Dear Reader,

       I grew up in a challenging community and was told by a high school guidance counselor that I was "not college material."  Initially, my attendance at college was marked by a fear of failure. One weekend, I came home and told my mother I wasn't smart enough to go to college. Her response was, "Don't come home without the sheep skin." The "sheep skin" was the term my mother  used to refer to  a college degree, and I had to figure out how to get it. 

      After graduating from college, I went on to become a tenured English teacher at an inner city school district.  I wanted to teach, serve, and give back. Now, I am a writer and self-published author.  In my book, "Where's the Ring? Uncovering Reasons for Not Getting Married," I share autobiographical sketches about issues of the ethnic, inner city community. The book "How Did I Choose the Wrong Man?" has seven different short stories, and my readers asked for sequels, so I've started a series. The first book in the series is "Fool Me Once, Love Me Twice, Hate Me Forever." It's Jewel's story. 

My books are written to be insightful and enjoyable. My brief autobiography clip is here to encourage others to keep moving forward.

"Believe in the Dream. "
