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! 

Wonder Woman Is Here!

Wonder Woman movie is here and it's about time! I'm jealous of those of you who have tickets to midnight screenings. I plan on watching it in the morning. I've been waiting for this movie for 30+ years since I saw Lynda Carter spin around and become this strong, feminine being who will you beat you down if you don't act right. Wonder Woman will give you a chance to act right, but will put the smack down if need be.

Gal Gadot looks great, just by what I saw in Batman v. Superman. The reviews have been great. This movie is long overdue.
