I definitely want to give a shout out to my mom, who celebrates another great year of life today! My mother has always been very supportive of my desire to be a writer, and honestly, sometimes I think she believes in my potential for success even more than I do.So, hugs and kisses for the woman who was both my mother and father for the better part of my life. I'm so glad we got to spend some time together last weekend.
My mom is a special person, for sure, and is part of the inspiration behind Vernita Burton, one of the lead characters in my novel Blackerwelder: 2164. So as you read Vernita, you can catch just a bit of a glimpse of the real person. Love you, Mom.
