I am a former news reporter and anchor, who now writes books full-time. I'm the author of twenty-seven books and a mother to three. My sophomore novel, Let the Church Say Amen, has been made into a movie, directed by actress Regina King and produced by Queen Latifah's Flava Unit, Royal Ties Productions and Bobcat Films. (Oh, and I do make my film debut as well! Look for me in the church scene!)Honored to have won the 2012 NAACP Image Award for Say Amen, Again. I'm also a proud University of Texas at Austin graduate. Not only do I love writing, I love reading almost as much!
