An author and playwright, Alretha Thomas is making her name through her pen. Award winning plays and wanting to help her community, Alretha’s background is as diverse as her personality. She started at the age of ten, when her 5th grade teacher picked and read her short story assignment in front of the class—that simple, loving act empowered a new writer. Continuing in high school, her numerous original oratorical conquests on the Speech Team led her to a journalism concentration at USC. 

In between plays, Alretha’s first novel, Daughter Denied, was launched in 2008 and has received glowing reviews from readers and book clubs across the country. Representing her book, Alretha has been the guest on many radio shows and television shows, including San Francisco Public Affairs show Bay Sunday with Barbara Rodgers on KTLA Channel 5. In 2011, Alretha launched her second novel, Dancing Her Dreams Away, and it was also well received. Her third novel, Married in the Nick of Nine, launched in 2012, inspired Alretha to write a standalone series, that in January 2014, was picked up by Soul Mate Publishing in a four-book deal. The first book in the series, “Married in the Nick of Nine” will be rereleased in the summer of 2014. The other books in the series, “The Baby in the Window,”  “One Harte, Two Loves,” and “Renee’s Return,” will follow. “Four Ladies Only” is Alretha’s third indie novel.
