I’ve been cited as America’s premier African American historical romance fiction author and I am especially known for my historical romance novels that highlight African-American life in the 19th century.
I have received numerous awards, including five Waldenbooks/Borders Group Best Sellers Awards; two Career Achievement Awards from Romantic Times Magazine; a Golden Pen Award from the Black Writer's Guild, and in 1999 I was named one of the Top Fifty Favourite African-American writers of the 20th Century by AABLC, the nation's largest on-line African-American book club. I have also been featured in many national publications, including the Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, Dallas Morning News and Vibe Magazine. I’ve lectured and given talks at such prestigious universities as Oberlin University, the University of Illinois, and Princeton.
Alongside my writing career, I speak widely on both romance and 19th century African-American history.
