“Here are my current tv/film projects, so that it’s all in one place.
Also, I’m currently working on The 3rd Akata novel in the series. Note: No “congrats”, please; this is what I do and it’s not new. Just want it all clear.”

“THIS is just a hint of why I’m so proud and pleased to be working with Viola Davis on Wild Seed and in general. She moves with CLARITY.”
