Thank you author and writer extraordinaire, Maxine Beneba Clarke (The Hate Race, Foreign Soil) for this candid portrait, for The Saturday Paper.

 Over coffee and cheese pies we covered all things festive, fearful and forward thinking. With a salute to good bling, for good measure. It’s not everyday you get to be interviewed by one of the country’s finest writers, who by the way officially stated,  #slayed is the new #slew.
