My First Book 'When A Purple Rose Blooms' is Available NOW

I am beyond excited to announce that my FIRST book When a Purple Rose Blooms is available!! You can order copies directly from my publisher Nomadic Press. Order here
The book is a collection of essays and poetry about my experiences with black womanhood. There's lots of humor, pain, and love on every page. This book wrote itself. I had no intention of releasing a book of poetry and essays, but when I saw how much I've written over the last 20 years I thought, "why not?" and went for it. 
The book launch is tonight, 7pm at the Oakland Peace Center. I will be launching my book along with 6 other new writers to Nomadic Press. I'm in great, literary company. 
Thank you to every person who has read this blog over the years, attended my readings, listened to my radio stories or read my articles. Thank you for your support. I hope you enjoy the book! 

Sigma Gamma Rho Step Team Brought the HEAT to Hotlanta

My SoRHOrs did it again! The Pretty Poodle Step Team from Southern California recently won 1st place at the Atlanta Greek Picnic Step Show. The ladies took home $10 Grand. Congratulations sorors! I've been watching step shows since I was a little girl and to this day I still get hyped about them. So when my sorority wins, I have to brag a bit ;)
For those who don't know, stepping is a type of dance traditionally performed by black fraternities and sororities. The roots of the dance are from Africa. If you want to see some stepping at its finest, check out my sorority sisters of Sigma Gamma Rho below.
