I am a Louisville-based author. LaPeche Books is a sole-proprietor, black, woman, service-disabled veteran owned business. My favorite part of being an author is working with students, and talking about their ideas and dreams for the future.
My most important role is mother - God blessed me with three children, teenage and older. They are a constant source of inspiration.
In addition to the USAF, I've worked in public health, project management, consulting, taught college classes, and owned a restaurant. Experience and failure are my best teachers.
When I'm not working, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, eating good food, listening to funky music, and traveling to interesting places.
LaPeche Books publishes books that model loving families, friendships, community, and kindness. My stories represent positive social norms and place emphasis on characters of African descent. We didn't have representative books when I was a child or young adult, and I want to change that for kids and adults today.
