Hey! I’ve always been a little embarrassed about it, but I give up. After over a decade I finally admit it- I’m a writer. The reason for my embarrassment is that if you solely go by my sale numbers, I’m not a very successful writer. However, I can’t help it even without much attention, lol, I enjoy writing- A LOT! That’s why I keep doing it. I have learned that I am incredibly bad at marketing. I really like telling stories- stories that interest me about people who look like me and come from where I come from. I wish that was enough, but I guess not. Anyway, thought I’d make a post showing a few of my finished stories I’ve self pub’d on Amazon and B&N. Intention was never to get rich from my writing, but I do like to entertain folks. I particularly like to write stories set in my hometown, which I don’t think gets written about enough in any positive way. I’m talking about Mississippi- that’s where I grew up. For most of my life I lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Between the folks, the culture and the weather, lol, there is enough material to write a million stories. I don’t have a million but the few I do have I hope you’ll check out and tell me what you think. If you do and feel inclined- please leave a review here or the site where you got it from.
Here’s a copy of my query for the thriller Southern Fried Honeybee! now AVAILABLE on B&N
southern fried (adjective)
definition: crazy, ambitious and/or driven; term of endearment.
SFH is a thriller mystery about local celeb chef Charlie Daniels, an African American woman from Biloxi, MS who is being hunted by an unknown enemy. Full of diverse characters, SFH is unlike anything that is currently on the shelves. When I first wrote it, Charlie was a complete figment of my imagination. However, now I “see” her as a Tabitha Brown type just without the vegetarian restrictions 😉 .
No southern belle, dynamic Charlie Daniels is owner of the hottest restaurant on Biloxi’s Gulf Coast.

In the south to call something southern fried is a term of endearment. It can mean several things at the same time. Southern fried can mean crazy (in a good or harmless way), ambitious/driven, and/or slap your knee and laugh out loud funny. Between the heat and the hurricanes being southern fried is an expectation and a way of life.
