Me? Planning A Wedding?




I’m not the girly-girl type. I’ve never been. Yet here I am looking at venues in preparation for what some call, the most important day of my life.

The scheduled date seems so far off. I’m nervous. I’m anxious. And above all I want this to be the start of something sincere and amazing in my life.

One thing is for sure. I don’t take myself too seriously. So if I fall on the way down the aisle I’ll get up and laugh. If the cake breaks on the way to the table let it crack. Because I know when it’s all said and done, the only thing that matters is being with the one I love forever.

Wish me luck on quarterbacking my big day. I’m going to need it.

I Hate Valentine's Day



I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day, but it isn't because I don't believe in love.


I rebel against any holiday created to stimulate the economy instead of its intended purpose. The expression of love shouldn't be based on what your mate can buy you, instead how he/she makes you feel the other 364 days of the year.


Does a poor lover deserve any less recognition because he makes dinner or clean the house for his spouse on this day because he can't afford a gift? Or what about those who lost a mate suddenly or to a disease? Does this day cause them more grief?


The practice of showing love should be everyday and not just one day of the year. 


I'm just saying.

A Nightcap, A Onesie And A Laptop!

Writing all hours of the night is a normal for my life. It's not easy but I love it! So whenever I can mix being a kid again with my work I'm all in.

The Talented Mrs. Krispie


Hey, sugar and spice and everything nice! MGM salutes the future award-winning entrepreneur in you! Until now, you probably never considered yourself an expert in the kitchen, but why not? Let’s face it, you’re the ex-girlfriend that your ex-boyfriend can’t stop bragging about when it comes to cooking…to his wife at that! To your family, you’re the sister everyone bum rushes the moment you hit the yard at the family cookout, because you’re holding your beloved macaroni and cheese! To your babies, you’re the mother who won’t just open a can of Pork in Beans, slice up some hot dogs and call it a meal. That’s not your style. You’d much rather open the can, slice up a few hot dogs, add a little oregano, a few green peppers, and maybe some onions to save the day!

If you can’t stay out of a kitchen and you love impressing everyone with your meals, it’s high time that you turn that passion into a full fledge business. A good meal is not only the way to a man’s heart, it’s also the way to the bank!

Consider Sylvia Lester, founder and operator of Sylvia’s restaurant, the tourist attraction in Harlem, New York. She singlehandedly turned her meals into a million dollar operation! And let us not forget Ruth Wakefield, the creator of the chocolate chip cookie. She’s also the founder of Toll House Cookies, a multi million-dollar business which is still in operation today!

It’s time you stop wasting your good meals and make some major moves. And Mean Girls Magazine has gathered some information we know will be helpful to lead you on the way. So dust off that apron, grease up that big cast iron pan, and set your ideas into motion!

Tips To Get Your Feet Wet

Choose a name:
Make sure it speaks to the diva in you! Example. The Talented Mrs. Crispy’s. Okay, maybe the name is a little corny but you get the idea right? Think of a name that will roll off of your customer’s tongue.

Choose a business entity:
We listed the basics but check your state regulations for more information.
* LLC – Protects you and your personal property from liability issues.
* Sole Proprietorship – Registers you to do business in your state, but doesn’t protect your personal property from liability.


Create a menu – You already know your favorites! Create a cute little menu and wow your friends and family members. They already know how you get down and would love to support you.

Advertise – Solicit your friends and family first. Believe it or not, they’re the best way to get word of mouth. Once they know you’re in business, your company will continue to grow and your business will boom too.

Excited yet? We are too! But before you serve to the general public, do your research. Handling food is profitable but a serious business.  Know your laws and know the rules.

Conversation With Madjesty



Before I pen a book I often interview my main characters on paper. It allows me to get to know them, especially before creating sequels. ‘Raunchy‘ was one of my favorite books to write, because of the emotionally complicated characters. Outside of Kelsi from the ‘A Hustlers Son‘ series, no other character touches my heart more than Madjesty Phillips. This interview is before ‘MAD MAXXX: Children Of The Catacombs‘, of course.


Me: How are you?
Madjesty:  (no reply)

Me: So you don’t want to talk to me?
Madjesty: I don’t feel much like talking these days. (Pulls black baseball cap over her eyes)

Me: Why not?
Madjesty: I never know why. I stopped digging around in my head a long time ago. Hurts too much I guess. (Picks up Hennessy and downs half of the bottle)

Me: Wow, you sure drink a lot.
Madjesty: Toy, please don’t start with me. As much vodka as you drink.

Me: (no reply)
Madjesty: Now look who’s quiet.

Me: (clears throat) Your fans want to know about you. What do you want me to tell them?
Madjesty: Tell them that I love them. And tell them that I can feel their hopes and prayers for me. Tell them that I’m a survivor, and with a mother like Harmony Phillips, you got to be. (A tear falls down her face, and she brushes it away roughly, before grabbing the rest of the Hennessy and finishing it off)

Me: You miss her don’t you?
Madjesty: I hate that bitch! I’m gonna always hate that bitch, and fuck you for trying to make me feel any different! (Gets up and walks away)

Stay tuned for MAD MAXXX – Children Of The Catacombs. JULY 2013
