Justice Hustler Series

The Justice Hustlers series carves out space for women of color in the crime genre at the intersection of wealth redistribution, sexual capital, labor rights, and women’s healthcare. They envision an unstoppable double rainbow coalition of racially diverse straight, queer, and trans women. These novels are action packed and sexually charged stories of hood problems, political struggle, international solidarity and brown romance. It’s a literary mash-up of my MFA in fiction, my craft as an award-winning poet and my skills as a hip hop artist, reaching for a new language of urban women’s insurrection.
