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! 

I'm On BBC Radio 5 Live TONIGHT With Phil Williams

UPDATE: Listen to my interview here

The final episode of "The People v. O.J. Simspon" aired in the U.K. last night. During the show I live tweeted during PST and EST. I received so many supportive messages from across the pond that I decided to do some tweeting during episode 10 in the U.K. I received so many Tweets, including from Europeans in other countries. Somehow word got to BBC Radio 5 Live Host Phil Williams.

I'll be on his show tonight, around 11pm or 11:30pm U.K. time. This is my first, international broadcast interview. I'm excited! I spent time in London and Belfast 11 years ago, and had an amazing time.
 I'm happy my first international interview is in the U.K. Tune in and spread the word to your friends and family overseas!
