I often reflect on why I do what I do. 

I think for me, I do what this out of a sense of cultural obligation (self, family,community, nation) as well as enjoyment. 

I love seeing Black and ethnic stories, in books, comic, movies etc. I think every race, color and creed deserves this. 

My legacy is my motivation. I grew up hearing stories about the Mayflower and Ellis Island. I couldn't relate to those stories. Positive African American stories were rare. Unfortunately, when we die memories of who we were and what we did during our time here fade quickly. When we become writers our words live on forever. Your great grandchildren will know that you did something positive during your time on planet earth.

I write simply because I love to see the stories in my head spill out across page. My books tend to have a mixture of ethnicities, whether Earth-based or alien. But Blackrose Press is a little different. There's so much great writing, great stories coming out of the POC communities, and I want to do my part in sending these stories out into the world.

My motivation is to be a world citizen, mentor others, pay it forward whenever possible, and to be a better writer; to reach someone with my words.

The thinking that without a degree I would not be a success. I wanted the opportunity to be in game industry to bridge the "digital divide".

Come Forth The Rising Tide

It's the Apocalypse, already in progress…



“Gabriel’s Horn is the only thing that can drive back the Rising Tide and you let them take it to Hell?” Father Finnegan threw the glass of box wine into the fireplace in disgust. Renwick didn’t flinch and threw the chain holding Jillian Pace onto his desk.



“Is that what they were doing? You didn’t say anything about a damned horn. You said get the girl away from the Tide. She’s here. Bounty’s done, I…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
