About her book: Kared and Shyann: A Harlem Love Affair
It's true what they say “the effects are different between a gangster and a gentleman.”
Shyann is your average Harlem girl. She loves to have fun with her friends and family; she works full time and has everything going for her. Then the world as she knows it change after the sudden death of her mother. The crazy part about mourning is, love finds her at the most vulnerable period in her life.
Lovell is one of the best basketball players in NY. At first Shyann doesn’t even want to give him a chance. He’s popular, he has a lot of women on him, but something draws her in. The patience and faithfulness progressed their love for one another; until Kared came along.
Kared was the total opposite. A "ruff" boy, and as her father would say "gang banger!" Years ago he moved down south after getting into some trouble. Now he’s back in New York. Shyann had a crush on him ever since high school seeing past the bad boy image. Instead of becoming distant they grew closer. The allure of different worlds enticed them to play in a dangerous game of “Who do you love?" Welcome to this Harlem Love Affair."
