North Carolina native and Children's Book Author and Entrepreneur T'Keyah has been writing, and creating things her entire life. Her passion for reading and writing first developed when she would spend hours at a time with her dad at the local public library after school. Whether it be in the form of poetry, drama, non- fiction or through picture books — she has always used writing as a tool of expression. T'Keyah made it a priority to write about things that meant to uplift, motivate, inspire, and be relatable culturally, regardless of socioeconomic status.

While she’s the amazing children’s author she is today. Her passion for tea stemmed from watching her dad make tea everyday before he went to work. “It was like watching and science experiment. You had to get it just right.” Little did she know she was going to become a maker herself. 

T'Keyah is a proud graduate of a Historically Black College and University in Raleigh, North Carolina.
