Orlena James is a thirty-five year old Grenadian author who currently lives in the Unites States. For her whole life, Orlena loved romantic comedies, but always lamented the lack of strong black female characters in these stories. Why did the women who looked like her always have to be the maid or the sidekick?
Orlena got her start writing short fan fiction about her favorite books, re-imagining characters to be black West Indian women like herself. Now, Orlena writes her own stories just as steamy as her earlier works of fan fiction, but a little more refined.
When Orlena isn't writing, you can find her taking Tango or other Latin American dance classes. Orlena and her husband have traveled throughout South America and the Caribbean enjoying the passion and warmth these countries have to offer.
Orlena also enjoys reading biographies about inspirational black women. Her favorites are those about Oprah, Maya Angelou and Beyonce.
