It was in the second grade, after writing a story for a school assignment, her teacher told her she should become an author. When asked who are her favorites she stated Brenda Jackson and Omar Tyree.
All through high school she wrote short stories and poems. She stopped writing due to life and came back to it when her sister Maya urged her to write a story for the Short Story group on Facebook. The great feedback she received on the stories she wrote gave her more inspiration to take it serious with penning her debut novel. Mostly because the readers in the group told her she should try to get published. Which brought her to submit to Kindred Soul Publications. Fortunately, she heard back from Drusilla Mars one of the CEO’s and the rest is history. Her debut novel “The Little Games WE Play” is available on Amazon. Currently, she is hard at work on the sequel. All of her novels will eventually intertwine so be on the lookout for more stories from various characters.
