“I may be a supersoldier but I sure as hell ain’t no Superwoman. Yes, it’s true my hand is steady, I have the eye of a marksman, and I can hit a moving target dead center at four hundred meters, but when it comes to making clever love decisions, I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer. While I look pretty lofty in my spit-shined combat boots and razor-sharp battle dress uniform, like a lot of young sisters from the ’hood, I’ve taken a few wrong turns down the back alleys of life.”

Meet Sergeant Sanderella Coffee, who has just completed a three-year overseas tour and is now reporting to a military installation in Virginia. She is a single mother whose goal is to attend the Army’s prestigious Officer Candidate School, which will guarantee a better life for her and her children.

Sandie meets a man who matches her ambition and determination step for step in the form of Drill Sergeant Romulus Caesar, who literally marches into her life and turns it upside down. They fall in love, and Rom is everything Sandie could want—supportive, confident, self-reliant—but he’s also married. Because of the military’s tough policy on fraternization and adultery, Sandie could find her carefully orchestrated career slipping away like sand in a breeze.

From the Publisher:

A hard charging, take-no-stuff, hilariously sassy sistah from the 'hood, Sanderella Coffee is nobody's Private Benjamin. An around-the-way girl who has taken a few wrong turns down the back alleys of life, Sandie finds herself employed as the ultimate bullet stopper: an enlisted soldier in the United States Army. With spirited determination and a married lover who professes his everlasting support, Sandie marches through the mire to take on Uncle Sam, but will the love of her life prove to be an asset? Or will her love for him become the stumbling block upon which she must abandon her hopes and dreams?

From the Author:

While minorities are serving in today's Armed Forces in record numbers seldom are their unique challenges and triumphs portrayed in commercial African-American fiction. From blatant racism, to steamy adultery, illicit fraternization, gut wrenching betrayal and the horrors of living with AIDS, BLACK COFFEE runs the gauntlet of the African-American military experience and gives voice to the sisters and brothers in uniform who serve for a nation that has more often than not, failed to serve them. A Brooklyn, New York native and retired Army Engineer, I write from the trenches while living on a military installation with my husband and children.
