““Whenever I start a new project, I revisit my tagline: Hunting Truths, Gathering Hope and Weaving Stories. I daydream about success and think about what might happen if the book becomes a blockbuster movie. How might thoughts, inked on paper today, impact people tomorrow. I am both humbled and energized by the responsibility.”
"By and large, my stories feature people of African descent. I think it’s important to feature characters that are proud, smart and real. We have too much negative, stereotypical imagery in print and in celluloid. Just because a story is based upon a real event doesn’t make it suitable for public consumption"
“I am always surprised by my success. When strangers tell me they are moved by my stories I am amazed. It’s so gratifying to know that my work makes a difference. After all, that’s why I write. To impact thoughts, attitudes, behavior and thus effect organic change in the world. It never gets old for me. I am truly blessed.”
