Author Chanique J’s story began in Central Ohio where she was raised by her mother and father. Chanique had to live a reality that a majority of young African American Children face, the reality of growing up in two separate households with two separate parents.
Despite the hardship of growing up without one of her parents for a short while due to incarceration and living in a city with a rapidly growing crime rate Chanique J overcame these obstacles and graduated from Eastmoor Academy high school and continued on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources the same year she had her precious son Ke-Chan.
Growing up Chanique always kept a diary and loved writing little short notes or poems. Her passion for writing turned into an even greater passion for reading once she discovered a genre that grabbed her attention. As an adult she devoted an entire summer vacation to reading and then she took a shot at putting some of her writings into a book and it's been uphill ever since.
To date Chanique J currently has nine books completed which include three complete series and one anthology. Her first book No Love Given is one of the completed series and a must read. Chaniques motto is "When you remain focus and determined you no longer have to dream, because your dreams become your reality...my dreams are my reality."
