Here are the people/works who inspire me, who I hold near and dear to my heart & who challenge me on a daily basis:
(@ signs are directed to wattpad, unless otherwise noted)
A great friend of mine who weaves such an amazing tale when it comes to her MJ stories!
Go visit her site and make sure to join to be able to read her books!
They're well worth it!
Man in the Music
by Joseph Vogel
A nice inside look into the songs/albums/era of Michael Jackson.
Michael & Me
by Shana Mangatal
Controversial to many, beloved by me.
I've shipped Michael & Shana before I knew what she devuldged in the book.
This site honestly wouldn't have been made had it not been for my admiration for this late great author.
He's authored my favorite books:
An Accidental Affair
The Education of Nia Simone Bijou
If you sleep on him, you're sleeping on me...
Waiting to Exhale
by Terry McMillan
This summer (2022), I finally read this book after seeing the movie all too many times.
This book had me LOCKED IN!
I recommend it to everybody!
The sequel "Getting to Happy" was released in 2010 and while it's not as great as it's prequel... I recommend reading it too.
Easily one of my new favorite books.
Don't ask if I prefer the book or the movie more though 🥴
Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in his Final Days
by Bill Whitfield & Javon Beard.
One of my absolute favorite MJ books.
If you want to learn more about MJ, go read this book!
Michael Jackson: The Magic, The Madness, The Whole Story 1958-2009
by J. Randy Taraborrelli
An inside look into Michael Jackson and the Jackson's lives.
You be the judge on what's real and what's tabloid junk.
I enjoy this book nonetheless (although, most fans don't).
by Will Smith
I just finished this book 12/29/2021 and it was a journey!
I found myself inspired by Will Smith's story and his thoughts on many topics now.
I feel like this page would simply not be complete if I didn't add this wonderful work.
Please go give it a read or a listen (in my opinion, the audio book read by Smith is wayyyyy better)!
Dancing the Dream
by Michael Jackson
A book of poems, lyrics, short stories, by Michael Jackson that I hold near and dear to my heart.
The Michael Jackson Tapes
by Rabbi Shmuely Boteach
Depending on the reader, Shmuely's commentary on his tapes with Michael can be interesting.
Nonetheless, peering into Michael Jacksons' mind means everything to me, which is why I've read this book as many times as I have.
One of the best Michael Jackson blogs ever!
La Cienega made a new website called rhythmofthetide.com, but the site has been defunt for years now. Thankfully, her old website is still up.
Avaliable on Wattpad, the author of two fantastic novels, I've grown to enjoy @OnlyLovingMJ's work over the years.
Her "Loving You [Erotic Collection]" has become a fave of mine and I look foward to indulging into the world of "I See Your Soul."
