Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, TJ started writing as a means of expression and self-discovery. Growing up, she was a S.T.E.A.M. kid and took every opportunity to also develop in the performing arts as well in vocal & instrumental music performance, dance and eventually writing. Writing became a natural habit through journaling, but never turned into a serious endeavor until she was older.
Being an avid reader inspired TJ and gave her the motivation to finally write and publish a novellette and subsequently, a novella. While writing mainly in African-American targeted fiction and currently trying her hand at Afrofuturism, TJ loves to read many different genres not limited to urban fiction, African-American targeted fiction, Christian Fiction, Biographies/Autobiographies, Historical Fiction, Suspense, and Afrofuturism.
Her previous experience as a Technical Writer, encompassing writing/developing Operations Manuals, User Instructional Manuals, Technical Documentation, Use Cases, Test Cases, etc... had a huge affect on how TJ approaches the planning, organization, and formatting her fictional writing.
TJ is the author of two self-published releases ("All Is Well" and "Habitual", both currently available on Amazon in eBook and paperback formats) and is currently working on the first book in her new series, "Discoveries".
