#thehustle

Excerpted from my personal/writing blog:

Writing is how I make life, but it’s also how I make a living. When I started this site, it was primarily to promote my books

and connect with readers, but as it’s evolved, other bits of my personal and professional life have migrated here as well. The work I do for hire as writer and editor is the most obvious example of this; a blatant push to use this platform to attract clients. That’s my hustle; writers have to make a living too and I’m happy even with the ups and downs that I can make it doing what I love. As with my own writing, I do my best for my clients. Read on for Client Reviews and more.

I’ll end with a nod to some other Caribbean writers trying to blend their passion into that thing which pays the bills without losing their passion for it: Sandra Sealey, Summer Edward, Shakirah Bourne, Brenda Lee Browne.
