Mz. Mimi, of Chicago, has been writing poems and short stories since the age of 12. By the age of 16 then living in a group home she’d decided she wanted to write be a writer. She started her first book several times talking herself out of finishing it each time. One day shortly after turning twenty five she was on the phone with her best friend, Toya of 11 years, discussing several of her past life issues and struggles she’d overcome when Toya said “Mimi you should write a book about your life, that shit would be a bestseller.” That day she started writing Love Vs. Loyalty, which she finished in a year and a half. She still wasn’t sure she’d publish it until May of 2013 when a close friend happened to find it laying around her house and read the whole thing in one sitting. After some convincing Mimi decided to send out her manuscript to several publishers just to see what would happen. Within 3 weeks she’d received five offers and decided  on La’ Femme Fatale’ Publishing which she signed a contract with July 4, 2013. Mz. Mimi is currently working on her second book Love Vs. Loyalty 2: J.R.’s story as well as three other books all inspired by life events. She is also a fulltime student who is graduating May of 2014 from Ivy Tech State College with her Associates degree in Human Services and has a strong belief in God.
