Power of the Pen!

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost.

Interview with African American author Jacquitta McMamus

I love reading and reviewing children’s picture books. I think it is so important to expose all children to reading at an early age. After having read so many books, one thing that stands out is the lack of books with children of color. This is what propelled me to self-publish my first children’s book: Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle. This topic got me interested in interviewing authors of color. My desire is to help promote them and the contribution they are making to the…

Walk This Way

Steven. Tyler. You had me at hello.

I think it is finally safe to say I no longer mourn the loss of Simon. My hate mail to the Idol Producers for letting him walk has come to a screeching halt and after watching just 4 episodes with rock legend Steven Tyler at the helm, I’m saying something like “Simon…

Bumping Elbows with Gwen Stefani at American Girl Place



Ben had a conference in Chicago this past weekend. The conference ran both days, so we all drove down with him on Sunday so that the girls and I could spend the day shopping [and going to the public restroom every half-hour]. Whereas Ben spent the day sitting in a lecture hall taking notes on building Drupal modules for six hours. Sounds sexy doesn’t it?
