It’s no secret that I love Urban Fantasy. It’s one of my favorite genres along with SciFi, Dystopian, and dark Paranormals. I adore Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series and Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series. But when it comes down to it, I get all excited when I see kick-a$$ black women heroines like in Kenya Wright’s Habitat series or Seressia Glass’ Shadow Chasers series. So, there I was in the middle of writing the Soul Eater when Noelle Pierce unveils this awesome dragon fairy with two guns drawn. Why did she agree to redesign my website? Why did she provide me with this distraction? The dragon fairy princess would not stop assaulting my sleep until I wrote her introduction. I guess, it’s fitting, she is now the main focal point of my awesome website re-do so why shouldn’t I write her tale? Happy 2014! Let me know what you think of my new 2014 web design and meet Aisha, the Dragon Fairy Princess and descendant of darkness:

Writing stories that you love is an awesome vocation and I know most will say that they'd write even if they never received the recognition. I tend to agree. I must write. It's just a burning passion that I have to share my stories but it's always wonderful to receive recognition for your hardwork. I'm very proud and grateful to have received this acknowledgement. Heartfelt thanks to Angie and to all of the other finalists and winners.

I was very excited to learn of a course where students studied Black women’s speculative fiction. I would have enjoyed taking a course like that in Grad school. Several of my sister writers are being interviewed for this assignment (Kenya Wright and Crystal Connor are two that come to mind). After working with Elizabeth, I thought it’d be neat to bring Academia into the world of the writer. Here are Elizabeth’s very conscientious and thoughtful interview questions. I appreciated her hard work and thoroughness.
