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...?

Background Information

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.


I am a Stroke Advocate and an Author Advocate as well. Lecturers & Speakers, African American Community & Issues, Author, Best Selling Author, Storyteller, Women's Issues

Additional Information

Man-o-man I wanna tell you my conference at the Chicago Black Womens Expo July 30th was just AWESOME!! Speaking on the panel for Women Who Survived the "Burning Coals" was phenomenal. I met with so many other outstanding courageous women and feel truly honored and blessed to be able to share my story with them as well as the people in the audience. I felt that everyone walked away motivated and inspired. I looked out into the audience as I spoke and could see it in everyone's faces. They were all as excited to be there as we were to speak with them. My heart goes out to so many people that I know who have been able to over come their circumstances and those out there right now that are still trying. I say to you hang in there... never lose hope... and never stop believing in yourself and the heavens above. You are worthy, God loves you and I love you as well.
