Hey, folks! Remember this little girl’s name and face because I’m certain you’ll be seeing her on your TV screen in the very near future! Kaliyah is a little girl with a big dream. Lucky for her, she has a mom who is willing to help her make it happen. Not long ago, I did an interview with Officer Deon Joseph, a.k.a. The Skid Row Cop. Well, he knows Kaliyah and her mom, Emmethia. A couple of weeks ago, I saw one of these videos below on his Facebook page and immediately became interested in Kaliyah’s story. Watch them and then see what Kaliyah’s mom has to say about her talented daughter. Hi, Emmethia! Glad to have you! E: I’m glad to be here. Thanks for having us. My pleasure! So, tell me, when did Kaliyah start showing signs of talent. E: Well, she originally started doing pageants at the age of eight months and continued … click here to read the full article.
I’m not exactly sure what this post is going to turn into. Maybe I’ll post it when I’m done and maybe I won’t. News of Alton Sterling’s death hit the news yesterday and post after post has shown up in my newsfeed, but I haven’t been able to watch the video. Not sure if I ever will. The videos from incidents in the last couple of years have done me in. My background . . . I grew up in a diverse neighborhood. My family and social group were and are both quite diverse. I’m not trying to wear that as a badge, it’s just how things are and I wouldn’t change a thing. So, while I will never know exactly what it’s like to be any other race, I’ve witnessed prejudice and racism first hand and I’ve had numerous discussions with people I trust about issues that some might find … click here to read the full article.
Guest post by Faith Blum Last July when I wrote the novel that inspired three novellas, I had no idea how pertinent they would be to my life as I edited The Solid Rock. Some of the themes tackled in TSR were depression, trusting God no matter what, and doing the right thing even when it’s hard. In July, it was easy to write that because it was such a great month and everything seemed to be going well, especially my writing. I wrote about 60,000 words in 32 days. By hand. Then a couple of months passed. I don’t remember exactly what was going on at the time, but when I started reading through TSR and editing it, I was feeling a bit down. Not quite depressed, but not joyful. And trusting God and doing the right thing were a bit challenging for me at the time. I honestly … click here to read the full article.
Hey, everyone! I am so excited to share my most recent interview with you. Please welcome Officer Deon Joseph, a.k.a. The Skid Row Cop. His work as an advocate for the people of Skid Row has garnered a lot of much-needed attention to the problems that plague the homeless in Los Angeles. He does it with heart, hard work and when appropriate, humor. He’s very entertaining! Before I go any further, let me tell you something. Many of you know that I’m from Topeka, Kansas. We’re the capital, but not all that big. I pay a lot of attention to things that concern the homeless population locally, but I’d never heard of The Skid Row Cop in L.A. One day, I saw the below video on the internet. Not only was I intrigued by the subject matter, but it came at a time when our news was filled with a … click here to read the full article.
Hi, everyone! So I have something for those of you who read my debut novel, Memoirs of a Girl Who Loves God. I’ve been working on the sequel since last year and it’s about 2/3 of the way done. I know, I know. I’m slow. In my defense, I’ve written nearly three novelettes in between then and now including, That’s How She Rolls which is available in the anthology titled, Where the Light May Lead. If you haven’t downloaded it yet . . . what are you waiting for? It’s free for now, but won’t stay that way forever. Currently, I’m working on a short story that should be finished this week. Well, the first draft anyway, then I promise I’ll get this sequel book wrapped up. I don’t have a title for book two yet. In fact, I don’t even have the cover. A photo-shoot is on the horizon. In … click here to read the full article.
guest post by Alex McGilvery Eighteen months ago I worked full time as a minister, wrote books and edited two or three books a month for other people. Today it’s a struggle to get up in the morning. I work on a bit of editing, and occasionally get some of my own writing done. It started as pain, the more we treated it the worse it got. I finally decided to stop all the pain meds to learn just how bad the underlying issue was. In the meantime, pain spiraled into depression which had me staring at the ceiling trying to find the energy to get up in the morning. At the same time, I started struggling with words and memory, and self-discipline had vanished as if I’d suddenly become ADHD. It was all just too much work. I went on disability just before I began the process of quitting … click here to read the full article.

There are many reasons I have kept it a secret but it has come to a point where I feel the need to share it. It was a hundred and two degrees with what felt like a thousand percent humidity as we tracked through the ancient forests. Our guide, a flat nosed Montagnard with a slight orange tinge to his hair hacked away at the overgrown forest in front of us. The cultural attaché from the government trailed behind us clucking … click here to read the full article.
