At the age of 7, I discovered a love of magic and mystery after receiving a magic set and my first Bobbsey Twins Mystery book. Today, I am an award-winning poet and author, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Mystery Writers of America. I’m also a life member of the Society of American Magicians (which was once led by Harry Houdini) and charter member of the International Association of Black Magical Artists. My greatest joy is making stories appear out of thin air.
