It is FOR and ABOUT authors. Here we shine the light on authors who we’ve read, reviewed and recommend to others. In this edition we are shining our light on another gifted author...
Inspired by events in her own life, Latisha Patterson’s debut fictional novel, “Airing Out Dirty Laundry,” eases readers in and out of drama by intertwining real-life situations with love-hate characters who are forced to face skeletons in their closets. Born and raised n Richmond, Virginia, Patterson began writing in high school, with a focus on poetry and short stories. A passion for turning her imagination into literature for the world to see led her to launching her literary career in 2007. She still makes time for formal education, having already earned an Associate's Degree in Business Management and currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing.
Patterson is the doting mom of two daughters, Mikiya and Tayanna.
