Until It All Unfolds primarily concerns a young woman who endeavors to move beyond some of the events of her childhood that have defined her early years and negatively influenced her adult choices. Only by positively linking the past with the future can she successfully withstand challenges that will shake her core values of integrity and courage and thus to find love among the ashes.


As a youngster in New Orleans, Nicole (Niki) Berteaux frequently finds herself the target of her father’s anger, and his physical abuse. Fear reigns in the Berteaux household. As she lives in misery Niki somehow blossoms into a lovely young woman and finds forbidden love in the Bayou’s. But the Forces are against her—even the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans has a hand in Niki’s fate. Her brief taste of sweet love will be shattered by a horrific event that changes her life forever.


She perseveres and somehow escapes from her shame to venture to New York in order to carve an identity for herself. It is in New York that it soon becomes evident that certain patterns from her childhood will now threaten her future.


In the conclusion of Until It All Unfolds, Niki closes another chapter of her life leaving yet another romantic relationship behind before it has the opportunity to prevent her from achieving her goals of just a ray of happiness.


Covering a range of topics from racism, family dysfunction and mysticism to the true meaning of peace and love this narrative explores the nuances of the human condition. The story is designed to inspire the reader to strive toward one’s dreams no matter where your present situation and station in life finds you.
