I love to read. From Steinbeck to Lee Child to D. H. Lawrence to...the list is endless.
I also love to write. Family sagas. Historical fiction. Contemporary romance. Many say writers should have a set genre, but my ideas stem from my life and loves, which is as varied as my ethnically enriched background. The stories I was told as a child got me started. People, travels, events, sadness, pain, and joy keep me going, as does the authors I've come to love.
I read for entertainment and enlightenment, and write with the same intentions. I find characters, or they find me, from many venues. Their stories keep me awake and lull me to sleep. Readers, I hope you enjoy the exploits of the funny, sad, troubled, and happy souls from my life, my loves, and my imagination.

I wrote this story after first witnessing the vineyard's natural

THE OTHER TWO-FIFTHS
After ten years of research and editing, the most significant message of my writing career is here. Scheduled for release 6/12, the anniversary of Medgar Evers' assassination, the story details early events that helped shape our current society.
It exposes the anger, terrorism, and inhumane treatments that have been practiced for decades without punishment or much concern here in the land of the free. A war that few understood or seemed to agree with, that left families grieving for lost loved ones, and those who returned with burdens no man should have to carry. More importantly, it illustrates the dangerous undertaking many experienced for rights that were freely granted others, and the help they received from very unlikely sources.
