When I left my home state of Texas for Georgia, I brought with me a spirit of bulldog tenacity on a mission. Despite my rise and fall of a promising father, NFL star of America’s team, I used my detachment to come to terms with recollections I desired to escape.
A native of Dallas, TX, by the time I was 6 years old my parents divorced. I spent much time with relative after relative; when I was not with my beloved grandmother, developing, becoming known as a child with an “old spirit” and “strong willed” as my father, at an early age. Losing my parents of negligence had a long lived effect on me-convincing me to conquer the dream to be loved.
At thirteen, I was writing stimulating poetry, influenced by my mother’s writings and books by Maya Angelo and Terry McMillan. However, this did not win me over with my mother’s protective thoughts of me as her daughter. I dreamt of being an author of no account of relinquishing the passion deep within to write.
At the age of twenty two, I married and moved to Georgia. I am raising my four children and living my dream as an author and teaching writing courses. My first novella originated from my past radio talk show, based on many callers that called in about having marital problems which mostly stemmed from lack of intimacy. Drawing from my own experiences and struggles, I felt compelled to write Lover’s of Convenience.
I am a graduate of Clayton State University with a Master's in English. Additionally, I have a Masters degree in Education from Troy University, a Bachelors degree in Journalism from the University of Central Oklahoma, and an Associate’s degree in Journalism from Rose State College. My hobbies include reading, writing, teaching, event planning, and drawing. http://www.jblissbooks.com
