AUTHOR - ROC THE WORLD: HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE (co-author, Henry L. Jones). Published in 2008.

Preview of ROC THE WORLD:
My life as an African American writer, columnist, talk show host and single parent has given me a unique perspective on human nature. People are really interesting. If you just spend a few minutes with someone to share ideas and dreams, you can become a more enriched person. I know there are people who try to suck away your spiritual energy. Avoid them. They're leeches! They're takers not givers. You always have to keep room for yourself and your environment. That's all we have to keep us sane.

Ask for ROC the World at your local book store.
