Breanna J. Marshall, known to the writing industry as Author Breanna J, is a 25-year-old author, hailing from Rochester, NY.
She is hitting the scene with her debut novel, “In The Name of Love,” released January 2018.
She started writing at the age of 7, using poetry to express herself in her times of loneliness. The urge for writing novels came when she knew that her love of writing was good enough to share with the world. Her goal in the industry is to take the success she receives and help young girls with low self-esteem. She hopes that her writings show those that have low self-esteem and have the unfortunate circumstance of living in bad environments that things get better.
Shannon Spruill was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and she now resides in Buffalo, NY.
Shannon’s first book was released December 1, 2010. “My Reflection in the Mirror” is a look at some personal demons that she had to overcome. She hoped by telling her story she would inspire and empower other women.
October 4, 2013, Shannon lost her son Brian in an automobile accident. This was a devastating tragedy but instead of sinking into a dark place, Shannon grieved and picked herself up with the help of God and began helping other parents that have lost a child.
She is also the CEO and Founder of SMS Write On Publishing, LLC., and she is the treasurer and a board member of Our Curls, Inc, a non-profit agency for cancer support. She is also the convener of the Faith Missionary Baptist Church Women’s Fellowship Ministry. She is the recipient of the 2018 Women Touching World Award.
