My life has had up and downs all throughout it's journey. I was the '' the second of four children in a black working class family''(Sture 1). I have seen much to what you might think is a horrible scene, to which was a normal day in my life. I have studied at some of the finest colleges to Howard and Cornell, to Texas Southern University and Yale. My life is not a sorrowful one, if it was I would not be where I am at the point in my life as of right now. First African American women to win the noble prize and to my eyes- wonderful. Growing up reading in my family was always a option, we express ourselfs through this with- religion. Maybe that is why im a writer these days ( smiles and thinks of good times). My one goal is to see that your…show more content…
I try and voice the life of the slave times and express to the people just exactly what went on behind closed doors. Maybe the situations are real maybe some are just to have an imagination. I want my reader to be invloved in what I write also ( which excites me). I like to incoorperate the black history we have lived and died through, the temptations around us, the whippings, the lost lies and the blank truths.

The style of my pieces is to embrace my reader, my audience, and myself. From my flashbacks to the future plans of my characteres. Such as Heed, Christine, and Junior, voice their own opinions in my novel Love. Reminising on times with Bill Cosey, to what they are feeling at the times telling the stories. With much imagery. Its not to tell a story,but allow a story to be created. I love to keep the plot interesting, and leave them wanting new situations to pop up in each and every crack in the books. The style is complex yet loose at thesametime. It is not only my critisism, but at the same time, your very own. Definition of style? Where I put my imagery, my diction, my lenghthy sentences, is what stlye is. I put it there for you, for myself, for my characters and my main
