What's New?

It's a brand NEW YEAR and I am working on another book. In the mean time, I am building a mailing list so I can stay in contact with my friends and followers. 

This is all new to me, so bear with me. The first five people to subscribe to my mailing list will get double-stuff. 

I worked hard to get'er done! My new book was released in paperback on December 31, 2014, Kindle on January 1, 2015. You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.

Adventures in Blackface is a short story and one of a selection of “shorts” retrieved from the cutting room floor. The short story centers on a black college freshman, Ruth, one of six black students in an otherwise white university in the 1960’s. Ruth faces the challenge of the romantic advances of a white male student, and the racism of white faculty.

My latest book is live on Amazon.  You can find it by clicking here.

Tell them I Died

Tell Them I Died is a romantic adventure that centers on the loves and lives of Angela and Bodine Beaudoin and their friends on the social networking site, Blaq-Kawfee.com. Angela and her husband Bodine are retired and live in Raleigh, North Carolina. Every day they talk to friends in Las Vegas, Memphis, Chicago, Darwin Australia, Atlanta, San Antonio, Los Angeles and other places where their internet friends live. They all interact on Blaq-Kawfee.com until Angela receives a phone call from Carlton telling her that his mother, A1QTEE, the owner/operator of Blaq-Kawfee died a month ago. Instantly, Angela smells foul play and finds herself working overtime, much to the chagrin of Bodine, to figure out what happened to her dear friend. 

            The story distinquishes itself from the standard romance in that the protagonists are over fifty, and much of the action takes place on the internet, when the characters are not traveling around the world.

When it comes to long distance internet romances, sixty is the new seventeen.

Motherless Child - stories from a life

(click on book cover for an excerpt)

Imagine you gave a baby up for adoption forty years ago, and after years of trying to find her, she finds you.  Now come the hard questions.  She's healthy, beautiful, and successful, but she wants to know why you gave her away and why you didn't marry her father. And there is also the unspoken question of "What kind of black woman gives her baby away?" How do you explain to her that giving her away was the best gift you could offer?
