My Published Work

My writings, and my books are my pride and joy. The first two books, Atlóta and My Blackberry were published by iUniverse, back when the fee to self-publish was only $158. Other titles, with exception of my contribution to Keeping the Faith by Tavis Smiley, were published by OSAAT Entertainment, the publishing company I founded 2008.

ALSO, except for Double Dare’s 2nd edition, all of the cover art, illustrations, and designs are my own. 

A few copies of my books are for sale at the normal online outlets, however my books largely can be obtained by emailing ( or contacting me directly. Below is a brief synopsis of each. 

2015; Big Bully. Corporate Fiction centered on a male director who works for a cosmetics manufacture under two women who put his leadership skills to a serious test. He must retain newly hired diverse employees-at all cost-leading to friction in his department. Threats…complaints…intimidation…scuffles…sabotage…the Ombudsmen stepping in… and then one day arrived the Big Bully.

2015; Copy Cats. Young Adult Fiction centered on siblings Morrocon, Nica and Pillar, who move to a new town where the adventure is spiked up as they duck their father’s militant style of discipline trying to fit in with a new circle of friends that welcome them to town through a series of initiation rites.
2015; Civil Talk. The Ass. of passionate prose in motion decries…a poet has to be damn good with words. No, not just damn good with words, but be the filibuster of language, work like a clinician on jargon, a dietician on complacency, a chameleon with terms, a crusader for debate, flirty with verbs, a dirty storyteller, a mogul of expression, a totalitarian of vocabulary, no stranger to verbose propose, squeezing rhythm between muse, the chancellor of absolute prolix conflict, understanding a thing or two about going there, penning what all is saying, thinking, and doing contraire.

* Coming Soon - Anthill - Fantasy Fiction; Jubilation - Spiritual Fiction; Painted Cats - Erotica; RAPED - Contemporary Fiction; and Civil Talk2 - Poetry (revised).

the Rhapsody Series
Adult Contemporary Fiction centered on the work involved in birthing, nurturing and raising children; caring for parents, while maintaining friendships, careers, and staying committed to a marriage with the forerunning thought of keeping sane in high hopes of growing as one until death does the couple apart.

2008 - Leiatra's Rhapsody. Series one is about an educated counselor, mother, and wife who sets out to find out why men cheat in a most unusual way. Do you think you know why men cheat? Do you really want to know why men cheat? Or do you prefer to believe otherwise?

2009 - Something Xtra Wild. Series two encapsulates the heroine, Leiatra, now one wily research effort two decades later having discovered why men cheat, crossing more idealistic mores and values in attempt to reconcile her marriage near dissolution.
2010 - This One I Got Right. Series three finds Blaine and Leiatra back together, but with a simple high stakes bet on the table. Which one of their children will marry first is the bet. Whoever wins gets to have his or her sexual fantasy come true.
2011 - Rye & the Rump. Series four humorously drives two polar views of a couple still growing to know each other, while tackling everyday family issues in desire to become one forever.

It’s Official! RYCJs Top 10 Favorite Books in 2017

For those who will desire to miss it, (my You Tube video sharing what books enhanced my mood this year), I took time to spell out the list.

In no particular order:

- Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson
- Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller
- Love in the Driest Season by Neely Tucker
- Tha Doggfather by Snoop Dogg
- My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott King
- My Mistake by Daniel Menaker
- When I Was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago
- I Choose to Stay by Salome Thomas-EL
- The Journey Home by Clifton Taulbert
- Cold Hard Truth On Men, Women, and Money by Kevin O'Leary

Thank you, Authors. I HIGHLY recommend reading from this list. I've read many phenomenal books this year, and these rose to the top. Every one of the memoirs, not all written in 2017, kick-started my mood, were humorous in spots, touched me to the core, and in my estimation... promises to grow a Smart, Engaged, Literate Society.

Everyone Has a Story...

...the key is...How will you tell your story? And can you tell it well?

Just finished reading Pain Don’t Hurt by Mark ‘Fightshark’ Miller. (Thoughts here.)

How to Find Books Hard to Put Down?

Tiz’ the season, and joyously I’m starting to get in the Christmassy spirit.

I can’t count the number of reading advocates springing up everywhere posting reading and writing inspiration I respect. One of my favorites are reading lists presented in categories; 100 Books that will have your brows glued to the ceiling, or 100 Books that will have you crying the ugly face… or laughing your B-Hind off, or that other other one, among 101 plenty of others… 100 Books You Should Read Before You Die.
