Accidental Activist is now out in paperback :-)

My new book, "Accidental Activist: Justice for the Groveland Four", which I co-authored with my son Josh, is now available in paperback for the low price of $6.00. 

It would make a great gift for the activists in your circle, or anyone who wants to be inspired to take action for social justice, but doesn't know how to start. Josh's four year quest for justice for the Groveland Four is a true story, filled with memorable people, and one you won't soon forget.


Groveland Four Update!

If you've read my new book, "Accidental Activist: Justice for The Groveland Four" which I co-authored with my son Josh, you will be happy to see that history is still being made and the story isn't over yet. 

This article came out today: https://www.wmfe.org/exoneration-for-the-groveland-four-state-leaders-call-on-desantis-to-sign-order/140993?fbclid=IwAR3trDBBJ3I8mWDbtyGauRIcV_DtvMPcs8Pme8DXnwaEwQ8TzRe_BmUM4kw

State leaders are calling on the DeSantis administration to exonerate four black men accused of raping a white woman in Lake County in 1949. 

The leaders will demonstrate today in Tallahassee with family members of the Groveland Four.  

The DeSantis administration pardoned the men earlier this year. But family members, along with Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, State Senator Gary Farmer and State Representative Geraldine Thompson say only exoneration fully acknowledges their innocence.

Commissioner Fried who is on the Clemency Board says exoneration is the only way to fully acknowledge the men’s innocence. 

“And a pardon is saying almost like you have been forgiven for the acts that you were convicted of. But an exoneration says you should have never been convicted or charged to begin with.”

State Representative Thompson says exonerating the men would set a precedent for criminal justice reform in the state. 

“It would mean that we are committed to righting a wrong, we’re committed to justice, and we’re committed to racial reconciliation.”

Hooray for a New Audio book & Free Download Codes! :-D

Happy Holidays! :-D

I'm thrilled to announce that my children's book, "The Fight for Magicallus", has finally become an audio book, thanks to the beautiful narration of Sara M. Sapp. 

Check out the sample:


Here's the blurb:

While experimenting with a magic wand, two young brothers are pulled into a computer game called: The Fight for Magicallus. In the land of Magicallus, they encounter goblins and knights who are on the brink of war because their ruler has mysteriously disappeared and the knights blame the goblins! The boys learn of a frightening prophecy that foretells the end of Magicallus. They must find an ancient book hidden in a dragon’s lair before the prophecy comes to pass and they are all destroyed...

Can the boys find their way home? Will the knights and goblins go to war? Or will the dragon destroy them all? With both humor and suspense, this story pulls you in and doesn't let go.

Message me if you'd like a free Audible download code, and not just because it's Cyber Monday. This offer doesn't expire until I run out of codes. :-D
