Join us at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour! (Sun 1st Oct)

The Kings and Queens Book Tour starts next week! Come and learn the secret science to Black Male & Female Relationships!  Have you got your tickets? They’re going fast!

I’ve invited TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ and King Kevin Dorival, author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ to join me from the USA, to share some important information that will help us elevate ourselves as a commUNITY, and regain our rightful positions in society!  This is no joke…

As I was writing the First Edition of my Self-help novel (then titled ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!) I woke up in the middle of the night and ‘auto-wrote’ the scene where Suzanne and Charles performed their first sex ritual.  By the following year they went on to build a multi-million pound business!  46,000 words of my novel were ‘channelled’, which meant I didn’t have to think about what I was writing, it came through me rather than from me.  When I published the e-book on Amazon, I did a search for it (as you do when you’re a new author!) and TC’s book ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ came up beside it as ‘recommended reading’.

I was curious so I ordered it, and lo and behold, his book explained the whole science behind what I thought I’d made up!  It took me a few years to get in contact with TC, and I was ecstatic when he agreed to come to London to share this knowledge with our commUNITY!

King Kevin Dorival contacted me last year and asked me to write the Foreword for his book ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘.

I was happy to, as the King/Queen theme run heavily through my books, art and poetry!

(My painting ‘My King’ features in Year Five of my Revised book, now titled ‘Journey of a Sister’)

King Kevin had also referenced TC’s book in his, so I invited them both together, to join me in getting this important information into our commUNITY, is this is the key to us elevating our relationships and re-building our empires! Our ancestors built great civilizations by harnessing their sexual energy and using it to create.  In order to regain our rightful positions in this world, me must get back to practicing these ancient rituals!

I now truly believe that this is the reason why there’s a covert operation to keep the Black Man and Woman apart – because we’re powerful together, when we’re operating on a high level of consciousness! (this relates to the crown chakra, hence the title of the tour).

If you have a religious mindset, the very word ‘ritual’ might seem off-putting, but as I explained in my novel, the word ritual is found in spiritual!

In today’s society, the sexual act has been degraded, and we’ve been taught to dissipate our sexual energy instead of harnessing it.  Most people only operate from their lower, animalistic nature when having sex.  But did you know that there’s ‘another level’ you can reach in your sex and spirituality?  This is what you will learn when you join us on the Kings and Queens Book Tour.  On Thursday 5th October from 6-9pm TC Carrier will be doing a Lecture on ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘ – don’t miss it!

On the same day from 2-5pm, King Kevin Dorival will be running a workshop to help you identify what type of Queen you are, so you can attract the right type of King.  Each of these workshops are only £15, attend both for just £25.00 (use the same link to book individual workshops).

Join us at the Launch on Sunday 1st October!

Meet the Authors at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour on Sunday 1st October, 1-3pm at 146 Queen Victoria Street, Blackfriars.  I will be interviewing TC and King Kevin, and this will also be your opportunity to ask us any questions!  The topic will be “What does it mean to be a King or a Queen?” reserve your  ticket now – limited seating, all we ask for is a donation towards the tour to cover travel, accommodation, and meals etc.  Myself, TC and Kevin have so far used our own resources to put this tour together, any amount whether small or large will be greatly appreciated!  From 4-7pm both authors will be on the Panel at the Kings & Queens United event (same venue), your ticket price includes a meal, to book yours >> click on this link <<

TC and King Kevin will sign your books at the Launch, order them online if possible so you can read them ahead of the tour.  You can order your signed paperback of ‘Journey of a Sister’ below, with FREE postage in the UK:

Join us on the Kings and Queens Book Tour (London) 1-8 Oct!

Black History Month is an opportunity to explore how our past has affected the way we relate to each other today, and what we can do to heal, so that we can reclaim our greatness!  Our ancestors built great civilizations, and the key to us rebuilding our empires is buried in our DNA.  How did they do it?  It was connected with their sexual energy. In today’s society, we are taught to dissipate our sexual energy, instead of harnessing this powerful creative force.

I have invited two authors from the USA to join me on the Kings and Queens Book Tour, (1-8 Oct), which will cover North, South, East and West London!

