Black Women Tell Tales
Gladys Unimuke Wilburn
Has been quilting, drawing and telling her Folk -Art Stories for twenty years. This year she appeared at the Crocker- Capital Storytelling event. Her “Harlem Hill Chronicles”, available on lulu.com, takes place during Jim Crow Segregation Era in Fort Worth, Texas. The stories are woven with dreams of youthful confidence, guarded in the hopes of family love and fortified in the eyes of cultural history. “The Elephant Champion”, this year’s short story, will be published by the Northern California Publishers and Authors, in Dec.
MS Wilburn is a retired councilor of abused children.She lives in South Sacramento.
Lisa M. Randolph an aspiring children’s book writer, goes by the pen name, L.M. Randolph. Her first action-adventure series The Wildlife Divas Adventure Team and short story Raju the Crying Elephant,tackles the subject of Wildlife Conservation and Endangered Species. Her real-life adventures have taken her to four of seven continents of the world. Her fascinating hobby of ‘Rock Hunting’ for semi-precious stones has sent her exploring mountains reaching heights up to 8000 feet, to valley floors of ancient seabed’s hunting for trilobite fossils. Don’t be surprised when meeting her to find pockets filled with an interesting array of rocks, crystals and gemstones.
She resides in Elk Grove, California with two small rescue dogs, Rose (a terrier-mix) and Petal (a teacup chihuahua) and admits to being their emotional support human. They’ve inspired her upcoming children’s book series, The Adventures of an Ugly Dog in a Tutu’.
