Rest in Peace Gloria Naylor

I read a post today that Gloria Naylor passed away September 28, 2016. I am usually very skeptical of death announcements on social media, so I did some digging to verify before I allowed myself to literary mourn one of my favorite authors.  Ms. Naylor is the author of several books.  “The Women of Brewster […]

I participated in my first major literary event over the Labor Day weekend.  For me, the event was a mixture of business and fun.  The weather in Decatur Georgia was wonderful, almost fall-like, on Saturday morning.  The crowd did not disappoint because I did not allow myself to have high hopes.  Yes, I wanted to […]

Literary Birth

The labor was intense; there were many days and nights sitting in front of a computer screen fusing twenty-six letters to scribe on paper people, places, things and emotions that lived inside of your head.

Shelves filled with books align two walls […]
