I was born and raised in the Charter Twp. of Royal Oak, MI and Detroit. My parents put me in Catholic School at a very young age and it became a significant part of who I am today. We were baptized and became a part of this Catholic Community which I write about in my book titled: Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African American Catholic Community. I love old buildings and things of historical significance. Losing our church is what inspired me to write about its history. Seems everything around me was closing and so I tried to capture it and an old train station in downtown Detroit.

Sleighed For Sure!

The author knows how to work with a story. Her descriptions are cleverly worded. An example is this ... "Open every day except Christmas and Boxing day." Boxing Day? I love that! How about Cerious Clae. That's the name of the chief

Shirley Linda, you are one of a very few people that I know over here. I don't do too much over here except read RRBC books and somtimes I post them here. Haven't done a whole lot of late but at some point I will jump back in. I'm glad you are here.
