I lean over the table at our favorite restaurant. “I need to go to the ladies room.”
You’d think by now I’d remember to take my white cane so I don’t have to bother hubby. Sigh.
“Sure, hon.” He drops his fork on his plate. “Let’s go.”
He takes me by the hand. We circle around tables and head down the hallway. When we reach the bathroom door, I hand him my purse. He opens the door, and whispers. “Go a little to your left.”
I follow his instructions… Continue

So, I am the only child in my family–can’t say whether this is good or bad, but that’s just the way it is.
My dad’s name is Richard, and like I said before, he is a physician. He’s really tall (like, above six feet), dark and handsome. When people meet him these days, they keep saying he looks like Barack Obama!!! Lol!!! I guess they’re kinda right, after all, my dad, like our dear Mr. President, is a half-breed too. His dad (my grandfather) is from somewhere in Anambra State,… Continue

This evening (Thursday) I went along to a studio about forty miles away and was a guest for an hour long interview on the local TV station.
I had met the lady who interviewed I had met three or four years ago and knew we would have fun. We chatted for the full hour, live with no retakes and just a three minute gap for adverts. It was so much fun.
We covered the book, the story, writing, publishing, the UK flag, even some… Continue

Today I posted two videos on my page, Willing Vessel, and The Secret. These are both rough recordings of songs I have written to go with a play I am currently writing - Who In the World.
I would really love it if you all would listen to them, and tell me "How they made you feel". this is very important to know since they are meant to be times of impact in the play. The Secret is meant to be sung by a teenage boy, but the draft is a woman singing.

Your platform conveys to others why you are qualified to write your book. It includes your web presence (website, blog, etc.), relevant articles you’ve published on the subject, classes you teach, and anything else you’re doing to get your name and your… Continue
