My Published Work














My books are my pride and joy. My first two books (not pictured), Atl√≥ta and My Blackberry were published by iUniverse, way back when the fee to self-publish was only $158. Also (not pictured) is a  family memoir I self-published and distributed all 2-300 copies strictly to family. I've as well omitted a few self-published poetry books I've decided to retire. The books pictured above are my best work to date, all published by OSAAT Entertainment, the publishing company I founded 2008.

With the exception of Double Dare’s 2nd edition, all cover art, illustrations, and designs are my own. Copies can be obtained by contacting me directly. Below is a current list of work in circulation.

A Rumor About One Race

It’s a funny thing, how some things you hear stay with you in that sixth sense sort of way, as if the information will serve some future purpose.

True Story. I was in elementary school when a teacher got to talking about three true races—Caucasian, Mongoloid, and Negroid, and how one day there would be One Race. For a placeholder I attended Philadelphia (PA) Public Schools, K-straight thru-12 (99.98% black student population) where there was always ‘that’ teacher who would put aside a textbook to impart ‘move to the edge of your seat’ information... something I later figured out would take “dynamic positioning” to find its originating source. I even think the teacher may have said we wouldn’t find this information written anywhere.

At any rate, I’m all kinds of fuzzy about how the original three races came to be, but recall 3rd grade hands going up in the air asking why this and how that and what about this, and then somebody saying, “unt un... my mother said...”

Naturally I was intr…

Rhyme to the Reason, Method to the Madness

Over the weekend I came across an article written by Sarah S. Davis @BookRiot. The headline article, 10 Books That Break Genre Rules, naturally caught my attention, and then really revved up my thoughts when I saw one of Truman Capote’s books included in the article. Following with the flow of the article, Capote’s book apparently broke a genre rule by mixing fact with fiction.

Now, I read ‘In Cold Blood’ by Truman Capote years ago...way back when the book was categorized True Crime. Fast forward two decades and I learned the book was a novel, which had me scratching my head, save for waving off the narrative until this article where incidentally, in the same paragraph citing how Capote’s book mixed fact with fiction, also referenced ‘A Million Little Pieces’ (by James Frey).

Without expounding too far on the subject, since this is not exactly where I’m going, yet important to include what inspired writing this post; All literature, strictly classified and by default, break ‘genre’ r…

When Opinions Cross the Line

Two literary topographies brought this historical commentary together; a social media Headline asserting some books are irrelevant, and Stacey Dash’s memoir, ‘There Goes My Social Life’. (My other thoughts here).

I didn't pause long enough to so much as note the social media headline, but did pause after catching wind of Stacey Dash's outspoken stance on supporting American businessman and Republican politician, Mitt Romney. Stacey is an American Actress notable for her role in the film CluelessSIGH—I’ve never seen Clueless, but have seen this actress in other films... which was what inspired me to want to read her memoir. Being a Big Picture thinker, I couldn't make heads or tails out of the hoopla behind her outspoken political views.

My great-great grandfather, born in America in the mid 1800’s, was a Republican. Per my father, historically the American working class primarily voted Republican, though he, and then me, marveled about my great-great grandfather's r…
