If you are a fan of Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry, I think you’ll love this book of poetry. This collection was written over the last sixteen years of my life. I’ve covered different aspects of my life from losing my mother, to dating the wrong type of guys, to having my first child.
When people think of Memphis they think of Elvis and Graceland or Martin Luther King and Lorraine Motel. Not to down play the importance of these very memorable people in our history, but I want to be one of the people that's thought of when people hear the name of my home town.
I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. The first 14 years of my life, I lived with my mom, great-grandmother and two younger brothers. I moved in with my father, two of my older sisters, my dad's girlfriend and her two children a few months before I turned 15.
I took an interest in reading at a very young age and had decided that I would write a book of my own by the time I was in the fifth grade (Even at the tender age of eleven I knew I wanted to be a writer). I wrote my first poem when I was in the eighth grade and have been writing them ever since.
My writings consist of poetry, short stories and novels. The subject matters range from family, jobs and sex. Sometimes I write sweet, sometimes naughty and other times humorous.
My biggest inspiration is my son, Donovan. Without him, I would not have built up the courage to pursue writing professionally.
You know that I’m a Pisces
Which means I’m kinda feisty
Having had my little baby
Has helped me keep my sanity.
