Putting the power of magic into words!

I guess that is the only way I can describe my writing. I want others to see the magic in the world, not just children and young people but everyone.



I will have another book out this year, hopefully, more than just one. But, Dragon Wish, my full length fantasy romance, is what I would call the book of my heart. It has taken me over 3 1/2 years to write this story. When I finished, I just didn't want to send it out into the big bad world, but I did and hopefully everyone will be able… Continue

SNEAK PEAK EXCLUSIVE!!! When Little Girls Laugh (Chapter Five Excerpt)

When Little Girls Laugh

by L. Renee Roberts



Chapter V - A Bewildered Wife



Those who did have any encounter with my father knew

that love was not an accurate word to reference him by. He made

sure not to get swindled or cheated by others, so he did it to them

first. He always caught other’s attention just by his looks. So he

used that to his advantage. I remember the day he came running in

the house because he was so excited that the woman at… Continue

Marian L. Thomas penned Color Me Jazzmyne to be an honest portrayal of the torture of and redemption from incest, physical abuse, mental abuse and self-doubt.

5 Minutes, 5 Questions With... Ben, author of Up The Way

When author Ben set out to get Up The Way published, he wanted far more than to simply cash in on the Urban Lit Boom. The purpose and focus of Up The Way was to give food for thought to readers in terms of the many issues that the jail systems contribute to the communities that many of the former inmates are released into.
