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 HBCU, Texas Southern University, and a Masters's Degree in Social Work from San Diego State University. I  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.

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...☺️"
