Shamontiel L. Vaughn, the creator of this novel, has over thirty published articles, four short stories, and four poems in various locations including www.associatedcontent.com/shamontiel, www.timbooktu.com/shamontl/shamontl.htm, and magazines such as Citizens in America Magazine (NY), Fate Magazine (MN) and Underlined Magazine (IL).

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing from Lincoln University (MO) and is currently pursuing her Master of Arts in Writing degree at DePaul University (IL). She is a professional Assistant Copyeditor, a freelance editorial writer, and a novelist. Her primary writing focus concentrates on stories that the Generation X and Y groups can relate to. Shamontiel's interests include diversifying the literary canon, urging young people to be careful of their sexual partners, and fighting against racism.

Interests: I am interested in writing fiction for young African-American pre-teens, teenagers, high schoolers, and college students to relate to. I want them to be able to relate to books that aren't stereotypical.
