Steph Gordon Cancelled

This author has cancelled their attendance with the Festival.

I'm excited about new adventures and new horizons in the literary world. Flights of the mind, chances to travel and be inspired by new people, places and experiences. I am especially interested in learning more and writing about my own heritage and history as a Black woman whose roots are southern, creole and of course African. I know little of my own bloodline and hope to share what I learn through the literary arts in blogs and in published works of book length as well as in poetry and prose. I have been blessed with a great sphere of influence of strong willed motivators and talented individuals who are my framily.Mi familia. Two of my current book titles, "The Art of Eve: me and my hip hop soul" and "my current situation of dope" have both been 'retired' for updating. These titles will be available at a later date and time. My other titles, "Jah's Boogie: the ballad box" and "Bounce: wordz & rhythmz" are both available through or via any online distributor. My blogsite The Upside of Fear is updated regularly, with blogs on facing fear, everyday home life ups and downs and the celebration of area small businesses and passionate entrepreneurs []. I'm a mom of teenage daughter, a licensed residential home sales agent in the great state of Texas... and a writer who loves the sound of music. I am continually amazed and awed at the the power of God within each of us to do and create great things to bring joy to our world. Thank you in advance for your interest in my titles, my blogs and the transparencies shared within my writings. They are usually on family, woman and motherhood and include some views on social movement from the courthouse to the White House and of course the current conditions and affects of climate change. I am currently learning about natural medicines, teas and lifestyle changes in wellness for better quality of living and loving. Looking forward to Tuscon and awesome weather in the Spring and all of 2018 and beyond!
