Just to share a little bit about myself, I was born in Washington, DC. I am the proud graduate of Central High School, and I earned an Associate of Arts in Legal Studies from Prince Georges Community College. I am currently working on finishing my Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies from the University Of Maryland University College.
I currently work full-time for the Federal Government as a Program Specialist. While I enjoy writing part-time I am looking forward to the day when I can make writing my full-time job. I am also the proud mother of a wonderful 25 year old daughter.
I began my love of writing at Lyndon Hill Elementary. I enjoyed getting writing assignments where I had to write about what I did over the summer or winter break. Often time, I would write stories just for my own enjoyment. The first story I wrote as an adult was entitled: The Beaver Family Picnic. The story was about a beaver family that spends the day by the lake having a family picnic and enjoying each other’s company.
My professional writing career began in 2008 when I signed on with Publish America. My first book entitled: 2310 Weary Lane came to be while I was in a meeting at work. I always laugh because the meeting I was in and my story have nothing to do with one another. My second book entitled: The Warehouse: Third Shift was also published by Publish America in 2009. You will find a list of my current projects in my bookshelf.
My love of writing comes from my love reading. Those that know me well know that I am always reading. As soon as I am finished reading one book I start another. I believe in order for you to become a great writer, you need to read and write often. When it comes to writing, I believe the sky is the limit. Everywhere you look there is a story waiting to be written.

When Love Ends

Jasmine Thomas, Rochelle Van Dorn, and Ahmad Covington are three of the best friends you could ever find; one might say they were thick as thieves. When one is going through something you better believe the other is right there to pick up the pieces, encourage, or just lend an ear. Let’s watch and see how Rochelle goes through it with her man Mack Johnson; with the help of her friends.
