you. Will you hang around in case our readers have more questions for you?

ZL: Sure. I will be here all day because school is out today.


There you have it. If you all have more questions for me to answer, feel free to leave a comment below and I will answer them as soon as possible. If you are intrigued by my story, please be sure to purchase the book “The Mistreatment of Zora Langston” available on Amazon. It would make my creator very happy if you would follow her blog and on social media: http://rebirthoflisa.wordpress.com ; Facebook – rebirthoflisa; Twitter and Instagram – @Rebirthoflisa.

PS – Here is what a few critics are saying about me:






  1. Your story made me pause, Zora. I had a friend who was so accomplished, yet there was an underlying sadness that she would never address. I found her at a moment of stress at work, hiding out in a back office in a fetal position, rocking herself and mumbling. She opened up and told me why. As a child, she had witnessed her father shooting/killing her mother. I could not imagine that kind of horror. I am so sorry if this is more than fiction for you. Sincerely, Van

    1. Thank you Van. You seem really nice and I hope your friend finds something to help her with her nightmares. I did not like my head shrinker, but since she is a grown up she might like it. My aunt and uncle helped me get through my bad times by surrounding me with love. It also helped me to pray. Don’t worry though, I am just a figment of my creator’s imagination. Thanks for stopping by!
