I wrote a book — Whatever May Come, due to be published in 2019… maybe. Some other projects include Los Jefes, an authentic Mexican restaurant and bar in Bali .


Sometimes I answer questions. I tweet things over @maesson and read emails sent to [email protected]. Let me hear from you.

Whatever May Come – A Novel

It’s about three brothers and the woman they all loved. The story starts with their summers on Martha’s Vineyard, an exclusive resort island frequented by upper middle class African Americans. A tragedy alters the trajectory of their lives, and over the years, they all try to make sense of the new world they are forced to live in. It’s a story about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale that revolves around not just parents and children but brothers, friends, and lovers, we explore the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.
