Imagine a world where Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X never lived? One where The Honorable Michael Kublai Khan wants his people to live without prejudice and domination and Kimberly Solberg just wants happiness with a guy that loves her for her. Kim goes to Juarez to find her way and the minister goes to the nation's capital. Their lives intertwine in Los Angeles where they both confront racial hatred, murder and chaos. My novel, Mixed Blessings is a story about moving beyond race as a label and embracing the human spirit.
