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! 

Cocoa Fly Women and Sexual Empowerment Series: Interracial Romance Writer Roslyn Hardy Holcomb


My favorite book by Roslyn Hardy Holcomb.
It is a MUST read. But read Rock Star first.
I’ve been fascinated with sexuality for a long time.  When I was a kid, I would stay up late after Saturday Night Live and watch Dr. Ruth. I was fascinated by her voice and charm. But then I started learning things. My mother had no idea what was going on until my nine-year-old self asked her one Sunday morning, “Hey Ma, what’s ejaculation? I heard it on Dr. Ruth.”  My mother still brings up the horror she experienced. I thought she handled it well. 

Years later in college I began researching how racism and sexism affects how black women define their sexuality.  Now I’m interested women's work that empowers other women sexually. I’ll be posting podcasts with these fascinating women for the  Cocoa Fly Women and Sexual Empowerment Series.



Writer Roslyn Hardy Holcomb



We’re getting the series started with one of my favorite authors Rosyln Hardy Holcomb. She brings the sweet and HEAT in her novels. We talk about her work and sexual pleasure.  Roslyn even says sex gets better with time. I love talking about books, race, sex and writing. This interview hits on all of these topics. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed the interview.

Roslyn’s latest novel is Milk & Honey.  Oooh girl!

Let’s get it started…

  1. Wonderful interview and I love Roslyn Hardy Holcomb, Rock Star was one of the first IR romances I ever read when I discovered there was IR romance in 2008. Her writing is awesome and so is she. I've always loved that she's a smart writer that doesn't insult the intelligence of her readers. Thanks for this it was great.

  2. Stress: - Keep it in mind that stress can lead to hormonal imbalance in our body, which can cause lower sexual desire.

  3. Male sexual health is not something that is very openly spoken about; this may be due to the fact that in most cultures it is unaccepted discourse.

  4. I went to a few specialists to beat the issue with the goal that I could lead a glad and ordinary life like different couples at the end of the day I didn't get any arrangement.
