Separated by a vast ocean, a rift of pain and distrust flows between two different cultures sharing the same bloodline. A misleading haunted past and an unclear future keep the two standing at distant shores. While disengagement develops in the crossfire, a romance flourishes between two opposing sides. A blue-collar African American man by the name of Tase Gilham, in his early thirties who still lives with his domineering mother, has to walk a tightrope to be pleasing to her and to retain the affections of his new love…a young African woman, Nife(Nee-feh), who is studying medicine in America. There is also a question of him being accepted by her father and family while still maintaining their cultural heritage back home in the Motherland. A battle of thoughts and differing outlooks emerge with both groups of people and within the lives of each individual member.

About the Author
My plots and characters are all true to their identity. I try to tell stories in unusual ways. There are bizarre circumstances, some philosophical views, part literary narration, and part straight talk. Depending on character or situation, spirituality in a non-religious way, and a little eroticism are sometimes in the mix. I look at myself as an underground writer…to think outside of the norm…opening my mind and expanding my soul to reach every facet of life. I try to make each book different from the last while still engaging readers and giving them that entertaining escape into someone else’s world. Many of the characters I write about may be controversial. This isn’t unusual. Because all of life is controversial.
My novel, “As I Lay, Standing,” became a finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards in 2017 competition under the category of Multicultural fiction. I have written 3 previous books under another name. “When I Love You, I Die”, “Ayna Rayne: Girl Unusual”, and “Tender Obsession.” My novel, “Ayna Rayne: Girl Unusual,” a book written under a different name, also became a finalist in the same book competition in 2015 under the General fiction category.
