My book club called Sista Chat meets quarterly and we read wonderful books. I love to read and along with my love to travel, I have traveled with my book club to Greece and Martha’s Vineyard. We have read books such as The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Martha’s Vineyard: African Americans at home on an island.
With my love to read and travel comes along JAZZ. I am a jazz enthusiast. I don’t consider jazz to be another genre such as R&B, but the real stuff!! Like John Coltrane, Charlie Bird, Theo Monk and Miles Davis. The only person that even come close to that is this young cat called Christian Scott. He is based out of New Orleans and is about 28 years of age. But he has an old soul and I love him. He is my favorite jazz artist and I have met him several times.
I am also an author and I have written 2 books: The Old Dominion Dental Society: A Path to Excellence ; Black Women Dentists: Inspired, Determined and Beautiful. I am currently working on my new book entitled “ Yellow Gal in a Cruel Black World”. When promoting my book “Black Women Dentists”, I actually went to Jamaica and had a small book tour in which I spoke to an all girls School Called St. Andrews. I encourage the young women to reach for the stars. My host was one of the women in my book who practices on the island as well as in Orlando Florida, Dr. Michelle Charles.
