'I am constantly motivated as a writer.

Observing, listening and participating in this Earthly experience stimulates me beyond explanation, provides a major impetus for my curiosity and supplies unlimited inspiration. 

I write to reflect, to share, to observe the fullness of life alive in me.'  

Thank you for visiting my website.






"Scrolling through the new book, 'I Am Bigger than Nigger'...is like taking an emotional rollercoaster! The stories and poems hit you, touch you and sometimes with a tear, sometimes with a smile. Some  novels by Toni Morrison and Nikki Giovanni had that same effect on me...like you just received a beautiful gift from a beloved friend.

This book is definitely a MUST READ!"
