Reea Rodney is a thirty-seven years old mother of two wonderful children, ages 19 and 15 who resides in Brooklyn, New York. Originally from Trinidad, which is a small Caribbean Island located in the West Indies, Reea migrated to the United States in 2006 in pursuit of a better life for her family, hoping that someday her kids would join her. Five and a half years later, Reea and her children were reunited at last.

In addition to being a mom, Reea is also a full time Childcare Provider, or "Nanny," and a Certified Medical Assistant with an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies. Reea has dedicated herself to adding joy, safety, trust, and most of all love to her extended families. Her hobbies include reading motivational and inspirational books as well as reading to children.

Because of her passion for her work and desire to help children, Reea was inspired to write children books. She wanted to assist not only the kids who were under her care, with the day to day issues they may be facing, but kids all over world. Her stories addresses topics such as adjusting to change, fear, separation anxiety, bravery, imagination, witty personality, love, compassion, and teamwork, and several other wonderful inspirations.

Reea’s motivation for writing her first book, “Juniper and Rose: Sisters First and Best Friends Forever” is directly related to the joy and satisfaction derived from two beautiful twin sisters while they were under her care from 2010-2014. Observing them, reading to them and taking care of their needs has given Reea an incredible insight into how these children relate to their family members, peers, each other and the outside world. The love that Reea gave to them and the love and happiness that was returned to her serves as a catalyst and inspiration for the words she put down on paper.
