Tea Leaf: What Hides Beneath

About the Author

I was born in Houston, Texas but grew up in multiple places including California, Colorado, and a few other areas around Texas. I graduated from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia and Western University in Pomona, California.

I started writing poetry and short stories when I was young (around nine) and continued through high school. In college, I drifted away from writing to focus on my studies in the sciences. Years later, after graduating from Spelman, I took a creative writing class that re-ignited my passion for telling stories. I began with random short stories, which led me to revisit poetry. At the time, I began to learn the guitar, so my love of music led me to learn how to write lyrics, which led to songwriting.

After I finished graduate school, I was able to write my first novel, Tea Leaf: What Hides Beneath. It is an urban fantasy story that was born from a strange dream. When I’m not writing or reading, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, trying to play guitar, playing basketball, and drawing. I live in Texas with my plants.
