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! 

Girl Take Time for Your Mind...Get A Massage

Ladies, there are things we have to do to take care of our entire being, and that includes our minds. May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Periodically this month,  I'll post content related to  taking care of yourself.

I know some of you are stressed out because of school, the kids, your man, your woman, your crazy girlfriend who keeps calling you about  her crazy boyfriend, work, graduations, planning summer vacations, paying bills, car repairs, your health, your loved one's health, etc. I could go on.

Stress is not good for your body, your soul, nor your MIND. Here's a throwback post to when I went to the spa my first time with natural hair. I know the weekend just passed. However, I'm posting about massages today so you can make your appointment for the weekend.

Massages can be great for your mental health and getting your mind right. I can hear the spa music  right now.
