    Veterinarian and sometime singer Adam Takaura is also introduced in the book. Since I already had Hui’s spot on imitation of Michael Jackson in the ebook HUI, Adam’s passion is for R&B music.

    A Quiet Riot

    First, congratulations to the Jackie Robinson West team for winning the 2014 US Little League Championship!!

    2014 US Little League World Champs! They're so CUTE!
    2014 US Little League Champs! They’re so CUTE!


    They hail from Chicago, so go Chi-town! Next up is a formidable team from South Korea. All the teams should be proud of their sportsmanship, parental and fan support, and love for the game which was on full display.

    I think this pic shows what else I’ve been up to:

    RIOT – A black officer is caught between the community she serves and the thin blue line she must uphold.


    This will be a continuing serial on my blog, but it won’t be set in Ferguson. It’ll be in a fictional town where everyone believes race is no problem, until it is.

    JUKEBOX – Official release on June 5th

    Now that Jukebox is no longer in the running for one of the top three slots in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards, I’m releasing the ebook Tuesday, June 5th and using the semi-finalist status for marketing purposes.




    I’m still trying to figure out how to add the back cover to Kindle 🙂 so I’ve downloaded a few tools to study, like Mobi and Calibre.
