'Her walk is mean
her waist is lean
Hourglasses pale in comparison
dam, won't chu tell me what chu got in them jeans?
Your calves subtle and delicate
your thighs as curvaceous as kidney beans
You must be from uptown, strong-Island or the Bronx
I must be trippin'; a hottie like you could ONLY be from Queens'

That's right! As a matter of fact. . . everyone is! Every copy of '100 Portrayals through Poetry' purchased from this website gets signed personally by the author. Why leave your house to get your book autographed if you don't have to. Order now while supplies last.

This goes beyond personal gratification, accolades, or monetary gain. THIS, is for a cause! On July 16th, 2010 I was notified of my essays' inclusion in the volume entitled 'Why we wrote', a project devoted as part of a national campaign to combat illiteracy. The project is close to my heart because so many people in this country are restricted by the boundaries of illiteracy. Anyone who has ever read, knows how alternate existences are brought forth to life through the imagination sparked by literary material. Imagine a world without that possibility. Unfortunately, there are millions who need not imagine this scenario. . . they live it! 'Why we wrote' may not eradicate the problem, but it is a step in the right direction. All proceeds from this project are donated to this campaign. I do not currently have these volumes for sale on my website, but anyone interested in helping this cause need only leave me a message. I'm so elated to be part of a CAUSE, thank God!
On May 24th, 2010 '100 Portrayals through Poetry' was awarded the honor of being named a top 10 book selection on my publishers' website. Moreover, not only was my book chosen as a top 10 selection, it was chosen by Publish America's Chief Editor as the NUMBER 1 book! High praise indeed. I am humbled and honored to receive such recognition for this project. All Glory to God
