Raw & UnCut

A Little Some of Me

I'm still working on my audio books, trying to get all of my work on audio, but for the interim of time I went ahead and had a snippet of my poems uploaded to my website.  Tried to get it on my blog, but took a minute too long to get it to work. 

At any rate it's raw, and uncut, but should give some idea of my rhythm and style.

Click the LINK. And/or go to the WORK PAGE.


  1. Do your thang, over there in Philly, girl!. You've inspired me as well. Love your work and of course, that attitude and knowingness in your voice. Great rhythm (had the darnest time trying to spell that word).

    Are you selling audio too or is that promo for your site?

  2. I know...rhythm gets me too...kinda glad these systems have spell check now, otherwise that's one word I'd have to tear out of the dictionary and keep somewhere close by. LOL.

    But thanks Tosh, and yeah it's just a promo. Just pulled a few pieces out of my poetry book to give a little idea (per request;-) of GEM's rhythm;-)

  3. Thanks Lola. I enjoyed your blog as well. Looking forward to visiting again!

  4. I've been trying to listen but link isn't working. Is it my computer?

  5. Hi Val... on the work page click the icon furthest to the right.
    thanks for stopping by.

  6. Thanks I got it finally. I enjoyed your poem very much.Thanks for sharing.

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
