Journey of Another Story…
Connecting a broad cross-section of readers with a multicultural cast of characters belonging to populations historically underrepresented in publishing. With attention to character and the progression in character development, my books bring together people of different ethnicities, religions, and political leanings, most of whom are marginalized, by steadily and skillfully crafting three-dimensional personalities which enrich the literary landscape of fantasy, horror, and historical fiction.
Why I Write
Books and movies about characters who looked like me are read and viewed out of duty to learn something about the past. Books and movies that showcased the pleasures of dreaming, imagination, and escape were stories about people who did not look like me.
