The road to Dagger in the Cup's publication was a long and winding one, with many of life's obstacles to overcome. Sometimes we must struggle, and when we do and put forth effort in a positive way, we most often are rewarded. That long and winding road fraught with obstacles led to Dagger in the Cup being a winner in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Book Awards.

Author, JB Hamilton Queen seeks to empower women, then, now and generations to come.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014

We often hear tales of how the lives of women have drastically improved, but with events such as Nigerian kidnappings, workplace discrimination and abuse, has anything really changed?

Author, JB Hamilton Queen believes there needs to be more strong female roles in popular culture. She makes a point to position young and independent women as the protagonists in all her novels.

"I believe all young women must have a positive female role model they can lean on, Queen said. "By increasing the number of female heroes we can begin to alter the negative way in which women are perceived globally."

Her newest book, "Dagger in the Cup" is a fictional thriller about a teenage heroine living in the mountains of Virginia who saves her family from an abusive stepfather. The book provides a suspenseful and exciting plot while addressing hot button issues such as women's reproductive rights, race and stereotypes.
