“Water” in the Baltimore Times Newspaper

I was fortunate enough to be featured in an article written by reporter and playwright, Ursula Battle in The Baltimore Times newspaper.  Click on the link and read all about Water the film, which is based on my novel, Water in a Broken Glass.  Thank you all for the support and love you are showing Water.  I truly appreciate it.  None of this would be happening without you.

Water and the Hampden Branch Library

I had the most marvelous time at the Hampden Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.  Devon, the branch manager, set up a theme in the library based on black art and water, including bottles of water from all over the world.  It was one of the coolest things anyone has ever done for a discussion about Water in a Broken Glass.  Speaking of discussion, it was so awesome.  Everyone really enjoyed the characters, the art in the book, and the way Baltimore is represented.  Devon appreciated the mention of the Pratt Library in the book.  If you have a chance, please visit the library.  It’s small but so adorable.  You will love it.

I thank the Hampden Branch for having me and all the people who came out to support me, which includes my mama and my husband, Michael.

Here are a few pictures.  Enjoy.

Page Turners Book Signing

I had the most marvelous time at my book signing for the Page Turners Book Club.  It was held at the Woodlawn Library and boy when I say they pulled out all the stops, I mean they pulled out all the stops for me as an author.  Delicious food, great crowd, insightful conversation about the book, and even a replica of the broken glass on the cover of Water In A Broken Glass, created by Rosa Stone.  That was simply amazing that she did that.  Also, I want to give a shout out to some of my fellow authors who came out to support me and the Page Turners: Rosa Griffin, Wilma Brockington-Parker, and Leroy McKenzie.  Every author should be spoiled in the way the Page Turners spoiled me.  They are truly an awesome book club.  Thank you so much.

The Artist Exchange Radio Show Interview

Jamelle and I had a wonderful time with host Nate Couser and Big Mama Ama on the Artist Exchange Radio Show.  We talked about everything having to do with my novel, Water in a Broken Glass and the film Water, based on book.  Nate and Ama asked some very intriguing questions.  They did their homework and had a genuine interest in the novel and the film.  I’m usually very nervous during an interview, but they had me completely at ease.  Please take some time to watch us and continue to support The Artist Exchange Radio Show.

Liberty Lite Bookclub

I had an absolute ball with the Liberty Lite Bookclub.  Everyone was so welcoming and we had a great discussion.  I love it when readers can tell me things about my work that I didn’t even see.  I want to thank Liberty Lite Bookclub for featuring Water in a Broken Glass and for loving it as much as I do.

Promoting Water the Film

On Wednesday, January 25th, Jamelle and I had the wonderful privilege of being guess on Channel 13’s On Time show with host Marcus Washington.  It was a great interview.  Jamelle did a better job of talking about the film than I did.  I was so nervous.   But I had fun.  The show will air Sunday, February 5th at 6:30 AM on Channel 13 in Baltimore.  I hope you will be able to tune in.
