My mom the wannabe writer and me…

the poet, memoirist, blogger and aspiring children’s book author. I was in my parent’s beautiful spacious master bedroom and I saw my mom lying across the bed with a copy of a novel by Black woman writer Octavia Butler. Octavia Butler as far as I know writes Science Fiction. She may write in other genres. I thought there’s my Hunter College CUNY educated mother who took a Writing course at NYU my dream school. She is holding a book by an actual Black woman writer Octavia Butler author of Kindred. I thought of my memoir teacher Edvige Giunta and how she told me she thought Jamaica Kincaid would be a good model author for me. Jamaica Kincaid writes beautiful prose and it is her own writing. I love it! I am a poet, a memoir writer, a blogger and an aspiring children’s author.
