On August 21st, this premiere of ‘Seize the King’ was a success! Often, premieres are riddled with undulating challenges. This performance flowed well with only minor difficulties … Congratulations!
J.R. Strayve, Jr.
Braxton’s Century came to life after Strayve suffered an accident in 2016 and was only able to work part-time as a financial planner for an extended period. Fatigued and weakened by illness, he passed out while working out at a gym where he regularly exercised. After the accident it took a few months to regain his strength, so he would go for long walks to exercise and refocus his thoughts. He says that during those walks in the inspiring beauty of San Diego where he lives, he reverted to the “daydreaming, window-gazing, wildly imaginative” days of his youth which gave birth to Prince Braxton.
Strayve’s favorite person history is Winston Churchill who was born in 1875. His familiarity with the time-period, vivid imagination, and literary license determined that Prince Braxton would be born in 1860. This Epic novel chronicles Prince Braxton’s life through and up until his 100th birthday. The character is brilliant, strikingly handsome, and lives a life robust with travel, wealth, intrigue, love, and loss. Early readers have compared Strayve’s storytelling to that of multiple bestselling author Ken Follett.
