Hey there!


Before I knew how to construct a story, as a child I enjoyed copying the words from my favorite books down in my tablet (the kind for writing, not typing). Words have always played a lucrative role in my life. As much time as I spent sitting on the floor in my local library reading a pile of books, I didn’t imagine that one day I would be writing my own. 


My publishing journey began in 2016 when my short story, LOSING LILY, was featured in THE EX CHRONICLES, an anthology published by Brown Girls Books. THE EX CHRONICLES went on to win Best Short Stories/Best Anthology at the African American Literary Awards Show. Later that year, another short story of mine, MAMA’S KEY, was selected for Brown Girls Books’ ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS anthology.


I began writing my novel, affectionately nicknamed PROJECT HEART, in the summer of 2017 after a devastating loss shook my world. Life’s circumstances came up but, two years later, I am nearly finished with my book. My hope is that my books might change the way we see ourselves, the way we see one another, and the way we see the world.


I hope you’ll come along with me on this journey. Our story together is just beginning.

With Love,

 Jeida K.
