Author Expo : August 18th

The Author Expo was definitely an experience! I truly enjoyed myself! I was a ball of nervousness but as the day progressed, I became more at home. I found it interesting how the way I looked made an impact on my book. I am 31 but I appear to be a teen/early 20's. Majority of the guest/participants spoke to my mother at first asking her author questions as opposed to me. I also learned that I must sell and market myself, a task that I am ever learning. Next year I will be ready!!!! Thank you…

Imperfect Beginnings

I’m a sucker for a good love story. And I think most of us are. The difference may be that some of us like our love stories unvarnished and unadulterated, and others like it wrapped in painstaking detail about a different time, a different place, or with interesting background circumstances and a swirl of other goings-on.

I like love stories with unconventional beginnings, beginnings that are imperfect. I think that’s usually how real life love stories begin, especially today, and…

He is NOT Listening, are you?

Did you know that men and women really do communicate for different reason? There are many articles written about these differences. Psychologists think that men converse as a way of negotiating their status in a group. While women use conversations to bond and gain closeness. Many times, females reveal a lot about themselves in conversations, their words are more intimate. It is no surprise that women tend to bond over tea and girl talk and men bond while…

Live In The Moment

Live In The Moment

Many successful people never take the time to be kind to themselves. They miss so many opportunities to live in the moment and enjoy the fruits of their labor. For instance, instead of celebrating a very productive work day, they grow frustrated that more tasks were not completed. It is not…

I'm always talking about transformation. Cornell, who I've known since we were 15, called me tonight from California. He, like me, is an attorney who can't stop talking about the mind, the subconscious and how to create a life we can love. 

I told Cornell that I'm so sick and tired of us, as a people, thinking we're inferior. We can't wait for anyone else to tell us we're okay, that we're enough, that's our job to do. I can tell you, as I dark skinned sister I made that decision, that…

Can You Handle the Truth?

Hi all.  July 5th marked my third month of being published, and I've done things I never thought I would do.  I've hosted a jazz show, been a guest on an Internet radio program, did a presentation at a library, met with a book club group, and so on. I even camped out at a hair salon and made a few sales.  I have no complaints.  It has been absolutely…
