The joy in my heart when I received that email, I can’t describe it. Becoming an author has been a dream of mine for a while but to actually see your name in print. The official release date for The Chameleon is July 12, 2019.
To everyone who pushed, encouraged me, I give you one million kudos. And to the spark behind Redbaby Publishing, Mommy I love you.
Fear is a funny little word with a huge impact. Merriam-Webster has two definitions, a noun and verb. The intransitive verb definition is “to be afraid or apprehensive”. I like to think fear is also stifling, that it freezes your thoughts and actions in a vegetative state.
And for years that’s exactly where I was. Mind you, I am and was quite productive in a lot of things. But the one thing I am most passionate about, being an author, fear is quite real. Ponder that for a minute. Was it my fear that I couldn’t finish a novel? Or maybe I put too much thought into would people like it or relate to it? Maybe my fear of failure, that I would publish and nobody would read it.
My friends tell me that I am the great optimist. I see the glass half full. I see horizons when the shore and the playing fields are the most bleakest. I have faith and belief in a power much bigger and stronger than I. So why should I fear this?
I’m taking a deep breathe and pulling up my breeches. Diving into the unknown, but I’m a quick study. My excited outweighs my fear. And no matter what I’m pressing forward.
Bye fear!! It’s my time to rise.

The novel is finally completed. The editing is done. Next step is to publish. With that said, today starts RedBaby Publishing, the publishing arm for Jones Harwell. Trust me it will take some work. For me, the end results is that I stepped out of my comfort zone to create, build and pass on to my children.
“Real One – Boss”. Yeah, I like the ring to it.

Music plays a tremendous role in my writing moods. I can draw a scene from rock, r&b, hip/hop and neo-soul, smooth jazz, any genre of music. What inspires your creativity?
