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! 

Cher Turns Back Time With Fierce Outfit at MTV Video Music Awards

If you read the post below you know I've been a busy bee, well a busy Cocoa Fly. I'm still unpacking and settling in my new spot, which I will reveal to you very soon. But I had to take a break from the boxes because I heard the OG (original goddess) of fierceness herself, Cher, made an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight. Like many of the Cher costumes we love from back in day, this outfit only took one spool of thread to make. It looks like a throwback to If I Could Turn Back Time video. Not bad for a woman in her mid- 60's. I know Cher has had some help from a scalpel to slow down the aging process. But I don't care. She's Sixty and Sexy. I love a woman who lives by her own rules and Cher does just that. Girl, you go.
