Hey everyone! I will be starting a weekly series of blog posts featuring Black Authors in honor of Black History Month! The posts will start on Monday, February 17th through the end of the month. In March I will resume my weekly posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

In the meantime, I encourage you to subscribe to my monthly newsletter (see the sidebar). It is chock full of the latest info on upcoming projects and events where I’m scheduled to appear.

  1. Hallo, Hallo Mr. Allen!

    🙂 I look forward to seeing your posts! I always loved to celebrate Black History Month! I always would try to find out new information about the lives of those I appreciated knowing, such as Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and of course, George Washington Carver! (my favourite inventer & scientist!) I knew more about Carver than I did da Vinci, of whom I learnt a heap about in my twenties! Inventors & innovator thinkers challenge not only our perceptions but our understandings!

    I *love!* history, always have, but I like reading & researching the diversity of history of all people and all cultures. I even would chide my schools for lacking in materials during the celebration! I tried to lead the way! 🙂 I still wish there were more writers who write diversity in their stories but in an organic way rather than in a way that doesn’t feel natural. I always write my own stories to include all the lovely souls I have known throughout my life. I even have one story from the outlook of an Indian (from India) whose sorting out her life in a beautiful coming-of age tale. We all have so much to give to each other.

    I will see you on *Monday!*, Mr. Allen!

    I am planning a lovely celebration on my blog next year,… this year I ran out of time to pull everything together! Therefore, I’m planning & organising my posts for a year from now! I’ll be ‘early’ in 2015! Cheers!

  2. Thanks Jorie! I agree and I also appreciate history and always find a way to incorporate some of it in my writing. I would like to read your story. If it’s already out, point me to where I can obtain it. If not, let me know when I can. 🙂
