Make Your Writing Bloom: A 7-Day Journey for Replanting Zest in Your Writing
Make Your Writing Bloom is a tool to help writers who are stuck get unstuck. Through a seven-day process, you will examine and write about your love of writing, your favorite writing experiences, the fears and daily goings-on that usurp your writing, and the work needed to blend writing into your busy life. Once you complete those “therapy” sessions, you’ll be ready for the last leg of this journey: picking a story idea, doing some timed writing, and planning your writing for the next 30 days.
If you’ve lost your zest for writing, Make Your Writing Bloom is the book to help you reclaim the zest and put pen to paper. You can purchase MYWB as a paperback or as a Kindle book!

Sometimes life is stranger than fiction; take the lives of mystery novelists and twins, Jovan Parham-Anderson and Cheyenne Parham.

Before she can confront him, tragedy strikes her home, and Jovan must deal with the fact that the careful, safe life she had with Cordell was merely smoke and mirrors.

Into the Web, book 2 in the Double Inkwell Mystery Trilogy
The minute twins and mystery novelists Jovan and Cheyenne Parham find their lives settling into a nice rhythm, all hell breaks loose–in their personal lives and in the latest crime they find themselves mixed up in.
Jo is trying to build a relationship with Mark Brockman, but the deaths of her husband and Mark’s wife, and the sordid nature of their coming together keep her from jumping into the relationship with both feet. Cheyenne is head over heels in love with former detective-now P.I. Ian Davenport, but unexpected news and Ian’s involvement in a new case causes Chey to second guess the deepness of their love. Trying to figure out their love lives becomes all the more complicated when Jo and Chey are thrust into a series of kidnappings and murders involving young girls who seem to make the wrong friends online. When a mayoral candidate’s daughter is kidnapped, Ian finds himself on the case, much to the chagrin of Chey considering he spends an awful lot of time holding and caring for the candidate’s wife. Bringing the girl home safely and finding the killer pushes the twins to the limits of their personal and professional lives.
Going into a web of infidelity, lies, deception, and murder often leaves all involved in disarray. Will Jovan and Cheyenne find themselves, once again, trying to pick up the remaining fragments of their lives once this is all over? Purchase your copy of Into the Web today at Amazon!

Shonell loves writing short stories. She finds them difficult because a writer has to practice deft word economy, but she loves the challenge of developing a short story that’s worth reading! Her first published short story, “1-800-Hot-Talk,” was published in the still popular anthology Chocolate Flava. The anthology, Oil and Water…and Other Things That Don’t Mix, presents her story “Fellowship at Hardee’s,” a story about a young woman traveling on a Greyhound bus who finds her troubles intermixed with the drama of faith and sexuality that presents itself along her journey. In the anthology, The Corner Cafe, Shonell’s story “I Wanna Get Off Here” features Bay, a woman trapped between the dream of being an author and the reality of being in an abusive relationship.
Saying No to the Big O
PR agency owner Daphne “Daph” Collins has a revolving door of men to whet her sexual appetite and has never been turned down by a man–much to the chagrin of her best friends. When one of her friends bets Daph that she can’t go a week without having an orgasm, she scoffs at the idea. That is until Daph meets Rick Bowen, a devastatingly handsome man that cuts down every one of her advances. Disillusioned by her first rejection, Daph accepts the bet. Surely, she can go a week without giving herself or receiving from another an orgasm. Things get real quick when Daph’s next seven days find her juggling all the men vying for her sexual attention, feeling shame for her promiscuous ways from her very married mother and sisters, and keeping her libido cool while she actively pursues Rick, the one that got away. Will a week change Daph’s insatiable ways, or will she return for more multiple O’s with her male friends? Purchase your copy of Saying No to the Big O today at Amazon!
