About The Urban Legend Creator & Author

logo_edited.png
logo_edited.png

As an African American author and educational board game designer, born and raised in Washington D.C.  I understand the educational struggles and hardships plaguing our communities.  I am working diligently to build a company that represents, educates and gives back to the African American family.  The Board Games, Books and Trivia Cards I designed are Fun, Interactive, Educational and great Family Fun.

Growing up on stories and fables that I could not identify with, and playing games that I could not relate to; I had a wonderful life going up in Washington, DC.  These are my childhood stories that I would tell my daughter before she went bed.  She found them so entertaining that it inspired me to write them into a series of books.

There were plenty of good times that were had be all and that are unique to our culture which are rarely told. We need to recognize and remember the African American Legends that have paved the way for young people today, and the future Legends of tomorrow.

Our company’s vision is to bring families back together with games and books that encourage family bonding, social activities and learning.  THE URBAN LEGEND SERIES intelligently ties the books, board games and trivia cards all together for one enjoyable experience..

The Urban Legend Series Mission 

We are committed to creating interactive books, and board games that are enriched with African American culture  and  that inspire young legends to become the legend that they are meant to be.
