I have always wanted to be a novelist. I have attempted a couple novels, but have not completed one to date. So, I decided to write a book of poetry, and then I decided to write children’s books to keep myself writing, authoring – journeying towards Novelist. My children’s books are a reflection of my four children and their idiosyncrasies and quirks. I believe being African American is something to be celebrated and not enough of us are creating positive imagery for Black youth. My books highlight Black main characters in a way that is relatable to all.
