In her own words . . .

“Easy reading is damn hard writing.”―

 

Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

Writing is one of my passions. Ironically, it was born out of another passion, reading.

 

Growing up, I went down the rabbit hole with Alice and meant with the queen of hearts under the covers in my bedroom with a flash light. I marveled at black beauty and watched in awe as captain Ahab wrestled with the great white whale. In fact, I don’t remember a time when reading wasn’t a big part of my life.

 

In high school required reading was Man Child in the Promised Land and Black Boy by Richard Wright. On my own, I traveled to India with M. L. Kay and to Regency England with Victoria Holt. I cried with Jane Eyre when I was a teen and revisited her again last year.

 

Reading assuages my curiosity by allowing me to explore other places, times, cultures, and most of all history. I write for the same reason. My desire is to take the reader on an emotional journey through the pages of history.

 

I am a life-long resident of Philadelphia, a wife, the mother of two adult children and three grandchildren.

 

 

Influences

 

Inspired by the works of Zora Neale Hurston, Alex Haley, Taylor Caldwell, Alice Walker and many others, I have been writing for more than twenty years.
