Enjoy this reblog for Mara Prose Monday!!
Dedicated to my best friend and touchstone, Nicky W., in celebration of not only our friendship but her birthday month. Thank you for all you do and your willingness to go where I go.
It started with a little girl in tears and it’s been thirty years
A bond was formed that day and remained despite some strays
No matter where we are in life, you are always willing to sacrifice
To go where I go, help when I need and encourage when my heart bleeds
You are the wind beneath my wings
You encourage me to flourish and grow
You keep me grounded and on my flow
You accept all that is me, and help to make life more carefree
You have nursed me through some hard times and celebrated the best of times
Thank you for being you
Thank you for being true
Thank you for being not…

We had such an amazing show this past Saturday with actors Benny Bernard and Roy Coulter. They are two very talented gentlemen and it was an honor having them on the show. Please see their biographies below to learn about all their current endeavors and listen to the rebroadcast via the link below.
Benjamin Bernard Jr. is an actor from Brooklyn, NY whose experience specializes in dramatic and action films. During the past few years, his roles have gained momentum in variety as well as depth, which has made him a popular talent for local productions. While Benjamin has plans to try modeling and singing, his real aspirations lie in film/TV for dramatic and anti-hero roles. His work ethic has always been woven with pride as he invests all of his passion into the projects he has both starred in and worked behind the scenes on. In the future, Benjamin would like to one day own his own production company. He enjoys traveling, reading, meeting different people, and singing in the shower.
Roy was born at Landstuhl Army Medical Center, Germany to parents Roy Gene Coulter and Doris Heidemarie Ingeborg Waske. His father was serving overseas with the Air Force when he met his mother during his tour of duty. He primarily grew up all over the United States while his father continued to serve. Roy was an active child, always participating in team sports and activities such as the Drama Club in high school. He earned his Eagle Scout Award in 1982 and graduated high school in 1984 from Rossville, Georgia. While in high school, Roy was also involved with Air Force JROTC program which he served as Cadet Commander during his senior year.
After graduation, Roy enlisted with the Tennessee Air National Guard in Nashville. He did this for about a two years when he realized his passion for active duty service was stronger than a part-time commitment. Roy went on active duty with the Air Force in 1986, serving in the position of Security Police which later became Security Forces. He would eventually complete 20 years of active duty service; earned the rank of E-7 Master Sergeant, and retired in 2006 with a total of 21 years combined.
It was in 2006 when his love for acting resurfaced after his Drama Club days and some acting seminars under his belt. He went to an open casting call for the part of a football referee in We Are Marshall in 2006, but was chosen to play the role of a National Guard troop at the aircraft accident scene. Roy would continue filming this project as a Game Photographer several months later.
From there, Roy would go on to play the role as a football referee in USA Networks, Necessary Roughness in 2012; Season 2, Episodes 12 and 16. He took his football officiating talents and earned a part in The Game (BET) for Season 9, Episode 10 in 2015. Roy appeared in the new television series on FX’s, Atlanta, as a gun shopper and a basketball referee. From there, he played a recurring role as a Secret Service Agent on Tyler Perry’s production of The Haves and Have Nots, Season 5 and he also played a Kingdom Guard in Season 7 and 8 of The Walking Dead.
Roy returned to the silver screen as a bar patron in the Beech Hill Films production of One Last Thing (2017) and as an FBI Agent for Endurance Media production of Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the Whitehouse (2017). Other projects that Roy appeared on includes, Fate of the Furious, Spiderman-The Homecoming, Love Simon, Logan Lucky, Superstition, and several independent feature movie roles.
Roy is dedicated and committed to all his roles by displaying enthusiasm and being appreciative of all the opportunities afforded him. He is married and has 4 grown children and 2 younger living at home.
Until next time,
Darnell Streat – Emperor’s Cut Cigars www.emperors-cut.com/
Nicky and I had a great discussion with Darnell about his new endeavors. Darnell has cultivated a unique brand of cigars, that will be for sale in July. A lot of thought and energy has been put into creating a unique cigar for those who enjoy a smooth, sensual taste that will relax you and take you away from all your problems. Indulging in this cigar is like indulging in the rarest diamonds, it is game changing and a stand-alone brand. Darnell’s product is so enticing, it made Nicky and I want to try it when they go on sale; and neither one of us are smokers. Books, Wine and Emperor’s Cut Cigar – now doesn’t that sound heavenly. Listen to the entire interview via the link below.
Dwayne Jones – Digital Graphic Artist https://www.facebook.com/dwayne.b.jones
We were happy to welcome Dwayne back to the show to discuss his first art exhibition in New York on July 22nd. Dwayne is a very talented artist and deserves this opportunity to display his talent. We encourage all to visit Dwayne’s Facebook page and purchase his stimulating pieces of work. Nicky & I will try our best to make it to the exhibition and go live so all my Prosers can experience this upcoming fabulous display of art.
My poetry memoir has somehow beat the Davenports onto Amazon. The eBook and Paperback are available right now and if you have Amazon Kindle Unlimited, it is completely FREE!
I initially paid a consultant to format the Journey to Mara Prose for Amazon, but it was nowhere near my standards. So the perfectionist in me stayed up all Saturday night completely reformatting the entire book from scratch. I added new poetry and even revised some of my existing poetry to include a fresh take on my most popular poems.
I am very proud of this work and it allows my Prosers into the most vulnerable and raw side of my personality; a part of me I generally do not allow anyone into. Please purchase your copy and support this second endeavor of mine.
As for Book 1 of the Davenports, Amazon is predicting it should be ready around June 21st. In the meantime, Nicky W. is looking for a new LOCAL printer since we had a very bad experience with the New York-based one.
Enjoy Mara Prose Monday and thank you for all the love, support and most of all your continued patience with the trials and tribulations of the Davenports! I promise it will be well worth the wait!!
Until next time,
It’s Mara Prose Monday!!
Enjoy the re-broadcast of my Virtual Women’s Empowerment Conference!!

Mara Prose Announcements
Prosey’s Corner May 18th, 2018

Dwayne Jones – Digital Artist
Dwayne is a rare combination of discipline, dedication, and self-education in regards to his artistry. He began his career as a fun past time, practiced in stolen moments of free time from his growing personal training business. With more and more demands for his digital artwork, Dwayne knew he had another business in the making. He finds inspiration in his everyday life and spends countless hours perfecting his craft. His art is unique and he enjoys delaying the gratification of each piece by waiting a few days after a project is completed before releasing it to the public. The pieces that do make it to the public eye are ones Dwayne wholeheartedly believes in and only ones that prove eye-catching. This method obviously works since it was one of his designs that initially caught the Art eye of Mara Prose in a Facebook group.
If you have any interest in purchasing his stellar work, please visit his website to submit your request. Thank you, Dwayne, for being a part of Prosey’s Corner! We love your talent!
Actor Lane Lovegrove is a jack of many trades – but his biggest passion in life is being a father. This is probably why he gravitates more towards the “Dad” roles and has been able to make a successful acting career. Residing near Charlotte, North Carolina, Lane began to pursue acting in his mid-thirties. Once he decided to treat it more as a business opportunity, he began to book several commercials, movies, and tv shows.
Lane has been fortunate enough to work with Channing Tatum, with the cast of Homeland and on the hit tv series Banshee. When he has spare time, he enjoys mentoring other actors and encouraging them to pursue their goals in the industry. In the very near future, he plans to start his own blog specifically for fathers.
With an indie film and a new episode on Investigation Discovery, called Silencer, Lane continues to pave his own way towards success. We enjoyed having Lane on Prosey’s Corner and we cannot wait to have him back on the show very soon.
Until next time,
