About the Book

Poetry has always been a way for me to express myself, inspire and uplift others. Working with “The CHARLES UNGER Experience” has given me the tools that I needed to develop my rhythm with verses that express language. The collaboration is an intensity of my imagination with the innovated sounds of the musicians that I have worked with. A vast variety of my poems has been a reflection of music that were written by the amazing “Charles Unger, and awesome Music Director “Sam Peoples.” Can’t Wait, is a collaboration from the CD Around the World, and Mr. 2am is from the CD Mr. 2am. The Charles Unger Experience has brought many musicians together the sounds that they bring has created a pass for me to create a platform to entertain an audience that enjoys the Art and Artists.

Because I was raised by an awesome grandmother that was an inspiration in my life always encouraging me to write.

I was born in a small town Alexandria, LA where I attended school, also Grambling College where I learned to communicate with other students realizing that I had so much in common with them.
