While writing In The Mirror, I searched for African Americans who collected miniature dollhouses and I stumbled upon Karen Collins. What a pleasure it was to find her work. The stories she tells with her shadow boxes are astonishing. I especially love the story she tells about Zora Neale Hurston.
When I found Ms. Collins’ work, I knew I had to include it in In The Mirror and fictionally bring her exhibit to Baltimore for Jasmine to see. It works extremely well in the novel.
If you haven’t seen Ms. Collins’ work, please check her out. You will be amazed.
Tonight’s the night. I will be chatting with Sistahs on Lit about In The Mirror. We will discuss the other woman, marriage, infidelity, love, romance, friendship, family, all the things that at the heart of In The Mirror. This promises to be a very interesting, entertaining, and informative discussion. I hope you will drop by and join in on the discussion, as I’m sure your comments will give us more insight into the other woman. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to another edition of This Is Baltimore, Too.
Every September, Baltimore holds its annual Baltimore Book Festival. It is one of the biggest book festivals in the city, and it’s free to the public. It runs for 3 days and has hundreds of authors, panel discussions, readings and signings. It also has live music and food, food, food. I love the food. I go for the food as much as the books. This year I had the privilege of talking with some talented authors, who spoke enthusiastically about their work, so much so, I was ready to go home and write another book. So, sit back and watch the video and see what you can learn from these wonderful writers.
Enjoy and leave a comment.
