My poetic gift leads to me express thoughts on; race, social class, historical events, complex human relationships, politics, and religion…but not love. If I wrote about love, I would be neglecting the gift that makes me unique.  All artist have to decide not to be cookie cutter copy cats.  I admonish all to be bold, original, be true to yourself and your craft.

I enjoy being who I am; an African-American woman raised in South Carolina, USA.  I am a lover of the ethnic rainbow with an added affinity for German culture.
