I discovered my love for literature at an early age. My love for humanity soon followed. Fusing my two loves, I write complex, heartfelt stories that embody the human experience.
Before becoming a novelist, I worked in the field of Human Services for many years, advocating for children, youth, and families.
I continue to teach in the field of humanities and work as a Psychotherapist.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Texas Southern University, and a Masters's Degree in Social Work from San Diego State University.
To commemorate the 400 years since the first African captives arrived in the Americas, I founded the 1619 National Celebration of Black Women, March 2019. Our purpose-driven mission is recognizing the extraordinary contributions women of African descent have made in building America.
"This book (Hand for Hand) stands on its own as a sequel. It has drama, suspense and so much emotion, it was a real page turner for me. The further character development of the twins made me even more connected to their experiences than before. I truly am looking forward to the third installment in this series."