 King Kevin Dorival is author of ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword), and TC Carrier is author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘.   Their books compliment my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘, and all 3 books will help YOU on your own journey of Self-discovery and Self-healing, and help you re-member your power as a melanin-rich being!

What does it mean to be a King or a Queen? (How can you tell if you are one)  How do you become one? (if you’re not already) What TYPE of Queen are you?  (so you can attract the right type of King), What happens when a King finds a Queen?  (What can they achieve together)

Come and find out in a series of Book Signing & Discussion Events, Workshops, and Lectures!  (This will also be an opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens, or King and Queens in the making).  The schedule is as follows:

Sunday 1st Oct, 146 Great Queen Street, Blackfriars EC1V 1-3pm (FREE – donations welcome)

Join us at the Launch of the Kings & Queens Book Tour, where you’ll be able to meet both authors for the first time – and myself of course! I will be interviewing King Kevin and TC Carrier, and this will also be your opportunity to ask them any questions!  The topic of discussion will be ‘What Does it Mean to be a King or a Queen?‘  Come and join in the discussion! Monies cannot be collected at the venue, so if you would like to make a contribution to the Kings & Queens Book Tour, please do so when you  >> Book your tickets here <<  (will go towards travel, accommodation, meals, filming, photography, marketing etc.)

(especially if you’re raising princes).  Both Kevin and TC are youth mentors in the USA,  and are keen to connect with the youth in our community, especially those who are struggling with the system.  It would be a good idea to purchase your books online and read them before the session; If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow both e-books from their lending library FREE!   Order the paperbacks in advance, read them so you can join in the discussion, and they’ll sign them for you on the day!

These are more intimate workshops with each author; from 2-5pm join King Kevin in a Workshop to identify What Type of Queen Are You?  Knowing your Queen Type will help you can attract the right type of King! Then between 6-9pm TC Carrier will be doing a Lecture on his book ‘The Secret Science of Black Male & Female Sex‘.

The Ankh Wellbeing Centre will be serving delicious vegan food, which you can purchase in the break.

Friday 6th Oct 6-8.30pm, Chestnuts Community Centre, N15  (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

In conjunction with Find Your Voice (bro Dougie from SLR radio), this evening is an open Discussion on the topic ‘What Can a King and Queen Achieve Together?‘  We will be exploring how our ancestors built great civilizations, and what we need to do to reclaim our greatness!  Surprisingly, within all the Black ‘conscious’ organizations I encountered in our commUNITY, none of them were doing this! >>  Book your tickets here <<  All our books will be on sale, but you are advised to purchase online so you can be more informed to join in the discussion! (See links to purchase books below)

Saturday 7th Oct 2-9pm @ Maat Centre, Tottenham N17 (£5-£8)

2-4pm Youth Session: Courage to Believe/Black Son Rising (£5 in adv, £7 otd)

We are inviting community organizations who work with our youth (especially those being let down by the system) to bring them along.  Both TC Carrier and Kevin Dorival are youth mentors in the USA, and are keen to have an opportunity to mentor our youth in the UK too!  What strategy should our youth be using to vent their frustration, instead of taking it out on each other? The entry fee is to cover the cost of the venue; if you are a black business or entrepreneur and would like to sponsor (pay for) our youth to attend this event, please contact me or the organisations to pay for them to attend, or just go to the Eventbrite page and pay, and donate them to the organization of your choice, such as Manhood Academy, Black Child Agenda, or Mentor Kings.

6-9pm Book Signings, Discussion & Entertainment! (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

The topic for this evening is ‘When Kings Meet Queens!

What happens when a brother and a sister unite in a high state of consciousness?  How do we achieve this state?  What is blocking our progress as a commUNITY?  How can we heal the damage caused to our DNA through slavery and colonialism?  Come and discuss!

Between 5-6pm there will be entertainment (including poetry by myself, dance from Julius of StepFreeDance, and music), food and drinks will be on sale, and you can also get your books signed!  Are you a King looking for your Queen? This will also be a great networking opportunity to meet other Kings and Queens (or Kings and Queens in the making)  >>  Book your tickets here <<

**There are a few stalls available for £20 each, visit the same link above to reserve yours**

Sunday 8th October 5-7.30pm @ Brixton Library, SW9 (£5 in advance, £7 otd)

Topic: Rebuilding Our Empires

This event is the culmination of the whole tour, and is your last opportunity to meet King Kevin and TC Carrier before they head back to the USA – if you’ve read their books you will surely want to meet them and get your books signed, if you haven’t done already!  We will have an open discussion on ‘How do we begin to rebuild our empires?‘ (our relationships, family and commUNITY).  How do we reclaim our rightful position in society?  What needs to change, for this to happen?  

