“I’m so excited about my new release, Mama’s Boy, a ripped from the headlines story about a young man who films the arrest of his friends. That situation quickly escalates and when the dust settles, a police officer is dead and the young man is on the run. Oh, did I mention the officer is white and he’s black…oh, and they’re in Jasper, Texas, a town already rife with racial tension. As a mother, what do you do? That’s the question I dive into in Mama’s Boy.  And good news on the movie front! Let the Church Say Amen, the movie (directed by actress Regina King, produced by Queen Latifah’s Flava Unit, Royal Ties Productions and Bobcatt Films) is coming to BET August 30, 2015. And in case you haven’t heard, I’ve signed a deal to bring two more books to the screen: The Devil is a Lie and The Secret She Kept will be original movies on TV One in Fall 2016. ”
