From the Author
SELLOUT is my debut novel about three individuals--a black woman, black man and white woman--facing the consequences of interracial dating. I've found that people sometimes have strong reasons for dating outside the race, which include negative stereotypes (i.e., black men are players). I once knew a black man who was in the middle of divorcing a black woman and he told me he would never date another black woman again. I thought that was sad and interesting at the same time.
I wanted to explore the root cause of the characters' racial dating decisions by delving deep into their psyches. What makes a person completely ostracize their own race and "jump the fence?" SELLOUT answers those questions.
Hope you enjoy it!
