“Write that story that you’re afraid people will ask you about. That is The Town Dance for me.” – Nikki Skies
Louisiana is near and dear to my heart because my alma mater is Grambling State University. And, who doesn’t LOVE the city of New Orleans?!
I remember when Hurricane Katrina hit. I was living in Inglewood, California watching the devastation and disaster on television. I was trying to remember who I knew that still lived in New Orleans and then on the tv screen popped my ex-roommate from Grambling. She was laying on a cot at the Houston Astrodome after having been relocated from New Orleans. I was overwrought with emotion. It truly became personal.
One of the short stories in my book, Mississippi Window Cracks, is entitled When Chris Met Katrina. Being that the southern coastal parts of Mississippi were devastated too, I wrote a story that connected Louisiana and Mississippi through a character named, Chris. The anniversary of the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina is August 29th and I have an offer for you.

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.
