A brief chat with Syria. Meet the Madame of Erotes.

Sc Fb cover

*Syria enters a room and all heads turn to watch her, man- woman – it doesn’t matter a persons gender She is THAT woman. her commanding presence won’t let you look away. Clothed in a black body suit and zebra print long jacket. The hem of her coat brushes her calves in a hypnotizing sway of movement from the sashay of her hips. Large gold hoops brush her collarbone and her hair in pulled back in a tight ponytail. The strands sliding across her shoulder as she twists her head. Her face a mask of indifference her crimson coated lips a compliment to her umber hued skin tone. She stops at my table and with a brief nod takes a seat. We are just two of a few women – of color – in the country club.

I go straight to the point. The interview. But before we get started. “Would you like a drink?”

Syria gazed at me through unfathomable dark eyes. Hell, if I was a lesbian I would pay her to sleep in her bed. She exhaled before she spoke. “A mimosa – – Please.”

A wave of her hand and a waiter appears. We order. It’s time to get down to business. “Syria. I realize your busy but I had to know. Are you and Nate official yet?

A brief, husky chuckle erupted through her lips. “Something like that. We are a work in progress.” A slow smile brightened her face. She went from beautiful to stunning. “He is absolutely amazing in bed though.” She shrugged. “I’m a fool.”

“Why?” The question crossed my lips before I thought about it.

“Nate is – well – he can be a handful. We butt heads quite often but it makes for -umm- interesting relations.”

The drinks arrive. The waiter hovers. Syria peers over at him with an arched brow. “We aren’t quite ready to order.”

The younger server smiles and places a slip of paper beside her glass. Syria flipped it over and glanced down before discreetly placing it in her purse. She nodded and he turned away navigating his way through the tables.

My curiosity got the best of me. “What was that about?”

Syria returned her gaze to me. I can see why Nate is like a pitbull with a bone when it comes to his Syria. “The waiter offered me his number. I will call him but all I can give him is a job. A nice body with a pretty face, Erotes members will eat him up.”

“Since you bring up the club, I have to ask. Can I get a membership?”

“You are welcome to visit. I’ll put you on our list as my guest for an honorary twenty-four hour pass. Actual membership is rather pricey.” Syria presses her lips together.

“Can I attend Sexival?”

Syria cocked her head. “If you know anything about Sexival then its time to layoff a few employees.”

“Okay let’s change the subject.” Time to move on. I check my notes… Get the complete interview here.

Time matters – make the most of it.

I love a good book. That’s something most voracious readers have in common. As life gets busier…work, home, family, it gets hard to take the time to let my mind get away. I used to read the short stories in magazine – you know – back in the day. With digital devices I find myself passing the magazine rack. So what do I read for those short periods of free time when I may be waiting for my kid after a practice or that hour lunch time when I really need to let my mind drift.

Short stories.

A couple hours, a complete story. My urge is satiated and I got a quick vacation – LOL – at least in my head. Every now and then I tend to write one. A short story that is, and like reading it, it is my quick get away.

What happens when you take an unexpected road trip? Take a weekend trip with Moya and find out. 🙂  And meet her friends Wren and Sunny. After all, what’s a trip without friends.

Now – let’s talk new releases.

I don’t know about y’all but 2018 was a hard year for me – like super hard. You know the kind of year that makes you want to curl up and hide with hopes that things will get better if you just wait it out – hard. Let me tell you. I tried that. It didn’t work.  Actually, it backfired and I am behind on so many books I planned on releasing this year. *Long exhale* I did finish a couple of book and Lord knows I am trying to get back to where I was but as my grandma would say. Nothing worth having is ever easy.

That said I finished the next book in the 7 Day series. My Seoul. I truly hope you love it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

No good deed goes unpunished…
Waheeda Lexington, made a wrong turn and found herself lost in the city of Seoul, Korea. Compelled to help a woman being attacked she now has become the target for a serial killer. With nowhere to go she must depend on a detective to protect her.
A promise kept.
So Tae Ho, Sargent of Team Two’s Violent Crime Unit, is tasked with keeping a witness safe. The only person to ever see the face of the serial killer plaguing the city. His plan is to hide her in plain sight as his wife.
What could go wrong? Nothing, until you mix family with a killer and sprinkle in work complications…
They have seven days.

Home isn’t always where the heart is…

Welcome to Sugar Land.

Meet Bey and Jake.

Two people from two different worlds find themselves in an attraction that can’t happen. They shouldn’t have anything in common. Still, their weaknesses become each other’s strengths to overcome painful life lessons.

Young love can be complicated. Sometimes even real love can’t withstand harsh realities.


