Hello Everyone,

First let me say sorry to all of you for being away so long. Alot has been happening and I had not been able to update my blog since November.

At this current moment, the email at Hobbcat is down so if any of you would like to send me an email or have anyquestions about my work or just want to say hi you can reach me at bklynfilm@hotmail.com

Big things are coming up on the horizon and I would like to share that information with all of you.

I have completed my first collection of horror stories which will include some of the ones you have seen both on my website and on writerscafe.org. No official release date has been set of them but the target time is sometime in the fall. I will keep you posted on the details of that.

I will be doing a major overhaul of my website soon with a new logo and look. Also in the works is an exclusive trailer of A Gamble of Faith that will be seen on my site. Production has begun and I'm sure you will really enjoy what you see.

Kats In Motion is working on new Bobbie and Peanut comics and they will be available soon. If you have not seen www.katsinmotion.com please check it out and drop us a line.

Finally, my new novel The Hooky Party is now in it's final stages and should be available to you all by June. The following is from the back of the book:

A story that combines street smarts with a morality lesson, The Hooky Party is set in 1990 during the final days of the senior year at JT Samuel, a predominantly black public high school in Brooklyn, New York.

Upon learning the new principal has cancelled their beloved Senior Cut Day, seniors Marc Price and Michael Starkes plot to throw a huge Hooky Party as an act of defiance. With the aid of their buddies, Anthony and Horace, they hatch a plan that looks flawless. But looks can be deceiving.

Can they pull off the party of the year, a social event that somehow manages to bind the class nerds, the cool, the jocks and the thugs together in harmony … and not get caught?

A light-hearted mixture of caper and conscience, The Hooky Party is a serious-but-funny look into the lives of African American teens with a lively cast of characters who explore friendship, loyalty, true love, and learning to take responsibility for their decisions.

I won't say anymore about the novel only that you should keep an eye out for it in June.

Until the next time my friends, take care and we'll talk soon.
