Call in to speak with the host
Shiana is my pen name...my first book was published back in 2011 under my Lesa Jones/ nick name. As of last year I decided to go my own way and to separate myself from my Lesa name and begin publishing starting my own publishing company. Very long story, but writing is and has always been my passion been writing since childhood. I grew up using writing as a way to escape my real life. I grew up in a very abused home and the only way to escape was writing and reading. I wrote plays in high school, wrote for a few teen magazines in my city then I head into writing books. I am 32 years old and I work as a Administrative Medical Assistant/CEO Purple Rose Publishing, I am a mother of two wonderful daughters, Nesa which is my oldest daughter that was born with a liver disease. My family and friends thought I'll never see today with having my goals be met. Yeah that was negativ...e of them, but they thought I was go use her condition as a way not to move forward, wrong. She had her first Liver Transplant 3 years ago she's 10 years old and kicking and so am I we have our down time, but we still going forward. She makes me see life oh so differently because she's been through so much in 10 years teaching me how to live life no matter what. Nellie is my youngest and cheerful as ever....she heading towards being a gold winner in track or gymnastic....smile. My other passion besides writing is crochet which I'm a crochet designer as well....so if I am not writing I'm crocheting or hanging with my girls... So there you have it oh by the way I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but born in Jackson, Mississippi. I like thinking out the box and shocking my readers from street, urban fiction, urban mystery, erotic, erotic thriller/mystery...so many by me you will never get bored.
It's good to talk.
