Woman On Top


 Once hailed as the Queen of Philly's nightlife, Tiffany Johnson-Skinner now reigns as its prominent First Lady, standing proudly beside her husband, the charismatic Mayor, Malik Skinner. Tiffany is the first to admit that she doesn't have the perfect life, especially with the demands on her husband, caring for her daughter, Nylah, and working with Blessed Babies, her budding charity. But since she once ruled the streets, Tiffany should have no problem ruling the city, right? When her husbands' arch nemesis, former District Attorney, Gregory D. Haney III, reappears, Tiffany may have to revert to some of her old ways to keep her happy life. She and Mr. Haney share a dark and storied past and Tiffany will stop at nothing to keep it buried before the secrets and lies destroy everything she's worked to build.

My Writing Roots

More than I wanted to be an activist, more than I wanted to be a lawyer, and certainly more than I wanted to be a runway model, I wanted to create moving poetry, and thought provoking, and sometimes provocative books, and now, that's exactly what I do, AND I LOVE IT!

Creative Juices

My favorite part of the journey happens anywhere and often unexpectedly, at the market, driving the car, at the office, and even during lovemaking. Whenever it happens, I capture it by picking up a pen, speaking into my phone, calling a friend and asking them to remember - and if it's the middle of the night, I simply reach over in the dark and usually without my glasses and scribble on a bedside notepad in the dark. Because if you don't capture it at that moment - it's gone!
