In Search of... Book Review

Special thanks to the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder for doing a review of my book! Click here to check out the full review!

Summer Reading

My 2017 summer reading list. Some of these I've never read, some I want to reread with my current mindset and views of the world. I'm a deliberately slow pleasure reader since I take the time to digest the content, writing style, word choices, etc., so I doubt I'll finish all these this summer...but I'm still gonna challenge myself. In between the vacations, cookouts, and trips to the pool, I encourage you to take the time to read something and feed your mind as well! And feel free to add my books to your collection :-)

Catholic Review Article Published!

Latest article I wrote that was published in The Catholic Review about two cousins who devoted their lives to service.

Third Cousins Continue Family Tradition of Religious Life

A month or two ago, my car broke down at an intersection. There just so happened to be two white cops there who saw my disabled vehicle. They literally stopped traffic going both ways and helped me push my car to the gas station across the street.

With all the tension that revolves around mostly white police officers shooting unarmed black men in this country, the question America needs to ask is this--how do we weed out the white cops who shoot a stranded black motorist, as the case in Tulsa, and keep the ones who'd rather help that same black motorist, like in my case...? How do we keep the white cop who pulled me over only to inform me my registration was expired and to get it checked out, and get rid of the white cop who pulled me over out Whitemarsh in Baltimore County and threatened to bring the drug sniffing K-9 to the scene because he saw on my license I lived on Park Heights, a neighborhood in Baltimore City that ain't exactly the safest...?

When we figure out the answers to questions like those, maybe then we'll begin to make progress as a nation. But until we all agree that a problem exists to begin with, we will be stuck on a treadmill, going nowhere fast.

Long time no update! My short story collection is almost finish. Just need to put the finishing touches on the final story. I forgot how long and exhaustive this process is. Writing, editing,'s definitely not as easy as some think it is!

Thanks to all of you who have been staying on me to finish this project and supporting me. Between work, life, and everything else in between, this has been a long time in the works. Hopefully I can finish it up ASAP and put it out there in the universe.
