Nubia DuVall Wilson Author of The Survivors Club

Nubia DuVall Wilson Author of The Survivors Club

Nubia DuVall Wilson, author of The Survivors Club, came to the studio to tell #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino about her book and its creation.

DuVall Wilson first came up with the idea for The Survivors Club after having a dream in 2011. In the dream, a group of strangers were trapped in a room, and one-by-one they would be removed from the room to take on the life of a boy. She though the concept was a cool, so she wrote a short story, which she named “Phobia”. In 2016, she began to go through her old journals and writings. She came across “Phobia”, made some changes and additions, and published it as a novel titled The Survivors Club in 2017.

Nubia is a child sexual abuse survivor. In 2016, she was reflecting on some of the trauma she suffered from; so, while reviewing the story that became The Survivors Club, she decided to update and expand it. She hopes her book will give other survivors hope and make them realize that they’re not alone.

DuVall Wilson describes The Survivors Club as “a supernatural thriller” with some mystery. She said the book isn’t “dark” nor “heavy”, despite its influences, because she wants to “normalize the conversation … by creating content that’s approachable.”

Whenever someone purchases The Survivors Club, money is donated to Stop Child Predators and New York Center for Children, charities that aid children who have been abused.

Nubia also founded Cielo Consulting, a consulting company that helps businesses market their brands. Cielo Consulting is her full-time job, but she’s also working on a TV pilot for The Survivors Club.

“It’s nice to be able to have these little side projects,” DuVall Wilson said.

Nubia is coming together again with #HipNJ, and will be speaking at a Trinitas Peace of Mind Campaign panel on mental wellness in Bloomingdale’s Short Hills Sept 26. This will feature 3 other speakers who will be discussing different mental wellness topics and how their lives can relate. They will also have exclusive RE/UP t-shirts on sale with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Peace of Mind Campaign.
