Writer Statement

I love the holiday season. The sights, sounds, and smells of December fill me with inexplicable joy. I'm also an African-American woman and a history buff, with roots deep in Central Virginia. I wanted to write a story that combined all the things that I love and that I am--thus "A White Christmas in Richmond" was born.

Some of my favorite movies are classic Christmas films. Since I cannot travel to the past to cast African-Americans in any of them, it is my hope that "A White Christmas in Richmond" comes close to conjuring up that Old Hollywood magic with brown faces for modern audiences to enjoy.
