Interracial Couple

Keshia Robertson Is One of the Youngest Romance Writers! Her Life Lessons & New Book

Sugar and Spice Press categorizes this juicy new book “Here’s to Hounds” as interracial romance. Keshia says, “The world has changed but mainstream romance is still considered to be white on white action. Until I see women openly reading the interracial writing world’s ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ then I won’t stop writing.”

We haven’t had a chance to read her work but we’re sure it ROCKS and wanted to show some support to the fabulous author.

Keshia Robertson is definitely a personality people will be talking about as we go forward. She believes in herself and is creating her own destiny. Her specialty is spicy and fun storytelling. Work it, Miss Keshia!

We salute this Sacred Bombshell for making her mark. She is beautiful inside and out…

I share tactics and healing techniques on how to make peace with and change the impact of the Inner Critic in the Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.

Let’s talk about it. The photo is from an upcoming shoot I did for the web series “The Drive.”

Is It a Contradiction for Those Who Profess Self-Love to Wear Makeup, a Hair Weave, Push Up Bra, or Stilettos?

“The Sacred Feminine Law of Nizhoni, Beauty as a Spiritual Practice:

The Sacred Bombshell embraces beauty as a spiritual practice. She knows that at any moment she can make the decision to be beautiful or to enjoy beauty. This is sacred Nizhoni.

The bombshell need only rise to her true magnificence and step into her greatness. All beautifulness or ugliness she sees in her world shines forth from her. The beauty she admires in others is her own divine light being reflected.” –Excerpted from The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love
