I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in Bedford Stuyvesant. I am a published author with numerous published novels; my path is naturally to books, writing, and the study of literature. My connection to Medgar Evers goes back many years from workshops that I facilitated to participating in the National Black Writers Conference. After teaching for several years at a community college in New Jersey, I knew that I wanted to be part of my own community here in Brooklyn.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing
My list of publications is a bit extensive. I have been a published author since 1990 and have more than 70 novels, short stories and novellas in print across several genres.
