MICHELLE OBAMA'S BECOMING

  I remember the first time I even remotely let myself believe that Barack and Michelle Obama could take residence in the White House. It was whe...
  All Other Ground is the third book in award-winning author, Doris Dancy’s Redemptive Love Series and it doesn’t disappoint. Summer Carlton, the protagonist in this riveting story told in multiple POVs, is distraught because the man she’s in lo...
  The first time I laid eyes on Gabrielle Union she was lighting up the screen as the character Conny Spalding in the 2001 romcom, “Two Can Play That Game.” As she strutted down the street in a blazing red thigh-high skirt suit, my mouth dropped...

  Well, I’ve done it again. I’ve given birth to another literary baby.  This one is called “A Penny For Her Heart.” She’s the third book in my standalone Detective Rachel Storme series.  She’ll be coming into the world July 2017. And I...
