(Pillar Book Publishing)

The Occult Meaning of Masonry: Its Symbols and the Chakra System was written by a Prince Hall Affiliated Free & Accepted Mason.

Joey Pinkney: Love can easily turn into lust in the most unexpected situations. How is that typified in Feast from Famine?

Sh’Moore: I mean, humans eat with their eyes first, right? Some actually stay connected long enough to experience what hearts do.

Sandra Nicole: A Fatal Affair is purely sexual. It starts out with a man who is lonely and just wants to release some sexual tension. It turns into something more sensual on the part of the woman with whom he’s cheating. She starts to view it as the two of them making love rather than just having sex.
