Kingdom writer, word warrior and novelist is how I describe my writing journey. I am hardwired to write things that highlight Yahweh Elohim including my fiction stories. My mantra is, Yahshua, The Messiah (Jesus The Christ) is author and finisher of my faith and my fiction.

Although historical and romance novels are favorites of mine, I write multiple genres about all sorts of things that inspire, inform, and entertain. I have an affinity for stories depicting the African American experience in the United States. I also am starting to write more nonfiction. The one constant in my writing is to point to Yahweh through human interest or experience. I'm an avid reader with a variety of other interests. If you'd like to learn more about me or

Triple Crown Fever

I like horses. They are third on my list of favorite animals.  Though I’m not a gambler by nature I do love watching horse races. I have never bet any money on a horse but I get just as enthusiastic as the people with the big bucks on the line. I pick my favorites and cheer them on with the passion of a woman with her life saving in the balance. I was woefully dashed when California Chrome was sid

This Biography started out as a repeat of YES I CAN, which I'd just read. But once I got past those chapters it was okay. It covered his life as he started getting older with his third and final wife. The underscored theme seems to be how he was driv ...more

Yes I Can by Sammy Davis Jr.

An eye opening narrative of a multitalented man who broke the glass ceiling for African American entertainers in several areas. He had issues for sure and his life could easily be described as a train wreck in many ways but despite his misfortunes or ...more

It was a good read as most of the BJ series is but a bit junky. By that I mean the crucial characters were a bit confusing and perhaps too many in number. There was too much other junk that did not enhance the storyline at all but made it confusing. ...more

Excellent Allegory and on point biblical messages. John Bunyon was certainly ahead of his time as a writer. The issues of that period are very much like those of today. So this centuries-old allegory is still very relevant and necessary in the twenty ...more

“The rest of my life is going to be the Best of my life!”
Marlene Banks

“You never can tell what two people in love will do or how things will turn out. What they say and what they do can be very different from what they feel. How they act often makes no logical sense.”
Marlene Banks, Son of a Preacherman

“I don't anxiously take in what people say about other people and judge them solely on that basis. I measure a person by how they treat me and what I see in their character.”
Marlene Banks, Son of a Preacherman

“The rest of my life is going to be the Best of my life!”
Marlene Banks

“The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time.”
Francis Chan

“If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Chance is perhaps the pseudonym of God when he does not want to sign.”
Théophile Gautier

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
C.S. Lewis
