About the author
I am a survivor. I am not a victim.
I am not ashamed of my past because it does not define who I am, it instead shows off my strong character. I am a young black woman, dedicated to activism and awareness, and my goal is to break boundaries in the industry of literature. I wish to bring a new perspective of storytelling and believe a book doesn’t have to be the size of an Oxford dictionary to be read and taken seriously. As an author, I understand that we are all different as individuals and interested in and entertained by different things. Azania’s Secrets covers a wide range of topics simultaneously. I am a diverse and open minded author, always looking for a way to tell stories in an unorthodox and unique way. This is why I am fearless enough to write about sex in a way that others dare not. Allow your imagination to run wild with the arousal of the heated sex scenes.
