Author Shenette R. Pierce

Hello, and welcome to my online home. So you’re here because you want to know more about me. Well, you have come to the right place!

I can easily give you a cookie-cutter biography about myself, but that just isn’t me. Being the seventh child out of eight kids was nowhere near a perfect life. It was good, don’t get me wrong but having to share everything and getting ruffed up by my lovely siblings was not all peaches and cream. However, I will always and forever give God and my family credit for protecting me from mean-spirited people when I was young and for making me into the person that I am… a fighter.

I’m very outspoken and can thank my beautiful, lovely Mommy for that. My dad and mom also taught me to never give up on my dreams, even if it seems that things are not going right, and to pray for peace and understanding. These lessons followed me throughout my teen years and had continued into my adult life.

One lesson, in particular, was when I wrote my first play for my church director for Christmas, but when she decided to go with Christmas speeches instead. I thought I had failed but realized that the screenplay would be just the tip of the iceberg for me.  I continued to write well into my college years. I entered Poetry Slams and received great feedback. After graduating from the University Of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, I thought for sure I was going to be this famous writer everyone would come to know, but God had other plans.

The trials and tribulations I went through while living in Dallas TX, for seven years humbled me, something I can now say I didn’t possess when I first moved away. Now, I’m doing what God has gifted me to do I LOVE it!
