Writing Beautiful Love Stories That Last

Writing Beautiful Love Stories That Last

I’m a romance author originally from Savannah, Georgia, now living in Atlanta with my husband and three children. With a B.A. in English from Armstrong Atlanta State University and an M.A. from Southern New Hampshire University, I transitioned from writing poetry to crafting love stories that mirror my Southern heritage as a Black woman, wife, and mother. My stories delve into themes of love and commitment, often against a backdrop of personal and societal challenges. My writing style showcases my love for storytelling but also highlights my ability to touch on delicate subjects with empathy and realism.

Aside from writing, I’m deeply committed to my family. I enjoy coaching my kids’ soccer teams, traveling, and watching movies at home on a Friday night. I credit my close-knit family and supportive readers for inspiring me to continue writing stories that resonate on a personal level. My narratives offer a sincere exploration of human emotions, underscoring the importance of love, resilience, and the beauty found in overcoming adversity.
