Agya is a 5 year old boy who likes robots, transformers, trucks, sushi, ninja turtles and showing people his "awesome" dance moves!
Conversations between me and the kid, is a collection of 2 ½ years worth of conversation between Phnewfula and Agya. Phnewfula, like most parents found the humor in her son's learning to express himself. They have had conversations about etiquette and how it's not proper to say to an adult "go away, I don't want to talk to you because you have stinky breath". They have had conversations about entitlement and why Agya does or does not "deserve" certain things. They have had conversations about nursing and why babies are "eating their mommy's boobies". Those conversations became too funny for Phnewfula to keep to herself so she put them in a book.
Conversations between me and the kid, is a book that parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, godparents, and all lovers of children will enjoy.

About the Author
In 2003 Phnewfula started an online business called The Red Lemon Store. She started this business while working for Geffen Records. The Red Lemon Store was a combination of Phnewfula's Far East fashion savvy that her growing up in Japan has shaped. She kept the store online until 2006 when she moved to LA and opened a brick & mortar location. While in LA Phnewfula and/or The Red lemon store, was featured in Black Enterprise Magazine's Best of the Best for her store. Phnewfula and the store were also featured in US weekly, Complex, King, Angeleno, and Vibe magazines respectively as well as a few foreign publications. In 2008 a series of events lead Phnewfula to close the boutique. One of those events would change her life forever.
In 2008 Phnewfula became a mother to beautiful little boy named Agya. She moved back home to Atlanta and took 2 years off to enjoy motherhood and bond with her child. That still remains the best decision of her life. That decision would be a launching pad for a few of her future businesses.
In 2010 Phnewfula went back to work and moved back to Chicago. She took a job as a regional promotions manager for Warner Bros. Records. There she worked with Jill Scott, Wale, and Kandi Burrus. With that job she was to merge work and personal by taking her son on the road with her. She is a very active parent and spends the maximum amount of time possible with her son. Around this time she starting noticing that the conversations the two of them had while they were on the road were beyond comical. Agya is truly a miniature Phnewfula in male form. Realizing that she started documenting them for a book. This collection of stories would soon become the book entitled Conversations between me and the kid.
