Weekly Playlist : May 12-18, 2019

All genres of music have inspired my work as a writer over the years. I’d thought I’d provide a weekly look into the songs that inspire me on a daily basis.  

A Taste Of Honey : Prologue by Cortney Joseph

The following is the opening to a novel I intended to complete this year. I don’t believe I will continue, so I thought I’d share the prologue here.

“Black Is 👑” Playlist

With about 35 minutes left in Black History Month, I thought I’d close out a roller coaster of a month with a celebration of Black love, pride, defiance, respect, and more with a playlist.   Black Is Love. Black Is Power. Black Is Royalty. Black Is Beauty. Black Is Us. Black Is Life. Enjoy!
