Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe, Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion, Soul Food, Resident Evil: Afterlife) and his wife, Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Dr. Who, Bonekickers), are a typical married couple who own and operate a small catering company in Los Angeles— with help from Samantha's easily frazzled, handful of a sister, Lizzy (Mekia Cox, 90210, This Is It). Secretly, the duo were two of the best spies the CIA had ever known, until they fell in love on the job five years ago and retired. When fellow spy and good friend Leo Nash (Carter MacIntyre, American Heiress, Nip/Tuck) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss and agency liaison, Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney, Deadwood, Jericho), to locate and rescue Nash. With assistance from resourceful CIA field agent Bill Hoyt (Ben Schwartz, Parks and Recreation, Bronx World Travelers), whose professional admiration for Steven isn't hard to miss, the pair is thrust back into the world of espionage, disguises and hand-to-hand combat. Following leads that take them to cities spanning the globe, Steven and Samantha quickly realize that perhaps this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides exactly the kind of excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.

Gugu Mlambo Msomi: Stylist Turned Designer, "I Design For The Free-Thinking Woman With A Refined Sense Of Style"Category: South Africa, Style
As you may already know, not much exists when it comes to information or research about the African woman's experience particularly in the Diaspora. Threads of our Fabric is an endeavor that is quite dear to my heart. I have spent exactly half of my life in Cameroon and the other half in the U.S. Throughout my stay in America, there has been a constant struggle to assimilate cultural and social values from both worlds as they shape my life experience and identity. Threads Of Our Fabric was born out of a desire to collect stories and live experiences from African women and give an honest presentation of the influence of society and culture on the sense of “self” and how it permeates different areas of their lives.My vision is for empowered, mentally healthy women with less inner “self” turmoil that are liberated to become all that they aspire to be and hold true to Sankofa–it is never late to go back and take hold of purpose and destiny in one’s life or support other African sisters nurture or reclaim theirs. Your input would be priceless in informing the presentation of this project and its use in developing programs for African women and girls.

One Love looks at the true life marriage between myself (an English, working class punk rocker) and Margaret (a middle class, Nigerian Methodist). We have been married for 10 years and the book shows how a succesful interracial marriage can be achieved. It shirks no issues, ranging from: racism, identity, colour-grading, sex, food and religion. You might be interested to know that our motivation for writing this book was to show interracial marriages in a positive light, as they are normally seen as impossible dreams, doomed to failure. We also wanted to write a book specifically about the black woman/white man experience, as most books on interracial relationships come from the other side of the hill. If nothing else we can guarantee the reader a 100 per cent honest book with humour never far away from our story. Enjoy!
