While I was in Memphis for the BWABC Literary Conference, besides visiting Graceland, I had the opportunity to spend time at the Civil Rights Museum. The museum is situated at the Lorraine Motel, the site of Dr. Martin Luther King, … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I updated you on my travels. As you know, I’m currently touring the southern part of our country making appearances for my latest novel. So far, it’s been terrific!
When last I wrote, I was still in Indianapolis completing the recording of the audiobook version of Mirage. After a couple of glitches – – one day of technical difficulties and another where my voice turned on me and I sounded like Wolfman Jack, we conquered these mini mountains and completed the task at hand last Friday. Of course, my little Lola was the perfect lady throughout the recording sessions.
On Saturday, before leaving Indiana, I had the opportunity to see one of my cousins that I haven’t seen in 14 years. He took me to Cerulean, a wonderfully eclectic restaurant that he knew would be right up my alley. If you’re ever in the Indianapolis area, I highly recommend you visit at least once.

I left IN and spent a couple of days in Illinois and Missouri.
In Effingham, IL, I was able to view the world’s largest cross. It’s quite beautiful, and unfortunately, the photo doesn’t capture all of that beauty.
The next stop on my journey was to Little Rock for a photo shoot with my photographer of nearly 10 years, Lamont Campbell and visits to a few local book stores. I just about fell in love with this cozy literary haven, Wordsworth Books and Company.
