    CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS AND NOMINEES OF THE AMB OVATION AWARDS!!!

    I feel honored that WORK IT OUT, MJ and Dylan’s story, was nominated for Outstanding Debut Author in Interracial Romance 2015 (Congrats, K. Alex Walker!). It could not have happened without you (readers).

    You may check out the category around the 12:00 mark in the video……

    Thanks, guys!!!

  2. Thank you and congratulations to all the winners! Thanks to the organizers and readers who nominated Knowing Vera for Outstanding Multicultural Romance of 2015.

    I’m blown away by the recognition of winning the Outstanding Author in Multicultural Romance 2015 with my book, Knowing Vera, a love story involving a disabled athlete. What an honor to be among such fantastic writers who are pushing the boundaries to tell the stories that need to be told. I’m inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED talk to ensure multiple stories for people of all cultural backgrounds. I appreciate the stories of all the people around me, and I love a good romance no matter the circumstances. Thank you, Angeline Bishop, and all the fabulous people who made this award possible.

    My category is at the 4:38 mark in the video. Once again congratulations to all the winners and nominees. I’m honored to be named among you.
