Skyy is a 30-year-old author, and screenwriter from Memphis, TN. Her first novel, Choices, was released in 2007, and quickly gained popularity both within the gay and lesbian community and the urban fiction community. The highly anticipated sequel, Consequences, was released in 2009 with high praise, and rocketed to the top-10 best-seller lists on Amazon.com as well as at independent bookstores across the country. Even years after being released Choices is still rocketing into fame now being published internationally and being one of the first urban lesbian books to be sold in Walmart stores.
Touted as the next E. Lynn Harris, Skyy blurs the lines between lesbian and straight communities in her fiction by speaking with intimate familiarity about the striking commonalities of loving and living as African American women in urban America. The books resonate with truisms among women of all ages and gender identities.
Currently Skyy is focused on writing new novels and transitioning into screenwriting.
