It's a wrap....

I had an amazing weekend working with Angie Stone, Ann Nesby and Vanessa Bell Armstrong in The Color Purple.  These women are class acts and such great people to work with.   Theater 47 showed up and showed out!   I'm happy to have choreographed such a memorable show.  The tour has ended and I'm looking forward to starting again.

Working with Ann Nesby

It was such a pleasure to work with Ann Nesby this weekend doing The Color Purple.  She is an amazing classy, talented person.  Can't wait to work with her again.  I'm still talking about her kind, positive spirit.  Love her!  "It's Sunday morning....."  she was singing this song.  Brought tears to my eyes... she is so gifted.

On the road again....

Hanging  out on the bus with the cast Nyfesha, Tasha, Erica and Angie Stone.  Headed to Cincinnati to perform in the Color Purple show.  Fun times

Joey Pinkney interviews Winkk

5 Minutes, 5 Questions With Winkk,

Author of Misleading

by Joey Pinkney
JoeyPinkney.com Exclusive Interview 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…Winkk, author of Misleading
(Ailam Publishing LLC)
Misleading by Winkk draws you into the glittery, but gritty realm of Jarvis Denttin, a self-absorbed club owner who gets on a first-name basis with betrayal while expanding his successful business in Chicago. Devastated by the shocking murder of his best friend, the womanizing Jarvis Denttin starts distrusting the people around him, and they prove that they are more conniving then he could imagine.  With money dominating his life, he is unaware of the scheme being orchestrated to bring him down. He finds himself fending off power moves from a circle of business associates, including a vengeful lover and a longtime, once-trusted protégé. Oblivious of his acquaintance motives, he gets put in a deadly situation.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Misleading?
Winkk: I was inspired to write Misleading because sometimes you never really know the intentions of the individuals around you. Misleading is a story about karma. What goes around always comes back around.

JP: What sets Misleading apart from other books in the same genre?
Winkk: Because I love to keep readers guessing what is going to happen next and shocking them throughout the storyline, I think my style of writing sets my novels apart from others. I have lived an interesting life and have witnessed some things that most people might feel is unbelievabl. In my world, it’s reality, and it makes an interesting novel.

JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Misleading getting out to the public?
Winkk: My keys to success are always promoting, marketing, learning and willing to eat, sleep and breathe this industry. Never giving up on my dreams and always having faith keeps me pushing forward.

JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Misleading?
Winkk: My writing process is to visually create the story and book cover in my mind. Once I can see the story and cover, I’m ready to start typing. It usually takes a couple of months to finish the book. Then the work begins with the editing process.

JP: What’s next for Winkk?
Winkk: I’m currently working on my fourth novel. Since I like to stay busy, I hope everyone keeps in contact with me at http://www.winkkatme.com.


I would like to thank Joey Pinkney for providing a platform for authors to display their work. I would also like to thank the readers who have supported me with my first novels Tour Secrets 1 & 2, and who continues to support me with my latest novel Misleading. I thank everyone for supporting me.

Chapter Two of My Life

The time I’ve spent as a dancer performing on stage was such an incredible time in my life. I was able to do something I enjoyed and loved. I met so many people and have traveled the world several times. Lights, camera, action is something that any dancer/performer can relate to, and love when that time comes to hit the stage. From Japan, Switzerland, Germany to London, I’ve traveled there. From dancing at the Olympic’s, Oprah, Soul Train Music awards to dancing for President Bill Clinton’s Inauguration Ball, I’ve experience that. I’m thankful and feel blessed to have been able to live my dreams.

I truly want others to experience what I’ve experience. To do what you love, is never work. My purpose is to help others succeed in their dreams. The good, the bad and the ugly, I still enjoyed my time traveling on the road as a dancer/choreographer. I’m a stronger person, a different person, a wiser person a more mature person and a happy person. My experience is priceless.

A dancer will always live inside me, choreographing is something I will always do. I’m moved by music and creativity. I’ll always work with others to help them experience their dreams and share my knowledge to help them succeed. Who knows, you just might see me on the stage again.  

I’ve started a new chapter in my life, and as a published author, with three books and now working on my fourth, I’m still creating. From books, to video book trailers, to plays and movies, God continues to bless me and my dreams. I’m always moving forward with a positive attitude, positive energy and positive people around me. Lights, camera, action – welcome to chapter two of my life.

Motivate, inspire and support.
