Just a quick blog post today to share my absolute FAVORITE Author. J. California Cooper. If you're a lover of African-American fiction, you are truly doing yourself a disservice if you haven't read her work. Her writing draws you completely in and brings out emotions you have that were just underneath the surface on so many topics, love,betrayal, self-esteem,family issues, you name it.
Ms. Cooper passed away in 2014 and what a legacy of literature she has left for us. Also PLEASE don't be put off by the fact some books are comprised of short stories. Each story is fully developed with amazing characters.
