“No Fat Chicks”: Overcoming Body Shame and Living in Authenticity


“No Fat Chicks”: Overcoming Body Shame and Living in Authenticity is my journey to building a leadership business while working to improve my own perception of my body. I have experienced bullying and harsh rebukes about my appearance for years. What does God have to say about that? I wondered if He had a plan for me, given that my appearance was apparently unpleasant for people. Others couldn’t see me being the woman He wants me to be because I was overweight, not pretty enough, or not “eye candy.”

I believe being authentic about what has happened to me will encourage others to find the courage to walk through doors of opportunity waiting for them. With God’s help, I’ve been able to overcome body shame. I believe this book will help you, your family, your friends, and your teenagers understand their worth and walk firmly in the path God has established for you and for them. This would make an excellent women’s small group study or small group study for teenage girls.

Dark Tunes


A band of young, aspiring musicians move to St. Louis in hopes of jumpstarting their careers. They quickly find lodging and practice space in an abandoned girls’ high school. Loving the amazing acoustics of its  chapel/music room, with no concern over neighbors complaining about their music, they find jobs and begin to settle in. When stories of odd disappearances around the school are coupled with eerie first-hand occurrences, they begin to question the magnitude of malevolence that lurks within its walls.

Deadly-Gangsta “1”


Deadly-Gangsta “1” is the autobiography of Lorenzo Petty, Sr. Mr. Petty has been proclaimed by law enforcement and the news media as one of the most dangerous gangsters that prowled the streets of St. Louis during the 1970’s. Former local newsman, John Auble, included the Petty brothers in his novel, The History of St. Louis Gangsters.

Lorenzo grew up during a time in St. Louis when poverty, degradation, hate, and crime were woven into the landscape of black ghettos. He decided early in life how he would survive: he would employ the laws of the jungle and demand respect. Lorenzo’s life was not unlike that of the multitude of young black males who were trapped in a bottomless pit, and who resorted to criminal behaviors in order to survive and obtain material possessions.

Deadly-Gangsta “1” characterizes descriptively, how a young black man from St. Louis could grow up and become a ‘menace to society’ on the wrong side of the law. The story is honest, edgy, and captivating” -Judge Greg Mathis.
