Regina Smith-Gipson “Author Reina Queen” is an urban fiction author signed with Soulja Choc Presents. Reina Queen is a native of Mansfield, Louisiana but is currently living in Monroe, Louisiana. She graduated from Mansfield High School and obtained her bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems Support from the University of Louisiana at Monroe (formerly Northeast Louisiana University). She has had a passion for writing since high school, beginning with writing poetry. It was a short story written in college that had her mind set that she could be a writer when the professor believed her nonfiction story was actually based upon true life events. After a few setbacks, she thought it would be impossible for her to resume her passion for reading and her dreams of writing. After reading her first ever Urban Fiction novel, she realized her passion was for Urban Fiction. She started writing as a hobby until she received motivation from some friends that she should pursue it telling her “it won't hurt to try, you will never know until you do.” She never thought she would make it to this spot of being a published author. Pushing through obstacles and staying focused, she kept in mind to not give up, to accomplish her goal and use her gift. As an older person starting out in this industry, she thought the industry was mostly for the younger people, especially Urban Fiction. She knew she had the talent but was just scared to pursue it. “Never let fear stop you from being what you want to be. God has given us all gifts and we need to use them. If I would have sat on my gift, I would be giving up and not making a good example for my daughter.” Her hobbies include spending time with her family, reading, cooking, and staying involved with her church.
