her Story

I discovered my love for literature at an early age. My love for humanity soon followed. Fusing my two loves, I write complex, heartfelt stories that embody the human experience.  


Before becoming a novelist,  I worked in the field of Human Services for many years, advocating for children, youth, and families.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from my alma mater, Texas Southern University, and a Masters's Degree in Social Work from San Diego State Univerity. I am also a Psychotherapist and reside in my native state of California with my family.  

To commemorate the 400 years since the first African captives arrived in the Americas, I founded the 1619 National Celebration of Black Women. My purpose-driven mission is recognizing the extraordinary contributions women of African descent have made in building America.

Amazon reviews


"When I read I want the characters to become a part of my life, better yet I want to become a part of theirs. And that’s just what happened in Hand For Hand, the sequel to The Hand She Played by Sheryl Mallory-Johnson. I found myself reading just one more page until the next page turned to the next chapter...☺️"
