From Muse to Reality

Fiction, Politics and Essays

Closing 2014


History of my work ending 2014 –not included are numerous essays and articles.

Several friends and editors have been my angels during my journey through literary-land.

Zaji, my professional editor, designer, and truth-teller. Would not let me off the hook. (Ha!) Priceless.

Barbara Bernard, true friend, editor, and another truth-teller. Love her like a sister. I wish for her better health in 2015.

Idrissa Uqdah, PR mentor, marketer, long time friend introduced me to writers’ Internet sites. She’s another angel.

Sheila Peele-Miller (not related) an old friend and writer who walked with me through my journey for years.

Donald R. Barbera, writer, journalist, photographer, and another great mentor. Maybe even a brother by another mother. {Smile} He knows what I mean.

George and David have had my back for years in all respects. We are going to grow old together.

Ella Curry, Black Pearl Online Magazine, believed in me even when I doubted myself. Her marketing efforts are priceless, truly.

Evelyn Palfrey’s writing and reader group are all fantastic dives.

My support-readers are too numerous to type here.

I know, I breaking all the writing rules here. But that’s OK for now.
