Author and publisher, B.L. Wilson, has always been in love with books and the words in them. She never thought she could create something with the words she knew. When she read ‘To Kill A Mocking Bird,’ she realized everyday experiences could be written about in a powerful, memorable way. She felt she had a story to tell…maybe several of them. She’d always kept a diary of some sort, scraps of paper, pocketsize, notepads, blank backs of agency forms, or in the margins of books. It was her habit to make these little notes to herself. She thought someday she’d make them into a book.
BL Wilson writes about what she knows best…the Big Apple with all of its intriguing folks.
She says: “As a new writer, I am always looking for opportunities to tell a story. I noticed there weren’t many romance, adventure or mystery novels with African-American lesbians who were main characters. I decided I could fill that void and so I started writing novels with those ideas in mind.
I also wrote my novels because I wanted to read more fiction novels that had protagonists who were lesbians that happened to be African American, too. I figured other women might feel the same way I did about the lack of diversity in the publishing industry. When I finished my novels, I worried that I would have a small, limited audience.
My heart says no worries, now. I believe my novels are marketable for all readers who like a damned good story line told well!”
Please enjoy my novels.

Murder, it's all in the family

Lieutenant Abigaile Truman’s latest case involves a skeleton in the closet, literally; and it has been there sixty years.

Thing is, Ina has what appears to be a serious case of dementia, and her fiery granddaughter Jannita has her claws out in her defense. She and Truman clash in every way—or do they? As the case progresses, increasingly sabotaged by outside forces, it becomes obvious that there is more than one skeleton in the Kennedy-Peterson closet, and someone is resorting to murder to keep them there.
In this surprising, sassy romance, sparks of contention turn to passion as Ina’s story of struggle during the Depression in the South and betrayal and lust when she marries above her station slowly changes the lives of three very different women.
