More About the Author
AUTHOR and DIRECTOR
Smart, ambitious, and never willing to accept no for an answer. It's what defines rising writer-director star Jennifer Brown-Thomas, and her drive is definitely paying off.
At just 25 years old, the book author and movie director phenom has her first novel, Blissful Lies, published, topping charts and on sale nationwide on e-books and at Barnes & Noble stores.
Certain to see her star shine all the way to Hollywood, Brown-Thomas' talents were on display at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where she presented Blissful Lies the movie to arousing ovations. YTINIFNI Pictures, the widely acclaimed movie distribution company, noticed the artistic value in her work, and is now working on deals to bring the film to the big screen and television sets around the globe.
However, Blissful Lies is merely the start of the Brown-Thomas empire. The hard-working writer-director is also in the process of writing her second manuscript, Vindictive Grounds, which will also become a published novel.
And, she doesn't stop there. Brown-Thomas has also partnered with fashionista and Runway Ready owner, Fanitsa Limberis, to form Limberis Brown Thomas Enterprises (LBT). Together, LBT plans to create a fragrance line, clothing line, coffee shop and more.
Often referred to by her friends and family as "Super Woman," Brown-Thomas can really do it all -- and, with a humble attitude - a trait she learned from Teenia Brown, her mom and manager.
Growing up an only child, Brown-Thomas found it easy to dream big with the unyielding support of those near and dear to her. Always on a mission to exceed expectations, she graduated a year early from High School, participated in many sports, and volunteered for youth organizations in the area. Now an alumna of Texas Christian University, she is enjoying post-graduate life as an author and director, wife and mother.
"I always knew she was driven, but I see now that when Jennifer sets her mind on something there's just no stopping her. From the minute she sat down with her laptop to write the screenplay, I knew it was the start of something huge," said Teenia.
