Introduction I am a lecturer, screenwriter and the author of several novels and a civil rights memoir. I was raised by civil rights activists in Miami, where I was a reporter and columnist for The Miami Herald. My major works include the the Tennyson Hardwick mystery series (with Blair Underwood and Steven Barnes), my African Immortals series (MY SOUL TO KEEP, THE LIVING BLOOD, BLOOD COLONY), JOPLIN'S GHOST, THE GOOD HOUSE, THE BLACK ROSE (with the Estate of Alex Haley), FREEDOM IN THE FAMILY: A MOTHER-DAUGHTER MEMOIR OF THE FIGHT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS (with my mother, Patricia Stephens Due). My husband, Steven Barnes, and I also sold a screenplay adaptation of my novel THE GOOD HOUSE. A house haunted by a curse and memories. African immortals with healing blood. The ghost of Scott Joplin. I often write about the supernatural, which is my favorite prism for glimpses of our shared history and humanity. With this blog, I want to provide a forum for readers to share their thoughts with me. I hope you enjoy your visit!
