What You Need to Know About Me:
In December 2009, writing, publishing and promoting poetry for over 18 years, I published my first book, RUN INTO BLACKNESS: FEELING MY POETIC GUMBO. This work consists of several years of exploring the plight of Black people. I get inspiration from my heritage, culture and race. RUN INTO BLACKNESS is a taste of different realms of Black culture which I've prepared. Some poems are delicious and consumed easily, such as the chapter about Black love. Others are somewhat bitter and meant to be sipped, such as the chapters covering Black identity and saving our village. All the five chapters leave nothing uncovered in the search for redemption and hope.

Paperback, 132 pages, ISBN: 9780979047695

Yes, I agree, there were too many videos for me to figure out which to watch.  I have a children't manuscript I'd like illustrated.  I'll need happy images.  Can you quickly show me relevant images?

I found some but got depressed hearing about your grief.  Brought sad thoughts to my mind so I cut it short.  Do you have an art portfolio or a video with a number of works and very little talking?  Please include the link, if so, so I can just click on it.  That video did not show anything that inspired Children's Book thoughts in me.
