Author Kelly J Morgan has entered the literary world with a novel that will trigger conversations, debates, and intellectual observations for years to come. You Sound White is the story of protagonist Tallulah and a cast of young aspiring African-American women five years post-college. Her writing career has not taken off as she has planned and she is working three jobs to makes ends meet. She has grown up in a world that judges her on her skin color and how she talks. Her life takes an unexpected turn when she befriends a homeless woman named Lily. Tallulah realizes that there is a story there and as Lily’s past materializes, her own life is illuminated and dissected in ways she could have never imagined. You Sound White removes the urban veil away from the most radiant character interactions you have ever read with poignant dialogue that rides along a pragmatic plot that will have you hanging on each and every chapter. Author Kelly Morgan writes like a seasoned veteran and has elevated the expectations of debut works. She is here to slay.
If a lie feels like the truth, yearns to be the truth – can it become the truth?
Orphaned and destitute on the streets of Idi Amin’s Kampala, a National Geographic dream is born. Joseph and Maya forge a new family to escape the horrors of bloody dictatorial rule and enslavement in Uganda, only to replace it with a more insidious oppression in Boulder Colorado. Their dreams shattered, Joseph must save his sister, his love, from their family.
A journey of love, pride and childhood resourcefulness, as the power of two children’s dream deflects the grotesque abuses from those who would protect them.
