Tolson has been celebrated recently for being named a Beverly Hills Book Awards Finalist for his novel, Chaos Chronicles Book 1: Zephyr The West Wind. 

“Your book,” said Ellen Reid, president & CEO of the Beverly Hills Book Awards in announcing the selection, “truly embodies the excellence that this award was created to celebrate, and we salute you and your fine work.”

Writing, however, is only one of Tolson’s many interests, talents and enterprises. He is also the CEO of RJTIO and divisions RJTINC, Forever Trust Charity and RL Infinity International, president of Sages of Essence and Living Writers, and the author of the Chaos Chronicles series.

Although not open to the public, the 19-year-old fantasy genre author and international charity founder will visit two South Florida schools, Highland Oaks Middle School on Monday, May 20, and Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High on Tuesday, May 21.

The public is invited on Monday, May 20, 5 – 7 p.m., when Tolson visits the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum in Delray Beach, to sign his novel and answer questions about his multi-faceted enterprise, as part of the museum’s cultural and educational outreach programming.

Admission is $10. For more information on Tolson’s appearance at the Spady Museum, 170 N.W. Fifth Ave., call 561-279-8883 or visit spadymuseum.org
