I’m a journalist and fiction writer. In the spring of 2011 I consulted my list of ‘Things I Must Do Before I Die’ and decided I could wait a little longer on learning the complete choreography for Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation (number 5), and swimming with whales (number 8), but it was probably past time I started a book blog.

I love all kinds of novels, but I have to admit to a particular weakness for fast-paced, genre reads, aka the scorned bastard children of publishing.

Coffee Bookshelves aims to promote and celebrate black authors, not just the Booker-shortlisted writers that make national headlines, but the scribes who produce detective novels, romance books, thrillers and teen reads, the bread-and-butter books we actually read, (as opposed to displaying artfully on our coffee tables).

My opinions are my own, if you disagree please share your thoughts in the comments section.