We will also be discussing how we can carry on the work once the book tour is over, and how YOU can get involved!  There will also be giveaways, prizes, and lots of interactive discussion!

It costs £70 per hour to hire Brixton Library (with a discount!).  I’ve kept the ticket prices for each event as low as possible, just so you can attend at least one, and to make sure that you can still get the books!  This is not a profit-making venture, but something I’ve put together to help us as a commUNITY to heal.

Purchase your books in advance and read them before the tour, so that you can join in the discussions from an informed perspective; they will only have a limited amount of books with them, so purchase your book online, and they will sign it for you at the events!

Review: African American Research Library Book Festival

I just got back from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where I took part in the African American Research Library & Cultural Centre‘s Annual Book Festival, courtesy of King Kevin Dorival!

The building itself was amazing; the equivalent of The Marcus Garvey Library, The Black Cultural Archives, and the Bernie Grant Arts Centre all under one roof! The library also has a state-of-the-art Theatre, and Black History Museum.
On Friday we were taken on a tour of the building by Essy, the Director. We were able to see some of the African artefacts they had accumulated, including some which belonged to the founder of the library, Samuel F. Morrison.
I also got to interview Samuel F. Morrison in the flesh! He is the visionary behind the library, who raised the $60,000,000 needed to build it. It was great to see that they had created a legacy for him while he’s still alive!
Later that evening I was one of the authors who featured in ‘An Evening with the Literary Stars‘, an exclusive evening where we got to pitch our books to the audience for 5 minutes each.
The following day was open to the public; I was on the Romance Panel with two other authors:
We had a lively discussion and afterwards, audience participants purchased their signed copies of our books!  (King Kevin Dorival was also on the panel).

The Kings are Coming!

King Kevin will be coming to London for the Kings & Queens Book Tour taking place on the 1-8th October.  We will be focusing on his newly-released book ‘7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire‘ (I wrote the Foreword).
King Kevin has informed me that  he’ll be on the look-out for his Queen, so ladies, read his book!

I managed to interview King Kevin before I came back to London:

TC Carrier, author of ‘The Secret Science of Black Male and Female Sex‘ is also coming to London to take part in the Kings & Queens Book Tour!
The reason I’ve invited  both King Kevin and TC Carrier to London to take part in the Kings & Queens Book Tour is because both their books compliment my Self-help romance novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘.  All 3 books will really help you on your own journey of Self-discovery!
Tickets will also go on sale shortly, and you’re advised to get yours early – it’s going to be SOLD OUT! (don’t say you weren’t warned!)
The tour will include Book Signing & Discussion Events as well as Workshops; ‘What Type of Queen Are You?‘ ‘What is Spiritual Sex?‘ Come and find out!  Order your books and read them in advance, so you can join in the discussions!

No Ordinary Woman Chat Show Interview

NOWLast October I attended an event where I met Caz Mac, who was in the process of setting up the No Ordinary Woman Chat Show YouTube Channel.  She would be interviewing a number of ordinary women doing extraodinary things! I gave her a signed copy of ‘Journey of a Sister‘ to read.  Some time later she contacted me really excited, having just finished reading the book, and invited me for an interview!  We had a good connection because she identified with a lot of what I’d written about.  In this interview I share my inspiration behind writing both books, but it’s mainly focused on the one she read.  The video launched on the No Ordinary Woman Chat Show YouTube Channel last week, and is available to watch NOW! (No Ordinary Woman) 🙂

First Video in my series: Why the Black Woman MUST Heal! (HAIR)

I recently became clear about my Purpose: It’s to ‘Help the Black Woman to Heal’ just as I am; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually (including from ancestral trauma). We MUST heal in order to truly love ourselves. And Self Love is the ROOT CAUSE of many of our issues, especially our relationships!  It’s important for us to heal for a number of reasons; we are the core of our commUNITY. We are the ones raising the next generation. We are the core of the family. If we don’t re-build our family structures by re-building our relationships with our MEN, we cannot re-build our commUNITY!

