Jasper began his writing career with an article as an intern for The Washington Informer at 13. At 14, he became a contributor to Black Entertainment Television's YSB Magazine, and later worked as a writer and instructor at The Institute for the Preservation and Study of African American Writing. He also served as an on-air personality for WTTG Fox 5's Newsbag (1986–1987), and later as one of the founding cast members of Black Entertainment Television's Teen Summit (1989–1993). By the time he graduated from Morehouse College in 1997, his journalism had appeared in VIBE, Essence, The Village Voice, Upscale, The Charlotte Observer, The San Diego Union Tribune, and The Atlanta Tribune.

Author Kimberley R. Jasper,
WHAT HATRED BREEDS is the story of Kayla and Julian Moore, a newly married couple and their struggle to stand against the evil that pursues them in the form of Stella Moreau, Julian's nefarious mother. Kayla and Julian embark on an arduous journey that was set in motion on the very day Kayla touched the fiber of her adversary…
Stella Moreau had great faith in her craft. She had faith in her lineage. Her blood was Toussaint, her name was Moreau, but she was Metoyer by right; by privilege. She had a fiercely latent centuries-old power that coursed straight through her lineage and had been passed down to her. It flowed from Geneviève, to Cèlestine, to Anastasie, to Gisèle, to Grandmere Lisette, to Maman Angelique, to Stella. Metoyer's did not have to operate under the confines of voodoo; they were not bound by the laws of rituals. They called to something deeper, something much darker. Of course if anyone knew the true source of the darkness that lie behind the Metoyer's power, they would surely pray for their souls. The Metoyer's were more powerful than the boundaries of voodoo and far darker, a source of power hidden for centuries.
This book will take you to the underbelly of spiritual warfare and have you riveted as the story begins to unfold with each page. Surprisingly, Kayla and Julian's plight is not uncommon and the reader will instantly be able to identify with the torrid love story tangled within the stronghold of darkness.

LOTL THE COMFORT ZONE PRESENTS CHRIS JASPER DEBUTS NEW SINGLE ' THE ONE '
CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY, and topped the charts singing lead vocals on “Caravan of Love” (1985), a song that was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, an international #1 pop hit. “Caravan” was also used in commercials as part of a Dodge Caravan advertising campaign. He was also awarded a CEBA Award For Excellence for a Miller Brewing Company commercial. The music for that commercial formed the basis for “Brother to Brother” from the “Different Drummer” album, which supported the anti-apartheid struggle going on in South Africa at that time. His music has also been used in radio and television commercials, most recently “Who’s That Lady” (Swiffer) and “Between The Sheets” (L’Oreal).
LOTL The comfort zone Presents Chris Jasper. Debuts his new single THE ONE
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3 (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced, self-contained group.
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily responsible for writing and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.
