Judyth Piazza Interviews Bill Cosby's Nephew Braxton A. Cosby on The American Perspective

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

 

If you guessed that Braxton A. Cosby is any relation to Bill Cosby, well, you`re right. He is indeed the nephew of the famed comedic legend. A good set of genes and DNA can work wonders nowadays, and the Cosby legacy continues to live on. In fact, Braxton shares many traits of the philanthropic icon. Those familiar attributes of discipline, strong work ethic, creativity and love for learning, a flair for communicating through words, and of course, storytelling, - that we have all grown to love about Bill Cosby - have matriculated into this young gifted talent.

Braxton says that his uncle was more than an inspiration; he was an example of how hard word, dedication and a steady reluctance to give up on dreams no matter what negative influences and critiques may come your way, can pay off in the end.

Growing up in a single parent home presented all types of challenges for Braxton; from seeking father appropriate male role models to avoiding trouble in the streets,  Braxton`s mother and grandmother had their work cut out for them. But one summer, a near death experience off the coast of Brazil gave him perspective and he has never looked back, trying desperately to carve out his own path of achievement.

Fervent prayer accomplishes much though, as Braxton was indeed able to advance past life`s challenges and taste success in many ways. A physical therapist by background, Braxton received his Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate from the University of Miami. While in college, Braxton followed in his uncle`s footsteps by competing in Track and Field running the intermediate and high hurdles, as well as countless record setting relays. A healthy dose of science and physiology takes a toll on the human mind, and Braxton`s fascination of science grew into an obsession of Science Fiction; especially for stories told on the grandiose scale.  

On one unassuming Sunday, this self-proclaimed romantic decided to pursue a calling from God (one he calls his Isaiah moment) and tagged a new genre of writing; Sci-Fance- mixing science fiction and romance. Now, Braxton is a published author with Firefly Publishing and Entertainment of the Young Adult Romance, Sci-fi novel, The Star-Crossed Saga: Protostar (the first in a trilogy). Braxton also wrote the foreword for the collaborative Christian novel Seven Deadly Sins: A Novel Collaboration. Braxton is a dreamer with a vision of continuously evolving and maximizing the untapped potential of the human spirit. He has two daughters ages 9 and 4. He believes that everyone should pursue joy that surpasses understanding and live each day as if it were the last.

Braxton also cares for troop of 17 adventurous African Cichlids, who teach him daily how the dependency and trust they have for him as a caregiver, parallels God`s unchanging provision for his life. He is currently busy working on the sequel to Protostar, after recently finishing the first book in his new series; a powerful inspirational adventure that follows the lives of three young men that are recruited by a special group whose mission is to defend the weak and hunt down evil.
