Fiona Harewood always wanted to be an author, but never really thought it possible until she started working as a part-time housekeeper for Karen E. Quinones Miller, bestselling author of “Satin Doll”, and other novels. One day while washing dishes, she told Miller of her dream. “Put together what you have, and I’ll critique it and let you know,” Miller told her.
Harewood didn’t need to hear anything else. Miller was pleased with what she saw. Harewood joined Miller’s writers’ group, Evening Star, in April 2002. Prior to embarking on her dream career, Harewood was educated in Guyana, South America, where she grew up. Before migrating to the United States in February 2001, she lived in Barbados, West Indies for thirteen years and worked in the airline industry. Harewood has since finished a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies and a Master’s in Public Policy at Drexel University. While working on her bachelor’s degree, Harewood authored a piece of work titled, “Men You Have a Place in the Paralegal Field, Too.” This article was published in the Philadelphia Forum. After completing her bachelor’s program, Harewood decided to encourage people who have dropped out of school to return to academia so they, too, could achieve the personal satisfaction that a full education can bring. This triggered the writing of her book – “I Did It, You Can, Too!” Her hope is twofold: 1) that dropouts who read her book will consider returning to academia and build a better future for themselves, their family and their community as a whole; 2) that demotivated students would also find encouragement from “I Did It, You Can, Too!” believe in themselves and know that dropping out is not an option. Harewood also conducts motivational workshops and seminars in this regard. She lives in Philadelphia with her family and works as a Staff Assistant with the Federal Government. Harewood is currently finishing her third book.
