Josephine is the creative force behind the popular teen trilogy series starting with Starcrossed and the recently released Dreamless 'YA' (young adult) novels.
In the 'about me' section, Josephine reveals:
'I was supposed to be a boy. At least, my mother was convinced I was going to be a boy when she was pregnant with me. She claimed that I "carried" like a boy, but since I'm the youngest of eight, and I have six sisters and only one beloved brother, it is reasonable to assume that my mother was simply suffering from a massive case of wishful thinking. Whatever the reasons, my parents were so convinced I was going to be a boy they had even decided on a boy name for me—Joseph. But I'm a girl.' To read the rest of the story, click here. Join us!

Miss Radiance was born on May 31, 1982 in Wilson North Carolina. She was raised by her grandmother, Josephine Jacob Johnson. Because of her shyness, the things that she wanted to express but could not say seemed to come out easier on paper. When she was 11 years old her grandmother bought her a diary as a Christmas gift. Which Miss Radiance soon realized that not only was writing fun, it was also therapeutic, and there was power in putting a pen to paper. She immediately fell in love w/ the passion of being able to creatively express herself. Her writing started out simple with diary entries and poetry. When she got to high school and became involved in relationships, drama, sex, all the trials teenagers go through, she began recording these events in the form of short stories, pulling inspiration from friends, classmates, along with her own personal experiences which brought her stories to life.

Dionne's search for her family history began at age 12, when she asked a simple question: Grandpa, are you white? Her grandfather’s answer sent her on a lifelong journey to piece together a family story and reveal a not uncommon but often untold part of American history. His grandparents were a slave named Tempy Burton and her master, Col. W. R. Stuart. Three decades after she first learned of this interracial, Civil War-era duo, she found another one of their descendants. Dionne's family’s history includes masters and slaves, Confederates and Senators, preachers and entertainers.
Dionne Ford is a freelance writer and M.F.A. candidate at New York University. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, More, Ebony and other publications. Her essay for MORE on her family’s history won two magazine awards. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two daughters and blogs about her family's history at FindingJosephine.com.

Oakland, CA – Life coaching is about making changes and creating a sense of movement in the person’s life. When we are emotionally overwhelmed, we can’t see the possibilities. Coaching is the ideal modality to help a person transform their challenges into new opportunities for a life that is satisfying, joyful and purposeful.
Josephine Withers is a certified life and relationships coach offering spirit-based, heart-centered coaching to help individuals navigate major life transitions. With her compassionate, collaborative approach, Josephine creates a safe space where the client can draw on her own courage to inspire new ideas for their future.
“What I wish for my clients is a sense of satisfaction and contentment with whatever choices they make,” says Josephine. “Ultimately, they are the person who best knows what’s good for them.”
Josephine had taught art history at the University of Maryland-College Park for over 33 years before she pursued life coaching in 2004.
“My philosophy was if they never remembered the name of a single artist, I was engaging their minds to see the world from a new perspective,” recalls Josephine. “When I would advise my graduate students, it was always more than just what courses to take next semester. It was about life choices. Looking back, I coached my students.”
Josephine serves as an inspiring role model for women who are fearful of making big changes in their life.
“People who know me think of me as an adventurous and courageous person,” says Josephine. “I’ve walked the talk in my own life. Clients trust me even when I challenge them because I create a space where they can really flourish.”
