My life is involved in my writing. I can only provide information to my readers that may open their eyes to situations and circumstance affecting their lives or the lives of someone they know.


Background Information

I gew up on Chicago's southside in the Ida B. Wells Homes on 39 th and Rhodes.  I was a troubled child spending many young years in the Illinois Youth Commission and I did not know who I was or where I would end up, however I experienced a great deal of pain and suffering and sometimes that pain spills over into my active life.  I was influenced by the environment while trying to be all things to all people.  Something I don't practice today.

My home was ruled by my mother. A very strict disciplinarian. A single parent who had no idea how to relate to me.  My sister and I are extremely close as she was witness to how hard times were between my mother and myself.  I was a gifted child.  I was able to draw in detail by the age of three and I began reading at the same age.  Every test I have ever taken I have passed.  I obtained my Cosmetology Degree in 1969 and placed top ten among three hundred students.  My IQ has been tested many times.  I know for a fact that those who did the testing were amazed at this little black project girl.  I am modest about myself, but I now see who I was and why I hid from the world.

I found love for the very first time in my life after four children and two wrecked marriages in 2009.  I found the love that my sub-conscious was dictating my entire life, I ran from myself. Today I am forced to live with my decision made some forty years ago.

I gained my BA degree from Roosevelt University in Chicago, although I've attended several colleges throughout Illinois...Northern Ill. Univ., Loop Jr. College., Olive Harvey College., MacMurray College and I.B.M. General Systems Divison in Chicago.

I am writing my auto bio-right now and as I look over my life and my research I see certain steps and experiences that molded my distress.  Today I go through all that I can to correct who I am.
