Well-known African-American poet, Langston Hughes’ poem, Mother to Son ran through my mind when I picked up the book, Crystal Stairs. Once you delve into its pages and follow the journey of Jewel, its main character, along with “the Syndicate” (as she calls her group of friends), you’ll know that the title is fitting.

I loved this book because it reminded me of my Sister-Gurls. The difference was that one of these Sister-Gurls is a preacher’s kid and we have the spirituality twist to this.

Sometimes I feel like I’m on a roller coaster ride. The exhilaration from being the author of Crystal Stairs can’t be pinpointed. It just happens in the most humbling ways. People love this book because they can identify, somehow, with this universal story.
K.D. Smith, author of Crystal Stairs
Kim Smith was one of the vendors from our recent Empowerment Expo. Her book, Crystal Stairs, is one of the best books that I have ever read. A riveting page turner for sure.
