Happy Birthday Angela Davis, Anita Baker–and Me!

I’m sending a big “THANK YOU” to my readers who sent me birthday greetings last week.  I’ve always been proud of sharing my birthdate with two dynamic sisters, Angela Davis and Anita Baker.  So proud, in fact, that I gave a shout out to them in my five star novel FANTASY!  Below is the section from FANTASY that contains my homage to them.  (If you’ve not read FANTASY as yet—featuring its beautiful full figured heroine–follow the link to Amazon to read the first chapter FREE!) http://www.amzn.com/B00LJLIZE2
