    Once, We Were Colored

    This is one woman’s story.

    I really need to release my historicals (that also feature romance), so that’s what I’m fiddin’ to do 🙂

    I enjoy writing love stories. But I also enjoy crafting historical fiction and Scifi featuring leads of color.

    A historical romance that’s already been released on Amazon.com is JUKEBOX:

    JUKEBOX Volume One
    JUKEBOX Volume One – Midwest teens become America’s first interracial singing duo.

    As a child star David Latimore had a winsome, bucktoothed grin and expressive, molasses brown eyes. His film debut was in a musical feature when he was seven, around 1941, just after World War II broke out. The tiny angel costume he wore looked more like a white nightgown with a bent coat hanger stuck up his back with feathers glued to it. The white sparkles they’d given him to toss around always made his nose itch. “Saints and Sinners” was a Vanguard studio rip-off of “Cabin in the Sky” and MGM’s “Green Pastures.” But “Saints and Sinners” proved to be such a money maker that a couple of songs from the film score had been top forty hits.

    The Queen of Comedy

    Failed comic recalls his successful film star aunt. E book and hard cover availability TBA.




    Brilliant comic. Flawed woman. One legendary career.

    Most people recognize the face, if not the name. That apple cheeked, rich brown face with the inviting smile that adorns baking products worldwide. Older movie goers fondly recall her role as the friendly, wise cracking maid in over one hundred films. But to her family and spurned lovers, the tongue of Honi Hawkins was brutally uncompromising and anything but funny, as she strived to become THE QUEEN OF COMEDY. ©
