In my sleep actually. Its funny that after an argument with my then live in “child of God” I slept, I saw it, and I heard it. I woke up like. “WHAT????” after I fell back to sleep, I dreamed of shoes. The next day, God began to speak to me and show me many aspects of womens covered up shame that needs to be exposed including my own. So God is using me as a catalyst for change in how we see ourselves and each other. You have hit the ground running with this production, who are your inspirations? Legendary Maya Angelou. My spirit met her at age 13 when my uncle brought me her book “ I Know Why The Cage Bird Sings.” I never thought in a million years that I would tap into theater, so I don’t know anyone in theater (except my grandmother) who would inspire me to go in the theater arena. What do you have coming up next? My production company, Phoenix Rise Productions has a neo-jazz concert coming, another book, and some other great happenings in the works. What keeps you motivated?
