Her first novel, Frostbitten was inspired by many of the trials and tribulations she encountered as a young black professional, professing Christianity. This fictional story depicts the life of a young black female who transitions into 'Corporate America' from the confines of a familiar and comfortable ethnic and socio-economic background. The setting takes place in the late 1980's and bounces between Philly and suburban Detroit.
The book is currently available in local bookstores and over the Internet. The CD-ROM is available exclusively over the Internet at www.yicpublish.homestead.com.
