Represent!

Tonight, I’m finally able to see my picture and my bio up on the Key West Writer’s Guild website! What an amazing accomplishment this is because I am the only woman of color on there! And what a beautiful representation it is for our race! I had professional pics done and so I am glowing up on their website! My mom would be so proud! She was a pioneer back in her day and I guess I am a pioneer in my own way! As I look at the picture all I can think about is how afraid I was to go to the Saturday gatherings at Key West By The Sea. At the time, I had lived in Key West 19 years and that was the whole purpose of coming to the island was to be a part of the writing community and have a book published. I have done both! It’s an amazing feeling! I thank God for his blessings.
