A Secret No More.

I’ve been outed!!! By someone whose work I really dig, no less. I guess it was bound to happen. It’s my own fault. I talk too damn much.

You may recall the post I did last month on the very brilliant author, John Barlow


…and his fabulous new novel, Intoxicated.

Well, it seems Mr. Barlow reads The Lo Zone, and he happened to note my St. Patrick’s Day post on Friday. You know, the one where I had the graphic of myself as a leprechaun


…and revealed my not-so-purely African lineage. Not one to miss a major (or minor) revelation when it’s right in front of him, the clever Mr. Barlow wrote a blog post about it

[click image to go to his website; then click “open blog” and scroll down]

…expressing his shock at how a white girl such as myself could be passing as a black chick and writing for a well respected imprint known for its high profile African American literature.

Okay, so I admit it: I’m not pure. On any level. (And you’re crazy if you ever thought I was to begin with.)

Smooches, John!!! Thanks for the love!!!

(Sorry, Lance. I hope this Irish-blood thing doesn’t mean I can’t keep fighting the power. Ungawa, my brother. A-salaam, and all that.)
