I WON ‘International Artist of the Year’ in the Spokenword Billboard Awards!


Billboard AwardI would like to thank all who voted for me to WIN ‘International Artist of the Year’ in the Spokenword Billboard Awards 2014 (USA), I couldn’t have won it without you!

The award is still in the USA; I was on a 10-day tour of Ghana with The Calabash Hub when I heard the news!   (read all about it in my previous post!)

Here’s my Acceptance Speech, which I recorded before leaving the UK:


I‘m currently in Ghana on a 3 month Writer’s Retreat (doing research for the sequel to my novel), before heading to the USA to collect my award, and to perform poems from my two CD’s Seeds of Love and Rise of the Phoenix at as many poetry events as I can!

Do you like the designs?  I did them my Self!

My next goal is to win a literary award for my novel Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual! It was nominated for two awards this year: ‘Best Perfect Bound Collection’ in the Spokenword Billboard Awards (it features my artwork and poetry), and I was also nominated ‘Best Author’ in the Beffta Awards!  I’m currently revising it and will be sending it to Literary Agents with a view to getting a publisher’s deal to write the sequel!
