I've been working diligently on fine tuning Iniko. I'm very excited about this novella and the bonus material that will be included. Are you ready to meet Mawu? She is a beautiful West African Earth goddess who is kicking butt while pregnant. That wasn't elegant was it? LOL!

I’ve been working on my latest project. Iniko is a short novella about the bi-racial daughter of the West African goddess, Mawu. This project has been intense and emotional but I believe that readers of the African elemental series will be excited. There’s plenty of sword action and of course, controversial issues that relate to Africana women. So far this series has tackled, domestic violence, female genital mutilation and now trokosi slave wives.

Alicia kindly asked me to come and talk about my website, Alien Star Books, how it all came about, and what I’m doing with my vast proceeds of 54 cents for the past year. (Ummm, nothing, they don’t pay out until you’ve reached $10!)
Can African Americans come to know the African Gods and Goddesses like the Greek, Roman or Norse Ones?

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been working on the foundation of my upcoming African Elemental series. In some ways, it’s been an adventure. Research always does that to writers. It’s a form of the creative process or creativity. Because I write dark paranormal, I don’t have to be as historically accurate or as precise as other authors. But it begs the critical question, when you’re unfamiliar with a culture or tradition, how far should you go? Then it dawned on me, why am I so unfamiliar with West African gods and goddesses? I don’t seem to have this disconnect with Greek, Roman, or Norse ones. What’s up with that?
