As a young girl at 17 you'd think the least of my
worries should have been about finding a secure place to live and more about my hair and what I should wear or the big zit that appeared on my face from out of nowhere, a critical state of mind wondering how much longer before it would disappear.
That’s what teenagers do right…? It’s considered our right of passage. A time to live and explore freely, having the love and support of our mother and father, our family's to secure us as we experience some of life’s fragile insecurities.
Life is all about making choices but unfortunately I spent those looking over my shoulders in fear, hoping the nightmare of abuse would come to an end, and I would finally be able to enjoy my life no longer locked in fear, after all hadn’t I gone through enough in the years before? In the months my mother left I will always
remember this one day… I was 14 years old and thrown out on
the streets of the west side of Chicago by my own sister no less, with no place to go and no one to turn to. Yet here I was now 17, and my abandon this time was to flee.
“Xceptance” is my story of trying to find a place in the world, and the abuse I suffered in “Black Beans ‘N Rice” as I found the strength to walk away and the courage to let go. I never knew the fruits of the reward in store for me would be finding real love for the very first time at 25. In my journey I learned that I am
worthy and so are each and every one of you, and I hope that I am able to captivate, motivate, and inspire you as well.
In addition to writing books I am also an Advocate for Stroke survivors, and the creator of the Kuckabug Collection of African Dolls. I have released myself from Corporate America and am pursuing my gift of writing.
What I crave... I love to write drama, and suspense stories that capture you from the very first page and lock you in to a journey you won't soon forget, but will find yourself laughing at the memories you recall. Are you ready...?
In addition to writing other novels, I am working in future developments bringing my novels to film.
See you at the movies!
Currently I live in Illinois with my husband and family.
