ADDICT Introduction

Updated on April 17, 2011

 

Greetings fellow Hubbers, please allow me to share with you a copyrighted work of fiction that I began working on in 2002. ADDICT is a story of Keith Blackwell; a man of God who fell into deep darkess, and through his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, he found the strength to get back up!

ADDICT was inspired by the biblical truth “For a just [man] falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” Proverbs 24:16.

Due to the length of the project I will submit in an excerpted format, beginning with the logline (synopsis) thank you for your time & may Almighty God bless you all!

ADDICT LOGLINE:

Keith Blackwell is a highly successful high school basketball coach and entrepreneur with addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex, power, money, and rage. He struggles to find redemption, and fulfill his destiny as a powerful man of God.

Blackwell’s addictions cause him to delve deep into Philadelphia’s world of organized crime. He knowingly formed a business partnership with his childhood adversary, Tyrone “T” Johnson, a man that has grown to be the epitome of evil. It is this pact with Satan that causes Keith to turn a “blind” eye in regards to a brutal murder of a young reporter, and his pregnant wife. This act of utter greed and selfishness puts Keith in jeopardy of eternal damnation.

ADDICT SYNOPSIS:

       Keith Blackwell is the head coach of the national powerhouse, Northwest High School, boy’s basketball team. Blackwell is also Chief of Operations of an overnight sensation, GAMETIME BASKETBALL GEAR, an athletic equipment/hip-hop generation outfitter. Blackwell’s “partners in crime” (literally) are two men that rate well beyond the old adage of “high school buddies.”  Michael John “M.J.” Scatterwood and Jacob “Jake the Snake” Weinstein are Keith Blackwell’s “brothers.” These three men quite simply love each other.  The “Three Musketeers,” which is how they like to refer to themselves, have built an empire in seven years that has them on track to become a public entity on the NYSE before the end of the new-year.

 Their rapid rise to power has caught the attention of Pete Kowalski, a young, up and coming sports reporter at the PHILADELPHIA JOURNAL newspaper. Kowalski’s investigative obsession of GAMETIME would prove to be a fatal mistake for young Pete and his pregnant with twins wife, Darcy.  

Upon learning of the Kowalski’s double homicide and the deep involvement M.J. has in it; Keith plummets into emotional and spiritual turmoil. He realizes that he can never do the right thing in regards to his knowledge of the murder as long as his long time nemesis T Johnson walks the earth. Johnson is the “silent partner” of GAMETIME BASKETBALL GEAR. T acting on information that M.J. released to him, orchestrates the Kowalski’s execution. Blackwell believes that when the evil Johnson is murdered in a drug war against the fearless Chucky Graves, that he, his wife and their children are finally free.  Keith Blackwell is now faced with the toughest challenge of his life, he must let go of his ties to GAMETIME, his “brothers” and the lavish lifestyle he and his obsessively passionate wife Bonnie have become accustomed to. Sadly M.J., a young man born to extreme wealth and privilege finds the demise of GAMETIME, and the dismantling of the “Three Musketeers” unacceptable. Jake, Vice President of GAMETIME, and an excellent criminal attorney strongly suggest that M.J. flee the United States for fear that he will be prosecuted for conspiracy to commit murder in regards to the Kowalski’s homicide.  Michael John “M.J.” Scatterwood’s response to that suggestion was to “blow his own brains out” in front of Keith and Jake with a semi-automatic pistol.  M.J.’s suicide will remain with Keith, and Jake for the rest of their lives.
