Multiple Award-Winning and National Bestselling Author

As Mercy, I am a bonafide Romance cultivator with over 30 titles under my belt. Between the pages and through the bleeding ink of my pen, I urge to create whimsical stories that depict the truth about black love with relative situations, circumstances, and characters. Mercy is a penman derived from a deeper desire to tell of less complex, circumstantial, stereotyped, and biased stories of black and interracial love. My goal is to highlight the misconception that black love stories can be everything BUT pleasant, joyful, everlasting, and beautiful. 

In early 2015, I debuted my very first title, as a published author. Since, I've gone on to create over 39 pieces, over 35 of them resulting in bestsellers, and collectively published over 100 books! I've MERCILESSLY built a 6-figure empire by breaking every barrier set before me. My world renowned series, "RahMeek and Bella: A Philly Love Story," made it's first appearance in August 2015, sparking my love for literature in the most whimsical manner.

A perimeter pushier and boundary breaker 5’2 force of literature, I've adopted the pseudonym, The Literary Heroine. As an independently published author, I debuted her first title in 2015. Since, I've become a resourceful alliance in the literary industry, brushing shoulders with other world-renowned pen pushers and aiding countless authors with the material and coaching needed to tackle their literary career with confidence.

As Editor in Chief and Founder of Written In Color Magazine, my goal is to highlight African American contributions to the literary and entrepreneurial realm of society. The absence of colorful faces and melanin infused skin sparked an ever-growing publication that is food for the soul. The quarterly publication debuted in October 2017, and sold out within a week of publicity.

Currently writing. And while I had a difficult time finding my footing, my male character is finally speaking loud and clear. He disappeared on me when it was time to develop his character, and I began scribing the story without completing his workup. Poor me. I'm in chapter three (plus a prologue) and I'm just discovering who he really is. Besides that small hiccup, the book is flowing well with my current mood. Oh, I guess I should mention that it is Freeing Nieem that I am writing, a spin off to The Mercer's of Urban Tales.
