Phenomenal Woman

"Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me."

Author's Note:


Okay, this email me my night yesterday, and I just had to share!!

"I read your book and it was off the chain. If you never write again you wrote that. I really enjoyed it. It took me to fantasy island but it was good. I've read a LOT of romance books and that fell in the top 5.  I'm telling everyone about your book. I'm ready for the next one."

~Donnie Tisdell

Thanks so much for your kind email, Donnie!!  It warmed my heart, touching readers in a positive, memorable way is the major reason that I write.  Onward and Upward!


I'm back, and survived the RT Booklovers Convention!  It was great seeing New Orleans for the first time, and though I didn't get a chance to actually sight see much, it was still wonderful to be there.  The energy at RT was phenomenal.  I met great people, made connections, and pitched my stories.  Also while there, I find out that Her Heart's Desire reached #1 on Amazon for the Harlequin Kimani Romance line.  Thrilled!?  YES!!  THANK YOU to my readers for continuing to support my work!  Trust me, it was a fantastic way to wake up...especially since I had been up most of the night working on a deadline.  Was it worth the long hours of walking, lack of sleep, and hectic schedule to attend RT?  Absolutely!

Now it's back to sunny NC to get back to work, family and writing, writing, writing.

I'm getting my sea legs with the Reader's Entertainment Blog Talk Radio show.  I'm about six interviews in now, and I'm truly loving the opportunity to chat for 30-minutes each week with fantastic authors, hearing their literary journeys, and what's next for them.  To listen to a previous interview, check out my Recent Interview page to hear the podcasts.
