Book Synopsis:
Sugar Lumps and Black Eye Blues is a smorgasbord of emotions that are sautéed in wordplay. The course begins with cocktails of exploration leading to desserts of revelations, revealing many journeys in womanhood. When stepping inside these pages, select from a menu of moments to entice the mental palette. You won’t be satisfied unless every moment is sopped up like gravy to a biscuit. Make time to savor in memories of relationship while cultivating a better outlook on new ones.

Confectionately Yours falls in step with debut work Sugar Lumps and Black Eye Blues by highlighting the author’s spirited phrase “even sugar can be raw”. Personal, political and passionate this journal of moments examines the triumphs, pitfalls and chaos of daily living with a pen and a notebook for social change. Documenting birthdays, holidays, campaign trails, Auld Lang Syne, Valentine, social causes to Santa Claus, May flowers and spring showers with anticipation to find the natural saccharine of humanity.

Highlighting the good, the bad, the ugly and the hilarity of twenty some years Mahogany Nectar is a poetic memoir that takes you to the initial stages that forged a bond between the author, the pen and the written word. She speaks about a broken home, a loving mother, a puzzle-piece lineage, woes of the collegiate life, proms and promenades, death, rebirths, sexuality lessons at the neighborhood park and community pool. Although the bookend to the saccharine glazed trilogy, sharing these experiences is only the beginning!

Where night table meets coffee table, Lil Blæk Book: All the Long Stories Short delights in bringing evening to daytime, sparking tête-à-têtes that would blush the rays off the sun. This tell-all book delivers new meaning to the phrase “the long and short of it” with sass, vulnerability and poetic flare!

The Hotel Haikus: The landlord fails to change the locks; evicted tenants make a revengeful return and set the apartment building on fire! Flames, firefighters and fear of the unknown pen a hilariously tragic haiku over and over again. From homelessness to a hotel that looked like the backdrop for any American horror film, poetry became the vehicle trudging these two souls to sanity!
