First, let me help you out. My is pronounced Ki-eek-sa. If you still can't say it, you can just call me Kie (like Pie).
I am the eldest of 11 children between my mother and father. I am the proud mama bear of 4 children. I am especially proud of how far my children have come. It hasn't been an easy road for them growing up, and I wasn't able to provide much for them, but still, they rose and have achieved more than I, at their age.
A pen and a blank piece of paper became my best friends when i was young. I enjoyed being able to jot down how I was feeling, whether things were at their worst or their best. By the time I reached High School, I was madly in love with all things creative, as they allowed me to express how I was feeling in a new way. Though I left high-school with out my diploma, and gave birth to my 1st two children by my 21st birthday. I never allowed it to hinder my smile. Having little to no family support though, made the journey that much harder.
A survivor of childhood abuse and domestic violence, I've endured things that rattled my faith in love, trust and the beautify of life. Yet, somehow I picked my head up and move forward, with a smile on my face. No matter how many times I fell, I found the inner strength to brush myself off and try again.
After many years of people around me insisting that I had a story to share. I finally accepted it was my destiny to share my personal story of survival with the world. My goal then and now is to create more than just simple fictional stories. My novels aspire to entertain, as well as provide life lessons mixed into the drama, humor, faith, mystery and romance of the characters journey.
With my literary debut, Beautiful the first in a 5 part book series entitled the "BEAUTIFUL Mess Series", I am well on my way. Its first sequel, "Beautiful Seduction" touches upon topics on many taboo life topics. It is a book that has many subjects contrast to Beautiful in language, but along the same path with intent.
I also have a book of poetry, a cookbook,an anthology submission in "Voices Behind the Tears", dealing with Domestic Violence published by Saving Lives Through Lit, an anthology submission in "Untapped:a collection of Erotic Firsts" published by Naughty Ink Press, a book of short stories dealing with trials women go through "PHAT Gurl Diaries", and the eventual Auto Biography, "From Behind the Eye of Kie", all planned for publication in the future.
Professionally, I am half of the radio duo on blogtalk radio "Tony n Kie Show". I'm also a book reviewer for So Fyh Magazine & DiamondStar Entertainment. I have written articles, been interviewed or featured in, TheCEOMamma, SheBiz.net, Soulful nights, Christian Women Lifestyles Xpress, On the Rise Magazine, Sormag and more. Together with my business partner and husband, TonyWade, we have begun the journey to open a business to help independent artist of all genres gain exposure. SweetReadz Bookstore will be open soon online and storefront coming thereafter to Richmond VA.
