In Gillespie Junior High School in Philadelphia, my English teacher, Mrs. Miller, played Edgar A. Poe's poems on the phonograph in class and breathed life into the written word for me. To write words that begged to be heard became my goal. I wrote poetry for years and was finally blessed with publication in the SCLC(Southern Christian Leadership Conference) Magazine in the late 70s. Seeing that two-page spread encouraged me immensely, but life had its own ideas for me. In 1992, after many challenges and growth spurts I began to write my way out of a deep depression and instead of poems I had the beginnings of a novel, "Finally". Since then I have written thirteen novels and nine screenplays that all beg to be heard. "Damaged!", "The Parcel Express Murders", "Inherited", and "Pearl and Angela", are currently published by BEE-CON BOOKS, and are available in paperback or hardback. "Damaged!" has garnered me a listing in the 2004 Who's Who In America as the first African American to write and publish a psychological thriller in the fiction genre.
My recent release of "Sasha's New Beginning" as an E-book is available on Kindle. "Damaged!", "Inherited", "The Parcel Express Murders", and "Pearl and Angela" are also available on Kindle. I am currently working on a novel with a young man name Bruce Carthon, Jr., who has a rich and inspiring tale to share with readers.
