Hello, world! But 20-some years later. The basic 'why' of 'what' I'm doing here.
If you believe that someone like me hates you, you have a poor grasp of what "hate" is. Hate is the opposite of love. Hate requires the same willingness to release as much as emotion and care as love does. And I suppose that it's quite true for a number of fans and the response … Continue reading Open Letter to Wade Robson: No, I Don’t Hate You.
There are so many methods of book launching, advice for first-timers out there, and way too much pressure for the first book to be a big splash. I've accepted that may simply not be the case for me. Right now the most important thing is simply to get it done.
He didn't touch me. He didn't argue when I cut him off. He stopped when I told him to and left me alone. But he followed me for about ten minutes. From getting off the bus, walking to the corner store and waiting for me to leave, then trying to block my access to the sidewalk, it didn't dawn on me … Continue reading For Valentine’s Day, I Found Out I Might Have a Stalker
There is nothing White America loves more than a good ol' public hanging.
A run-down about why I've been silent for six weeks with little to no updates on my book that is due in a few weeks.

So it's more than crunch time on my book progress. I have to finish the manuscript, format it, and submit it to editors. I have been woefully behind on my Indiegogo, but that won't be the case much longer. I had turned 31 the day before.
