Bio: Suzette D. Harrison, a native Californian and the middle of three daughters, grew up in a home where reading was required, not requested. Her literary “career” began in junior high school with the publishing of her poetry. While Mrs. Harrison pays homage to Alex Haley, Gloria Naylor, Alice Walker, Langston Hughes, and Toni Morrison as legends who inspired her creativity, it was Dr. Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings that unleashed her writing. The award-winning author of Taffy is a wife and mother who holds a culinary degree in Pastry & Baking. Mrs. Harrison is busy cooking up her next novel…in between batches of cookies.
Favorite thing about being a writer: The joy of living in someone’s head!
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Expanded exposure, marketing, and promoting
Favorite books: Sugar by Bernice McFadden, Standing at the Scratch Line by Guy Johnson, The Sisterhood of Blackberry Corner by Andrea Smith, and any and everything Dianne McKinney Whetstone has ever written!
Awards/special recognition: Building Relationships Around Books (Christian Fiction, 2016); Black Pearls Magazine (“Top 10 Authors of the Year, 2016).
UPDATE: Taffy was just awarded the 2017 Romance Slam Jam “Emma Award” for best cover. Check it out!
