I’ve wondered when she would finally publish and as of March 24, 2015 she has. Her first publication Yo’ Sista’s Keeper: A Collection of Poetry, Short Stories, and Other Stuff” is a great collection of some of the most profound and amazing poetry and stories. The book is now available for paperback purchase on The ebook is forthcoming.
