It’s 2010 and my words of wisdom for the year is Pray About It. Everything that I see out there in the world that is just crazy, I am going to just Pray About It. So all the fine Brothas out there walking around with their pants hanging down off their butts, and their walking wide legged to keep them from falling down; know that I’m praying about.

 Jump in the conversation and share your real feelings. Darcel James, the successful, fine sistah in “Where The Brothers At?” struggled with whether an interracial relationship was for her or not. That is a real life situation that people find themselves in every day. Do you follow your heart and disregard the color of his skin.

Often times we see professional athletes, superstars cross the line and date on the otherside. But Obama didn’t do it! He chose an intelligent, attractive Black woman to build a life with and to help him carve out his destiny in life which took him right to the  “Black” White House. Now we have a high powered and very visable Black family living the White House. Now that’s a statement for the history books. Tell me your real feelings.

Are you willing to date outside of your race? And what do you see as the benefits and challanges to that?

S of Heart Cover smallLet’s start out the New Year reading a book each month. Sorrows of the Heart is a great book for you to start with. 

Malcolm Johnson is a man with a good heart who is willing to do what ever it takes to be his brother’s keeper. He’s also a dedicated playboy who has no plans to give his time or heart to any one woman. But the unexpected beautiful and sexy woman in the red dress, Somara Hughes, will make him change his mind. Ava Jones is seductive and determined to find her way into Malcolm’s life and his heart. The fact that he is already involved with Somara won’t stop her.

Malcolm finds himself on a winding road of confrontations, affairs of the heart, and sorrows that land him in a place he never thought he would be. A triangle love affair, his desire to be a father, and his determination to protect his family, will drive him to the point of revenge that will cost somebody’s life.

kit bea Front smThanks to all of you that read my first two books. You are such a blessing to me. I hope that you will order your copy of The Kitchen Beautician which is my January 2010 release. The Kitchen Beautician is a hilariously colorful look at life and the decisions that people make and how those decisions impact their lives. Woven in between the colorful look at life is a heart felt romance story that will reach out and tug at your heartstrings. The main character, Javon, is a man who owns a beauty shop that started in his kitchen. His shop is the most popular place in Atlanta for women to get their hair done. They not only go there to get their hair done but also to listen to his curling iron counseling. His up front and realistic look at life and his experiences allow him to give good advice and he doesn’t hold back anything. He struggles with his sexuality since he was molested as a child. He has a strong church background and wants to break away from the lifestyle, which he was forced into at an innocent young age. A woman in his past comes to the forefront of his life and challenges to him to decide who he really is.