Soo I got to thinking – scary I know. Grab a glass and drink with me.  Sugar Land, this is my story to tell. I’ll just start somewhere.

My grandmother was crazy AF. I mean batshit was a tame way to describe her. – Sorry – Anyway my family (I use the word loosely) has some GTFOH secrets. You know the ones the elders in your family whisper about and snap their moths shut when someone under 55 walks into the room. Those black marks that most black families hate to admit might exist. YEAH those. So looking back after ruminating for sometime things got really clear in a moment of true epiphany.

Its because Clara B. Blue was 7 sociopaths, psychopaths, take your pick rolled into one. Most that bullshit never happened to me and although I don’t think appreciated her – fear would be more applicable – I gotta thank her, hell if I had some Wild Turkey I would pour her a couple shots and have a long talk with her because things are so much more clearer as I get older.

Growing up the bullshit, when your a child its your world. Seeing these people, I’m kinda glad I was never fully integrated into that fold and I believe I have Clara to thank for that. I was really hurt then, but damn I thank God for you now.

I tapped into a lot of those feelings when I was writing Sugar Land – the secrets well I’ll take them to my grave but all in all I am not as fucked up as I probably would be and that is saying something. Sugar Land is with the editor because I don’t want the bullshit troll reviews that seem to follow me around on occasion. In my heart I know Sugar Land is clean. The first time she (Barb Wilson) read it – this is what she sent me.

-You wrote a vivid, compelling narrative with some deep POV that ripped my heart out and danced on it.-

I thank her for ensuring – of course there will be someone, there always is – the best damn dramady, romance I like to think I have written, will be clean as humanly possible. Why? Not just because I wrote it but because I truly wrote it from the heart and soul.

I promised my mother I wouldn’t publish it until after she died. I may never tell the secrets but readers are about to get a whole lot of characters based on folks that are related to me if not by blood then by marriage. I now have a whole bunch of fucked up people too talk about. Whew. I needed to say this even its only on social media in the late night as I kill this bottle of wine.

Sugar Land is something of a reckoning for me. Let the fun begin…the anger, confusion, pain, resentment and finally freedom is represents in a multitude of was with a plethora of characters. I’m not sure any reader will be able to walk away with out relating to at least one of them. Good or bad, love or hate. I don’t don’t doubt Sugar Land will affect you. And as a writer that brings me joy.

Enjoy, KassannaSUGAR LAND2

Is time fluid? Can lost love be found again and again?

I was watching an old Erika Badu – Next Lifetime – and I was struck by the premise of what if. Suppose there was no good ending to every reincarnation? Would you meet your soulmate again to correct a wrong? In that instant Timeless was born.

I found out a little something, something too, historical research is hard. I got much respect for those authors that choose to write historical romance. It took a minute to get everything right but when I finally did. Whoo boy. Augustus and Zakiya are amazing characters and I am so thankful they choose me to tell their story.

I mentioned the idea to a few other authors, Marteeka Karland and Shara Azod. The three of us put our heads together and Time After Time the series was created.

Three different authors with three totally different books all birthed from the same idea. Originally set during the Roman Invasion of Africa they reconnect in the US in the present. The history between Augutus and Zakiya is deep. Here is a little more about mine.

He will never lose her again…
August Arnati dreams in vivid color of a woman he has never met. Death and destruction dog their steps in his dreams. A fate, he doesn’t know how to change. His soulmate, her image drives him. Always. When he finds her. He will never let her go.
Kiya Zaghloul can’t shake the imagery that fills her mind. Emotions she has never felt in reality, flood her fantasy world. Her worlds collide when she meets the man that plagues her dreams.
His approach – A cheesy pickup line.
Her decision will set in motion a fate they should have shared the first time.

And don’t forget to check out the other two books by some truly gifted authors. Thanks for visiting with me.


Going to bed will never be the same.

Remember lying in bed? You were young, a child, warm, snuggled up under thick covers. A small lamp on the night stand bathes your bed in a soft, reassuring glow.  Beside is your mother, or father, perhaps its your grandmother’s turn to read you a story. She pulls out a thick volume. The cover is brightly covered with animals, princes and princesses on the cover…

Who am I kidding? These ain’t no sweet ass fairy tales. They are twisted AF…hence the series name –

F’d Up Fairy Tales.

Although those saccharine, achingly, sweet stories  were the bases for these books I can promise you – grandma wouldn’t be reading them to you. You might want to settle in, grown folks style. Get under those covers with a toy or two and hunker down cause I’m not sure if your ready for this ride.

Check them out – https://ursulasinclair.wordpress.com/fupfairytales/

Yeah baby (in my best Austin Powers voice) I’m not sure if y’all are ready but these books are loaded and waiting.

