A Journalist UNPLUGGED!


I am a veteran journalist, author, media trainer and motivational speaker.I've spent spent more than 30 years as a radio and television journalist, working for both the NBC and ABC-TV News affiliates in North Carolina.

My career has taken her to Ohio, West Virginia, Boston, New Hampshire, Saudi Arabia and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I am currently the host of a weekly talk show on WCOM Radio and Durham Community Media (Channel 18) in North Carolina. On her Boomer Beat Radio Show, I interview people “who are on the move and making a difference at midlife and beyond.”

I am also using her media expertise to train small business owners and entrepreneurs how to self-promote and market themselves using radio, television and various forms of social media. In addition, My new book is titled, How to Get on the News Without Committing Murder. To learn more, visit my website: 

But my life hasn’t been all about journalism.  I’m also a wife, mother and grandmother dealing with other issues like aging, menopause, transition, over-worked, underpaid, younger bosses, stressed out, divorce, second chances, new opportunities, transformation, racism, sexism, mortality… WHATEVER!

My life as an African-American baby boomer female entrepreneur is challenging and, as a result, I have plenty of stories to share! As a baby boomer author, I’ve told part of mine in the Amazon Best Seller Whatever! A Baby Boomer’s Journey Into Middle Age. 

 In my 2010 release, Don’t Ask and I Won’t Have to Lie, part of my life story continues as I deal with my own moral conscience while discovering some of the “truths” behind the “lies” I’ve heard and told. 

I am now releasing my 4th book:  How to Get on the News Without Committing Murder to give readers insider secrets on what the media is looking for when it comes to giving you  publicity and exposure.
