I’m ecstatic to announce that earlier this week I sold my first adult novel to DAW Books. The book is titled Who Fears Death?
and it is possibly the most terrifying book I’ve ever written.
I started writing it just after my father passed in 2004 and the very nature of the story plagued me with nightmares as I was writing it. It also plagued several of my friend with nightmares when they read it. The story is relentless and unflinching. It was inspired by the genocide in the… Continue

Why is it? – A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping under an advertised blanket on an advertised mattress and pull off advertised pajamas? Takes a bath in an advertised tub, shaves with an advertised razor, washes with an advertised soap, put on advertised clothes, sits down to breakfast of advertised coffee, put on an advertised hat, rides to his office in an advertised car, writes with an advertised pen.. Then he refuses to advertise, says that advertising doesn’t pay, and… Continue

So I've committed myself to working hard for my screenwriting organization, (The Organization of Black Screenwriters), and screening films for the Los Angeles Film Festival, but I have to make time for my own writing, especially my short stories.
My goal this year is to take weekend trips out of town for my own personal writing retreats. I find that I am most inspired when I am in a new place, or sitting in church. (Not that my church is boring, but Rev Michael Beckwith of Agape… Continue

Well, Juno Books became an imprint of Pocket Books. Juno published Wind Follower. Now, this may be good news but it might not be. Juno's been going toward urban fantasy. I like folkloric fantasy. Exploring tribal culture and what makes tribes. Current novel is Constant Tower which needs an agent cause it's neither urban fantasy nor does it have a female protag which is what Juno wants. But it's such a great book! What to do!
I have another novel, Daughters of Men, which many folks… Continue

Earth Squadron is steadily working towards our goals with the project. However, due to the economic downturn the action figure has been put on hold for several months. It will definitely be complete during the summer. The storyline is complete with new additions to the ever growing universe. Even with the setbacks we’ve come to understand that everything happens for a reason. We’ve been privy to some new software that we are in the process of mastering which will increase… Continue

I'm watching Obama take office, and before he even stepped onto the dais, I was rocking my feet like the African women from Kenya to Nigeria, who move their hips, ushering in the elements and pushing power forward through their arms and the ululations they call with tongue and teeth. A martini glass in my hand, and hope in my heart, I'm thinkin', "Damn, this is a new day."
Although I know Obama isn't as progressive as I want him to be, game peeps game when it comes to this historic… Continue

The message is clear: you can’t keep an Ilyassai down. Imaro is back, bigger and badder than ever. The third volume of his larger-than-life adventures – “Imaro: The Trail of Bohu” – is now available at www.lulu.com. You can read an excerpt from it in the Discussions section of the Sword and Soul group on this site.
I have two people to thank for helping me to keep Imaro in print after the setback the series suffered in 2007. The first is Brother Uraeus, who started the publishing… Continue

This is an Op-Ed article I had published in a local newspaper last week. Given its subject matter, I think it remains relevant.
Rare Convergence in Political History Rings in New Year
Much has been written and said about the historical significance of Barack Obama’s victory in the recent U.S. presidential election. The event deserves all those words and more, for when Obama takes the oath of office during his Jan. 20 inauguration, he will be the first black person to hold… Continue
