My Portfolio

I started ghostwriting in 2009 and in that time I have penned hundreds, if not thousands of articles and 15 books. Despite this large body of work, like all of us who've made our living as a ghost, until recently, I had very little to show for it. Six months after Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide was published, I decided I needed to change that.

Below are some of my bylined pieces.

    When the Pejorative Becomes Hip and Trendy: Finding New Descriptions for Biracial People

    Perhaps the conversation has been happening for years, even decades but because I only recently came out as multiracial / Biracial after more than four decades of identifying as Black, they probably went over my head.

    An Economy in Ruins? No, an Economy that was Ruined, and Purposely

    An edited version of this Op-Ed was published on Truth-Out.org. Unfortunately they edited out many of the most important parts that spoke about the systematic exploitation of Puerto Rico by the United States over the last 100+ years. Through no fault of their own, the Puerto Rican people have suffered through decades of heartache, disappointment, and having...

    Addressing the Fallacy and Danger of So-called Black Privilege

    Tell that to the swaths of families who, like Ms. Davis, are raising their kids to be hard working, generous Americans; whose kids are humble, respectful and see themselves as part of the community in which they live, but not necessarily the one they chose to live in. Tell that to the swaths of families...

    He wasn’t lurking in a dark alley, wearing a trench coat and waiting for this once unsuspecting and naïve little girl to walk past so he could grab me. He also never slipped anything into my drink or used my inebriated state as a reason to take me to the same dark alley I had...

    Citizen’s Arrest: Legitimate and Necessary or Concerned Meddling?

    I originally wrote this article about citizen's arrest for Red Door Magazine, a gay magazine back in July 2010. I have thought about this article a total of twice since I sent it to the editor: Once right after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by wannabe cop George Zimmerman and after the verdict was...
