Taneshia Brown, a native of New Mexico, is the second child of Howard and Fannie Baker. She was raised by both parents in a loving home with two other sisters. Although as a child she dreamed of becoming a lawyer, life would bring her to another passion: writing. This passion is demonstrated in her first book, My Journey, His Purpose. In My Journey, His Purpose, the author relives both painful and difficult memories to unearth the magnitude of God?s power and purpose. She began writing in high school as part of a post-traumatic therapeutic regimen. As a rape victim, single mother, and domestic violence survivor, she fought through the low places in life to acquire several college degrees.… She later sharpened her writing skills while blogging for the Examiner and Jambalaya Magazine. The author has continued to rise from the ashes under the cover of God to volunteer, guest-speak, start a nonprofit organization, and now write her own memoirs in order to reach and teach others who have found themselves in similar circumstances. Her journey has taken her from a broken, battered, and lost shadow to a fulfilled, renewed woman, wife, mother, and survivor. Her unique voice speaks volumes to tragedy and triumph.
