I’m Denene Millner.
Mom. New York Times bestselling author. Editor of MyBrownBaby.com. Pop culture ninja. Unapologetic lover of shoes, bacon and babies. Nice with the verbs. Giddy.
I'm a Yankee from New York with Southern Belle in my soul. I’m Hip Hop and home cooking 11-cheese mac and cheese (from scratch) and the best chocolate martini you ever had. I adore my man and my babies and my funky/fly/fresh family. I’m addicted to black romance movies and Law & Order. And I super heart Romare Bearden and Junot Diaz, gummy bears and black children’s books and especially my Goldendoodle, Teddy. He’s flyer than your dog on its best day. It is what it is.
I’m 100 percent intelligent black child equal parts clever and smart and down-to-earth and wit, with a smidge of snob (used only in case of emergency). The rest of the time I’m all sour apple Blow Pops and Super Nova stars.
You should know, too, that I’m a lover of my people. Black mothers in particular. We’re colorful. Hella funny. Overcomers. Creators. Herculean. Soldiers. Every last one of us when we put our minds to it. And I’m proud to be counted among us. I’ve staked my name my career on it. It’s in my DNA. All up in my bones.
I’m sure of my talent know my worth. What I do with words is pure energy a gift from God. I understand the game. I love it strong. Who am I to waste this?
