Love's Troubadours' characters are  African American, Afro-Latina, Afro-Thai, Afro-Hindu, Black British, and Afro-Russian. Some wear locs, naturals, and processed hairstyles. Whatever way they choose to express their outer selves, I think you will find them incredibly fascinating. Some practice yoga, meditation, mantra chanting, Christianity, and Buddhism. They are straight, lesbian, and gay. Photo Credit: NY Association of Black Journalists Mixer: www.nyabj.org/category/announcements

The characters in Love's Troubadours struggle with their emotions, choices, experiences, and relationships on some level. After all, they are human!

They end up deeply wounding themselves and others.

This painting is really special to me. I created in honor of my best friend Deno Moss. We worked on the novel Love's Troubadours for two years before he died. The painting is called A Tribute to Deno, One of Love's Troubadours. It appears on the back cover of the novel. I gave it to his daughter Jordan as a gift.
