Letter from the editor
Happy new year! I hope 2023 finds you happy, healthy, and rested. I spent my holidays sleeping, spending time with friends, and catching up on great shows.I look forward to this new year. At the top of my list is completing some writing projects so they’re ready for submission to my agent and eventually publication. I also look forward to the release of two books this year, Malaika, Carnival Queen and The Antiracist Kitchen: 21 Stories (and recipes).