This is the first video in my series ‘Why the Black Woman MUST Heal!’ which is all about our HAIR:

When we as Black Women ‘RE-MEMBER’ Who We Are, we will naturally develop Self Love, which doesn’t rely on outward appearance, it comes from deep within.

If you would like to join me on this journey of Self-healing and Self-discovery, start by reading my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ from Year One FREE!  In it  shared everything I discovered after asking God for “the Truth!” in a beautiful, Black Love story format!

If you identify with the topics raised in it, consider joining me on our Self-healing journey, by coming on The Self Love Retreat in the Gambia in November or December (subsequent dates may follow). I’ve organized for us to spend 7 days at the Healthy Ways Foundation, with authors of the cookbook ‘Spicy Tasty Vegan Cuisine’, Dr Joe Gregory and Naasira Angeela Bledsoe. Not only are they our hosts, they have a wealth of experience regarding relationships, healthy eating, and much more to share with us! There are only 6 places on each Retreat, to ensure individual attention. (You can choose either from the first two weeks in November, or the first two weeks in December, 12 women each month)

If you would like more information about The Self Love Retreat come to the Taster Workshop on Saturday 1st July being held at Intuition House, Borough, South London (right next to Borough High Street station); the cost is just £25 which includes a FREE copy of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’, and if you decide to sign upon the day, the cost of the workshop (£25) will be deducted from the price of the Retreat! (£100 deposit will secure your place, the Retreat is priced at an introductory price of just £599!).

If you are unable to attend the Taster Workshop on July 1st but are interested in joining me on The Self Love Retreat, email me: cezanne@journeyofasister.com, and I will set up a Skype call to share the information!

All the topics covered in my video series ‘Why the Black Woman MUST Heal‘ are raised in my Self-help novel.  Order your personally signed paperback for just £9.99 with FREE delivery in the UK!

Why the Black Woman MUST Heal!

Over the past two weeks, I’ve become crystal clear about who I wrote my Self-help books for, and who I want to work with (predominantly).

Are you a Single Black Woman seeking to meet and marry your soulmate?

Are you in a relationship, and would like to know how to sustain it long term?

Do you have Self Love and Self Worth Issues? (be honest with your Self)

As a Black Woman raised in the UK in a Christian home, I received no love from my (single) mother, was indoctrinated into a religion which kept my mind in a fearful box, and received negative affirmations which seeped into my subconscious mind and became the program I ran on as an adult.  As a result, I grew up lacking Self Love, had poor Self-Esteem, and struggled with Self-Identity.  These in turn affected my relationships with my partners;  I turned down two opportunities to marry soulmates, and had my children with two men who either I didn’t truly love, or who didn’t truly love me.

My poverty mindset (received from my religious upbringing and negative affirmations as a child) also affected my ability to generate financial abundance.

Can you relate?

I know many of us share the same story, and it’s my job to work with you to help us heal – together!

Black Women Heal

I’m starting a series of videos explaining ‘Why The Black Woman MUST Heal!‘ from this week!  These will cover our Hair, Skin, Body Image (how we perceive ourselves), Ancestral Lineage, operating in our Feminine Energy (as opposed to our Masculine energy), Sex & Spirituality, Mindset (including mental health), learning about The Power of our Womb and Yoni, Child-raising, and much more!

All these topics are also raised in  my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’. I would love for you to read it so you can get an idea of where I’m coming from, and whether I’m someone you’d like to work with in your own Self-healing journey.  Start by reading Year One FREE! (<<< click on the link)

“I Need a MAN!” has gone VIRAL!

My poem “I Need a MAN!” has gone viral!  It’s been on my YouTube channel for over 2 years, but it wasn’t until my friend Gary downloaded it from YouTube and converted it into a regular video, that it has suddenly gone viral!  it’s been shared extensively, you may have seen it in a Whatsapp group, or on Facebook?  One of the videos posted in a FB group had over 800 comments, and 22 shares!

