This year, I enthusiastically started writing my book on November 1st, right along with the other thousands of Nano 2017 participants.  My story:  “Lights Out at the Moulin Rouge” is a novel based on the historical events surrounding the first Las Vegas racially integrated casino.

Reality through Fiction

I decided to cover this important topic in a unique and creative way.  I wrote a work of fiction, based on historical events.  Readers get a glimpse of reality through the use of fiction.

To this day, with so much speculation surrounding why the bustling casino went bankrupt in a few short months, many view it as a mystery.  As with any unexplained mystery from the past, there are countless theories as to the reason why the casino closed.  Between racial tension, politics and mob corruption, some people believe the 1955 casino was never given a fair chance.  In “Lights Out at the Moulin Rouge,” April is one of those people.


April Mae March is a young black freelance writer and blogger living in Los Angeles.  She’s always been intrigued by the mystery surrounding the Las Vegas Moulin Rouge Casino.  She’s even compiled a thick folder full of related notes and facts over the years   In pursuit of her longtime dream to write a book on the subject, she decides to take a road trip to Vegas and do some further research.  Her quest to dig up new details about the casino takes her on a crazy mixed up journey where she ends up fearing for her life.
