HURRICANE KATRINA SURVIVOR!


Background Information

MY NAME IS PHYLLIS MONTANA-LEBLANC. I WAS FEATURED IN SPIKE LEE'S HBO FILM DOCUMENTARY; "WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE." FROM THIS, A HUGE POPULARITY AROSE FOR ME AND SPIKE LEE HELPED ME TO OBTAIN A BOOK DEAL WITH PUBLISHER, SIMON AND SCHUSTER IN NEW YORK AND AN AGENT, WILLIAM-MORRIS TALENT AGENCY, ALSO IN NEW YORK. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A WRITER OF POETRY SINCE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND AS I GREW SO DID MY WRITING WHICH IS MOSTLY ABOUT LOVE AND PEACE AND TOGETHERNESS. MY BOOK/MEMOIR, "NOT JUST THE LEVEES BROKE" MY STORY DURING AND AFTER HURRICANE KATRINA." FOREWORD BY: SPIKE LEE IS A FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF SURVIVING THE WORST NATURAL/MAN-MADE DISASTER IN U.S. HISTORY. HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR SPIKE LEE'S ATTENTION TO WHAT WE ENDURED HERE IN NEW ORLEANS, A GREAT DEAL OF THE COUNTRY AND WORLD WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT IT. AND MY STORY WOULD PROBABLY NOT HAVE BEEN TOLD. MY MOTIVATIONS BEHIND WRITING HAS ALWAYS TO ALLOW OTHERS TO LEARN FROM ME, MY MISTAKES AND MY VICTORIES.
