Something True: An Honest Space is my blog.
When I was a college student, I started a blog to write about things that made me laugh or surprised me, and to reveal parts of myself to the cyberworld that I didn’t always feel comfortable sharing within the confines of my small, conservative college environment.
I think my first blog title was “Former Wonder Woman Wannabe.”
Over the years, I found that keeping up with posting on a regular basis was a tall order. Often, the regular things of adult life crowd out any space and energy we might need to do anything remotely creative, such as writing.
But when Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd were killed and their murders captured on camera for the whole world to see, the anger and indignation I felt in my bones found a way out of my body through the tips of my fingertips, as I began writing my first real series: Peace by Piece, which will soon be published is now my first book, published with my dear friend Melissa Miller through her company SlyGirl Publishing House.
I hope that in Something True you will always find just that: truth. Even if you don’t share my perspective, can’t relate to my life experiences, and don’t agree with my politics, I hope that with each blog post, you’ll be able to find a nugget of truth to take away.
Welcome to this space, where I will always lead with honesty.
