I.Love.To.Write.

I worked deep into the night last night finishing the updated version of Dancing During the Storm. You are going to love it. I know. I love it. I literally had to cut the last story off because I was running out of space.  I had been promising this update for a year and I finally did it! It is so worth it!

I will be honest writing for me is like a relationship. Some days it is good and I love it more than anything, other days, I quit it and promise never to return. If it were a marriage, I would have divorced it a dozen times. Of course, we would get back together and promise to do right.

The thing that always brings me back is the story.  I tell God I am not doing this anymore. I am finished, done. God gives me a story so good I can’t wait to put it on paper.

I added three new stories to the book and took two stories away.  Dancing During the Storm is a collection of short stories. These are stories I have written over the course of my life. the first story I added is about justice or what is perceived as justice. Another is about the state of women and the third one was my first attempt to write from the point of view of a man.

As you read my work, I am sure you wonder where does this come from, and only the grace of God knows.  He inspires me and takes me step by step through the process.

During the month of September I will give you some insight into why I do what I do. I will tell you some stories. You may even learn some things. This year I will also share some of the influencers in my life. Looking forward to telling you the story of me.

Be Encouraged

BE ENCOURAGED: It is impossible to digest all of the things happening in our world today and not be scared, sad or angry. BUT if you remember who your God is, this is only something else for Him to handle.


In my book, When You Forget Your Phone, I use scripture to remind me of who God is and what He can do. Check it out on Amazon this weekend.

Dancing During the Storm is a collection of stories from projects that I have written over the years. They represent a desire to praise God despite the storms in my life. As the saying goes, you are going into a storm, in the middle of a storm or coming out of a storm. All of these stories tell of people who enjoy the life that God has given them and live it to the fullest. Each character has a storm in their life which they are going into, in the midst of, or coming out of.
The first story is about the first man to ever encounter a storm and the impact on his life.
The second story is about an African American book editor on her first date with her boss and allows him to see more of her life than she wanted revealed. She is heading into a storm over which she has no control.
The third story is a science fiction tale of the journey of a young woman who is searching for peace and quiet after spending the last two years on a planet that had to resemble hell. As she emerges from the storms of her life, she sees that things are not a easy as she thought they would be.
Enjoy these fun, light hearted stories, but hear the underlying intent. All of the main characters know that God is in control.

When You Forget Your Phone

This book too will be heading for other ebook platforms, so watch for it’s last free date. It will be coming soon.  You can also order this paperback at Createspace or by email uppcreative@yahoo.com.

When You Forget Book Cover

In my phone are hundreds of names and numbers. Without my phone, I only remember two phone numbers. I don’t even know my daughter’s phone number. When you have you bible with you, or access to it, you are probably pretty confident. But when you are in the midst of a trial and your bible and the app are not available, what do you rely on? When You Forget Your Phone is a devotional that challenges you to memorize God’s word. If you know God’s word, it is easier to stand on His promises when your world is turbulent.
The fifteen verses included in this devotional are verses that God has spoken in the life of the author over the last year. This book will give some insight into her journey with the Lord.
