I’m so glad you’ve decided to pop on by.
Wondering what you’ll find on this site? Well, a little bit of everything, but it might include mentions of some of my favorites:
My babies. Iced americanos with coconut and cream. Sunshine. San Francisco fog. Oakland sunshine. Seattle gray. Heirloom tomatoes. Dahlias. Stacks and stacks of books. Hiking and camping and backpacking and dirt. A cold glass of Chardonnay. Sunset magazine. YA lit. Riding my bike. Parks. Long walks. Zumba & my Inner Latina. Messing around in the kitchen, especially if I don’t have to clean up. The Justin Bieber holiday station on Pandora. Eating whole. The HBH (Hot Black Husband). Saint Anne. Madeleine L’Engle. BBT. Theology.
I’m passionate about living life to the fullest, my faith and issues of racial and social justice. And to me, storytelling is the way all of this happens.
So, who else am I? I write and speak and care for my sons. I am a member of the Redbud Writers Guild and part of the Red Couch Book Club team. I am the co-host of the Shalom Book Club (a monthly book club podcast), and a monthly contributor at iBelieve, She Loves Magazine and The Mudroom.
You can get to know me through my words in this post that went viral (February 2016), and in A Letter to My Mixed Son, both of which were featured on Faith It and For Every Mom. I write book reviews for Books & Culture, Englewood Review and Christian Century, and also love writing for CT Women, Women Leaders and For Her, among others.
