Guess what, y’all!
Filming for Water started about three weeks ago. And let me tell you, it has been an amazing experience. When I wrote Water In A Broken Glass over sixteen years ago, I never thought this would be happening. I dreamed about it, wished for it. But I don’t think I ever believed it would really happen. Or maybe I did and that’s why God let it be.
Where should I start. Okay, first, in case you don’t know, Water the film is directed by Jamelle Williams-Thomas. She is a DC based filmmaker and owner of Lodge Street films. Jamelle contacted me back in 2009 and asked for the rights to turn Water In A Broken Glass into a film. So, it’s been a long process, some ups and down, but here we are some six years later and Lodge Street Films along with IKam Productions are in Baltimore shooting this film.
Baltimore. My city. All my novels take place in Baltimore, because I love showing the side of Baltimore people rarely focus on. And don’t think the characters in my stories don’t have any problems. They have plenty. They just have something other than drugs and killing on their minds. Baltimore is way richer than that. So it’s cool going to different areas of Baltimore filming. So far Jamelle and her film crew have filmed on the campus of Morgan State University, at The Book Escape on Light Street, Whitelock Street, Nubohemia Café and Lounge on Biddle Street, in the Arts District on Guilford Avenue, Druid Park Lake Drive. They are truly doing Baltimore justice.
I will try to write something every day about the making of Water. Next I’ll talk about the cast and crew. Stay tuned. Love you for all the support y’all have given me over the years.

Love y’all for all the love and support.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love horror books and movies. I blame it on my mother, who used to read Stephen King novels to her children when we were small. One of the things I love most about horror are zombies. I love watching zombie movies. Don’t ask me why. It’s just fun to watch. So, you know I love The Walking Dead. It is by far my favorite television show.
Recently, I had the fantastic opportunity to meet a guy by the name of Zomb-G, also known as Wyzae Crankfield. And guess what. He’s a zombie! Yep! And he’s from Baltimore. So you know I had to interview him for This Is Baltimore, Too. Wyzae Zomb-G is a very entertaining and interesting dude. Check him out, and you will find that he is also very intelligent and inspiring. You know that’s how we do at This Is Baltimore, Too. So, check out his story and See What’s Good In Your Baltimore Neighborhood.
Baltimore filmmaker, Antonio Jefferson, is shooting a film and he will be using In The Mirror in a scene that he’s filming today!!! Antonio has produced a number of short films and now he is working on a feature length project, which is what Mirror will be in. Is that cool or what? I’m so excited! Again, y’all thanks for the support. And I’ll let you know when the film is done so you can check it out. In the meantime, check out Antonio’s films.
Michael and I are having a great time with This Is Baltimore, Too. We have several episodes coming, such as writing in Baltimore, The Return of Fun Day at Arlington Elementary, author and playwright C. Hines Early, The City Lit Festival, and much, much more.
Around 2 this morning I finished editing the piece about track and field coach Etosha Bakari. The only thing left is for me to put in the narration. This has been a fun trip. Etosha is a wonderful and she is doing great things in Baltimore. I can’t wait to introduce you all to her. The piece should air on Wednesday, March 27th. So stay tuned for the new and improved edition of This Is Baltimore, Too.
