The Universe I Created

Everything comes together in the shadows of The Enigma World

enigma world:
Where it all began

It began with one saving the freedom, and life, of another. And Friendship was born.

Jimmy Engram was a long-time friend of Elijah “Smoke” Lewis. After Smoke ran into his Tailor Shop looking for a place to hide from the police, Smoke found himself not just indebted but found himself a friend in an otherwise cold world. Jimmy’s wisdom and loyalty proved valuable to Smoke over the years, and because of this, Jimmy’s death is the catalyst for Smoke raising hell in the City of Pittsburgh.

Recompense went both ways…

“In my opinion, she is proving herself to be among the best of the next generation of black women’s fiction writers.”– Edwina Putney

Writing these stories have unearthed a part of my creativity and artistry that I was unaware of. I love the Enigma World and plan to keep creating within it until I’ve given these characters everything I’ve got.
