A fire spreads across a California hillside above the town of Point Richmond and claims the lives of two children. When signs point to possible Ku Klux Klan involvement, homicide detective Oliver Wright throws himself into solving the crime—but in the midst of his investigation, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. As the entire West Coast mobilizes for war, Oliver reenlists in the Marine Corps and is forced to abandon the investigation when he’s sent to work on K-9 patrol on the island of Guam.
After the war, Oliver returns to Richmond haunted by the memory of friends who died fighting, only to find himself entangled in another difficult inquiry: the hanging of an Italian prisoner of war, the chief suspects for which are black soldiers who rioted after the Port Chicago Mutiny trial. With the help of a black MP…Continue
Holidays can be great, but they can also be challenging. Each person in every family has his or her own energy, plus the collective energy of the family itself. This is true for both nuclear families as well as extended families.
It’s easy to get drawn into old or stagnant family energies and stories that may not serve or uplift you. These stories may, in fact, create inner disturbances you can’t quite pinpoint. As a result, you might find yourself anticipating stress at holiday gatherings, if not dreading them altogether. This might be because old, negative, and unconscious patterns are playing out on the current stage of your life, even though these patterns are not in alignment with your values, intentions, or goals.
Here’s an exercise for not getting sucked into powerful,…Continue
Hi everyone! This week the writer in me is feeling a little guilty. I totally meant to do NaNoWriMo, but student-me was applying for graduate school and teacher-me was busy planning fun Thanksgiving and Hanukkah activities, and somehow writer-me got pushed to the back of the drawer with all the old socks I’ve been looking for. I’m a bit sad that I’ve missed it (though I hear there is a Camp NaNoWriMo that happens in the summer? Maybe I’ll try to make a comeback during that).
Anyway, while I failed to follow through with my writing plans, I know that many of you worked very hard last month to create a multitude of varied and unique novels. With that in mind, today’s post from me will be brief. I’d rather step back and let all of you share with each other!
This week, please feel welcome to use…Continue
Hi everybody! First of all a belated thanks, here on my blog, for all the good wishes and warm words on Brooke's and my trip to Nashville last week to meet with our distribution team at Ingram Publisher Services for the very first time. The sales reps were energized and excited by our cutting-edge model, which left us feeling the same way.
In that pioneering spirit, we have another announcement to make. She Writes is partnering with a serial publishing startup called JukePop Serials to give She Writes members an exclusive opportunity to upload their work, chapter by chapter, and have it read by our community and the broader JukePop audience and voted on over a four-month period. When the timeframe is up, the three most…Continue
I’ve been asked to help start up some kind of writer’s group at my church. I already have a great critique group for my fiction, and I’m a little burned out on writing activities that are “goal” and “audience” oriented. So I’m exploring the idea of starting a writing group that is just for that — writing. Not for feedback, not for tips on publication, not to accomplish some lofty or lucrative goal. But simply to give yourself space and time for writing as a practice, and all the blessings it…

I decorate my home very gradually and particularly, refusing to exhibit anything that wasn’t love at first sight. Several walls or sections of walls remain blank canvases until I find just the right coverage. About five weeks ago, a song came on my Brenda Fassie Pandora radio station. It was love at first sound, and the second I saw the cover of the album it’s from (The Indestructible Beat of Soweto), I knew this is the visual that belongs on the lower…
