About the author

Since I was just a young child I have always enjoyed making up stories. I was so convincing with them, sometimes I believed them myself. For as long as I can remember I always said, “one day, I’m going to be a writer.”

As I got older my belief that this dream would come true slowly began to fade and was replaced with a new dream of being a truck driver. I was determined I wasn’t letting my new dream not come true. When I turned twenty-one I went and got my commercial drivers license. I was blessed to be able to drive for three and a half years, but due to health issues I was forced to retire on disability. This was heartbreaking for me because I loved my job so much, but God had other plans for me. My health issues caused me to be in and out of the hospital several times, and have nearly died on two different occasions, but someone was looking out for me.

While being bedridden and in a long-term care facility, I have faced depression from being lonely. Desperate to find love I turned to the internet to try to meet someone special. Online dating has only caused more heartbreak and to deal with my feelings and emotion, I turned to poetry. I would post them as I wrote them to social media, and people seemed to really enjoy them. My cousin, Author Brandi Kennedy encouraged me to publish a book of poetry. The excitement and high I felt from seeing my published book on Amazon gave me the drive I needed to pursue my original dream of being a writer. My first series the Butler Trilogy was born. I am very proud of this work and am continuing to write. To everyone who has encouraged, and supported my dream, and to the fans that are loyal readers, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
