Honoring Friendships During This Holiday Season!


As we approach the Christmas season, I am reminded that I have so much to be grateful for: good health, a loving family, loyal friends, and an outlet for my creativity. Creating characters and telling stories is my passion, but I wouldn’t be able to share my passion if it weren’t for you, dear readers. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support from 2003, when Pandora’s Box was released, up to the present.

To date, I’ve written over twenty-seven novels, not including the E-books released independently for the past few years, along with my traditionally published work. My most recent literary offering is a collaborative project called Sidechickology. Strange word, right? I’ll define it for you a little later. But first I want to talk about the joy of working with four extremely talented writers, whom I’m blessed to call “my friends.”

daaimahDuring my writing career, I’d never written with another author until 2013, when along with my Philly home girl, Daaimah S. Poole, I wrote my first E-Book, One Night Stand. Sharing the writing process with a friend was a unique and fun experience. karenSo much fun that I did it again! My next joint project was created with another friend from Philadelphia, Karen E. Quinones Miller. Writing Hittin’ It Out the Park, which was released in March 2015, was awesome from the juicy beginning to the salacious end. Next, I engaged in a project with my literary husband, Cairo (Lol) that is entitled, Sexual Healing, a book that’s pure fire and will be released in August, 2016.

Back to my current novel and the definition of its title: Sidechickology examines the world of men who practice and preach theology, along with monogamy, but have issues adhering to the rules of both. The novel was written with Body of Work, the pen name for a New York Times Bestselling author who has sold millions of books translated into several languages globally.

Writing Sidechickology was a labor of love. I was so caught up in the drama of the womanizing preachers that are featured in the book, I literally lost track of time. Lost in a time warp of sorts, I would write nonstop from seven in the morning until I collapsed around midnight. If you’re in the mood for a spicy read during this holiday season, then treat yourself to a copy of my latest. Believe me, you won’t be disappointed.
