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! 

Check Me Out In The Daily Mail, Marie Claire and Inside Edition.

I have been a busy bee between covering The People v. O.J. Simpson and also being covered in the media. Marie Claire and the Daily Mail both published articles about me, the blog, and O.J. trial stuff. Tonight I'll be on Inside Edition. Check your local listings.

I must say that I've been putting my journalism degree and media experience to good use!


  1. This is exciting! I'll be looking for you!

  2. I found you via one of the many stories being published on the web right now. I am enjoying your writing immensely! How proud your father must be of you!

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying my writing. My father is very proud. He's not watching the show, but he's following my writing. :)