As is to be expected, the comments were both positive and negative, and people were questioning whether I was that woman, or just acting.  So I thought I should at least explain my thinking behind the concept!  First, here’s the video:

The original version is over 9 minutes long, and embodies 5 different types of Black Woman; The Career Woman (at the beginning of the video), who has spent the best part of her life building her career.  It has paid off in terms of material possessions, but her lack of investment in her relationships has left her man-less.  The poem also features the Conscious Sistar, the Single Mother, the Religious/Church Sister, and ‘Miss Bootilicious’, who is in touch with her sexuality.   (I’d say, there’s a piece of me in all of them!)

They all need a man, but they all have different needs!

For the record, I don’t live alone (I have three ‘suns’), I’m still working on having all the money in the bank I need, I don’t go ‘out with the girls’, I don’t have a King-sized bed, etc. etc. But I DO like ‘fullly melanated’ brothers, I DO need someone who’s business-minded, and am remaining celibate until I meet ‘The One’!

I wrote “I Need a MAN!” in 2009, which mentioned doing the ‘6 Month Test’.  When I was led to write the book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ in 2013, it explained how to do the 6 Month Test fully. (FREE to download when you subscribe, or available on Amazon or Lulu in paperback).  This was not a conscious decision on my part!

Much of what I write is ‘auto-written’, (meaning I don’t have to think it up, it just comes through me).  The 6 Month Test will help you to avoid jumping into bed with a man (or woman) until you are sure the person is right for you.  It will help you build a solid foundation upon which to build a committed relationship leading to marriage as opposed to long (or short) term dating.

The poem was also an experiment in the Law of Attraction; what would happen if you get really clear about what you desire in a man (or woman), and write it down?  The power of the written and spoken word, is what this poem is all about.  Watch my recent live performance of “I Need a MAN!”

Listen to the full length version on my Soundcloud (some naughty bits in it, but nice!)

Today is Black Woman Heal Day!

Today is officially Black Woman Heal Day, founded by Lilada Gee in 2015.  The aim is to organise events, write blogs, and create forums where sisters can get information, share stories, and empower each other.

I would have liked to organise an event this year, but I’m attending the Woman to Woman Conference today, so I’ve decided to write a blog instead, with the aim of organizing an event next year…

Why The Black Woman MUST Heal:

The Black Womban is the Original Woman, the ‘Mother of All Nations’.

It has been scientifically proven that the oldest human remains is of a Black Womban.

She carries the original gene: Mitochondria DNA.  Men do not carry this gene, it can only be transferred from mother to child, which is where I believe the word inHERitance comes from! (I’ve covered the topic of MDNA in Year 8 of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’)

There is a secret war against the Black Womban; to prevent her from ‘re-membering’ who she is, to degrade her image (and that of her male counterpart) in order to destroy her family, and ultimately her whole commUNITY.

The Black Womban is the core of her community; in order to heal our community, the Black Womban MUST heal – for the sake of the next generation!

The Black Womban, being the Mother of All Nations, is pow-HER-full!  But we have forgotten our power.  Many of us have issues to do with our womb, relating to the foods we eat, the products we put on our skin and hair, and the toxic men we sleep with.  In order to heal, we must return to nature!  In order to heal our relationships, we must begin by healing ourselves, starting with Self Love!

Self Love A3 Poem

Ways we can heal:

  • Get in touch with our True Self, by spending time alone, sitting in the Silence, meditating, praying, taking notes.
  • Read (and implement) Self-help books, audios and videos that help us return to our natural state of being.
  • Get into nature at least twice a week
  • Use natural skin and hair care products (these sink into your bloodstream!)
  • Grow natural! (There’s a section in my novel which will help you innerstand why this is important)
  • Exercise your mind and body daily
  • Eat foods provided by Mother Nature
  • Learn about the power of your yoni and womb (covered in Year 8 of ‘Journey of a Sister’)

In a society which has turned everything upside down, where the truth is now a lie, and a lie is now the truth, it doesn’t take much to realize why the Black Woman and her male counterpart is under such attack.  Yet WE have the power to turn everything the right way around again!  We are POW-HER-FULL!

The source of our power is in our EMOTIONS and our INTUITION.  Yet if we continue operating in our masculine energy instead of our feminine energy, we will never be able to tap into our full pow-HER.  We will never take our rightful position on this planet , next to our Black Man, reigning side by side.

