I also had so much fun using my Vado Creative Cam and filming webisodes of Ananda Leeke TV (www.youtube.com/anandaleeke). I was able to create a groovy series on Black women bloggers who… Continue
I so loved his voice, and this is a sad day in the literary world. I think his honest candor about the life of men who chose certain lifestyles was exceptional. I came upon his book quite by accident then proceeded to read all of them in short time. I will miss His words and talent.

It is my hope that this book circulates amongst many generations, educating adults and children alike. If our children are educated early about the proper use of credit and the importance of protecting their names, then we could see a greater outcome.

Jesus recognized that there were going to be problems in our lives regardless of the cause; whether it sickness, financial difficulties or family struggles it remains a problem… Continue
I belong to too many communities. Sometimes it overwhelms me.
But I'm Black. I'm a writer. I write Young Adult fiction.
I connect myself to communities that feed each individual part of me. When I visit here, I can rejoice in celebrations of my peers or lament the industry issues that make writing while Black a challenge.
I wish I were coming to rejoice, today.

By now, you probably know that Twitter can be a fantastic tool to generate massive traffic, build your author platform and sell more books.

When the Garden of Eden didn't work out, God had a back up plan for both Himself and the world. His backup plan was Jesus. The darkness and destruction that was in store for man couldn't materialize because God had already planned out a just in case scenario. Imagine for a moment that God had no plan to address Adam and Eve's folly. Where would we as believers be? That is a very scary proposition.
So is the idea of not having a savings account. Most of us are so busy trying to stay… Continue
