This self empowerment coming of age story is told in a manner which is both entertaining and informative. The Time Will Reveal series uses the relationship between Ebony Brown [baby girl] and Anthony Jackson [Ajay], a teenage African American couple growing up in the tumultuous underworld of Cleveland Ohio with their crew, to give it a familiar feel and lock you in. Starting in the late 1980's, Time To Learn’s main focus is on the strength and survival of several families drawn together 2 generations ago through their migration from the south to escape the racism and bigotry of the white citizens council during the civil rights movement.
As Ebony’s dreams of a fairy tale romance start to consume her, she is sent to Houston Texas to live with her grandmother. While there she learns many phases of life. Her grandparents teach and show her lessons in a way, very different then her mother and father had been able to convey to her. Lessons which she will resonate for the rest of her life. Like self pride and respect, how a man should treat her and how she is to respect and treat her man. She learns some of the unfortunate sides of relationships, loyalty and growing up as well. And so does her girlfriends and her crew.
But what brings forth the end of her Houston stay is when she goes through a life changing ordeal which will bring her family and crew together in ways reminiscent of the olden days, when they had to remove certain stumbling blocks in order to progress. Their loyalty for each other is overwhelming to others. The unconditional love which comes from it, not only teaches her how precious life and true love are but also the dues which were paid by her ancestors to afford her generation it’s freedoms. She knows now that both good and bad things happen to good people. But with commitment and a sound foundation you can prevail.

This series about Ebony, Anthony and their crew starts off from the mischievous adolescent stages [Time To Learn-RELOADED-part 1

The name Black Coffee was given to me by my mother around the age of 6. She said I never sugar coated anything and I never like lies nor was I willing to live one. She said I was born to be strong and eye opening. I added steamy and hot. One of my favorite rappers, the now deceased Heavy D did a song with the same title. That sold me on the name and the description was fitting because that's who I was determined to be.

I was born and raised primarily in Gulfport Mississippi where I still own a home as well as in 3 other states, all south of the Mason Dixon line, so I'm a southern girl to my heart. I am a Federal/Civil service employee by day, mother, published author and the CEO of my own publishing company True's Relate Publishing. I pen novels, poetry, songs and spoken word. I have also done live performances of song and spoken word but public demand caused me to devote more time to writing my novels.

My reading audience ranges in age from 13 to 75. I gained a network of readers through popular blogs I'd joined since 2003. I picked up thousands of readers and followers as a member of Facebook [Black Coffee] and Twitter [AuthorBlkCoffee] but before the social network bliss I'd already had quite a following on various HipHop websites.
Friends became eager for me to release a full title after reading sample chapters on those websites. I established my own website; www.blackdollone.com in 2004.
