I am a teacher and consultant by day and a book lady by other day. Black Book Lady is my little blog, a site dedicated to uplifting literary arts from the perspectives of Black women and other women of color. I center Black women and femme writers. BBL (yup, we are reclaiming that acronym) also aims to provide inclusive space for other writers committed to ending oppression. So welcome. Grab a cozy blanket and stay in the books with me for a spell.

Oh, also I write…
