Seven Days Until ‘Commissioned To Love’

The time is almost here! Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that I am about to release my seventh book. Commissioned To Love didn’t start out like my previous books. As the title suggests, I was literally commissioned to do a book project for someone. The commissioned part actually fell through. So did the project. I […]

What Happens When Love Alters Life?

Love is a feeling we all have experienced at some point in our lives. Whether it’s the love of a romantic interest, family member or friend, we have felt the ups and downs of love. However, society tends to highlight women as the weaker sex when it comes to matters of the heart. There are […]

If These Chairs Could Talk

Many of us work long hours every day. People sit a desk, stand or either a combination of both. No one ever stops to think about the chairs though. They hold our weight, without complaint. Of course, the chair won’t ever talk back. However, the chair often gets to witness us at our lowest points. […]

The ‘Sting’ Is Coming In 7 Days

I have always loved poetry for as long as I can remember. The emotion, the voice inflections through spoken word, the word play. All of it is so intriguing to me, especially when you hear or see different poets in action. However, people have to live poetry in order to write about it. My new book, […]

It Takes 21 Days To….

  We have all heard the saying, “It takes 21 days to break a bad habit”. I am actually doing a 21 day fast right now. So, believe that there are some bad habits being broken. However, 21 days means something different today. The official release date is February 4th (my birthday). I am extremely excited about […]

The Tail End Of The Sting!

The power of a stingray lies in its tail. Ironically, Ancient Greek dentists used the venom contained inside of the tail of a stingray as anesthesia. There is always light after any storm. Maybe you have experienced the loss of a loved one recently. Maybe you’re feeling really unnoticed or unappreciated. Then, there may be […]

I’ve Been Stung…Have You?

Today is a very special day for me, for several reasons. I released my first poetry book, Blurred Vision, five years ago. Now, I’m really anxious to share my latest book. Stingrays will be released on my birthday, February 4, 2017. This poetry collection will only be available as an ebook. However, there are physical copies […]

I’m Not Ready To Forgive You

Forgiveness  can be one of the hardest things to do. Many people say they have forgiven others, but still harbor ill feelings. I have learned over the years that forgiveness is more so for ourselves than it is the other person. We shouldn’t hold on to negative feelings, but forgiveness takes time. Some people just […]

The Sting Between The Sheets

  This week, I announced that my new poetry book, Stingrays, will be released early next year. Stingrays is close to 90% completed, so I am excited to share this new collection of poetry with you. My first novel, Fortune Cookie, took a year to write; but poetry is a different beast. Fiction follows a certain rhythm […]

Are You Ready To Feel The Sting?

I have always been a lover of water. Water is one of God’s most soothing and interesting creations to me, especially waters of the ocean. Every book I have ever written has to start off with the concept and title first. The title and concept are part of the backbone of how I am able […]
