    Aqua Blue

    in Writing

    As an African-American pioneer in the genre of contemporary women's-clean fiction, Marian L. Thomas’ success is noteworthy. She refuses to lace her work with explicit sexual themes or profanity, and instead pens refreshing, engaging and dramatic stories that revolve around strong female characters. 
    Race, hatred, passion, betrayal and heartbreak—are all things that make a dynamic and spellbinding read: Travel back to 1968 when a child is born. A friendship begins to unravel. A young man is fleeing the tragic loss of his mother. A romance crosses the boundary of hatred and proves that love is stronger than the color of skin. Find it all in, AQUA BLUE her latest book.  Join the conversation, Hear Ya there!
     
    Until then .. Make it Great!

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show: 2nd Annual Sac., CA Black Book Fair

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    In addition to writing fiction, Tom is the board director of, and an advisor to, technology companies in the cyber security, media, data analytics, cloud computing, mobile, social intelligence, and information technology businesses. He now lives in Boston.
