Author Pens “Seven Full Days,” a Parable of Modern Racism Reminiscent of  “A Christmas Carol.”


By Ferris Shelton

Springfield, Massachusetts (home of the NBA Hall of Fame)


In 1998, after working for Hasbro/Milton Bradley for nearly 20 years, Ferris Shelton went to Ghana, Africa and visited the historical El Mina Slave Castle in 1998/99. He was inspired to write a novel about the human beings processed through that building circa 1700 CE. After 20 years of creative angst and hard work, “Seven Full Days” has been published.


“A debut novel tells the story of a rising...businessman visited by disturbing dreams of the slavery era...   Shelton writes in a descriptive prose that captures his characters’ emotional states in vivid detail:”

-Kirkus Review



A life altering change will remain still, quietly hibernating in a person for years. 

We often choose comfortable, well-established order over the disruption change will cause, thus it is seldom awakened.  But this sleeping giant could animate if affected by the right forces.


 And, if it does, what was once safely tucked away in the out-of-sight, out-of-mind compartment of our psyche can extract a heavy toll - even if aroused by innocent intentions. Unbeknownst to Jason, this day would start a process of change that sat deep within, slumbering but ready to stir
