I wrote my first story at my parents' kitchen table at a time when pagers were all the rage, schools had typing classes and every young black girl wanted to be hella cool Shana from Jem and the Holograms…or was that just me?

I wrote two super weird stories that night. Like tripping on LSD weird. One involved a girl who couldn’t get a date to her prom so she dressed up her dog and took him instead and the other was about a girl who was so curious about what she tasted like that she started to eat herself. Needless to say, I like my heroines amazingly flawed and slightly demented. Write what you know, right?

I’ve dabbled in all forms of writing, from comedy sketches to screenwriting to journaling. Sadly, nothing juicy happened until college, but whatevs. Now I’m ready to unleash my wacky cast of characters on the world and see what kind of trouble they can get into.

Check back soon for news on my debut novel, You Make Me Sick! It’s a love story, of course.
