Keisha Tyree is a thirty-three year old author and mother. Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, she currently resides in the Maryland/Washington D.C. area. Having been a lover of words and reading from a very young age, Ms. Tyree’s progression into writing seemed to happen almost naturally. Starting out, she mostly penned short stories and poetry. After sharing her work with a few family members and friends, Keisha was overwhelmingly encouraged to turn her short stories into full length novels. She pondered on the ideal for a while, but it wasn’t until she began working as a personal assistant to New York Times bestselling authors, Ashley and JaQuavis, that Ms. Tyree truly decided to pursue her dreams of becoming an author. Gestating her work for months, Ms. Tyree banged away at the keyboard every day until the last word was written and her debut novel, Heavy, was finally born.

Her work seeks to shed light on the untold stories from our nation’s countless, and often times forgotten about ghettos. Signed to the Official Writer’s League (O.W.L), the publishing company created by author’s Ashley & JaQuavis Coleman, Keisha’s debut novel Heavy, is currently causing a stir in world of urban fiction.

The Released & Ready Show: Are You Afraid Of Success?
When we think of the things that we're afraid of, many times we immediately think of bad things--sickness, losing our jobs, bad relationships, failure in various forms, etc.--everyone is afraid of that, right? But if we're really honest with ourselves, when you think about the times when things have been going well in your life, how many times have you thought--things are going maybe too well? Then you start thinking about the "what if's" that run through your mind that have nothing to do with anything going wrong, and everything to do with everything going right.
Tune in to today's Released & Ready Show as Keisha A Rivers Shorty of The KARS Group LTD provides tips, strategies and insights to help us understand just what is it that makes us afraid of success and how we can overcome it--and use it to our advantage to win big and create our own success!
The Released & Ready Show: Don't Diminsh Your Shine!
So many times we encounter other people who feel "uncomfortable" because of who we are and as a result, we feel it necessary for us to "tone down" who we are a bit or to "diminish our shine" in order for them not to feel badly about themselves, or so we won't be the brunt of criticism, hateful comments or "drama".