As melanin-rich people, we are naturally spiritual, and naturally sexual.

Religion has played a big part in separating sex from spirituality, but in this time we MUST heal, and put the two back together again.  I have gone into much more detail about this in my novel, preview Year One FREE! (click on link to open)

Book Launch Review!

What can I say?

We had a wonderful time at the Book Launch & Discussion of my revised Self-help book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger‘ –  it wasn’t video’d (apart from the Facebook Live my eldest sun did with my phone!), but photographer George Eyo captured some of the event:

book-launch-6-11-16-1

Five of the brothers who contributed to the book were on the Panel, which worked really well in terms of helping to open up the dialogue.  It was good to see so many brothers in the audience too!

Feedback from Suraj Odekunle, Panel member:

“Great vibration at sister Cezanne’s book launch today. Good hearing the different perspectives from brothers & sisters within the Nubian community.
Great atmosphere just like how the Nubian community should be with more reasoning, no arguing nor being disrespectful.

Glad to be in that environment, instead of being in the ‘IN-CROWD’,  which makes me claustrophobic and anxious. lol

I learnt and listened more than I spoke.

It’s a blessing to witness the birth of Afrikan couples bonding together to make a spiritual commitment on spending the rest of their lives together. So today I put my 2pence in and expressed why I feel Afrikan tradition of bondage is important and why the Anglo-Saxon way of marriage isn’t meant for our people.”

me-reading-htg

I explained that I revised the book to take into consideration some of the things that had been discussed at previous Book Signing & Discussion Events, such as “Is the ‘white wedding’ a Black Thing?”  

I also explained how I was inspired to introduce the ‘DIY Arranged Marriage‘, and how it has helped me avoid emotional heartbreak.  It involves doing the 6 Month Test; if you follow this process, you stand a much better chance of choosing the right partner before you give your heart, and of getting the ring on!  (If that’s your desire).  As a result of an email I got that morning, saying that the book should have ‘success stories’, I decided to invite other sisters and brothers to go through the processes set out in the book with me to attract our soul mates; if you are interested in taking part, from preparing to meet your soul mate, to attracting your soul mate, to the whole dating process, message me below – it’s FREE!

Siayoum (second in row from left), one of the main contributors to the book, explained what ‘the ring’ symbolized, and while we embraced the symbol, we questioned whether the whole ceremony of signing the register was necessary, since it is a contract with the government, and nothing to do with a Spiritual Union!

“Amazing event from Sista Cezanne Taharqa about her book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger‘.  I didn’t speak much as usual but I was fully immersed, listening and taking mental notes” ~ Toma Teme

“Thanks for a very warm and special event” ~ Paul Nelson, Author of Ego of a Grasshopper

“I thoroughly enjoyed your book launch and I am glad that I went. Although, I had mixed feelings in regards to your current book ‘How to Get The Ring On Your Finger’, and it being an all male panel. But I was glad to hear from their perspective than from it being all women.
Moreover, I explored the area of being single first and foremost is fundamentally important: to learn, to grow and love one’s self before going into a committed relationship.
Also, I’m currently reading your book, ‘Journey Of a Sister‘, which I am totally addicted to! I’m already at page 43 and can relate to the main character big time!
Thank you sis for all that you do. And keep rising in your power – Asè.”~ Camillea Johnson.

I met some of my Facebook friends for the first time, including Robbie Tate who bought both books:

me-and-king-robbie

We didn’t discuss my revised Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ (previously titled ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!‘) because no-one has yet read the two new chapters I’ve added!  (Years 12 & 13).  If you purchased the First Edition, you can get the second Edition for only £5 at my events!

Those who bought books were also gifted with a laminated print of my art!

My books and Book Signing & Discussion Events are my contributions to help us heal individually, to heal our relationships, and ultimately to heal our whole commUNITY.

My next event is being held at Brixton Library on Sunday 18th December from 2-4pm; I’ll be doing a workshop on how the colours in my paintings (which I’ve used to illustrate my novel ‘Journey of a Sister’) can help with symptoms of SAD:sad-workshop-flyer

You’ll be able to purchase signed copies of the book on the day, with my artwork in FULL COLOUR for only £9.99 each! (they make great gifts!)
