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! 

It's My Birthday!

This week I'm celebrating my birthday, but mildly because I'm still recuperating from a car accident. Which is why I haven't blogged at all this week.
Life is too short and I try to celebrate it every day. Even if it mean just dancing in my living room. One of my favorite tracks is Madonna's "Holiday." And for me my birthday is my own personal holiday. A day to thank God that I'm still here.
