Color Me Pretty – Poetry

Hello All!  I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy, especially after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  I wanted to remind you that this blog will be taken down soon.  Please go to my new blog at and subscribe there.  The site has an updated look, better functionality and a new URL address but the content is the same!

I recorded a video to submit to a talent agent and decided that I should  share the video with you guys too!!  The talent agent might think I suck but you guys seem to get what I do  🙂   I wrote Color Me Pretty after I decided to wear my hair natural. I was probably less than a year post BC. For those of you who are not familiar with the term, BC as in big chop, is where I cut the chemical relaxer from my hair down to its virgin kinky curly state. Anyway, I really don’t care what people do with their hair but I always think about our decisions when it comes to beauty and the way our appearance affect us psychologically. I could talk about it more but I think the poem says it all.  Please let me know what you think of the piece.  You can find it on my You Tube channel.  Click Link—>  “Color Me Pretty”

Introducing Nyla Ray!!

Nyla Ray asks... What Should I Do With My Hair

Hello All!  Happy 4th day of the New Year!  Nope, there is no flash fiction this week.  Sorry  🙂   A new year means new beginnings right, so I wanted to share another project I’ve been working on for a few months that’s finally coming together.  It’s’ official, my first children’s book is close to completion!  Whoo-hoo!  I didn’t set out to write children’s books but believers understand that it’s our duty to do what the Lord tells us to do.  So anyway, here I am, staring at a cute little cartoon character with kinky-curly hair all day.  I won’t bore you with all the details yet, I just wanted to show you one of the draft pages.  So be on the look out for Nyla’s birthday party and the “What Should I Do With My Hair” picture book this spring.

Thanks a bunch!
