Dreams Shot Down

When I was a student in High School in the late 40's, I was told by school counselors that "Negroes don't write", so my dream of becoming a writer was shot down.

When I retired, the dream of writing returned. I enrolled in the UCLA School of Writing (extension) and in the past 10 years, I have written 3 novels and have just finished writing my 2nd book of poetry. 


I am a living, active witness that dreams need not die, they can be deferred. If the passion is there you can follow your heart. I call my work Historical Factional books because they are based on stories handed down in my family.

When my work was not accepted by a few publishing companies, I became an independent publisher and produced my own books.

Check them out: MAMA ROSE, I LEAVE YOU MY DREAMS, BEYOND COLOR and a book of poetry, LISTEN MY CHILDREN. Let me know what you think.

Joy & Blessings! Bernadene
