The book that started it all!


A book that truly connects people regardless of race, gender or any other dividers, Black Parakeets proves that laughter is the great denominator!


Laugh at elementary school moments, jump at the echo of possibly ghostly footsteps in the church next door, and cry when the news of a sudden death pulls your heart from your chest. Black Parakeets Only Hatch in December is a collection of anecdotes and vignettes of life growing up in the urban city of East Chicago, Indiana. Nestled between the big city presence of Chicago and the gritty, misrepresented aura of Gary, East Chicago is a brew for a common life experienced uncommonly.
