👀 Care to guess 👀

Welcome to a behind the scenes look at one of the illustrations in my soon to be released children’s book, Dear Daughter: A Love Story. It’s an expressive story that reveals my heart through a series of short love letters to my daughter Haelee. What’s fascinating is that it’s a joint project that we’re working on together wherein she’s both the editor and publisher for this project.


As previously shared, I wrote this story not only for her but for daughters around the 🌎 and perhaps the 🌌


This particular scene speaks to one of the early struggles that I had in raising her after she came to live with me full time 😩. There was one hairdo that I got pretty good at. Can anyone guess which hairdo it was or how many hours it took for me to do her hair 🧐?


As an added bonus I will be reading a snippet of this book during the The Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) Read-a-Thon on November 30, 2021. I would like to thank Richard Ashby of Literacy Nation and FOR STO-Rox Library for affording me the opportunity. I would also like to thank Keisha Christian and Vanessa Raynor for being my sponsors.


And finally thank you Next Chapter Bookstore Gift Shop, StylzPlus, and Pishon Havilah Giftshop for reserving space on the shelves of your establishments in anticipation of my books release. Be sure to check them out now.
