Glad you took the time to pop through. For those who can’t tell or don’t know me, I’m a published author. I write primarily mysteries and crime fiction with interracial romantic subplots. I also write women’s fiction, and anything I feel like writing. My muse is the ruler of my universe so it determines what I write at the time.
Within this blog I will share information about projects and post topics pertaining to my books. I have a lot of things coming soon. I am working on THREE short story serials and I will be blogging themes concerning the serials. I can’t say how often I will blog. I will try to do it more regularly since I got a lot of stuff coming out, but if I can’t blog for long stretches of a time I am sure you will understand. With me, I will blog only when I feel like it or have something to say.
Note: I no longer do author interviews. I only have time to share a bit about what I’m doing these days.
So pull up a chair and relax!
My newest release, The Wild Life (third installment in the Bree and Steven Interracial Mystery Series) is out now! It’s available in print and ebook:

*This post is in connection to my upcoming romantic comedy serial, Welcome to Hollywood*
In Welcome to Hollywood, one of the main characters, William Peel is a struggling black actor trying to…you guessed it, make it in Hollywood. Of course he runs into many of the same issues all aspiring actors run into. After years of working his butt off, William feels it’s more important to get what he wants than to play by the rules.
How far would you go to accomplish a dream that’s dear to you? Would you lie if it meant getting you what you’ve always wanted? We all know right from wrong, but when faced with something we’ve always wanted that’s within our grasp, would taking the chance be worth it?
That’s a question everyone must answer for themselves. I like to do things by the book, but then again some people feel like the ones that do things by the book are always left out in the cold. That’s interesting when you look at it. William’s a good person who makes a bad decision, but learns a lot along the way. Still, one of the most important questions he must answer is, “Was it worth it?”
You’ll have to tune into Welcome to Hollywood to find out. Coming soon!
*This post is in connection to my upcoming AA women’s fiction serial, Sisters Interrupted*
Boy does Layla Oates have a problem. Or does she? I guess it depends on how you look at it. See on the surface, people might see Layla and figure she has everything and would be stupid to look outside of her marriage for anything. She’s 34 years old and has her own catering business, which is doing better and better by the day. She’s got two beautiful little girls and she’s married to Patrick, a handsome surgeon.
Now knowing all this I bet most women would say, “Why the heck would she even think about cheating? She has a life women would kill for!” The truth is that Layla’s marriage is going downhill and she and Patrick don’t really know why. All they know is that they can’t be in a room together more than five minutes these days without arguing.
Despite the love Layla feels for Patrick, she can’t help thinking about another man. A man who would give her the moon and stars if she only asked.
Cheating is a funny subject. We all might can say what we would or wouldn’t do, but the truth is we never know until we are in a situation. I don’t condone cheating whatsoever, but I am human. I’ve been tempted. I won’t lie and say I haven’t but I didn’t fall into the trap of cheating. Some people find it too hard to say no. Is it wrong? Sure, but that’s not the issue. The issue is, what would we do if we ever found ourselves tempted? Layla keeps telling herself she’ll never cheat but will she live up to that promise?
You’ll have to tune into my upcoming serial, Sisters Interrupted to find out.
Have you ever been tempted and if so, did you walk away or dive into the temptation?
For a while I’d been planning on self-publishing some old manuscripts on the side but I have ditched the plan. I will be submitting The Ultimate Rush as well as other titles I’d planned to self-publish to my current publisher, Peace in the Storm Publishing.
I feel this is the best decision for me after thinking it over. I really wasn’t interested in self-publishing when I got down to it, just curious about the idea of it. But as time went on I got less impressed with self-publishing and decided against it.
I am happy with my publisher, my work is appreciated there and I feel they can do a better job with my work than I can at this time.
I look forward to working with Peace in the Storm on these projects.
Also, The Season of Sin and I were nominated for a 2012 African-American Literary Award for Best Mystery!
