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! 

How Could I Forget to Post This Special KTVU Interview?



I posted this interview all over social media but forgot to post it on my blog. Why was this interview with KTVU's Keba Arnold and Mike Mibach so special? It was my FIRST live television interview. I'm a radio girl so I always get nervous for TV interviews. With radio, I can be in my doo-rag and house slippers, but still sound good. With TV, you have to step it all the way up on image AND sound good. You only get one shot when it's live. Keba and Mike made me feel very comfortable. By the way Keba Arnold is even more gorgeous in person. Thanks to KTVU for having me. I'm very proud of this interview. Check it out.

One more thing. People have been asking me if I do public speaking. Yes! Here is a list of the things I speak about if you're interested in booking me.
