Hello Fellow Authors...I'm very excited about joining the group and hope to get to know all of you better.  Be sure to check out my new book when you get a chance "On My Brother's Shoulders: An African American Anthology and Tribute to People of Color."  It provides an interesting analysis of the early civil rights movement and impact of Emmett Till lynching in relationship to key events of our current day as retold through interviews with Angela Davis, Michael Eric Dyson, Mamie Till Mobley (mother of Emmett) and more. Definitely a must read!!!

BOOK RELEASE DATE...MARCH 8th, 2014...The Shelf

Some people are born into a family fortune.  Bri has just entered into a family curse…


…I don’t want to die…was what Bri’s best friend said only days before.  Never having believed in curses, Bri dismissed Aeryal’s claims and assured her friend that she would live.  Assured her that all the near-death incidents were just coincidence.

Then came her funeral.
