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! 

Absolutely Gorgeous

Obama hosts Indian Prime Minister Singh for State Dinner at White House


I love the romantic gaze between our First Lady and President. She looks good, he looks good. Hmmm, wonder what they're thinking? I bet there was a Luther Vandross CD playing in the President's private quarters later that night. ;) What a gorgeous couple.

First Lady Michelle Obama looked stunning at Tuesday night's State Dinner. India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife, Gursharan Kaur were the guests of honor. Designer Naeem Khan, an Indian-American, created the dress. Khan told CNN's Larry King the dress is made of silk and crystals. Forty people worked on this beautiful handmade gown. Khan's father and grandfather design luxurious clothing in India. This is my favorite look for the First Lady so far. Thumbs up to Khan for this fashion masterpiece. Macy's needs to hook up with him so us girls who aren't on a First Lady budget can wear his clothes.

  1. She was the queen of the ball. Michelle looked absolutely stunning in her evening gown. It will be exciting to watch how she dresses for the next eight years (yes I said eight).
