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! 

Switch It Up!
Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival

"Switch It Up" is a Cocoa Fly series encouraging women to step out of the box, break it down and put it in the recycle bin. It's time to have fun and live it up!


This week I'll be covering the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival for Cocoa Fly. Yay! The festival runs from Oct 11-Oct 16 at Mann Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA. Steven Spielberg and Quentin Teratino aren't the only people out there making good films. This week Switch It Up and look at movies from Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Brazil, etc. I've said this before, ladies there's a whole world out there. Step out of your comfort zone and explore it. Going to a film festival is a small step that can be a lot of fun. For more info click here. Adios.