Red is my take on Red Riding Hood – Yeah, no, its nothing like that story. Somehow I veered into some serious family drama and hot sex – well you gotta read it. In my world though, its not a bad thing to be a Wolf. Ha, ha!

Baddest Man Around

Hello Nurse…and Doctors…

My ode to Pinky and the Brain. LOL or was it the Animaniacs? I know I am showing my age.  But who didn’t like the siblings from hell or a mouse that wanted to take over the world? If I think about it I can still hear the theme songs. And this has nothing to do with my subject it was just a random thought.

Speaking of which – yeah my thoughts are all over the place but Infinity has a commercial I find panty dropping sexy. The guy is in a suit and he turns up the radio blasting –I’m the baddest man around – Yes, Lawd but he is smexy. Bobbing his head and mouthing the words. He pulls up and gazes out the window smiling. And who comes around the corner but some teenage girls waving and exclaiming – Hi Dad – That sexy man was all about family from the beginning.

Anywho, this leads me to my latest release. A short story titled One More Run. The hero is so low key I didn’t realize he was a hero. Zeke quietly handles his business. He’s the type you never see coming. Through the course of the book I slowly realized this a bad mutha- shut my mouth. My heroine is kick-ass but I have explained how I write them before however I have never written an understated hero. I will definitely be writing one again.

Check out the blurb –

Cherish “Roc” Greene did her time. She walked out of jail with the intent of joining her family and starting a new life. Her reality was completely different from dream. her daughter was in the hands of human traffickers and her grandfather had tried to save her child. They were both in trouble and it was up to Roc to come to the rescue.
And the only person that could help her was the man that betrayed her.
Zeke Hansen did what he had to do even if that meant making tough choices to ensure his family’s survival. Including letting his lover go to jail. Now, Roc was in trouble and he needed to set things right. If she would let him. Despite all that they had been through he still loved her and it was time to make her realize that. Even if it cost him his freedom…even if it cost him his life.

I want – no – need to say this…

Hey Friends,

I reserve this site to talk about books mine mostly and authors friends sometimes. Reading and writing takes me away from a sometimes painful reality. Politics is not something I discuss. Everyone has their own views and no matter how I feel I can respect that. But, the climate lately  is concerning to me. I deal with most ish by writing it out and this is no different, so here goes.

I’m going to throw this out there and stop reading me, disown me (for those family members that voted for 45) block me from social media But these are my feelings and since this is my forum.

We are going to lose healthcare coverage. That is a forgone conclusion. 45 was put into office because some were to damn lazy to get up and vote while others were pissed because their candidate didn’t get into the final run-off.

Democrats like to use minorities to further their agendas like any politician. No party is perfect because we don’t hold them accountable. But in my hearts of hearts I believe the Democratic party is probably the best option we have at the moment.

That said. Republicans basically own our asses because they do control a majority of the government -right now – so they can do what they like for their agenda leaving those of us in the lower and middle class to suffer because
1. We aren’t white
2. We aren’t rich and
3. Most of us aren’t old men.

Instead of standing together and hashing out our parties difference later. As my grandma used to say we put our business in the streets and divided our party. Republicans aren’t stupid they took advantage of our division and guess what. They united to put an orangutan in office. The zoo keepers aren’t in charge any more. Its more like the monkeys got all the keys to the cages.

But I digress.

To my original point – With the repeal of ACA no one is safe even those who have healthcare through employers. Honestly, most will probably lose the health care they have. It will be a painful, nauseating process giving some of us a death note because without insurance we can’t get the medicine, surgeries, help, needed to live. But this is what some American’s wanted. Maya Angelou said when someone shows you who they are believe them. 45 told you what he would do, that, I believe was the one honest thing he said during his candidacy. So don’t cry now about how any of this wasn’t expected. To quote my mama. “Bi&ch Please.”

This will be a humbling couple of years and maybe, Slapping my palms together and praying HARD, we can get our act together to take back Congress and the Representatives. Until then…well all we can do is wait and fight each battle as it comes. And for those of you that voted for 45 – I’m going to quote grandma again. “Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.”

I have no pity for those that support hatred, and inequality. That train left the station on January, 20, 2017. I realize that in some of your eyes 45 can do no wrong which is why I’m going to sit back and sip my liquor laced tea because getting through the next four years will take herculean effort on the part of many of us. But let me remind you. He who laughs last…laughs first. And when karma comes to bite several folks in the ass I want to be rocking in my chair with my eyes wide open.

I will go back to our stand programming and post books cause yeah, they are my Valium. Later Gator.
