I write about Black women developing themselves through love, desire, and attachment, which at present seems to place me in the relationship novelist category. I also dabble in erotica and speculative fiction. Though my work contains romance and sensuality, it does not lend itself to traditional HEA romance. I’ve never held a fixed orbit around one lover or children, and don’t believe that a woman’s love life must pursue those endings, or that those endings necessarily constitute happiness.
Happiness is an ongoing and uncertain pursuit that requires bravery in the face of one’s fears, for none are worthy of love and none are too weak to wield it, provided they grow into what love requires. I don’t believe in happily ever after, but I do believe that in choosing love, a woman is choosing to be a better version of herself. My work is about Black women arriving at feeling amazing and seeing their shine reflected in the eyes of those they’ve chosen. Each of those arrivals ultimately constitutes a life well lived, whether they last forever or only for a moment.
