tiresome tuesday

applaud Her broken heart poetry
then pass Her a notepad and fresh ink

She dies when rape is spoken of so desensitized.

Like a chipped fingernail or
wrecked car She can call and get
a claim number for
It doesn’t get renewed!

She just let it get used and disown its’ power
so next time he wants to
punch it
or break her back
or dig in dem guts
It won’t hurt
Her.

I confronted my homophobia.
I re-defined my definitions of rape.

You should write your truth

Lorna Simon has plans to diminish her resume of safe journalism and be known for reporting trendsetting stories.  Certain that she can persevere her impressive family linage within her carefree lifestyle s a social butterfly, this notion is put under fire after a night of partying thrusts Lorna into being a news maker instead of a news writer.  Lorna alleges she has become the victim of a sexual assault crime committed against her by a woman, Trista, who is a promising event planner and an associate of Lorna’s mother.

Paralyzed with humiliation of  having to publicly defend her sexuality as a heterosexual, Lorna must decide to believe in her bouts of memory loss and forego the incident or rekindle her passion for journalism to protect her livelihood and uphold the integrity of her family.

We’re in the UK today with The Town Dance!

Hi All,

Today we are in the UK at Carole’s Book Corner promoting The Town Dance!  If you haven’t read the synopsis yet, go check it out.  If it’s your cup of tea, buy a bag to take home to enjoy later.  Well, you know what I mean… buy the book 🙂

This is day three for the release of my debut novel and the response has been amazing!  People are full of conversation after reading the book because of the story.  Let me explain…

When I began research on the top of same sex assault, all erotic/exotic stories and topics came up during my internet research.  This presumably has to be the thoughts that come to mind when people read the synopsis.  It is assumed to be about lesbian rape or an assault between two lesbian women.  It is not.  Nor is it an erotic exploit on two women sexually engaged.  It’s not a fantasy  It’s a story loosely based on a friend’s experience with same gender assault and breaking her silence some 15 years later.  If it happened to a friend of mine… it has happened before and thereafter.  I took a risk and chose to write about it.
