I have a printed copy of my manuscript Blue Lines that I carry around to manually edit. It went with me to Oahu, Hawaii and out to Anaheim, California. I have to get this publish-ready…and to the office everyday, although it stays in the bag there.

As you see, my staples are around…iPod, iPhone, Starbucks Coffee, a fresh Starbucks Pick of the Week card, and even a smoothie.

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
